Goessel, Hillsboro schools honored for sportsmanship

Goessel and Hillsboro high schools earned sportsmanship awards for their representation at their respective 2009 KSHSAA state basketball tournaments.

All 96 girls’ and boys’ basketball teams at the 1-6A state basketball tournaments were eligible to receive a plaque, medal, or certificate based on their sportsmanship while participating.

Schools that made it past the first round were eligible for plaques or medals, while those losing after the first day could earn a certificate.

After Goessel’s fourth-place finish at the 1A boys’ tournament, principal Marc Grout and the school were awarded a plaque and medals for their overall sportsmanship.

HHS principal Max Heinrichs received a certificate for his school after the Lady Trojans were bounced in the first round of the 3A state tournament.

A specially-formed KSHSAA committee evaluated and rated cheerleaders, school cheering sections, adult and non-high school followers, the teams, and coaches of each school.

Goessel and Hillsboro both exhibited sportsmanship and character, which lead to the awards.
