Sportsmanship Plus - Track & Field

Packy Paquette Invitational - Superior
April 5, 2019

I observed an exceptional act of sportsmanship by Jonathan Santana of Shell Lake. He was in his final lap of the 400-meter race, and with 50 meters remaining, his teammate fell down in front of him 20 meters from the finish line. Jonathan stopped to lend a helping hand to his teammate who severely sprained his ankle and had to be helped off the track. I complimented him, and he responded "My teammates health is more important tha me finishing the race." What a great act of sportsmanship.
