Cleveland High School was recently recognized by the Alabama High School Athletic Association (AHSAA) as one of its Sportsmanship Schools for the 2018-2019 school year. A total of 99 AHSAA member schools have been recognized for being ejection free and receiving no more than one non-sportsmanship school fine for the just completed school year.
Representatives from Cleveland will be on hand for the AHSAA Sportsmanship Luncheon, which is being held later this week during the 2019 AHSAA Summer Conference and All-Star Sports Week. The 12th annual luncheon will be held at noon on Friday at the Montgomery Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center.
Overall, 376 of the AHSAA’s 416 high schools (90.4 percent) have combined to earn the Sportsmanship Award recognition 1,195 times since 2008.
“We are extremely pleased to recognize 99 high schools for this noted accomplishment,” said AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese. “Our total fines were down 4.1 percent in 2018-19 over the previous year, and we thank all our schools for their commitment to teaching good sportsmanship and upholding the regulations and bylaws created by our member schools.”
