The Jersey Blues have done it again! Announced at the Region XIX annual fall meeting on October 13th, 2020, the Blues were bestowed with the Champions of Character Award, sharing with Northampton Community College.
Over the past year, the student-athletes have volunteered their time doing good deeds such as beach sweeps, running for a charity in Santa suits, hosting and entertaining a local Cub Scouts pack at a basketball game, and running a baseball clinic for a Little League in the area. The Jersey Blues previously earned the award in the years, 2010-2011, 2012-2013, and 2018-2019.
The Champions of Character Award is given annually to a Region XIX institution that clearly demonstrates outstanding results in the character development of its student-athletes and coaches by embracing the true spirit of competition through the five core values of respect, responsibility, integrity, servant leadership and sportsmanship. The institution also demonstrates outstanding involvement in the community, which results in positive character development through the sport.
