That's Sportsmanship, Gentlemen

"

Contrast this to the line delivered by my son's Mock Trial team coach before their first trial--"There are no good losers, only losers." Yes, you can bet that I made several irate phone calls about that. Competition is about teaching respect for the game, the team, your opponent, and yourself. The usual media and the talking heads that populate sports try to teach young people otherwise. I am glad these young women weren't listening.

Great story! Very emotional but also so inspiring.
