Panthers News · Pioneer Jr-Sr High School Earns 2018-19 IHSAA Sportsmanship Award


Pioneer Jr-Sr High School earns 2018-19 Sportsmanship Award from the IHSAA.

Congratulations to the administrators, teachers, support staff, coaches, student-athletes, parents, fans, community members and stakeholders of Pioneer Jr-Sr High School who champion sportsmanship and understand the value and purpose of education-based athletics!

Of the 410 eligible high schools in the state of Indiana, just 17 qualified for the extremely prestigious award for the 2018-19 school year; in fact, Pioneer Jr-Sr High School is just 1 of 10 IHSAA schools to receive this outstanding honor in consecutive school years (2017-18 & 2018-19).

This award is presented annually to Indiana high schools that met or exceeded certain sportsmanship criteria supplied by the IHSAA during the given school year and is given to schools who foster good sportsmanship, citizenship and character within its student-athletes.

A commemorative banner will be delivered to Pioneer Jr-Sr High School this fall and will be displayed in the Main Gym of PJSHS.  This banner will serve as a reminder to every team, coach, student-athlete and fan that enters our facility of the importance of practicing good sportsmanship and fair play.
