Spring 2019 BAYS Sportsmanship Awards

Spring 2019 BAYS Sportsmanship Winners

Wellesley Avengers girls’ Grade 5 team, coached by Tara Ventura and assisted by Kristen Walsh and Michael Flagg


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 will be 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 will receive special T shirts and a team picture will be posted on the BAYS website in recognition of this honor.  The Spring 2019 award recipients are pictured on this page.
After considering all of the submissions, and having investigated the comments received, the committee has selected the Wellesley Avengers girls’ grade 5 team, coached by Tara Ventura and assisted by Kristen Walsh and Michael Flagg, to receive the Spring 2019 Sportsmanship Award.  It should be noted that the team was recognized for demonstrating outstanding sportsmanship throughout the season and that all of the coaches were recognized for emphasizing sportsmanship during their previous coaching seasons as well.

Since the tone is set at the top, Tara is to be congratulated for setting the proper example for her staff, parents and players every season.  She is a credit to her town organization as well as to BAYS in general.
