St. Francis High School was awarded the Illinois High School Association (IHSA) Sportsmanship Banner Award today for positive sportsmanship shown by the team, the community at large, and the student body during the Girls Volleyball 2022 State Tournament.
IHSA Assistant Executive Director Stacey Lambert and IHSA mascot "Add A. Tude" attended the February 2, 2023, All-School Liturgy to present the school with the banner.
“As you know, your team was fantastic, and you all did a great job in the state finals,” Lambert said. “We are thrilled to present you with the sportsmanship banner today.”
An IHSA-formed committee grades all participating schools and selects the winner based on their coaches, players, and fans.
Thank you to the SFHS fans, Blue Crew, and community for making this award possible, and congratulations to all!
