Ledyard, Old Lyme among Michaels Cup winners

Ledyard High School and Lyme-Old Lyme High School were among 16 Connecticut High Schools being honored with a Michaels Achievement Cup Award for the 2019-2020 academic year, the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference announced on Tuesday.

Schools that are part of the CIAC's Class Act program can be considered for the Michaels Cup Award. The Michaels Cup Committee recognized the programs for their willingness to subscribe to the Class Act Sportsmanship standards, empowering students to take an active role in their school climate and their continued support for community service. The 16 schools have made sportsmanship a priority in their district. They will be formally recognized during the CIAC's virtual Sportsmanship Conference on February 10th.

The Michaels Cup was created in the early 1980s as the brainchild of Roy Michaels, the owner of Michaels Jewelry, in an effort to recognize outstanding athletics programs. Other winners of the award are Woodstock Academy, Amity Regional, Bethel, Bloomfield, Brookfield, Granby Memorial, Joel Barlow, Norwalk, Oliver Wolcott Tech, Simsbury, Stamford, Suffield, Westbrook and Weston.
