LUDINGTON — Two Ludington High School student athletes, Caleb Schoon and Mackenzie Luce, recently became Michigan High School Athletic Association scholar athlete finalists. The MHSCAA recently announced the 120 finalists in the state, with the top 32 earning $1,000 scholarships.

The program, in its 29th year, has awarded 736 scholarships to students who participate in at least one MHSAA-sponsored sport and own a 3.50 grade-point average.

Of the 32 scholarships, 12 will go to Class A athletes, eight to Class B athletes, six to Class C athletes and four to Class D athletes. Also, two at-large scholarships will go to minority student-athletes.

Finalists participated, on average, in 2.63 sports, with 65 finalists playing in more than three sports. The applications were judged by a 64-member committee of coaches, counselors, faculty members, administrators and board members.

Schoon and Luce will find out if they are winners on Feb. 13. Scholarship winners will be honored during halftime of the Class C boys basketball state final on Saturday, March 24, at Michigan State University’s Breslin Center.
