A primary focus of the MCPS interscholastic athletics program is the promotion and reinforcement of good sportsmanship among coaches, players and fans.
MCPS presents Sportsmanship Awards in each sport to varsity teams whose spectators, coaches, and players best exhibit sportsmanship over the course of the season. The award is based on ratings conducted by officials, athletic directors, and school administrators. The school whose teams have won the greatest number of team sportsmanship awards during the course of the year will be recognized as the county “Sportsmanship Champion” for that year and will receive a monetary award.Paint Branch HS recipients of the Winter 16-17 MCPS Sportsmanship Award are:
Boys’ Basketball – Coach Chris Bohlen
