Building a team - part 2

Last week I wrote about my daughter's experience in her previous school in being part of building a volleyball team.  Thanks to her amazing coach my daughter learned to love the sport and build a team spirit.  Yesterday the girls played in a tournament against schools from different countries:  Poland, Austria, Germany and other schools in Switzerland.  The girls came 5th out of 9 teams.  So why are my daughter and her co-captain holding a trophy you might well ask?  The reason is that there was an award for sportsmanship - the coaches and the girls in the other teams all had a vote as to which team would get this award and our girls got it!  For me this is actually better than getting first place in the tournament.  It's not all about winning or being the best, it's about being part of a great team.
