Tigers head to state semifinals

November 18, 2011 —

After a shutout victory over a Detroit area team that proved to be over-ranked, the Hudson Tigers are heading to one of the two state semi-final games this weekend.

The Tigers will meet Pewamo-Westphalia at Vicksburg High School, 501 East Hwy St., Vicksburg, MI on Saturday, November 19, at 1:00 PM.

According to Hudson Athletic Director Jeremy Beal, Vicksburg Athletic Director Mike Roy recommends the following directions: Take US- 127 North, then take I-94 west to Sprinkle Road, at Exit 80 on the east edge of Kalamasoo. Take Sprinkle Road about ten miles south into Vicksburg; turn left (east) onto East-West Avenue at the center of Vicksburg. The school is a short distance to the east.

The driving time should be about one and a half hours from Hudson.
