When Walled Lake Central junior Taylor Krumm dove for third base during her final game of the Michigan Stars Tournament two weekends ago, an opposing fielder stood in front of the bag, hoping to tag her out.
But it wasn't a stranger in that green and white uniform; it was a friend.
Krumm and Pontiac Notre Dame Prep's Carly Joseph are members of the MHSAA Student Advisory Council. On this day, they also were softball opponents -- but not complete strangers, unlike most who face off over the course of a season.
In this week's SAC Sound-off, Joseph never mentions the score of that game -- Notre Dame won 2-1 -- but instead, the perspective she gained from this opportunity to see a familiar face on the opposing bench. Click to read her take.
