Missouri Good Sports
Posted on 05/30/2018

A female and male student athlete from both Poplar Bluff Junior and Senior High has been named Missouri Good Sports for their behavior, positive role modeling, and outstanding display of sportsmanship through participation in interscholastic activities. 

Nominated by the coaching staff on Wednesday, May 23, award recipients included: PBJHS basketball player and track runner Emilee Cheek and football player, wrestler and track runner Gatlin Taylor; and from PBHS, cross country and track runner as well as swimmer Paige Bradley and basketball player/track runner Dominique Hardimon. 

“We at MSHSAA firmly believe that a positive role model such as yourself can positively influence the actions of others in your school—your teammates, younger students, your opponents and even spectators,” stated Jason West, Missouri State High School Activities Association communications director. “Since a few things bring schools and communities together like high school activities, the actions you display in competitions go a long way to influence others’ perceptions.”
