Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Basketball

Northland Lutheran @ Wisconsin Valley Lutheran
Dec. 6, 2022

We had the privilege of officiating a varsity boys basketball game at Wisconsin Valley Lutheran High School. When we arrived, we were greeted at the front door by Seth the athletic director, who most graciously took us to the officials locker room area. He had water already waiting for us in the locker room. Right from the captains’ meeting, the players were very nice and respectful. During the game, the coaches, players and fans all displayed great sportsmanship. The fans cheered for their teams, the coaches coached their players and were very professional to us as officials. The players played hard and when a player happened to fall to the floor, the players from each team went over to help them up. The players spoke very respectfully to the officials when they had a question about a call or a situation. Overall, it was a great experience of high school sportsmanship on all levels, from the coaches, to the players to the fans. I would hope that this message gets passed along to the schools coaches, players and fans on how appreciative we as officials were to the great sportsmanship showed during this game.
