Creating a Culture of Christ-likeness

When I arrived at our School our school had a perception for bad behavior even though our teams were highly competitive. At our first A.D. meeting for conference fall sports awards our school placed dead last in the sportsmanship voting. After meeting with some A.D.'s privately we set out to make some changes to  the culture of our athletic program.
