Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Swimming & Diving

Janesville Craig @ Madison La Follette
Dec. 20, 2019

Hayden Mueller, the Madison LaFollette boys swimming & diving yeam captain, showed exemplary leadership. Before the meet started, he checked with me as an official to see if the equipment (timing system, touchpads) were set up to my satisfaction. Later, he proactively worked with a number of less-experienced teammates to make sure they understood warm up procedures and other meet logistics to improve their likelihood of success during the meet. At the end of the meet, he directed cleanup and reminded them of details for the next day's meet. His respect for this teammates and their respect for him was evident, and his genuine concern that all aspects of the meet went smoothly was remarkable. This level of involvement and leadership for a high school student captain was clearly out of the ordinary and I am happy to shine a light to commend his actions.
