The girls’ basketball team at Lapeer West High School was selected by the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan as a recipient of the 2011-2012 Top 100 Girls’ Basketball Sportsmanship Award.
The team will be presented the award by the school’s Army National Guard recruiter next fall at the beginning of the 2012-2013 season.
After each regular season boys’ and girls’ game, basketball officials that worked the game are asked by the MHSAA to provide feedback on the sportsmanship of each school’s players, coaches, administrators and fans. This feedback is then ranked for all MHSAA schools. The top 100 boys and top 100 girls teams are then chosen to receive the award.
