FARMINGTON HILLS — A year ago, the Port Huron Northern girls basketball team made it to the Class A quarterfinals.
This year, the squad brought back four starters and is as dangerous as ever.
On Dec. 3, the Farmington Hills Mercy squad was tied with the Huskies in the fourth quarter before eventually falling.
There may be no moral victories for Gary Morris and his Marlins, but there’s plenty to take from an effort like that.
“We’re very pleased with this team and how things are going so far,” Morris said a day after his Mercy squad fell to Northern 47-43 at Calihan Hall. “This is a group that works very hard in practice, and in these first few games, really competes.”
