Sportsmanship Award: I would like to start with a quote. Sportsmanship is an aspiration that a sport or activity will be enjoyed for its own sake, with proper consideration for conduct, fairness, ethics, respect for one’s opponent, a sense of fellowship with one’s competitors, and graciousness in winning or losing.
