Eddies just miss out on qualifying for state finals

THREE RIVERS — Edwardsburg finished third at the Division 3 Regional hosted by Three Rivers Thursday, just missing out and qualifying for the state meet for the sixth consecutive year.

Jackson Parma-Western was the regional champion with 30 points, while Sturgis was second with 23 and the Eddies third with 16. Niles finished sixth with five points.

The Eddies’ last trip to the state finals was in 2019 when they finished 12th at the state finals. Edwardsburg placed ninth at the state meet in 2018. There was no 2020 spring sports season due to COVID-19.

The Eddies did have Leah Hosang advance to the state finals by winning the regional title at No. 1 singles.

She reached the championship match where she defeated Parma-Western’s Caroline Davenport 6-4 and 6-3.

Also making it to the finals was Edwardsburg’s No. 1 doubles team of Channing Green and Jenna McGann, who were defeated by Parma-Western’s Belle Sexton and Maria Macchia 4-6, 6-1 and 6-4.

The Division 3 state finals will be June 4-5 at Holland Christian and Holland West Ottawa high schools.
