Amanda Peterson - What Ever Happened To Amanda Peterson?

Good sportsmanship is a lot like the weather -- everybody talks about it, but nobody does much about it.

Not so with Glenbard East High School girls volleyball coach Marci Maier and her junior co-captain Amanda Peterson.

"It's not something that happens everyday and it is nice to see sportsmanship recognized, at least recognized in a positive manner," Maier said. "A lot of times when you read things in the newspaper it's not always a positive side."

The IHSA took steps to remedy that by implementing their Do What's Right! Sportsmanship Program for the 2007-2008 school year. The program is designed to recognize sports programs for entire schools, but individuals can be honored as well.
