Colon’s first girls basketball regional appearance since 2002 ended with a 40-23 defeat to host Martin. The Clipper defense smothered the Magi, who extended their winning streak to 12 games.
Despite the defeat, it was a memorable season for Colon, who hadn’t finished above .500 in more than a decade. The Magi end at 12-11, including an 8-2 mark in their final 10 contests. Four seniors graduate for Colon; Christin Hicks, Katie Gentz, Jillian Kinstle, and Paige Smith.
Martin (22-1) will host Michigan Lutheran in the 6:30 p.m. regional championship Thursday. The Titans (22-1) mauled Fruitport Calvary Christian 54-20 in the second semifinal Tuesday.
