A Trenton hockey title is our unique sign of spring

Itís hard to tell, especially after Wednesdayís heavy snowfall and subsequent deep freeze, but the Downriver area already has seen a sure sign of spring.

The Trenton High School hockey team won another state championship.

Thatís 14 state crowns for the Trojans, who easily turned away Hartland 8-3 in the Division 2 title game to win their first title since 2009.

Trenton has won at least one state championship in five straight decades ó hardly surprising given the support and reverence the community gives the high school team.

Under coach Mike Turner, the Trojans are a perennial title contender. This championship season had to be especially sweet for Turner, who became the stateís all-time winningest coach last month and collected his 11th trophy.

Turnerís stewardship at Trenton mirrors that of the late Lofton Greene at River Rouge. Greene, perhaps the best basketball coach in state history, guided the Panthers to 12 state championships during a three-decade run that ended in the mid 1970s.

And the Trojans hardly look ready to stop. When the first puck drops later this year, itís safe to assume Trenton will be among the teams expected to make the seasonís final weekend.

Congratulations, Trojans! Thanks for warming your city and the region with pride during this bitterly cold winter.
