Bolingbrook High School girls softball squad honored for sportsmanship

BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook High School’s girls softball team is a South Suburbs Officials Association (SSOA) Sportsmanship Award winner for the 2013 season.

The Girls Softball Sportsmanship Awards focus on schools in the south and southwest Chicago area. Winners are recognized for providing a positive sporting experience for all, including officials who umpired the games. Officials from the SSOA select winners by using a comprehensive rating system that evaluates sportsmanship displayed by players, coaches and fans.

Jean Ryan-Moak is head coach of the BHS varsity girls softball squad.

This marks the second time this year a BHS team has been recognized for outstanding sportsmanship. Southwest Suburban Conference coaches voted to present the Sportsmanship Award to the Raiders boys soccer team last fall.
