Sobrilsky Receives National Citation for Service

STEVENS POINT, Wis. – Todd Sobrilsky, former athletic director at Waukesha South, was one of eight athletic administrators to be awarded a National Federation of State High School Associations Citation during the luncheon ceremony at the 54th annual National Athletic Directors Conference Monday, Dec. 18 in Orlando, Fla.

NFHS Citations are presented annually to outstanding athletic directors in recognition of contributions to interscholastic athletics at the local, state and national levels. State associations nominate athletic directors for NFHS Citations, and the NFHS Board of Directors approves recipients.

Sobrilsky, CMAA, served student-athletes in five different Wisconsin school districts before retiring as athletic director at Waukesha South High School in 2021. Following his retirement, Sobrilsky became commissioner of the Classic Eight Conference and is currently in his third year in that role.

In his final year at Waukesha South H.S., Sobrilsky received his second state Athletic Director of the Year honor from the Wisconsin Athletic Directors Association, an organization he led through the COVID-19 pandemic as president from 2020-2022. In addition to serving on the WADA Executive Board and several ad hoc committees, Sobrilsky has played an integral role in WADA’s strategic planning and Leadership Training Institute program, for which he is still the state certification coordinator.

Sobrilsky was active in governance with the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association. He was a member of the WIAA Sports Advisory Committee, including a term as chair from 2007 to 2009; and he spent time on the WIAA Advisory Council; Officials Advisory Committee; and as WADA liaison to the WIAA Board of Control. He has also served as the site manager for the WIAA Boys and Girls State Swimming and Diving Championships since 2019 and has hosted more than 50 sectional championships during his career.

A 14-time Wisconsin representative to the National Athletic Directors Conference Delegate Assembly, Sobrilsky was part of the National Presentation Faculty from 2007 to 2019, while also contributing to LTI course review and accreditation self-study and review subcommittees.

Sobrilsky has also served as president of the Classic Eight and the Greater Metro Conferences and has been a site coordinator for more than 30 events between the two leagues. In addition, he led a $3.5 million athletic facilities improvement plan as athletic director at Brookfield Central High School.
