The Grand Ledge Girl’s Water Polo team defeated Mason in thrilling fashion on Friday night, which in turn punched their ticket to Regionals for just the third time in the program’s history.
The Girl’s team was back in the pool Saturday with two more games to play – each for seeding purposes for the Regional Tournament set for this upcoming weekend. In the first contest against Birmingham Seaholm, the Comets couldn’t quite overcome the quick start the Maple’s had, dropping a close game 7-6.
That set up for a slug-fest against Birmingham Groves in the third-place game at Districts, which the Comets won 14-10, and tied a school record for highest finish at Districts at 3rd.
