A pair of Huskies are moving on up.

Port Huron Northern tennis player Franklin Brozovich and cross country runner Tyler Champenoy are headed to the collegiate level of play. The Port Huron Northern seniors signed their Letter of Intent to play collegiate athletics at a ceremony at Northern.

Brozovich will head to Division 1 Valparaiso University while Champenoy will attend Aquinas College, a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics school.

“It feels good,” Brozovich said. “It was nice to get it out of the way early so I know the rest of the senior year where I’m headed. I started at the end of sophomore year talking to people and I committed before the summer of my senior year.

“I wanted to go to a small school that was close to home and I like the class sizes there.”

Meanwhile, Champenoy found the right fit at Aquinas College.

“I chose Aquinas College because it felt very comfortable for me,” Champenoy said in a release. “Both the team and the coach were very supportive of me and it just felt like the right fit.”

Brozovich ended his career with a 82-32 overall record, but his coach Char Sweeney still believes he has untapped potential.

“He has just been terrific,” Sweeney said. “He has improved his strength. He has been exciting to watch. It was pretty clear when he was younger he would be a good player, but he evolved into a great player and even more importantly, a very classy competitor.

“You never know if he is winning or losing. He epitomises all you want your child to be. He has great manners; he always gives his best. He is the real deal. I don’t think he has reached his potential. As he competes at the next level, his game will grow and adapt.”
