Weekly reports of Random Acts of Sportsmanship


For the 6th basketball weekend in a row, a Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) was spotted and turned in.  In fact a number of them were reported. 

Starting with the Seven Holy Founders Joe Becker Tournament we want to commend the tournament committee for presenting a Tournament Sportsmanship Award.  That award went to St. Simon player Nick Stahl.  Congratulation Nick!  St. Simon's 8th grade girls team was mentioned by a fan as being great sports also.  They played the entire game with 5 girls and hustled the whole time, showing great determination and effort.  Finally, Tyree Wesley, a Loyola Academy player displayed his sportsmanship by helping an opponent up off the floor after a collision.  Nice gesture Tyree.

Then in a 7th grade boys game at the St Gabriel Herb Hartmann Memorial Tournament the opposing coach and one of the referees notice Tristan Brand of Sacred Heart-Valley Park acknowledging the good play of his opponents.  Throughout the game, Tristan would congratulate his opponents, St. Gabriel, when they made a free throw.  Here is what the St. Gabriel coach wrote, "It was very encouraging to see, and I thought others should be made aware of this.  Tristan scored 13 of his team's 30 points and was instrumental in leading his team to a narrow 4 point victory.  His parents and coaches should be proud that Tristan has athletic skills and spirit, but also respects and encourages the opponent while competing.  The confidence shown in those small gestures of sportsmanship is something to which we should all aspire."  Good going Tristan and thanks coach for sharing that with us.

If you see a RAS, please share it with us by sending an email to .  These are the acts that make CYC Sports more than just a game.  Good Sportsmanship makes Great Sports.
