Fall sports earn top sportsmanship honors

Andy McDermott/Staff Writer
The CFHS athletics recently received the Mississippi Valley Conference Fall Cliff Brees Sportsmanship Award from both their football and volleyball teams combined in the Valley Division.

This particular award consists of three different areas: the fans, the team and the coaches. From the volleyball perspective, Cedar Falls received a first in all three of the areas mentioned above.
For football, Cedar Falls did not receive a first place in all three areas but did get first for the coaches and the ways they work the players on and off the field.

The CFHS fall athletics has not received this award since 2003. Just focused on the Valley Division, this is only the second time Cedar Falls has received the fall award. If focused on both the Mississippi and Valley divisions combined, Cedar Falls has received five fall sportsmanship awards, one winter sportsmanship award and six in the spring.

With the volleyball team finishing strong at districts and the football team finishing 2nd in state with a 12-2 record, the teams, fans and coaches never gave up on supporting the Tigers.
Activity Director Gary Koenen said, “I am very proud of the fact that our teams do well on the field as well as having good sportsmanship. I believe that receiving this award is fantastic, and I am rather thrilled of how well it all turned out.”

According to Koenen, just knowing that our school has the most sportsmanship in the conference is an accomplishment itself, and Cedar Falls will continue to show how much sportsmanship it really has the rest of the year, from the winter to the spring sports.
