Performance of the Week: Forest Hills Central's Theryn Hallock

April 25, 2022

Soccer ♦ Senior

Hallock poured herself fully into basketball over her three years at Forest Hills Central, and before this spring hadn’t played competitive soccer since eighth grade. But her high school debut on the pitch has been nothing short of sensational. Hallock scored a hat trick (three goals) in four straight games, including an April 12 victory over Byron Center, which like FHC made the MHSAA Semifinals in 2021 – the Rangers in Division 1 and Byron Center in Division 2. After falling 2-1 to Richland Gull Lake in its season opener, Forest Hills Central is 6-1 this spring.

Hallock remains much more known for her accomplishments on the basketball court. A 5-foot-9 guard, Hallock was a Miss Basketball Award finalist this winter and averaged 26 points with 11.4 rebounds, 6.5 steals and 4.8 blocks per game. She will continue her basketball career at Michigan State, following her father Ty and brothers Tanner and Tate who all have played football for the Spartans; Tate is a junior this spring.

Be the Referee: Soccer Referee Jersey Colors

By Sam Davis
MHSAA Officials Coordinator

November 1, 2022

Be The Referee is a series of short messages designed to help educate people on the rules of different sports, to help them better understand the art of officiating, and to recruit officials.

Below is this week's segment – Soccer Referee Jersey Colors - Listen

A soccer match is about to start between two teams – one wearing road white uniforms and one wearing its home blues. It’s pretty easy to spot the referee in the middle of the field wearing a bright yellow referee jersey.

But what if the home team is nicknamed the Yellow Jackets and they are also wearing bright yellow jerseys?

Soccer officials come prepared. They have a number of different colored jerseys, so they can wear something that contrasts with both teams. While yellow is the default color, they can very easily change into a distinctive uniform if needed – as red, blue, green and black are also acceptable colors. They may even choose to wear a color different from what the goalkeepers are wearing. The last thing a referee wants is to be mistaken for a player on the field.
