Spring 2018 BAYS Sportsmanship Winners
Medfield United girls’ grade 8 division 2 team, coached by Jennifer Whelan, assisted by Heidi Lusby
Westborough boys’ grade 3 division 4 Liverpool B3 team coached by Adam Halem, assisted by Brad Rice and Matt Jordan
While BAYS expects all of its members to practice good sportsmanship as a general rule, we believe examples of outstanding sportsmanship should be recognized and rewarded.
Accordingly, BAYS has established a Sportsmanship Award which is presented to those teams that have been nominated and subsequently selected by the sportsmanship award committee to receive the award. Teams that earn the award receive special T shirts and a team picture is posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.
Nominations were received from referees and opposing coaches this season and there were a number of teams that exhibited examples of outstanding sportsmanship.
After considering all of the submissions, and having investigated the comments received, the committee has selected two teams, the Medfield United girls’ grade 8 division 2 team, coached by Jennifer Whelan, assisted by Heidi Lusby, and The Westborough boys’ grade 3 division 4 Liverpool B3 team coached by Adam Halem, assisted by Brad Rice and Matt Jordan, to receive the Spring 2018 BAYS Sportsmanship Award.
It should be noted that both teams were recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season and that the coaches were recognized for emphasizing sportsmanship during their previous coaching seasons as well.
Since the tone is set at the top, Jennifer, Heidi, Adam, Brad, and Matt are to be congratulated for setting the proper example for their parents and players every season. They are a credit to their town organizations as well as to BAYS in general.
Chairman, BAYS Sportsmanship Award Committee
