Youth soccer team wins sportsmanship award
November 15, 2023
They didn't win a single match this season, but Black Bird Landscaping U-11 girls' soccer players were champions, nonetheless.
And not just here in town, but across the entire county.
That's because the La Conner team was honored at the end of the regular season with the Skagit Valley Soccer Association's coveted Sportsmanship Award.
On that score, it wasn't even close.
During the season, referees assigned to youth soccer matches submitted scores for sportsmanship for each team on a 1-5 scale. Those scores were tabulated and averaged for all the association's U-11 through U-14 teams.
