Latin Academy’s volleyball team will receive the 2012 MIAA Boys Volleyball Sportsmanship Award on Wednesday during a ceremony before the state championship match at Babson College.
“We were nominated the last couple years, it was good for the kids,” Latin Academy coach Phuong Cao said. “The referees over the years, they just watched the kids and they nominated us.”
The Dragons (16-5) lost in the quarterfinals of the Division 1 North state tournament bracket to Cambridge Rindge & Latin, which will play for the state championship against Milford at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Cao said it’s nice to know the team they bowed out to made it to the final.
“They are good, they are good all around,” he said. “We played them three times this year and they are excellent.”
