Classy Holy Infant Ladies show Sportsmanship


                                  (file photo of post game handshakes, not Holy Infant and IC)

Immaculate Conception-Arnold coach Matthew Chrum sent us this note complimenting the players, coaches and fans of the 7th grade Ladies Cadet Closed division Holy Infant Basketball team.  "It can be very difficult being on the wrong side of a lopsided score in a playoff game, however, Holy Infant handled this situation with class.  Their players continued to play hard and never gave up.  After the game, they all had smiles on their faces and  congratulated us on the win, and wished us the best in the championship game.  What a great example of what CYC sports is all about, and we will remind our players of this as we prepare for the game.  Thanks you Holy Infant and congrats on being a true Championship Team!!"

Thank you Matthew for sharing that Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) with all of us.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports.  If you see a RAS please let us know.  You can email with a brief description of what you witnessed.  It can be a player, coach, official or fan!  We want to recognize each and every good sportsmanship deed.
