Subject: RE: Good Sportsmanship Example
Robin, I know that you and the league often only get the bad reports so I wanted to make a point to pass on a good one.
Our 5/6 team only had nine kids for our first TurLaxin game today against Lovejoy. When I told their coach that we were only able to play nine, he said that’s okay he’d only put nine out on the field too to make it even. He didn’t have to do that and he had plenty of extra players. I thanked him afterwards and made it a point to speak to his team to tell them what a good example their coach was for them. I hadn’t met the guy before but his name was Jairus.
Just wanted to pass this along as a positive example of good sportsmanship and Respect for the Game from the Lovejoy Leopards in DFW lacrosse and hope you can forward it to the League.
