Holliston Sports Receive Award

June 18, 2016

The Tri-Valley League sportsmanship award as been awarded to Holliston High School in 2016. This honor was awarded to the HHS in 2002-2003 as shown on banner above. An updated banner will soon be displayed in Rowles Gymasium.

Holliston High School has been awarded the coveted Tri-Valley Hap Mazukina award for sportsmanship.

The banner pictured above was awarded to Holliston High in 2002-2003 and is on display in the gymnasium. A new banner will soon be available for 2015-2016.

At the conclusion of each sports season, the Tri-Valley League coaches assemble by sport to vote on All stars, the league's Most Valuable Player, Coach of the year and the Sportsmanship award. When the coaches of a specific sport vote for the Sportsmanship award,they vote for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place team. At the end of the academic year, each school gets value points for the number of times they showed up on these sportsmanship rankings. Holliston had the most points by far, a very impressive accomplishment for our coaches and student athletes across the board.

The Hap Mazukina Award, the Sportsmanship Award is named after a former Tri-Valley League commissioner.

Athletic Director Matthew Baker stated that win or lose, we always tell our student athletes to be great competitors on the field of play and do it with class, play hard and have utmost respect for their opponents and game officials. The coaching staff does a great job instilling these values in the student athletes and it is rewarding that others have noted this as well.  He is really happy and proud of everyone contributing to this honor.

Congratulations and way to go HHS!
