One of the great features of the MHSAA School Broadcast Program is that there’s no limit to the different types of activities that can be covered, and some of that diversity will be on display this coming week on the MHSAA.tv website.
Haslett High School’s SBP students will be streaming live coverage of a wrestling dual with Lansing Waverly on Wednesday (Jan. 7) at 6 p.m. and a bowling match with East Lansing on Thursday (Jan. 8) at 3:30 p.m. That’s in addition to a boys basketball game Tuesday (Jan. 6) against Ionia and a girls basketball contest next Tuesday (Jan. 13) with Williamston.
On Saturday (Jan. 10), Montrose will live stream a bowling match with Byron at 2 p.m. Montrose, the SBP Program of the Year in 2013-14, also has a boys basketball varsity stream with Corunna on Tuesday, and a girls-boys hoop deuce with Mount Morris on Friday (Jan. 9).
Mason High School is planning coverage of a girls gymnastics meet on Wednesday with East Lansing at 6:30 p.m., which will be shown On Demand following the event.
The School Broadcast Program gives members an opportunity to showcase excellence in their schools by creating video programming of athletic and non-athletic events with students gaining skills in announcing, camera operation, directing/producing and graphics. The program also gives schools the opportunity to raise money through advertising and viewing subscriptions.
