Never too late for a RAS

     Although basketball season has been over for a few weeks, we do want to recognize Liana Johnson who plays on the St. Ann 8th grade basketball team with a Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) Award.  Her name was turned in by an official that worked the Championship game St. Ann played in.  Here are the comments he made concerning her obvious energy and sportsmanship:

  • her faith shine through loud and clear in her enthusiastic participation in the pregrame prayer.
  • she was humble during play, keeping a great attitude even whenshe missed a shot.
  • she is a great team player.  She apologized to her teammates in the lane when she missed a free throw.
  • she has great spirit and a fun heart.
  • During a stop in play she was dancing to the music being played - not in an attention getting way, but in a fun way, even though her team was behind.

      Congrats to Liana for enjoying her CYC experience.  We invite YOU to send us a RAS when you see one.  It can be a player, coach, official or spectator.  Just email a brief description of what you saw that stood out as Good Sportsmanship.  Send to .  Good Sportsmanship Makes Great Sports.

Our kids don’t have to choose between athletics and academics. They can walk and chew gum at the same time. They can have their cake and eat it, too. They can have it all.
