TCC coaches have been saying all season how tough the eight-team conference in Monroe, Lenawee and Washtenaw Counties is this season. Now, the league will have a chance to show it.
The MHSAA playoff pairings will be announced at 7 p.m. tonight.
Whiteford (9-0), Sand Creek (8-1), Morenci (6-3) and Clinton (6-3) are already in – locked in with at least six wins. Summerfield (5-4) went into Friday’s game against the Aggies needing a victory to assure themselves of a bid, but after the results of all of the other games it appears the Bulldogs will have enough playoff points for an at-large bid.
If that happens, the TCC will have five teams in the playoffs for the first time in league history:
