BAYS Sportsmanship Award Recipients

BAYS expects all of its members to practice good sportsmanship. We believe examples of outstanding sportsmanship should be recognized and rewarded and created the BAYS Sportsmanship Award. The Award is given in both the fall and the spring BAYS season.

Sportsmanship Award nominations are received from referees and opposing coaches during the season. From these nominations, the Sportsmanship Award Committee determines which teams will be presented with the BAYS Sportsmanship Award. It should be noted that teams are recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season.

Teams receive special Sportsmanship Award T shirts and have their team picture posted here in recognition of this honor.

For Spring 2018 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.
