Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Basketball

Marion @ Lakeland
Jan. 15, 2024

In a game well in hand, Hakken Berklund of Lakeland made an incredible play at the rim resulting in a dunk over a Marion player. In many games, this type of play leads to taunting and excessive celebration. The entire gym rose to their feet, bench erupted in celebration, and players on the court watched in awe at the display of athleticism. Hakken immediately avoided any further contact and made no effort to celebrate his tremendous play over another player. As an official, I wanted to recognize what I felt was an exceptional display of sportsmanship by Hakken.
