Arundel High School is proud to announce that this year’s recipients of the Craig White Sportsmanship and Service awards are Volleyball and Field Hockey respectively. Below is a brief description of the many actions that these teams performed in earning this recognition. These awards are given annually in honor of Old Mill High School’s late Athletic Director Craig White. The teams are selected based on their actions throughout the school year. As always this was a very difficult decision as we have many deserving teams. Congratulations to the members of both teams as we are very proud of your efforts!
SPORTSMANSHIP WINNING TEAM: Volleyball
COACHES NAME: Ashley Yuscavage
REASON TEAM WAS SELECTED: The Arundel volleyball team played with an infectious enthusiasm that spread throughout not only their own program, but also the entire Arundel community. Players, coaches, and fans truly enjoyed each and every moment of their season. They showed tremendous respect to all opponents while also performing at an extremely high level. They were supportive off all other programs in our school by attending many other teams’ contests and leading the cheering section. They are the sportsmanship model in which all Arundel teams should strive to become going forward! Congratulations to Coach Yuscavage and the entire Arundel volleyball community for this much deserved recognition.
SERVICE AWARD WINNING TEAM: Field Hockey
COACHES NAME: Carrie Vosburg
REASON TEAM WAS SELECTED: For the 2nd year in a row the Arundel Field Hockey team has earned service award for the Arundel Athletic program. They again organized and executed a variety of service projects that benefited our community in a variety of ways. Players visited the local Ronald McDonald house to spend time with families that simply needed a break for the very stressful lives that they were leading. They honored our local law enforcement agencies by hosting a “first responder” night in which they celebrated and recognized the service and commitment that our local law enforcement provides the community every day. Finally, they immediately stepped up when an alumnus was tragically injured in the Las Vegas shootings by raising funds and honoring her at one of their games. The coaches and players in our field hockey program continue to seek ways to better serve our community and they set the example at Arundel High School in terms of service. Congratulations to Coach Vosburg and the entire Arundel field hockey community for this much deserved recognition.
