Menasha @ Xavier
May 2, 2019
For both programs, respect was noticeably one of the central values being taught in the classroom, at practice, and on game day. Menasha players Tristin DeBriyn and Jordan Nichols were true leaders on the field. Xavier’s Phil Lorge showed numerous positive acts of sportsmanship throughout the contest. I also wanted to emphasize the hustle aspect of both Kaiser VandeLoo of Menasha and Phil Lorge of Xavier. These two catchers really worked hard in their catching roles. I witnessed them picking up numerous bats, offering a kind word to an opponent for a good play, and moving bats for opponents during play to make sure the area around the plate was safe. Both the Menasha and Xavier school and community leadership should be proud of these young men, their coaches, and their parents for their excellent display of positive sportsmanship at an education based athletic event. Best of luck to both teams this season and keep up the great work!
