It's another Finals weekend, with MHSAA championships to be decided in three sports over the next two days. And Second Half will have coverage of every game, match and meet. 

Tune in late Friday for coverage and photos from the 8-player Football Final pitting Bellaire and Deckerville at Greenville High School. 

On Saturday, we'll have coverage of all four Volleyball Finals at Battle Creek's Kellogg Arena, plus coverage from each of three Lower Peninsula Swimming and Diving Finals thanks to our crew of knowledgeable correspondents. 

MHSAA 11-player football Semifinals are all Saturday, so keep an eye out later today for a brief preview of each of those games, plus the story of Saginaw Swan Valley sophomore running back Alex Grace. He's run for more than 2,000 yards in helping the Vikings get back to the Semis in Division 4.
