Indians News · Face of Sportsmanship: Legacy Lopez


The Portage High School Athletic Department is pleased to present Legacy Lopez with the 2018-2019 IHSAA Face of Sportsmanship Award. This senior track athlete was nominated by PHS Athletic Trainer Annie Gonzalez, who wrote the following: “Despite suffering an injury that ended her indoor track season her senior year, Legacy has continued to be a source of inspiration and leadership for her teammates. Legacy has become a very positive presence in the athletic training room during her rehab. She asks to be challenged in her rehabilitation. She is thankful everyday. She encourages her other injured teammates to challenge themselves as well. She encourages and uplifts all the injured athletes to work hard and listen to our guidance. I would take a room full of athletes with her attitude daily!!” Some of the most essential ingredients for success are a great attitude and a willingness to remain steadfast through adversity. Legacy has exhibited both of those attributes and been a great example for her teammates. We are proud to honor Legacy Lopez with the Face of Sportsmanship Award for the 2018-2019 school year.
