Good sportsmanship results in a big splash

Larkspur Elementary Bobcats

CASTLE ROCK – Team members from the fourth and fifth grade Larkspur Elementary Girls basketball team were recognized with a Sportsmanship Award, presented by the Castle Rock Recreation Center. Parents recently received an email informing them that the level of conduct of the players, coaches and parents earned them the highest average score in their grade/gender division. Their efforts will be rewarded with a pool party at the rec center.

Good sportsmanship was demonstrated by Coach Forbes, fourth-grade students Mari B., Rielley M. and Addy S., and fifth-grade students Alana M., Jenna B., Corrie F., Daphne A., Cari C., Taylor V., Isabelle G., Abby N. and Sarah P.
