Girls Lacrosse Regional Preview

Written Sunday May 14th at 11:30 PM

Here is my insight and preview for the girls lacrosse regionals.

Regional 3 at Troy Athens

Grosse Pointe North vs. Grosse Pointe South

Utica Ford II vs. TROY


Grosse Pointe North/Grosse Pointe South vs. BLOOMFIELD HILLS

M-1 (ROYAL OAK/BERKLEY) vs. Utica Eisenhower



EARLY PICKS: This regional has Birmingham vs Bloomfield Hills written all over it. Bloomfield Hills beat Birmingham earlier in the season. The regional semifinals could be very interesting with the Bulldogs having a really tough path having to see Chippewa Valley and then Troy Athens in the second round and semifinals respectively. The Blackhawks have the much better draw to get to the regional finals. I like Bloomfield Hills over Birmingham in this matchup.


Regional 4 at Oxford

Midland vs. Grand Blanc

Fenton vs. OXFORD

Davison vs. Howell

CLARKSTON vs. Waterford

Midland/Grand Blanc vs. Hartland


Davison/Howell vs. LAKE ORION

CLARKSTON/Waterford vs. White Lake

EARLY PICKS: Lake Orion has a great draw to get to the regional finals. They will have to get by Hartland which will be a tough matchup but Midland could give the Eagles some trouble in the second round but it’s not likely. I think Hartland moves on over the Dragons.


Regional 6 at Farmington

FARMINGTON vs. Farmington Hills Mercy

Temperance Bedford vs. Saline

Ann Arbor Father Gabriel Richard vs. Wixom St. Catherine Sienna

FARMINGTON/Mercy vs. Dearborn Divine Child


Temperance Bedford/Saline vs. Ann Arbor Skyline

Ann Arbor Father Gabriel Richard/Wixom St. Catherine Sienna vs. Dexter

EARLY PICKS: This looks to be a very interesting regional. Dearborn Divine Child, Ann Arbor Skyline, and Dexter will be very tough outs. Ann Arbor Father Gabriel Richard has the best chance of upsetting the top three seeds. I think that the Falcons have the best chance to move onto the state semifinals.


Regional 7 at Adams

Birmingham Marian vs. Grosse Pointe Woods

Walled Lake Northern vs. ADAMS

AVONDALE vs. Warren Regina

Birmingham Marian/Grosse Pointe Woods vs. Detroit Country Day

STONEY CREEK vs. Pontiac Notre Dame Prep

Walled Lake Northern/ADAMS vs. Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kinswood

AVONDALE/Warren Regina vs. Bloomfield Hills Academy

EARLY PICKS: This is a pick em district. Birmingham Detroit Country Day and Adams are the two best teams in the district. Adams will have to deal with Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood in the second round. The Yellow Jackets should have a nice path but Stoney Creek could give them some fits. I think the two top teams will meet but Birmingham Detroit Country Day should move on to the semifinals.
