The IHSA Board of Directors, Sportsmanship Advisory Committee and IHSA Staff recently congratulated Joliet West High School for earning a Do What’s Right! State Final Sportsmanship Banner at the 2017 Competitive Dance State Finals!
Joliet West High School has set a high standard for other schools to follow during post and regular season play. The State Final Sportsmanship Banner, provided by the IHSA, will be displayed in the gymnasium.
Joliet West High School Athletic Director Steve Millsaps said, “Congrats to the TIGER PAWS on winning the IHSA state competition sportsmanship award for 2017 in competitive dance. The sportsmanship committee selects 1 team per division based on the actions and behaviors of the school’s coaches, athletes, and spectators. This truly is a great honor for the program and the team.”
Head coach Alexandra Strahanoski adds, “Winning this award is a surprise and a great honor for our team, school, and community. I am so proud to coach such amazing dancers and I am very thankful for all the support we received from Wild West and our families on our road to state, we could not have received this award without them.”
Joliet West High School’s Tiger Paws Dance Team serve as a great example to Joliet West teams, fans, and community to Do What’s Right!
