May was recognized by the Wyoming High School Activities Association for his sportsmanlike behavior shown at the 2A West Regional cross country meet held earlier this year. Lovell athletes and coaches honored with good sportsmanship awards BY PATTI CARPENTER Colin May was present- ed with a Wyoming High School Activities Association (WHSAA) certificate of good sportsmanship for his sports- manlike behavior shown at the 2A West Regional cross country meet held on Oct. 13. The award was present- ed by Lovell High School Principal Scott O'Tremba at the District No. 2 school board meeting on Monday night. O'Tremba presented the award to May and read the comments of the officials who chose May for the award to the school board. WHSAA officials were impressed that May shook hands with the meet officials at the end of the competition and waited at the end of the race to con- gratulate each runner who crossed the finish line. "That was a pretty out- standing job," commented O'Tremba. "It was a great show of good sportsmanship on Colin's part. I've seen Colin compete through the years and this is really typi- cal of Colin, and it was great to see him recognized for this." Lovell High School's foot- ball coach Doug Hazen ac- cepted three certificates of good sportsmanship on be- half of the football team at the same meeting. The awards were for both the football team and the coaching staff for their good sportsmanship shown in the past month at the Big Piney, Thermopolis and Burns games. Officials were especial- ly impressed with how well both the coaches and play- ers handled a few "unfor- tunate calls against them" during the Burns game. Of- ficials noted that rather than complaining about the calls, the coaches went back to the team and coached them to a successful victory. School Supt. Dan Coe and O'Tremba presented the certificates to Hazen. Board members discussed the im- portance of good sportsman- ship in athletic activities. They also congratulated Ha- zen and his team for winning the state football champion- ship title and for their con- tinuous show of good sports- manship along the way to that victory. Earlier this school year senior Steven Pickett was named by WHSAA for his ex- emplary conduct during the football game against Pine- dale held on Sept. 9. "I think these awards show that our coaches are modeling good sportsman- ship from leadership to as- sistants to players," said O'Tremba. "What these play- ers do on the field is an exam- ple of what we would like to see all of our players do. It's easy to cheer for coaches and players who behave so well and demonstrate winning in a fashion that we are all proud of. They have proved that we can win and be good sports at the same time." Coe added, "I don't know that there is another team in the state that can say that during the course of that year, with 54 kids on the team, they got three good sportsmanship awards for the entire team and their coaches. That just typifies the good character and the good sportsmanship and role modeling from our coaching staff and students that is ex- emplary."
