USS SHENANDOAH| Athletics Dept.
“Sports are an important element of Shenandoah life. Not only do they provide physical recreation for individual crew members, but they promote a feeling of belonging, an appreciation of the importance of teamwork, a source of pride for Shenandoah’s entire crew, and a feeling of self-worth which is inherent in athletic competition and team play.”
