MARQUETTE - Some of the stories and legends from the past 130 years of U.P. high school athletics will be on display in a new exhibit titled "U.P. Power! High School Sports in Upper Michigan."
An opening reception, which will be attended by a number of U.P. sports legends, will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center at Northern Michigan University, located in 105 Cohodas Hall.
The exhibit will feature stories and artifacts related to the greatest teams, players and coaches in U.P. high school sports history. Photographs, trophies, uniforms and other memorabilia are on loan from high schools, historical societies and individuals. An interactive computer station at the exhibit will provide statistics for each team sport for boys and girls.

The exhibit will be on display at the Beaumier Center through March 30.
