St. Louis Sports Commission's Sportsmanship Brigade finds more RAS

Once again the CYC would like to thank Solomon Alexander and his St. Louis Sports Commission's Sportsmanship Brigade for stopping by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta for Friday Night volleyball games.  The brigade found enough sportsmanship to give out 5 awards during the three matches.  Congratulations to all those that received awards, they should be proud of their Random Acts of Sportsmanship (RAS).  Here is what Solomon wrote in his blog about the evening:

Ferguson, Mo. has been the epicenter of community unrest in the St. Louis area over the last several weeks. Anger, passion, and uncertainty fill the streets on a daily (and nightly) basis. The situation has forced the region to examine race, law enforcement and its overall structure. Suffice it to say, life in St. Louis will never be the same.

However, unrest cannot be allowed to upset the lives of the youngest among us. The Sportsmanship Brigade visited Blessed Teresa of Calcutta parish in Ferguson on Friday night for three youth volleyball games. We went looking for good sportsmanship and were not disappointed.

Fifth graders from the host Blessed Teresa, Sacred Heart of Florissant and St. Rose Philippine Duchesne displayed tremendous sportsmanship and character during their respective games. Grace of St. Rose was hit in the face with a ball from Emma of Blessed Teresa. Emma ducked under the net and hugged Grace to make sure she was OK. Grace embraced her as well letting her know there were no hard feelings.

Our community could learn a lesson or two from these kids.

We invite YOU to be your own Sportsmanship Brigade and keep your eyes and ears open for any Random Acts of Sportsmanship you see at CYC games.  RAS can be by a player, coach, official and even fans.  When you see a RAS, please drop a note to buzzswanston@archstl.org so we can recognize and reward those actions.
