Montrose took first place in Best Play-By-Play (Eric Vandefifer, Trey Schmitz  – Boys Basketball game v. Lake Fenton), Best Single Camera Production with PlayOn! Sports graphics (Trey Schmitz, Andrew Morley, Eric Vandefifer – Girls Soccer match v. Hemlock), and the top two spots for Best Use of PlayOn!

The presentation will be shown live on MHSAA.tv as one of a number of live events being streamed online this year by School Broadcast Program members. 

In its seventh year, the School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by  creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events; with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics.  

The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.   

All sporting events – live or delayed - are available on a subscription basis only for their first 72 hours online.  They become available for free, on-demand viewing approximately 72 hours following their completion.
