Huntington Teams Win
Four Huntington School District fall season athletic teams have earned Section XI sportsmanship awards. Coaches file sportsmanship ratings of opposing teams following each athletic contest. The results are tabulated and announced after the season.
The honored Huntington teams include varsity girls' soccer (coached by John Walsh), varsity girls' volleyball (Caroline Reilly), J. Taylor Finley Middle School girls' soccer (Linda Costello-Roth) and Finley boys' soccer (Matt Perlongo).
Georgia D. McCarthy, Huntington's district director of health, physical education and interscholastic athletics made a point of saluting the team's coaches "whose leadership has been essential in the achievement of these honors."
Superintendent James W. Polansky announced the Sportsmanship Award winning teams during the last meeting of the Huntington School Board.
