Our Girls finished 11th in the State Meet on Saturday, but they walked away with much more! Our girls were voted by meet officials to receive the Sportsmanship award for the 4A division. The MPSSAA states:
The ultimate indicator of the value of school athletic programs must be the level of citizenship displayed by those who participate. Hence, teaching and exhibiting good sportsmanship is the fundamental objective of our program.
The “Respect the Game” initiative speaks to the heart of sportsmanship. There are no fancy strategies or lofty exhortations. There are no official pronouncements or haughty platitudes. The message is simple and direct. Let all of our actions be guided by respect. To achieve that goal, everyone is targeted in a way that relates to their individual circumstances yet collectively achieves a common goal.
We could not be more proud of these Girls for the respect they show each other, their opponents, and the meet officials.
Thank you Girls!
