True Sportsmanship on Red Raider Teams

29 Oct

[Fairport Central School’s] goal is to develop a competitive athletic program that does not lose sight of the educational values of sportsmanship, team work, health and scholastic achievement. It is the nature of athletic competition to strive for victory, but the number of victories is only one criterion when determining the success of a season. Guiding the team and each individual to attain their maximum potential is the ultimate goal. (

This fall season, Fairport athletics has certainly seen many displays of sportsmanship & teamwork.  Check out this recent article from the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle:
