MCPS presents Sportsmanship Awards in each sport to varsity teams whose spectators and team personnel best exhibit sportsmanship over the course of the season. The award is based on ratings conducted by officials, athletic directors, and school administrators. The school whose teams have won the greatest number of team sportsmanship awards during the course of the year will be recognized as the county “Sportsmanship Champion” for that year and will receive a monetary award.

- Bocce – Coach Katie Nichols
