Griffin Seymour will head to Eastern Michigan University this fall as one of the most successful kickers in MHSAA history.

Seymour capped a 29-game career this fall with two MHSAA football records and nine listings total in the record book after helping Muskegon Catholic Central to back-to-back Division 8 championships.

He set both records during the Division 8 Final against Munising – in making all four of his extra-point attempts, Seymour set the season extra point record of 87 (surpassing the previous of 85) and the career extra point record of 165 (the previous was 164). Seymour kicked in one game as a sophomore and then 14 each the last two seasons.

He’s also listed for 85 straight extra points, the fourth-longest streak, making 10 of 10 attempts in two games and 75 total as a junior. He had five extra points in his team’s 2013 Final win over Beal City. Seymour reportedly will walk-on as a kicker on the EMU football team.

See below for more of this week's additions to the MHSAA record listings, and click on the headings to see those sports' records in full. 


  • New Lothrop senior Grant Steinborn also placed himself among the top extra-point makers in MHSAA history during a two-season varsity career. He booted 135 PATs in just 24 games over the last two seasons to tie for eighth on the career list, with his 74 as a junior ranking ninth and his 61 this fall also making the single-season list – he had nine in a game as a junior to make that ranking as well. New Lothrop finished a combined 22-2 over the last two seasons, making the team points list with 577 in 2013 and 539 this fall and for its average of 48.1 in 2013.

  • West Bloomfield’s 9-2 finish in the fall included a pair of record-listing performances. Junior quarterback Trishton Jackson threw for 2,046 yards – completing 124 of 210 passes – to make the season yardage list. Junior kicker Ari Goldberg connected on 46 extra points in 53 attempts.

  • Olivet freshman quarterback Parker Smith moved up to the varsity during the fall and into the record book with a 99-yard touchdown pass to Wyatt Smith in the Eagles’ 27-0 win over Parchment on Oct. 24. Olivet won the Greater Lansing Activities Conference title and finished 8-3.


  • Portland’s Tanner Allison capped his prep career in 2014 with some of the highest hitting marks in MHSAA history on his way to joining the Western Michigan University program. His 155 career runs, 189 career hits and 54 career doubles from 2011-14 made those respective lists, as did his 23 doubles last year for one season. The hits tied for 13th most, the season doubles tied for fifth on that list and the career doubles are fourth in MHSAA history. Portland’s team average of .372 last spring also made that category, and Josh Pleyte was added for his seven triples in 2009.

Girls Basketball

  • Jessica Murphy scored 30 points to go with eight rebounds and five assists in Oxford's Feb. 10 win over Bloomfield Hills – and also entered the MHSAA records by making all 17 of her free throws. Her total is fourth-highest for consecutive free throws made in one game. Murphy has signed to continue her hoops career at Wayne State University.

  • Breckenridge’s Erika Wendling accomplished much during her career ending in 2014, including a 15-steal game as a senior, Dec. 12, 2013, against Saginaw Valley Lutheran. She also ended as the first 1,000-point scorer in her school’s history and played this season at Mid-Michigan Community College.

Boys Basketball

  • Ben Carlson graduated from Manistique in 1996 but still holds six school records for this sport, including two that make MHSAA lists – his 201 career 3-pointers and 556 career assists over four seasons. The assists total ranks ninth in MHSAA history. Carlson also owns the school’s career scoring record of 1,495 points.

Boys Soccer

  • His totals would’ve stood third when he graduated from Bay City John Glenn in 2008, and Ty Richards now stands fifth in MHSAA history with his 159 career goals entered into the records. His 53 goals as a senior and 40 as a sophomore made the single-season list. His 52 career assists also ranked, and he’s sixth with 211 career points. Former teammate and 2009 grad Stefan Michalsky also was added for 55 career assists over four seasons, and John Glenn’s Connor Windiate was added for 50 goals in 2013. Windiate now plays at NAIA University of St. Mary in Kansas and Michalsky played at Delta College.


  • Sparta’s Jason Brew and Matt Armock have been added to the MHSAA list for 200 wrestling wins – Brew with a record of 204-16 from 2002-05 and Armock 202-11 from 2004-07. Armock was the 140-pound title in Division 2 in 2007 and 2006, while Brew was the 145-pound champion in 2005 and 140-pound in 2004. Brew later wrestled at Olivet College.

Delaney St. George helped Kingston reach its first MHSAA Girls Basketball Final this winter – and along the way finished her high school career among the most prolific 3-point shooters in state history.

The four-year varsity senior made 87 3-pointers this season for the Division 4 runner-up Cardinals, good to tie for 10th on the single-season list after she made 93 as a junior to rank fourth all-time.

She finished her Kingston career with 290 3-pointers in 793 attempts over 94 games – good for second on the career 3-pointers list.

See below for more recent additions to the MHSAA girls basketball record book, and click on the heading to see the record book in full.

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.

McBain sophomore Peyton Grant scored all 27 of her points Jan. 17 against Houghton Lake on nine 3-pointers to make the single-game list in that category.

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.
