            GOOD SPORTS!

Swimmers from the Hershey and Governor Mifflin teams gathered on Saturday morning, March 18, in a great display of sportsmanship. Governor Mifflin, pictured on the right half of the photo, was mistakenly awarded the District III Class 3A Girls Swimming team championship on March 4 due to an unnoticed computer error. The Mifflin girls were announced as team champion and left Cumberland Valley HS with the team trophy; the error was discovered later. Hershey, its team members pictured on the left, had actually won the team title by 1.5 points. Governor Mifflin’s swimmers and coaches, in an great example of sportsmanship, arranged to transfer the team trophy to Hershey’s swimmers at the PIAA Swimming Championships at Bucknell University. District III salutes Governor Mifflin for its outstanding sportsmanship and graciousness.
