The latest edition of "This Week In High School Sports" features a report on Jacara Thompson, a girls basketball player at Swartz Creek; discusses Recruiting New Officials in its Be The Referee segment and finishes with an MHSAA Perspective on coach-player relationships in high school sports. 

The 5-minute program, powered by MI Student Aid, leads off each week with feature stories from around the state from the MHSAA’s Second Half or network affiliates. "Be The Referee," a 60-second look at the fine art of officiating, comes in the middle of the show; and is followed by a closing MHSAA "Perspective."
