Cascades Conference golf to pilot scoring application

Photo courtesy iWanamaker.com   By Jeff Steers JTV Sports   The Cascades Conference is expected to be one of the leagues that will pilot a mobile application technology allowing golfers, coaches and fans to view live leaderboards during events. The idea came from a Michigan High School Athletic Association golf council meeting attended by East Jackson High School golf Coach Ray Hill. The longtime golf coach said the recommendation to try such a system by council members. Last May three schools “came out of nowhere to qualify for the state meet,” Hill said. “There was a serious suspicion of stroke shaving was going on,” Hill said. “It knocked a number of teams out of the state meet.” iWanamaker Golf combines desktop and mobile application technology to allow golfers to view live leaderboards during events and tournaments.

By Jeff Steers JTV Sports   Two teams looking to make a run in the Michigan High School Athletic Association playoffs met in the district final on Friday at Napoleon High School. Unfortunately, only one could move on. Michigan Center High School made a number of big plays in overtime to earn a 49-44 win over Grass Lake in the Division 3 district final. The Cardinals will move on to play the regional round at home beginning Monday at 5:30 p.m. against Springport. Grass Lake goes home with a 21-2 record and a Cascades Conference championship. Both of their losses were to Michigan Center. The Cardinals defeated Grass Lake early in the season and the Warriors returned the favor with a 3-point win later in the year. “We learned from the run last year to play every possession like it was your last,” MCHS Coach Joe Lusk said. “Because it could be.” Both teams feature a number of underclassmen and this could be the beginning of two or three years of great duels.
