Ceremony to honor 1970-71 SHS boys basketball team that reached state finals

by Clyde Whitaker

Fifty years ago, the 1970-71 Stockbridge boys basketball team earned its way into the Michigan State Finals Championship Game.

Although Stockbridge would end up losing the game to Shelby, the team made the community and school proud. The 1970-71 team also put Stockbridge on the map as a basketball school.

Since then, no other Stockbridge basketball team has reached the state finals game.

A ceremony honoring the 1970-71 team will take place on Oct. 1 at halftime of the varsity football game against Lakewood.

Former players and cheerleaders will be recognized. A reception in the high school cafeteria will follow the football game.

Family, friends and fans of the 1970-71 team are invited to mingle and reminisce about those great times.

Questions about the ceremony should be directed to Clyde Whitaker; call or text 517-581-9412.

Lets make it a special night for all!
