The link to “High School Sport Schedules” to the left of this message is a good way to stay up to
date with High School schedules.  Most ADs are using this site to post updates to schedules.  Enter
the name of high school in the “Find Your School” box and it will provide a list for you to choose
from.  To simplify the search, enter only the school’s name: for example “Milford” and then select the
appropriate school for the list.
