CYC St. Louis Cardinal Night

St. Charles BBall player/teams earn RAS

This past weekend Ryan Charlesworth and two teams, ICD-Craig and St. Joseph Cottleville-Vermiglio were recognized for their Random Acts of Sportsmanship (RAS).

Ryan Charlesworth is on the 8th grade team at St. Patrick.  His team played a fast paced, hard fought game against Holy Spirit.  The lead changed hands many times, especially in the last few minutes of the game.  Ryan was involved in a collision with a Holy Spirit player who went to the floor, as did Ryan.  Ryan got up and immediately went to check on his opponent to make sure he was OK, which he was.  Great Sportsmanship Ryan!

Dan Lane officiated the Junior Boys high school basketball game between ICD-Craig and St. Joseph Cottleville-Vermiglio.  He said it was a competitive game but the boys on both teams were very respectful to the officials and each other.  His quote was, "I've seldom enjoyed reffing a game so much!"  It is obvious these teams reflect the attitude of their coaches who set a great example of sportsmanship.  Then the gym director chimed in to mention it was the last game of the day in the gym and both teams went out of their way to put chairs away and clean up the area around their benches before they left the gym.  Good going guys!

Help us recognize Random Acts of Sportsmanship.  If you see a player, coach, team, official or fan that goes out of their way in the name of sportsmanship please send an email to with the details.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports!
