Wantagh High School’s boys volleyball players set the bar high for good sportsmanship, and that did not go unnoticed this past season. The team received the Sportsmanship Award from the Nassau County Volleyball Officials Association and were presented with their trophy at an end-of-season dinner.
The team is coached by Lisa Fugazzi, who said she is extremely proud of the 14 boys for how they conduct themselves as players. She noted that their collective commitment to academics, athletics and good character is what the Warriors are all about.
“It’s an honor that Wantagh was recognized this year and it validates all of their hard work,” she said. “Winning or losing, it all comes down to character. The students on the boys volleyball team recognize that conduct and sportsmanship are important traits for athletes to have. This group of young me exemplified that.”
