Random Acts of Sportsmanship Spotted at CYC Lacrosse Games

The CYC Lacrosse season opened last month with 12 games scheduled on Saturday March 21st.  In the game between Sacred Heart-Florissant and St. Michael, a Random Act of Sportsmanship (RAS) was spotted, not once, but twice. Two different times a Sacred Heart player fell to the ground.  Both times, Evelyn Trampe, a St. Michael player, stopped immediately to see if fallen player was alright, and helped her to her feet.  The Sacred Heart coach, Mike Seibman, called out, "that is great sportsmanship #33".  Way to go Evelyn!

We also want to recognize Mike Seibman and his Sacred Heart-Florissant team and Karen Anderson and her St. Gerard team for their RAS.  Due to a scheduling snafu, two teams were left without an opponent.  In those cases Mike and Karen had their teams stay so the teams that were excited to start the season had someone to play instead of having a forfeit.  Thanks Coaches!!

Often times acts of good sportsmanship go unnoticed, or if noticed, unmentioned.  Those should not be unmentionables!  They should be spotted and shouted about.  As a CYC we want to recognize these acts, praise the people involved, and encourage others to follow in their footsteps.  So when you see a Random Act of Sportsmanship make a mental note and then drop an email about it to so we can shout about it and bring it to everyone's attention.  As the CYC, we want to help everyone realize that good sportsmanship makes great sports!!
