Lomira @ Omro
Dec. 12, 2019
From the moment I had contact with athletes and coaches from both teams, I was shown nothing but respect. Both teams were quiet and attentive during weigh-ins and my pre-meet talks.It was evident that respect and good sportsmanship start from the top on both teams. Both coaches referred to me as sir throughout the night and answer questions with “yes/no sir.” Nearly all the athletes from both teams continued this practice consistently as well. Omro recognized their youth wrestlers that night. During the pre-match face-off, Omro wrestlers came out onto the mat with a youth wrestler to meet in the center of the mat. After shaking hands with the opponents, the Lomira wrestlers also shook hands with the youth wrestler which made their night. Everyone wrestled hard. Irrespective if they won or lost, everyone showed good sportsmanship throughout the dual. It was an honor and a joy to officiate this dual and it was made that way by the sportsmanship of both teams.
