Sault Ste. Marie Girls Eye First U.P. Title

MARQUETTE – With the MHSAA Upper Peninsula swimming and diving finals on tap this weekend in Marquette, the Sault Ste. Marie girls program is looking to capture its first championship.

Up Swim Finals Prev Vo0Led by multi-time individual champion and Ali Robertson, the Blue Devils believe they have a great shot of bettering last year’s runner-up finish to finals host Marquette.

“On the girls side, the depth is unlike we’ve ever had before in our program,” Sault Ste. Marie coach Steve Habusta said. “Fastest girls group we’ve had in the history of Sault High, so it’s pretty exciting for us to take this group to the U.P. finals. On the boys side, we have top-end talent that this year is hopefully the year that we can go out there and achieve what we’ve been working for.”

On the boys side, the Blue Devils finished runner-up to Marquette a year ago and are seeking their fourth title and first since 2013.

The diving finals were held Friday while the swimming finals are set for Saturday.
