Bertrand Is Awarded Sportsmanship Award

Though the lady vikings fell short of the state title, their effort on the court awarded them an even greater prize. The Bertrand High School was awarded the D1 Sportsmanship Award. This award is highly prized by schools that take a keen interest in promoting good sportsmanship. The committee that votes on each school’s sportsmanship performance rates the schools in the following areas: Players and coaches, student spectators, general spectators, band/cheerleaders, and administration visible and doing their jobs.

The committee representative indicated that they were very impressed that our band was at the games all 3 days and that the cheerleaders were active and also at the games all 3 days. The committee also mentioned that our spectators were fine and the players and coaches were sportsmanlike even when there were referee calls that hurt us in our losses. They noticed the players/coaches and spectators clapping for both teams at the start of each game and at the end of the game.

Congratulations to the Viking Volleyball team on a tremendous season and to the spectators, band, and cheerleaders for their continuous sportsmanlike support. Go Vikings!
