Summit’s Shaffer selected for Dick Snyder Award by MVC

Summit soccer player

Summit junior Kathryn Shaffer, Anderson, was selected for The Dick Snyder Sportsmanship Award for the Fall 2020 sports season by the Miami Valley Conference.  

Kathryn helps anchor the stout defensive unit on the girls’ soccer team. Entering the postseason, the Silver Knights have shut-out seven opponents. She is a three-year varsity letter winner. 
 
"Kathryn models the type of behavior we ask our players to uphold - play with passion, appreciate the game, be a great teammate and represent our school community well,” Head Coach Mike Fee said. “She takes each of these to heart. Kathryn never forgets to express gratitude, is constantly accountable for her behavior and truly cares how she and the team are perceived by others in the greater community. I am proud to be her coach." 

The Dick Snyder Sportsmanship Award is given to an athlete from each of the MVC schools who displays integrity and good sportsmanship during the season. Each winner is nominated by one or more of the MVC Athletic Directors. The award is named in honor of the retired Athletic Director from Seven Hills Schools, who has served his school and our league for 40 years. 

Jimmy Stines ’20 was the last Summit representative to win the award. He won it for the 2019 winter sports season.
