State Champions!

Congratulations to the Central Lake-Ellsworth co-op football team on winning the 2017 MHSAA 8-Player Division 1 State Championship.

The team completed a 13-0 inaugural season playing in the 8-player division with a thrilling 32-30 come from behind victory over Deckerville in the championship game on Saturday at the Superior Dome on the campus of Northern Michigan University in Marquette.

Late Saturday night the team was welcomed back to Northern Michigan with a police and fire escort that began on the outskirts of Ellsworth and continued past cheering crowds in both communities before joining a welcome home pep rally at the Central Lake High School gym.

ECS would like to congratulate the players and coaches from both schools and their incredibly successful season.
