McKeel Academy and Tenoroc were two of 16 schools in Florida honored for good sportsmanship by the Florida High School Athletic Association, the governing body for high school sports.
The schools were awarded $500 and given the FHSAA/Fred E. Rozelle Sportsmanship Award in their respective classifications, Tenoroc in 5A and McKeel in 3A.
The award goes to schools with athletic teams that demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2011-12 regular season and FHSAA State Series.
"These schools and the outstanding student athletes who compete for them embody the finest ideals of sportsmanship and fair play," said FHSAA Executive Director Roger Dearing in a prepared statement.
Criteria for selection includes, among other things, the number and type of unsportsmanlike ejections and exceptional sportsmanship reports.
