|Athletes, coaches and parents…sportsmanship takes a village.|
On Friday night, St. Angela Merici met St. Norbert in an eighth grade volleyball match-up. St. Norbert is a well-oiled machine that breathes teamwork and sweats sportsmanship. These young ladies are a complete unit. They play at a high level while maintaining a high level of character. St. Norbert represents a prime example of winning with class. They played hard and played to win. Yet, they never disrespected their opponents through gloating or excessive celebration. It didn’t take long for Brigade members to determine that this week’s recognition would be a team award. Congratulations to coach Amy Porter and her entire team. St. Norbert is a near-perfect combination of class and skill.
The Sportsmanship Brigade is a group of Sports Commission volunteers who visit youth sporting events looking for acts of good sportsmanship. Those who display good sportsmanship are rewarded with a certificate of recognition and a gift card to a local business. For more on the Sportsmanship Brigade – including scheduling and volunteering information – please visit sportsmanship.org. Until next time…
Be a Good Sport!
