Baraga beats MC at host Munising

The Munising Middle/ High School gymnasium was packed by fans of the Baraga Vikings and the Mackinaw City Comets on Tuesday, March 14, as the local school hosted the MHSAA Division 4 Quarterfinals. It was the last basketball game of the season played in Alger County.

The Vikings started off strong, thanks to a 20-point first half from Corina Jahfetson. A late push by the Comets tightened things up to a 40-36 final in favor of Baraga.

The loss ended Mackinaw City’s season after finishing 25-2 with a conference championship and the school’s first regional title. Baraga (22-5) played Fowler (20-7) on Thursday night in a rematch of last year’s state semifinal at the Breslin Center, but the game finished after deadline of The Munising Beacon.
