Numbers aside at one of the state’s smallest school districts, it takes a little extra effort to be a student-athlete on Washington Island. The school fields teams in five sports including the recently completed seasons of trap shooting, cross country, and equestrian. When it comes to its upcoming basketball season, Washington Island School District superintendent Mati Palm-Leis says he has to be creative when scheduling games, especially when it involves bringing teams to play home games.
Palm-Leis says the school will host a community potluck dinner this Friday night in between their pair of doubleheaders with their special guests and basketball opponent Monroe County.
