Wildcats News · Arundel High School Announces 2019 Sportsmanship and Service Award Winners


Arundel High School is proud to announce that this year’s recipients of the Craig White Sportsmanship and Service awards are Boys and Girls Tennis and Boys and Girls Swimming 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!
