Random Act of Sportsmanship at CYC Golf Championships

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Golf is known as a gentlemen's/ladies' game.  You keep your own score.  Officals in black and white stripes, with whistles, yellow and red card can not be found on a golf course.  The spectators are much quietier.  They do not cheer very loud when a good shot is made, instead a polite golf clap.  Everyone is very congizant of the etiquette of golf.  They do not want to disturb another player on the course.  Golfers and spectators alike consider the other golfers on the course.


On June 23, during the CYC Archdiocesan Championship, one player, a 5th grade golfer from St. Ferdinand, Morgan Sansone, was recognize for her great sportsmanship.  She was always smiling, congratulating fellow players in her foursome when they hit a good shot. Keep in mind these are players from other districts, whom she just met that morning.  Her attitude and enjoyment of the game was contagious.  Morgan is the receipient of the Random Acts of Sportsmanship Award.
