West High earns sportsmanship award

First since 2005 for Trojan Nation’s fall sports

IOWA CITY– The Mississippi Valley athletic Conference (MVC) announced the winners of the Cliff Brees Fall Sportsmanship Award Thursday, Nov. 16, with Dubuque Senior being named in the Valley Division, and Iowa City West earning the honor in the Mississippi Division.
“These winners reflect results of sportsmanship ballots summarized by all varsity athletic officials for the sports of football and volleyball during the recently completed fall sports,” the MVC’s press release said. Trophies were presented at the semi-annual administrator meeting for the league Wednesday, Nov. 15, in Cedar Rapids.
West High has earned the distinction four times for fall sports: 1994 (Valley Div.), 1996 (tie with Dubuque Hempstead, Mississippi Div.), 2005 (Valley Div.) and now 2017 (Mississippi Div.). West won the award for winter sports in 2011-12 (Valley Div.) and 2016-17 (Mississippi Div.), and won the spring/summer award in 2008, ’09 and ’10 (Mississippi Div.).
The award is named for the late Cliff Brees, the first commissioner of the MVC.
