BUCHANAN, Mich. (WNDU) - Thursday is a huge day for the Buchanan Bucks baseball team.

The Bucks are the No. 1 team in Michigan in Division 3, and they’ll play against Grosse Point Woods University Liggett, the No. 2 team in the state in the state semifinals.

Buchanan has made it to the state championship four times in program history. Getting back to the state title game in 2021, after missing all of last season due to Covid-19, would mean the world for the Bucks.

“It would mean everything especially after last year not having a season,” Buchanan senior Jack Branch said. “We worked hard over the offseason and during the season to be able to get to this point and to be able to get to that championship game.”

Branch’s teammates are tooting the same horn.

“It would mean absolutely everything especially to everyone on our team,” Buchanan senior Levi Zelmer said. “Every single person works hard and this is just what our dreams are. This has been our goal to whole season - to win a state championship. We made it this far. We can’t just give up now.”

The Bucks will look to make it back to the state championship game for the first time since 2015 on Thursday.

First pitch is at 5 PM at Michigan State.
