Michael's Cup

Seventeen high school athletic programs have been selected as CIAC Michael’s Achievement Cup exemplary programs recognizing their outstanding achievement as overall athletics programs for the 2012-13
academic year.

The 2012-13 Michael’s Achievement Cup exemplary programs by class:
LL: Cheshire, Fairfield Ludlowe
L: Bunnell, Hand
MM: Brookfield, Ledyard
M: East Catholic, Northwestern, Weston
SS: Bloomfield, East Hampton, Lyman Memorial, Sacred Heart
S: Gilbert, Notre Dame-Fairfield, Shepaug Valley

The 17 schools represent all six classifications and are selected based on achievement in seven distinct areas which are sportsmanship, participation, athletic scholarship, athletic personnel, equity, chemical free initiatives
and athletic achievement.

The schools will be honored at the CIAC Sportsmanship Conference at the AquaTurf in Southington on Nov. 21, and the overall Michael’s Achievement Cup recipient will be announced.
The Michael’s Achievement Cup was created in the early 1980s as the brainchild of Roy Michaels, the
owner of Michaels Jewelry, in an effort to recognize outstanding athletic programs. The program recognized yearly winners since that time, and then in 2008 transitioned directly to CIAC oversight of the program.
