Each year since 1999 the Mississippi Athletic Conference (MAC) has selected area high schools in nine sports to receive sportsmanship awards, along with an overall sportsmanship award in both girls’ and boys’ sports. The competition is sponsored by area Rotary Clubs and the winners are awarded banners to display in their gyms.
In the 2013-2014 awards Davenport North High School girls’ sports took first place for best overall sportsmanship for the second year. First place awards in softball went to Davenport Central and Davenport North. Davenport West and Davenport Central both received a first place in volleyball.
After each contest during the season, game officials turn in scores for the conduct of athletes, coaches, and fans. Congratulations to North, Central, and West athletes, coaches, and fans for continuing to show the kind of good sportsmanship that makes our district proud!
