|Big Sol with Holy Trinity. Spurlock is #20.|
The Sportsmanship Brigade recognized McKenzie Spurlock of Holy Trinity in St. Louis on Saturday. Spurlock’s 7th grade volleyball team took on St. Bridget in the Catholic Youth Council (CYC) quarterfinals. Brigade members have witnessed several great acts of sportsmanship during this volleyball season, but never with this much on the line. This is the playoffs. How would players act if a call went the wrong way or the score got out of hand? Well, McKenzie Spurlock showed us that good sportsmanship never takes a break and great players can have great attitudes. Holy Trinity and St. Bridget played three spirited sets and it was close throughout. Neither team lost its cool, but Spurlock stood out as she treated the game as if it were a family outing in the park.
