Chesterton Academy @ Veritas/Tenor
Sept. 28, 2023
In the first set, Veritas/Tenor was down by a significant margin. Chesterton's server serves the ball at the baseline where it falls untouched. The student line judge is a bit confused and eventually calls out. Immediately, both Veritas/Tenor Head Coach Carly Anderson and her assistant say that the ball is clearly in. As R1 is awarding the point to her team, Coach Anderson approaches me as R2 to state that the ball was clearly in. I get my R1's attention and she repeats the statement. The R1 accepts Coach Anderson's honor call and changes the call and awards the point to Chesterton. After this happens I overhear the Chesterton bench express their stunned admiration that the opponent would give up a "break". I believe that this act of sportsmanship and fair play should be admired and commended.
