CONGRATULATIONS TO PALOS VERDES PENINSULA HIGH SCHOOL FOR RECEIVING THE 2011-2012 CIF SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW
2011-2012 CIF SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD
In 2008, Peninsula High School received our league's CIF Sportsmanship Award. I have often shared that while I am proud of our numerous athletic accomplishments and awards, it is the Sportsmanship Award that speaks to the quality and character of our athletes. I am thrilled to announce that Peninsula High is the recipient of our league's 2010-2011 CIF Southern Section Sportsmanship Award. Peninsula High School's athletes, coaches, parents, student body and staff have earned this honor. On May 2, 2011, just prior to the Los Angeles Dodger - Chicago Clubs game, there will be a 15 minute ceremony held at Dodger Stadium that will be covered live on Dodger's Diamond Vision. Michele Charles will represent Peninsula High School during the ceremony and accept the plaque on behalf of the entire Peninsula High School Community.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SPORTS
Sports will always play an integral part in many peoples’ lives. Whether you are an athlete, a manager, a statistician, or a coach, the intangibles that you are exposed to are permanent. Through athletics, you learn perseverance, dominance, determination, commitment, sacrifice, honesty, and integrity, no matter what one’s role is on a team or individual sport. You find out that you can accomplish things you never thought were physically or mentally possible.
The influences of the coaches and teachers I had as a young athlete have shaped my adult life. I became a teacher and a coach because of my “love for the game.” Many of you will continue your athletic careers as players, as teachers, and as coaches. A lot of you will go into your professional careers taking with you what you learned as an athlete. You will all be successful because of your athletic experiences, good or bad.
Adversity should, but doesn't always, bring out the best in all of us. In sports, as in life, things don’t always go our way. We know that all of our athletic experiences will not be positive, but how we learn and deal with certain situations, will determine how much we grow. I believe that sports reveal our character and then we build on it. Good luck to all and keep up the great attitude!
