East Lansing — Claudia Reid had 11 points and made some big plays during a 9-0 third-quarter run to lead DeWitt to a 44-36 victory over Saginaw Heritage Friday afternoon in a Class A state semifinal game at the Breslin Center.
Reid, a 5-foot-7 senior guard, had six assists and scored four during the pivotal run, starting it with two free throws and then ending it with a driving layup to open up a 28-20 lead.
DeWitt (25-1) led the rest of the way, making 13-of-17 free throws during the fourth quarter to earn its first state championship game appearance since 1977 when it won the Class C title. DeWitt will play in the Class A title game Saturday at noon.
Senior guard Allie Miller had 14 points for Heritage (22-4), scoring seven during the fourth quarter when the Hawks had trouble finishing around the basket and at the line, missing three of their five chances. They had 14 turnovers, five in the final quarter.
