MHSAA Record Book

If you have information you believe should be included in these records (additions, deletions or corrections), it may be submitted one of three ways:

  1. Submitted by a MHSAA member school athletic administrator on official office letterhead, or by using the National Federation Record Application (Note: The Federation form is a fillable Word document and may be emailed to the address below. You may also attach supporting documentation to the email).
  2. Submitted by a media member on official office letterhead, enclosing appropriate documentation.
  3. Submitted by a member of the public with appropriate documentation, including the names and phone numbers of contact people at the school involved. The school will then be contacted to verify the information.  Due to the high number of submission received, no action will be taken on undocumented information.

To submit changes, mail to: MHSAA Record Book, 1661 Ramblewood Dr., East Lansing, MI 48823. Phone: (517) 332-5046. E-mail: records@mhsaa.com. Appropriate documentation shall include, but is not limited to, the following: copies of scorebooks or game/season statistical summaries, copies of yearbooks, and copies of newspaper clippings. The Record Book is updated on a seasonal basis when possible.

Coaching Records

Career Victories (*active)
NOTE: To be included in this list, a school must first submit year-by-year records to the MHSAA office for a coach with more than 200 career wins. Thereafter, schools must submit updates after each season to the MHSAA office. NOTE2: Coaches are organized below based on wins while guiding Michigan schools, with overall records in parentheses for those who also coached high school teams in other states ( denoted by #). Coaches with more than 200 career wins at the high school level, but fewer than 200 in Michigan are listed and ranked by wins in this state.
