LEAGUE DIRECTOR GETS JEFFERSON AWARD
League Director Matt Fritzinger has received the Jefferson award for his work building the NorCal High School Mountain Bike League. The Jefferson Award was started in 1972, by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, U.S. Senator Robert Taft, Jr. and Sam Beard to establish a Nobel Prize for public and community service. On the local level, Jefferson Awards recipients are ordinary people who do extraordinary things without expectation of recognition or reward.

Matt thanks all the many supporters that have made the first five years of League programs possible. See the full list of sponsors and donors at:
