Fort Ann Earns Prestigious Sportsmanship Award

By | Sports

FORT ANN —­ The International Association of Approved Basketball Officials (IAABO) Board 36, which includes over 100 officials who serve the NYS Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) Section II Boys Basketball League, chose Fort Ann Central School District to receive the 2016-17 Tom Brennan Sportsmanship Award. This marks the first time the award has been earned by a team in the Adirondack League.


The award is named after longtime Section II Official Tom Brennan, who was inducted into the Capital District Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010. Boys Basketball Officials from over 90 schools in Section II voted for Fort Ann to receive this award.


“We are pleased, humbled, and honored to receive this award,” said Coach Kevin Nassivera, who has been the Fort Ann varsity boy’s basketball coach for nine years. “Sportsmanship is a big part of what we do, and the athletes believe it plays a key role in our success.”


The Tom Brennan Sportsmanship banner will be presented to the Fort Ann coaches in November 2016, and hung in the Fort Ann gym for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year.
