North Liberty Leader
IOWA CITY– Iowa City West High won its second consecutive Mississippi Valley Conference (MVC) Winter Sportsmanship Award. The traveling trophy was presented Wednesday evening, April 11, during the semi-annual administrators’ meeting at the Hotel at Kirkwood Center, in Cedar Rapids. West High won for the Mississippi Division, while Dubuque Hempstead earned the honor for the Valley Division, also for the second consecutive year.
West High won the award for the winter season three times: 2018, 2017 and 2012 (as part of the Valley Division). West won the award for the Spring Season in 2008, 2009 and 2010 (Mississippi) and won the Fall award in 2017 (Mississippi), 2005 (Valley) and 1994 (Valley).
“These winners reflect the results of sportsmanship ballots summarized by all varsity athletic officials for the sports basketball and wrestling during the recently completed winter athletic season,” MVC Commissioner Randy Krejci said.
The West High Women of Troy won the Class 5A State Basketball Championship, while the Trojans were the Class 4A runner-up team.
