10 teams honored for sportsmanship

MILAN — Ten area football teams were honored for sportsmanship from the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association.

Benzie Central, Boyne City, East Jordan, Gaylord, Grayling, Lake City, Manistee, Petoskey, Traverse City Central and Traverse City West were among the MHSFCA honorees.

The award uses officials’ 2012 ratings provided to the Michigan High School Athletic Association after each game. The top 100 teams were honored and will be presented with banners.

Former Muskegon Oakridge coach Jack Schugars — the father of TC Central assistant coach Eric Schugars — will receive the Duffy Daugherty Memorial Award for lifetime achievement. In 32 year at Oakridge, Schugars won three state championships and were runners-up twice and had an overall record of 262.78.

MHSAA adopts heat management policy

EAST LANSING — The adoption of a heat management policy for MHSAA tournaments and a detailed model policy to be submitted to member schools for suggested use during practice and regular-season competition was the main focus of the Representative Council of the Michigan High School Athletic Association during its annual Winter Meeting on March 22 in East Lansing.

The policy, while not setting requirements for member schools, proposes actions based on heat index — the degree of felt discomfort derived by combining temperature and humidity measurements — that are designed to minimize the risk of heat-related illness during interscholastic participation.

It will be published as a recommendation for regular-season practice and competition in the 2013-14 MHSAA Handbook, and it will be mandatory for MHSAA tournaments beginning this fall.
