Crusader Character of the Month

 

Every month, the St. Mary Athletic Council would like to recognize student-athletes who have demonstrated a Crusader character trait of the month in during extra-curricular sports activities.

 

Coaches will be contacted via email as a request for nominations. Once a list of nominees has been generated, Mr. Reil and Mr. Bell will take the information presented to determine each month’s recipients. There will be a Male and Female selected each month.
