Charlie Fox Wins P. Saylor Fence / MACS Good Sport of the Week Award
Charlotte Catholic High School senior baseball player Charlie Fox has been named
the P. Saylor Fence / Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools Good Sport of the Week.
Charlie recently completed his high school baseball career and will now head to
Sewanee: The University of the South, to play baseball and continue his education.
Charlie received the Boy Scouts of America National Court of Honor Medal of Merit.
This is awarded to “Scouts who have performed an act of meritorious service of a rare
or exceptional character that reflects an uncommon degree of concern for the well-being
of others.” Charlie helped rescue four swimmers caught in a riptide during his church
youth group (Saint Johns Episcopal Church – Charlotte) retreat at Garden City Beach
on Memorial Day weekend 2016. Using a rope and float, he joined three others in a
coordinated effort to rescue the stranded swimmers. All were brought to safety because
of Charlie and his fellow youth group’s actions. This award is given to fewer than 300
scouts in the USA each year.
Congratulations to Charlie Fox, the P. Saylor Fence / Mecklenburg Area Catholic
Schools Good Sport of the Week.
