With the state finals in the books, it's time to see who will/should be good in 2018. Also, it will be interesting to see which new non-conference games are scheduled.

Three-fifths of the Lakes Eight have posted schedules.
Manistee: http://manisteehighschool.bigteams.com/ ... id/4301656 (open dates weeks 6 and 9; I did hear on another board that Cadillac (week 8) dropped them)
Muskegon Catholic: http://mcccrusaders.bigteams.com/main/t ... id/4284959 (open dates weeks 1 and 9)
Orchard View: http://orchardviewathletics.bigteams.co ... id/4295604 (open dates weeks 1 and 8)

Ludington doesn't post their schedule on BigTeams, but I did see that Inland Lakes (small Class C school near the Bridge) has scheduled them for week 1 in 2018 (IL is on BigTeams)

I've heard through the grapevine that Northpointe Christian is playing Manistee this coming fall as well.

Saw that Manistee has picked up both Calvin Christian and NorthPointe Christian in consecutive weeks to end the regular season.

Speaking of the O-K Silver, is Lee still in for 2018 or are they getting kicked out? I thought they would be kicked out because of their not having a girls basketball team each of the last three years despite being Class B, not to mention their lack of success in other sports.

As far as I know, they are not getting kicked out.  That's interesting that they haven't had a girls team in 3 years. I do think they still participate in enough sports to qualify in the OK conference.    As of late, besides getting better coaches in sports like football, they've really tried to build up the middle-school sports so that it carries on into the high school.  The last couple of middle-school football teams have been pretty good and the high school football team has made a huge push for their players to be in the weight room all year round.  Lee has a couple of the top guy sprinters in the state and their guys team is one of the conference favorites.
