“Coaches preach and teach team, and so to go along with that, I thought it was appropriate to honor a team rather than individuals."

The McPherson Sentinel is excited to recognize and honor excellence in high school sports throughout the community with the addition of the Great Plains Federal Credit Union Team of the Week.

Every Monday, one team from McPherson County will be recognized for its excellence with the presentation of a certificate, sponsored by Great Plains Federal Credit Union. McPherson Sports Editor Matt Cole will travel throughout the county on Mondays to present the team with its award at practice.

“I am excited to have Great Plains Federal Credit Union join us in recognizing a Mac County high school team of the week,” Cole said. “Coaches preach and teach team, and so to go along with that, I thought it was appropriate to honor a team rather than individuals. I’m very proud that once again the Sentinel is leading the way in recognizing our McPherson County athletes and teams.”

Along with the McPherson Sentinel, Great Plains Federal Credit Union is pleased to give back to the local youth.

“Great Plains Federal Credit Union, McPherson, is pleased to partner with the McPherson Sentinel on the McPherson County Team of the Week Award,” Branch Manager David Myers said. “We wish all of the McPherson County sports teams and the student-athletes good luck in the upcoming season.”

The Team of the Week award begins this Monday.
