Fall Sportsmanship Awards Announced:
Recipients To Be Honored By MEEMIC Insurance

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Jan. 11 – Over 650 teams representing over 400 schools have been selected to be recognized for displaying outstanding sportsmanship during selected Fall Michigan High School Athletic Association post-season tournament competitions through the Good Sports Are Winners! Program, and all will receive awards ranging from framed certificates to commemorative banners and crystal trophies from MEEMIC Insurance, the Association's corporate partner in sportsmanship efforts.

The program is conducted in team sports, with schools being evaluated by tournament management at District, Regional and Final Round sites. This Fall, a total of 657 teams were selected from 426 schools in tournaments conducted in girls basketball, football and boys soccer. At the District, Regional, Quarterfinal and Semifinals levels of MHSAA tournaments, all schools which meet a set of high sportsmanlike standards are recognized. Those schools will be presented framed certificates from MEEMIC Insurance. Those teams will also be recognized through the publication of their names in the MHSAA Bulletin, the MHSAA Finals program series, and on the MHSAA Web site. During the course of the school year, over 1,500 teams will be recognized in 15 activities for their sportsmanship efforts during MHSAA tournaments.

At the Finals in those tournaments, schools judged to have met those standards are presented a crystal trophy and commemorative banner. Cheboygan in girls basketball and Muskegon Oakridge in football were selected by the tournament management at their respective finals for displaying the exemplary sportsmanship by their coaches, student-athletes and spectators. No team was selected from the Finals in boys soccer. Presentation dates at Cheboygan and Oakridge will be announced at a future date.

Cheboygan was a Semifinalist in the Class B girls basketball tournament; while Oakridge was the champion in the Division 5 football playoffs. It is the first time either school has been named a recipient of a Finals award.

Numerous schools will receive more than one award from Fall tournaments, with Muskegon Orchard View and Saginaw Nouvel heading the list with six each. Flint Powers Catholic, Kingsley and Macomb Dakota will each have five teams recognized.

The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary membership by over 1,500 public and private senior high schools and junior high/middle schools which exists to develop common rules for athletic eligibility and competition. No government funds or tax dollars support the MHSAA, which was the first such association nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament entry fees from schools. Member schools which enforce these rules are permitted to participate in MHSAA tournaments, which attract approximately 1.6 million spectators each year.

MEEMIC Insurance Company, with headquarters in Auburn Hills, writes full coverage private passenger automobile protection and homeowners insurance for educational employees and their immediate families in the state of Michigan .
