Menlo-Atherton Little Leaguers honored for good sportsmanship

Submitted by Carla Posthauer of the Menlo-Atherton Little League.

Each year Menlo-Atherton Little League honors one player per team for good sportsmanship. The league's goal, with the support of the Positive Coaching Alliance, is to recognize players who consistently exhibit a positive attitude, support for teammates and a sense of fair play, and handle tough situations with good sportsmanship.

In addition to the players, coaches are honored for being "dual goal" coaches. The Positive Coaching Alliance has defined the "dual goal coach" as one who balances the goal to win with respect for all players, coaches, and umpires.

On Saturday, June 11, the 2011 winners of the Menlo-Atherton Little League's Sportsmanship Awards were announced. The winners are:
