Northville advances to state volleyball semifinals with 25-23, 25-13, 25-21 victory.
Northville volleyball coach Amanda Yaklin could sense some nervousness from her team on the bus ride to Davison for Tuesday's state volleyball quarterfinal against Fenton. Those nerves were evident early in the match, as the Mustangs fell behind 5-0 and 8-2 early on. "That's (starting slow) been a pattern for us," Yaklin said. "So I don't burn timeouts on it, I just let them get the nerves out. This was the first time they'd been far away from home, it was a long bus ride and they were just silent and nervous the whole time. I knew when they got through those first few points they'd be OK." Northville chipped away at Fenton's lead in the first game, eventually tying the Tigers at 21 and then winning four of the next six points to win 25-23…

Jimmy Fiscus, 16, has accepted a scholarship to play at Michigan State University in 2014.
With the school year just getting underway, most high school juniors aren't thinking about college. But Northville High School junior Jimmy Fiscus has already decided that he is going to Michigan State University (MSU) in 2014. After MSU offered him a scholarship to play soccer a few weeks ago, Jimmy quickly said yes. "I really liked it there. They made me feel like family. Everything about it I liked. They gave me a great offer that I didn't believe I would get anywhere else, so I committed the day after," he said. Jimmy, a Novi resident, has played soccer since he was 4 years old and now plays center back for the high-level U-16 Crew Soccer Academy, one of two academy teams in Michigan.
