Did You Know?

This year Eddy and Gearing students participated in Social Studies Olympiad.  Brooke Nowakowski organized both teams to participate in off site events and the kids competed against teams around the state in a variety of events including quiltathon, poster design, poetry, take a stand essay writing, primary documents journal, prezi design, and historical newscast.  The students worked very hard outside of school, and we ended up with three winners!  This past Saturday, the students attended an awards ceremony at MLK High School in Detroit.  Our Eddy winners were:  Emily Domagalski- a gold medal in Poetry, Madi Chamberlin- a gold medal in Take a Stand Essay, and Corbin Achatz- an honorable mention in Primary Documents Journal.  We would also like to recognize participants who did not win an award but put forth effort to participate in Social Studies Olympiad.  From Gearing, participants were Nathan McDonell and Madelaine Ecarius.  From Eddy, participants were Gillean Lobeck, Patrick Mason, Jenna Click, and Maria Zyjewski. Congratulations to all!

On March 24-26, 1916, the first High School State Basketball Tournament (a precursor to the current MHSAA Basketball Tournament) was held at Eastern Michigan University  (originally known as The Michigan State Normal School) in Ypsilanti, Michigan. The tournament was organized by Michigan State Normal School Coaches and Staff W.T. Samson, Elmer Mitchell and Wilbur Bowen (credited by many with inventing the striped referee jersey still in use today).

Although the tournament was not the first high school tournament in the country, it was the first in the State of Michigan. Three hundred invitations were sent out to "Class B" schools with twelve teams responding and eventually participating in the tournament.

The original 12 schools that played in this first tournament were:

Marine City          Dundee
Milan                    Mancelona
Farmington          Elkton Royal
Oak                      Middleville
Lansing                Mt. Clemens
Wayne                 Saline 

Marine City and Dundee each finished the tournament with a record of 5-1. A one-game playoff saw Marine City defeat Dundee, 23-22.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary, Saturday, February 20, the MCHS Boys Basketball Team, their coach, DJ Decker and AP/AD Chris Ming attended the EMU-Toledo basketball game where at halftime, representatives from the original twelve schools were recognized.
