Millington (MI) plays their arch rival, Vassar, tomorrow in a girls boys varsity doubleheader. The towns are separated by only 7 miles on M-15 in Tuscola County, so the competition will be intense.

Millington would move on to win a regional championship and lose in the quarter finals. Interestingly, both teams are coached by fathers of kids on he team. Both teams are 3-1 entering the contest.

Millington does not have any seniors on the team and are hungry for their first district championship since 2008. They are led in scoring by junior Haley Trickey and rebounding by sophomore Elizabeth Selich. This is a team they may very well face in district and would like to get a decisive victory. Millington is coached by Aaron Chamberlain and Vassar by Brandon Baker.

The girls tipoff at 6pm with the boys to follow. Millington does a Detroit Piston style introduction of the starting lineups (lights off, spotlights, and music), so the atmosphere will be electric.
