This week’s edition introduces the first-ever MHSAA Cross Country Regionals for middle school/junior high runners, awards Game Balls to high achievers in tennis and soccer, explains the differences between football pass interference at the high school and college levels, and previews this fall's football playoff field selection.

The 5-minute program each week includes feature stories from around the state from the MHSAA’s Second Half or network affiliates, along with "Be The Referee," a 60-second look at the fine art of officiating.

"This Week in High School Sports" is powered by MI Student Aid, a part of the Office of Postsecondary Financial Planning located within the Michigan Department of Treasury.
