“You should be proud of your athletic accomplishments this past year and our presentation to you recognizes your efforts to promote the values of ethics and sportsmanship in your school,” NHIAA Executive Director Jeffrey T. Collins said in a letter to Principal Langille.
Athletic Director Scott Fitzgerald said KRHS has received a sportsmanship award eight of the last nine years. Principal Langille said he especially proud of student athletes’ achievement in light of the many challenges they faced.
“I am so proud of our athletes for earning this distinction; especially in a year when the world was struggling to figure out so many things, our students persevered,” Principal Langille said. “Seasons were cut short or canceled a year prior and this year our athletes played their hearts out for each other, as a team, and regardless of what extra was asked of them.”
The award will be presented at the NHIAA’s annual meeting in September. Only 49 other schools in the state had no students or coaches disqualified during the school year.
