Bronson senior Alexa Ratkowski was honored over the weekend at the Breslin Center as one of 32 MHSAA/Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete Award winners, and she’ll also leave high school this spring as an MHSAA volleyball record holder.

The Vikings’ senior setter finished a four-season varsity career with the most assists, 5,610, during the rally scoring era (2005-) in leading Bronson to the Class C championship in the fall.

She had 1,675 as a senior, with that total third-highest for one season. Ratkowski also made the career aces list with 320, and teammate Jill Pyles made the single-season list as a junior in the fall with 184.

Jackson Schrameyer became one of 15 players to make at least 20 free throws in a game when he connected on 20 of 21 attempts for Traverse City Central in a game against Traverse City West on Dec. 15.

A performance from nearly 40 years ago was added for most points in a quarter. Bronson’s Rod Hathaway scored 27 during the fourth quarter of a 1977 Class C District Final win over Cassopolis, tying for what remains the second-most points in one quarter. He finished the game with 45 points.


Tyler Santangelo started for his third season in the fall for Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood, and the junior led the Cranes to a 9-2 record, its best since 2004. He made the MHSAA records six times, for 180 completions, 291 pass attempts, 2,085 yards, 26 completions in a win over Madison Heights Lamphere on Aug. 27 and six touchdown passes in both a half and for the game in a win over Madison Heights Bishop Foley on Sept. 13.

Despite a 55-28 loss to Boyne City, senior receiver Tyler Case made the records for Kingsley catching six passes for 253 yards; two receptions ended in touchdowns, and his yardage made up all but 44 for his team in the game. Case finished his season with 14 catches for 423 yards and five touchdowns.

Longtime Millington football coach Tim Furno finished his career with a 208-110 record after the 2009 season to rank among the winningest coaches in the sport. He took over the program in 1978 and led the team to five seasons of at least 10 wins, with a best 11-2 finish in his final season.

Longtime Mount Pleasant Sacred Heart coach Rick Roberts retired after this fall with a 202-145-1 record over three decades and tenures at four schools – Saranac from 1978-85, Vestaburg 1986, Stanton Central Montcalm 1987-89 and Sacred Heart from 1993-2015. His Irish finished 6-4 in his final season.


Rochester’s Haley Lenderman struck out 21 Oxford hitters on April 1, 2015, although her team lost 4-1 (only two of the runs were earned.). She’ll continue her career this spring at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.

Jordyn Look is in line for a strong finish to a great career at Tawas. She’s in the MHSAA record listings for doubles in a season twice – 18 as a freshman in 2013 and 16 last season – and also for career doubles with 48 and with a season to play. Former teammate Courtney Flory also was added for her 17 doubles in 2014. The 2014 Tawas team was added with 66 doubles and the 2015 team with 82 doubles and 244 runs batted in, and Look also made the hitting streak list for a 20-game run during April and May of last season.  


Dearborn Heights Annapolis coach Victor McGuire has joined the list of winningest coaches in his sport. His team finished 38-4 this winter to push McGuire’s coaching record to 548-184 dating to the 1992-93 season.

Girls Basketball

Hemlock’s 18-6 run this season was fueled in part by more successful 3-point shooting. The Huskies made single-season lists with 170 3-pointers and 552 attempts, and also for making 14 3-pointers Jan. 5 against St. Louis.

Senior Mia McLaughlin made nine of 15 3-point shots for Frankenmuth in a Feb. 6 win over Birch Run as the Eagles made the team record book list with 15 3-pointers total. They also were added for 14 3-pointers in a Feb. 20 win over Bay City John Glenn. McLaughlin will continue her career at Ferris State.

Seniors Autumn Tremblay and Ceara LeBlanc earned Brimley’s first girls basketball record book listings this season. Both made single-game lists in a Feb. 27 win over Harbor Springs Harbor Light Christian – Tremblay scored 21 points during the first quarter and LeBlanc had 16 steals for the game – and LeBlanc also was added for 141 steals total over 25 games this past winter.

Reed City’s run at the Central State Activities Association title this winter was fueled in part by 3-point shooting. The Coyotes finished one game out of first, but made the records with 517 3-point attempts over 24 games – and just missed the made 3-pointers list connecting on 143.

Howell sophomore Gabrielle Piepho added her third record book listing over her first two seasons this winter making 89.2 percent of her free throw attempts to rank eighth on that single-season list. Howell as a team also made the 3-point attempts list with 536 over 25 games, and also just missed the 3-pointers made list with 146.

Saline finished the 2023-24 season among the all-time leading 3-point shooters again, this time with 192 – 14th-most for one season – in 587 attempts over 24 games. Sophomore Keira Roehm led the way with 78 3-pointers, tying for 21st on that list.

Junior Tamerah Peterson led Sterling Heights Parkway Christian to a District title this season, providing a record-setting defensive boost in addition to her offensive skills. She finished with 173 steals – eighth-most for one season – over 21 games.

Niles Brandywine reached Breslin Center this season with another stellar distance shooting display, making the record book with both 186 3-pointers and 610 attempts from beyond the arc in finishing Division 3 runner-up.

Alie Bisballe capped her career at Lake City this winter by helping her team reach the Division 3 Semifinal at Breslin Center – and by reaching the MHSAA girls basketball record book in two categories. The 6-foot-4 post player made the lists with 329 rebounds and 188 blocked shots, both in 28 games as Lake City finished 25-3. She will continue her career at Wisconsin.

Ironwood junior Hanna Vaughn will enter her final season next winter already on the career 3-pointers list. She’s made 155 3-pointers over her first three seasons and 70 games on varsity.
