Northwest Catholic’s field hockey team has been honored with the 2013 Lucy Goodridge Sportsmanship Award by the Connecticut Field Hockey Association Official’s Board. The team was honored at the CIAC Fall 2013 All-State banquet on December 3.
To be considered for this award, a team must exemplify good sportsmanship during the fall season. They are evaluated based on how well they demonstrate the values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility; the attitude and behavior of the players, coaches and spectators; how visiting teams are treated at the home team’s site; and the players’ respectful interaction with game officials. Team members must also be positive role models for the sport, their school and the community.
“Coach Mullady and his team are most deserving of this award,” said Athletic Director Matthew Martorelli ’03. “They have worked extremely hard at improving every aspect of their game, setting goals and achieving them together, and redefining what sportsmanship means to them. I am very happy for them!”
