Sportsmanship Plus - Girls Basketball

D.C. Everest @ Marshfield
Dec. 16, 2022

We had the privilege of officiating a girls' varsity basketball game at Marshfield against DC Everest. Right from the start at the captains' meeting, both teams showed great gratitude towards each other. During the game the players played, the coaches coached and the fans cheered on their teams in very positive manner. When there were calls made, both players and coaches respectfully asked us and thank us for helping coach their players. The calls would prevent them from making the same mistakes in the future. One of the captains from D.C. Everest saw I was talking to one of her team members. At halftime, she came up to me and asked if there was anything she and her team needed to clean up. After halftime, the player in question came up and said sorry for her actions. Later in the game during a dead ball, I told that team captain from D.C. Everest that was great leadership and that it will get her far in life being that type of positive person. It was a great night and this is the reason why our crew loves officiating the game. Hopefully this will get passed along to other schools and will continue to see more of this positive behavior in the future.
