TribLIVE Sports Videos
Quaker Valley High School was recently named a 2012-13 PIAA Sportsmanship Award winner. This marks the second time in school history that Quaker Valley earned this honor — the last was in 1996-97.
The Sportsmanship Award recognizes high schools throughout the commonwealth of Pennsylvania that best exemplify the principles of good sportsmanship.
“There's a lot of pride in winning the Sportsmanship Award,” athletic director Mike Mastroianni said. “Our sports teams have experienced unprecedented success during the last few years — this award signifies that our students have competed with honor and integrity.”
A banner will be presented to Quaker Valley during the 2013 WPIAL Sportsmanship Summit on Nov. 13, at the Heinz History Center.
“The Sportsmanship Committee extends a sincere appreciation to all schools for their efforts and commitment in promoting and practicing good sportsmanship,” Jim Collins, WPIAL assistant to the executive director, wrote to the winners.
Other area schools receiving this award include Avonworth High School, South Fayette High School and South Park High School.
