The Mona Shores Sailors, led by an amazing performance by backup quarterback Brady Rose, stunned everyone by capturing a Division 2 state championship with a victory over favored Detroit Martin Luther King last Friday at Ford Field.

It was the first state football title in school history.

The special State Championship edition of the Local Sports Journal magazine documents the Sailors’ magic season – from the early loss to Rockford and the devastating defeat against Muskegon – to the inspired run in the playoffs that featured a trio of heart-stopping victories. Look for Brady Rose on the cover!

There are also stories and photos featuring Western Michigan Christian’s Division 4 state soccer championship, as well as the area’s three state cross country champs – the Hart girls team, Fremont boys team, and Western Michigan Christian runner Abby VanderKooi.
