 Congratulations to DHS student- athlete Seamus Millett!.  Seamus is the recipient of the 2015 Fair Play Award from the UIPM (Union International de Pentathlon Moderne) for showing great character during the Youth World Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  In the fencing bonus round a judge awarded Seamus a victory over another opponent . Seamus did not accept the victory, saying he hit the floor. The fencing match continued with Seamus losing. This cost him elimination in the bonus round.  Seamus' stellar example of sportsmanship in the World Champions was a true act of fair play.  Click here to read the full story.
