E mily Coveyou has watched St. Ignace play in plenty of semifinal games. She’s watched the Saints in state titles, too. But one thing is missing.
She’s never played in either of those games herself. And she really, really, really wants to.
“It is really important to me,” she said. “I’ve been one game away for the last three years. We really want to make it this year.”
The Saints and Coveyou have been close — close enough to make it sting all the more.
And to make things even worse, they have lost to the same team, Maple City Glenn Lake, in the quarterfinals two years in a row.
