The other day, we reported that the Ellsworth Boys Cross Country Team were going to be awarded the Class B North Cross Country Banner for Good Sportsmanship. On Thursday, the Maine Principal's Association called Josh Frost the Ellsworth High School Athletic Director and said a mistake had been made.

Rather than the Boys winning the award, it was the Girls who had won. Josh Frost met with both teams on Friday and explained the error. Showing their true sportsmanship the entire Boy's team went to Twin Brooks Saturday to root on the Girl's Team who was competing and Matthew Shea and Matthew Frost who were competing individually.

That is sportsmanship at its finest, banner or no banner.

Congratulations to both teams on a great season. The future looks bright for the Ellsworth Cross Country Teams.
