RBR Wins Monmouth County Athletic Director’s Good Sportsman Award

The Momouth County Athletic Directors Voted RBR the Good Sportsmanship Award for the 2011-2012 school year.

“Sportsmanship means that regardless of the score, you give 100 percent of your effort,” states Red Bank Regional senior Kerry Lang, Little Silver, who, along with RBR senior Patrick Quinn, Shrewsbury, were awarded the Monmouth County Director of Athletics’ (MCDA) Sportsmanship award given to a female and male athlete at each high school. However, what makes Lang's statement so important is that its spirit was practiced and then recognized by all athletic directors in Monmouth County who this year voted RBR the coveted Good Sportsmanship Award. This is the first time RBR has been honored since 2002.

RBR Athletic Director Del Dal Pra states, “We are delighted to once again receive this award which reflects so positively on the character and comportment of our student athletes. High school sports are about much more than winning. The most valuable lessons learned include playing as a cohesive team and respecting your opponents, thus setting an example for everyone.”

Lang will be attending Trinity College in Connecticut next year where she will  play soccer. She also played girls basketball at RBR.

Quinn will attend SUNY Cortland in New York and hopes toplay lacrosse. He too was a two-sport student athlete and played football for RBR.
