As a part of the IHSA Do What’s Right! Sportsmanship Program, member school personnel and licensed IHSA officials have the ability to recognize acts of exemplary sportsmanship and integrity that occur in IHSA events throughout the school year via the Sport A Winning Attitude Report (SAWA). Those who are recognized receive a special certificate from the IHSA and select SAWAs are featured here on the IHSAState website
The SAWA Report below on the Danville High School softball team was submitted by an IHSA softball official:
Danville was leading 2 to 1 in the bottom of the 7th inning. Rantoul scored two runs in the bottom of the inning to win the game. A Rantoul runner was injured on the last play of the game. After the two teams exchanged handshakes, the entire Danville team went out to second base to shake hands with the injured Rantoul runner. A class move.
