The Virginia High School League (VHSL) has recognized 116 member schools for their outstanding sportsmanship during the 2022-23 Spring season, including James River High School. These schools had no player or coach ejections, nor were their programs placed on warning status.
Dr. John W. “Billy” Haun, Ed.D., Executive Director of VHSL, commended the players, coaches, administrators, and fans who contributed to this achievement.
“We are extremely proud of all the players, coaches, administrators, and fans who worked very hard to make this happen,” said Dr. Haun. “Each school and community should be proud to be on this honor roll. Sportsmanship reflects positively on the individuals, schools, and communities.”
Dr. Haun also encouraged all VHSL member schools to aim for the 2023-24 honor roll.
“VHSL activities are an extension of the classroom, and instilling sportsmanship is one of the most significant skills we can teach our student-athletes,” said Dr. Haun. “Let us celebrate this spring’s VHSL Sportsmanship Honor Roll and continue to promote sportsmanship in all VHSL activities.”
