LAKE ORION — Only two teams have been able to give Lake Orion much of a challenge this season. Sterling Heights Stevenson was not one of them. In a rematch of a 2008 regional final, the home-standing Dragons made sure they would not need to stage a game-winning field goal to advance. This time Lake […]

BY DAN STICKRADT SENIOR EDITOR dan.stickradt@northoaklandsports.com Twitter: @LocalSportsFans   For the past two decades, whenever Clarkston and Lake Orion were in the postseason at the same time, they were often lumped into the same district or region. Proximity-wise, this made sense, considering the two schools are only around 10 miles apart. This season, the two […]
