SUBMITTING INFORMATION FOR THE MHSAA RECORD BOOK -  When submitting information for the MHSAA Record Book, please remember that some form of documentation is required, and the best forms of documentation are the scoresheet from a game, the season-ending statistics sheet for a season record, and the season-ending stats sheets for each season a young person plays for career marks.  News accounts of a record being set are good backs-ups, but especially for career and season marks, the paper trail is necessary. 

We don't have the staff to chase down potential records.  Please be sure a submission is complete when you contact us.
