Junior Kaitlyn Tang Honored with Ethics in Sports Award

January 18, 2021 by Elaine Rottman

Three-sport athlete Kaitlyn Tang, Class of 2022, was honored by the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table with the Phil Womble Ethics in Sports Award in a virtual award presentation ceremony on January 18, 2021.

A 4.9 GPA honors student, Kaitlyn plays indoor volleyball, basketball, and beach volleyball. While COVID-19 has put CIF athletics on hold thus far this year, Kaitlyn has participated in conditioning workouts and team meetings as if she were going to hit the court tomorrow.

The Phil Womble award is named after a man who lived life to its fullest, despite having cerebral palsy. A passionate local sports fan, Womble lived to the age of 80. His values are reflected in the award, which is presented to a junior student who lives up to the qualities of accountability, respect of teammates, opponents, and officials, honesty, positive attitude, reliability, loyalty, sportsmanship, others above self, and team above personal interest.

Kaitlyn has demonstrated her commitment to community service through organizing the Run for CommUNITY 5k run/walk, collecting food for donation to the Food Bank, volunteering at the Pilgrim Terrace Senior Community, and participating in the Providence Philia Day and the United Way’s Day of Caring.
