La Crosse Logan @ La Crosse Central (Varsity Reserve)
Oct. 3, 2019
It's always a pleasure officiating a contest when coaches take care of coaching, players take care of playing, and officials are allowed to do their jobs. This was definitely the case in the varsity reserve volleyball match. Every point of the match was hotly contested. The players left everything they had on the floor. The coaches concentrated their efforts coaching their players. This behavior speaks volumes about the the fabric of both schools from the administrators to the coaches. It's obvious everyone puts competition in perspective. Both schools deserve our congratulations for their sportsmanship. The "PLUS" part of this contest is the care I received after losing consciousness and falling from the referee's platform in the middle of the third set. Principal Troy Mc Donald and Activities Director Joe Beran should be congratulated for having a crisis response plan in place and carrying it out to perfection. I'm not sure who all to thank, but I definitely saw the concern and compassion on both Troy's and Joe's face.
