Sportsmanship Plus

Rice Lake @ Baldwin-Woodville
Oct. 25, 2018

Rice Lake showed excellent sportsmanship in the face of a competitive game. Each time Rice Lake approached the officiating crew to ask a question, they did so politely and in a way that was trying to understand how or why a decision was being made (or not being made). I believe their tone and professionalism is a result of strong team culture created by their head coach. In the past several years, the boys head coach for Rice Lake has been polite and shown strong understanding of what youth athletics are about. He has been an excellent role model to his players and has never taken an inappropriate tone with an officiating crew I have been on. This sportsmanship "Plus" is many years coming. He has been great to work with in the past, and his influence on the players shows during games. It's high time some unsolicited feedback comes in for coaches doing a great job in youth sports.
