Congratulations to CHS Boys Tennis Head Coach Todd Denton who received an IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report for his conduct in a match vs. Goshen on September 13. The report was filed by Daniel Love, Head Boys Tennis Coach at Goshen High School.
The varsity match came down to a 3rd set tiebreaker at 2 Singles, and Alex Serwatka of Concord came back from being down 4-1 in the set to win in the tiebreaker. Concord’s players stormed the court to celebrate, but Coach Todd Denton, noticing that JV matches were still in progress and out of respect for the Goshen 2 Singles player still out on the court, asked his players to temporarily tone down the on-court celebration until a more appropriate time. It was a thrilling end to a close match, and understandable that emotions would be high, but the restraint of Coach Denton and respect for the losing player & other matches on adjacent courts was much appreciated.
We are extremely proud of Coach Denton for modeling good sportsmanship for his athletes and the positive leadership he provides to the boys tennis program!
