BLHS earns KSHSAA sportsmanship award

March 31, 2011

The Kansas State High School Activities Association has announced its State Basketball Tournament Sportsmanship Awards, and Basehor-Linwood High School was recognized for its good behavior during the Class 4A state tournament.

The Bobcats — who completed a 20-5 season with a third-place finish at state — received sportsmanship plaques and medals, the highest sportsmanship honor bestowed by KSHSAA at the state tournament.

Also garnering plaques and medals were Cheney, Holton and Ottawa.

According to a KSHSAA press release, “Schools whose teams did not advance to the semifinal round were eligible to receive a certificate if they met the qualifying standards of sportsmanship. Schools participating all three days of the tournament were eligible to receive a plaque for their school and medals for cheerleaders.”

KSHSAA uses a special sportsmanship committee to evaluate and rate cheerleaders, school cheering sections, adult and non-high school followers, teams and the schools’ coaches in determining the awards.
