Girls Basketball Finals Group Ticket Sales Underway

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Oct. 8 - Group ticket sales are underway for the 1998 Michigan High School Athletic Association Girls Basketball Finals at Rose Arena in Mt. Pleasant, December 3-5.

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 $4.00 semifinal and $5.00 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."

Last year, approximately 1,000 tickets were distributed through group sales, helping the MHSAA set a new attendance record for the event.

In order to qualify for the discount, all orders must be submitted to the Central Michigan University Athletic Ticket Office, postmarked by November 13.

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 as a PDF file by clicking here.
