In the newly aligned post-season tournament, both Skyline High School (Ann Arbor) and Grosse Pointe South High School look to defend their championship titles. 2021 Division I Champion, Skyline High School, returns key players in Junior Coco Courtright, a member of the USA Field Hockey U16 National Team, and Junior Cami Wiseman, who scored the overtime goal for the Eagles in the championship game.
Grosse Pointe South High School, 2021 Division II Champions, known for having a large, experienced senior class, graduated 18 seniors in 2022. The Blue Devils will be starting the season with a whole new line up, led by experienced incoming seniors Meredith Tiderington and Natalie Clarke.
New this season, the MHSFHL State Tournament will have two divisions determined by school size (in prior tournaments divisions were based on previous season performance). This adjustment eliminates the four mini-divisions that served regular season needs and fed into the two state tournaments. Notable changes include the move of large schools Rockford, Clarkston and Brighton to Division I, and smaller schools, Dexter and Liggett, to Division II. Both Liggett and Dexter are previous Division II State Champions.
Q: How are teams divided into Division I or II?
A: Teams are divided annually based upon the number of students attending each school.
Q: Are there Conferences?
A: Yes. Currently, the MHSFHL's 32 teams are divided into 4 conferences: Catholic, Independent, KLAA, SEC. Each conference is a blend of Division I & II teams and may also run conference championships & conference awards, separate from the MHSFHL.
Q: Where can I find Game Schedules/ Stats/ Standings?
A: Our home base on the web has changed and we are pleased to be hosted by the USA Field Hockey State Chapter Michigan this season. You can see game information by date or team, player and game stats as well as stories about events surrounding the season.
