With the April 3rd win over Masco, MHS head coach Jim Rudloff got his 100th win at MHS and did it faster than any other coach in the history of Northshore football. Rudloff has amassed an impressive .78 win percentage, 9 conference championships, 11 playoff wins, and 2 MIAA Super Bowl appearances since taking over the program in 2009. "Congratulations" to Jim and his coaching staff!
