Murrieta, CA — The Temecula Valley Auto Mall sponsored the first annual Southwestern League Sportsmanship Conference on Wednesday, October 26th.
Approximately 300 high school athletes from the Temecula Valley and Murrieta Valley Unified School Districts gathered to attend the Southwestern Sportsmanship Conference at Murrieta Mesa High School this week. Schools in attendance at the conference were Chaparral, Great Oak, Murrieta Mesa, Murrieta Valley, Temecula Valley, Paloma Valley and Vista Murrieta high schools. The event— which focused on sportsmanship, leadership and respect—included guest speakers, lunch and prizes for the student athletes.
Guest speakers included Rob Wigod, CIF-SS Commissioner; Reed Johnson, Pro Baseball; Tom Rudnai of the Temecula Valley Auto Mall, the event’s sponsor; and Nikki Palmer, UCR Softball Head Coach. In addition to topics related to character, the dangers of texting and driving were also discussed. Tom Rudnai asked the students to take an online pledge, vowing not to text and drive and providing reasons their goals were too valuable this year to be in a car accident. In return, each student had a chance to win one of three iPads provided by the Temecula Valley Auto Mall to assist them in their studies.
“It’s great when we can do something for the community that really has an impact” said Rudnai. “These kids are the future of not just Temecula, but our entire nation, so investing in them like this is so important.”
Students seemed noticeably inspired as the event came to a close, and were encouraged to take the lessons learned at the conference home with them, and to lead by example in their schools.
