EAST LANSING, Mich. - Oct. 6 - Group ticket sales are underway for the 1999 Michigan High School Athletic Association Girls Basketball Finals at Rose Arena in Mt. Pleasant, December 2-4.

Under the program, groups of 10 or more can obtain a substantial discount off the standard ticket price for any session of the semifinals or finals. For the girls basketball semifinals and finals, the discount is 50 percent off the standard $5.00 semifinal and $6.00 final ticket price.

"This is an excellent opportunity for school groups, youth teams and the like to come out and experience the excitement of high school athletics," said John R. Johnson, communications director of the MHSAA. "We hope that groups across the state will again take advantage of this opportunity to support high school sports."

In each of the past two seasons, approximately 1,000 tickets were distributed through group sales, and the event attendance for the past two years have hit all-time highs.

In order to qualify for the discount, all orders must be submitted to the Central Michigan University Athletic Ticket Office, postmarked by November 12. No orders postmarked after the deadline date will be accepted.

A Group Ticket Order Form for the MHSAA Girls Basketball Finals may be obtained from the CMU Athletic Ticket Office, Rose Arena, Mt. Pleasant, MI 48859; or can be downloaded from the MHSAA web site by clicking here.

The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary membership by over 1,300 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 conducted in 12 sports for girls and 12 sports for boys which attract approximately 1.3 million spectators each year.
