Hurons gunning for fifth straight regional title

ROGERS CITY, Mich. — When it comes to softball regionals, the Rogers City Hurons are no strangers competing at this stage. This Saturday, the Hurons will look for its fifth straight regional crown. They have to win two games at Indian River to punch their ticket to states.

“We’re excited and we’re ready,” said senior Mackenzie Bruning. “We’ve been waiting for this moment and it’s our time to shine.”

Rogers city will collide with St. Ignace in the semifinal round. This will be the first meeting of the season between these two squads. Back in 2019, these two teams played each other in the regional semifinal round and the Hurons came up on top winning 6-1.

The Hurons know they need to set the tone early and carry that momentum through regionals if they want to bring another title back to Rogers City. “We’re just going to take it one pitch at a time, said Rogers City softball coach Karl Grambau. “I’m pretty confident that our girls will play the way that we’re capable of playing. We’ll do fine.”

First pitch for Saturday’s semifinal game is set for 12 p.m. The winner of this game will play the winner of Central Lake vs. Hillman in the finals.
