SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD - "A" LEAGUE

Perpetual Trophy Donated by
Doug Harrison, Bay Ridge Stables

Doug Harrison donated the sportsmanship trophy as a means to recognize those young riders who display outstanding sportsmanship during the season and to encourage good sportsmanship throughout the league. Doug has been affiliated with the NCEL as a parent and a coach for many years. He is proud of the success in the league of both his daughter Kathy, and stepdaughter Shallon. Doug strongly believes that good sportsmanship is an important life skill for everyone and that the principles of good sportsmanship apply to everyday life as well as in athletic competition. He feels that all riders who are recognized by their peers for good sportsmanship should be proud of that recognition. Doug congratulates all riders nominated for the Sportsmanship Award and is pleased to honor the rider nominated most often with the NCEL Sportsmanship trophy.

SPORTSMANSHIP AWARD B" LEAGUE
Perpetual Trophy Donated by
Jan Martin, Loftmar Stables

This trophy was donated by Jan Martin in memory of her mother Mary Loftus. Mary loved horses. She taught Jan that the first priority is the care and well being of the animal; that the respect, honesty and fairness you show to others will be returned to you; that each of us should admire and learn from others whose skills are greater than ours; and, most importantly, you should love and enjoy what you are doing. She exemplified good sportsmanship. Her love and support is very dearly missed.

COACH'S AWARDS -- "A" AND "B" LEAGUES
Perpetual Trophies Donated by
Sandra Sue Adams-Choate, Maintree

The riders of the NCEL teams
Recognize and honor --

The Coaches who are teachers,
Mentors and friends,
Who inspire, challenge and
Are infinitely fair.

Sharing one's knowledge gained over a lifetime of experience is one of the greatest gifts that can be given. Coaches are teachers, mentors and friends who give the gift of their knowledge and experience to their students. Coaches challenge their protégées to ride to the best of their ability. They set the standards for their students in all aspects of horsemanship. They foster team spirit, promote good sportsmanship and keen, but fair competition. Coaches are hard taskmasters but infinitely fair. These awards are given annually to the Coach in each League whom the NCEL Team members recognize for their dedication to the sport.
