Vikings reflect on memorable journey

STATE APPEARANCE–The Baraga Vikings made a state semifinal appearance last Thursday at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center. After defeating Pickford at the state quarterfinal on Tuesday in Munising, the team made the long journey downstate to go against the defending state champions, the Fowler Eagles. After an unusually quiet first quarter the Vikings fought hard to recover during the rest of the game, and got close several times. Baraga ended up bowing to the Eagles, 51-45, ending the season with a 23-2 record.

That brought the Vikings and their fans to East Lansing’s Breslin Center and the home of the Michigan State Spartans for the Division 4 state semifinals on Thursday against defending state champion Fowler.
