Recognition is due the Hillsboro fifth grade girls basketball team for their performance on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 26.
Due to a communication error, the opposing team arrived with less than the necessary team members required to compose a squad. Rather than cancel the game, Hillsboro rotated four of their team players, two by two, to play on the opposing team. All four Hillsboro girls demonstrated an example of good sportsmanship with good faith toward the opposing team members, who were equally gracious and grateful for this team spirit of cooperation and hospitality in an awkward situation.
The mature attitudes of good sportsmanship and good faith demonstrated by these young ladies was a model for all seasons, all sports and all ages.
