At Monsignor Donovan High School in Toms River NJ they make an effort to promote virtue school-wide on a weekly basis.
Each coach submits their nominees from their team as Virtue Athlete of the week according to the virtue-theme.
During Committed week, Dan Duddy- the director of the SportsLeader Virtue Program at the School, received the following:
The entire JV Tennis team demonstrated the epitome of what it means to be committed during their match on Tuesday.
We played a team and to make a long story short, all the girls demonstrated their commitment to their team and themselves by overcoming a rude and unprofessional coach, dishonest players and disrespectful, opposing team parents.
We lost in a tie break 5-7, but my girls walked off the court feeling accomplished and proud that they committed to getting through the match despite all the distractions.
I would like to name the entire JV Tennis team as committed for the week. Let me know if that is okay. Thanks for all your efforts, Dan. It is a fantastic program.
