The Micigan High School Athletic Association does not allow high school athletes to participate in national high school sports tournaments. If a student does, they then forfeit a year of athletic eligiblity. This is unfair as it does not allow Michigan athletes to develop into their full potential and represent our great state in their specific sports.
My name is Ric Hogerheide and I am currently a high school wrestler. Many seniors who wrestle face the issue of going to the High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals or playing a spring sport. This is unfair as some of the best wrestlers Michigan has to offer also excell in their spring sport and are not allowed to travel to the tournament.
