For years we have had 'Citizenship Points' for athletes going above and beyond what would be expected of them and helping their coaches, teammates, or other people. They have generally been hidden but played into Steamboat Points.
We have decided to change the name to the Ripple Effect Award and make them not only public but make it possible for anyone to nominate someone for the award. The idea of this award is that athletes actions have a positive effect on their coaches, teammates, perception of the team by the public or UW, or some other way that will ripple out into the team and community.
This week is the first award and I am excited to give an incredible list of athletes who not only completed a very grueling Medal Test at 7:30am on Saturday morning and not only attended the Medicine Bow Trail Day BUT worked extremely hard, without prodding, for the entire 2.5 hours. The work accomplished was substantial and the teamwork demonstrated was phenomenal.
Congratulations to the following people for being part of the inaugural Ripple Effect Award!
