MARQUETTE - Above and beyond.
Those are the words Ishpeming School Board President Geno Maino used to describe not just the Ishpeming High School football team's experiences, but the response to the drive to raise funds to send the team to New York City for the Sports Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year event next week.
"We have had a response above and beyond what we ever hoped," Maino said Thursday. While a final total has not been tallied, the drive to raise money for the Hematites trip surpassed the $3,200 needed to pay for lodging for the team.
