Catholic Memorial wins sportsmanship award
WAUKESHA – Catholic Memorial High School has received the Classic 8 Conference Sportsmanship Award for the 2009-10 school year. The eight schools in the conference select a winner for each particular sport during that season and then the votes are tabulated to show the overall winner for the year.
N.B. A few weeks ago in a posting to this blog I made note of how sportsmanship, sadly, is not considered in the tabulation of the various rankings of overall athletics programs. Shouldn't sportsmanship be a criteria of a young person's success in sports?
CMH can be very proud of the fact that it has great success in the win/loss tabulations, but we should be even more proud that we can do that without sacrificing character and sportsmanship.
