Sportsmanship Plus - Wrestling

Lomira @ Omro
Dec. 12, 2019

From the moment I had contact with athletes and coaches from both teams, I was shown nothing but respect. Both teams were quiet and attentive during weigh-ins and my pre-meet talks.It was evident that respect and good sportsmanship start from the top on both teams. Both coaches referred to me as sir throughout the night and answer questions with “yes/no sir.” Nearly all the athletes from both teams continued this practice consistently as well. Omro recognized their youth wrestlers that night. During the pre-match face-off, Omro wrestlers came out onto the mat with a youth wrestler to meet in the center of the mat. After shaking hands with the opponents, the Lomira wrestlers also shook hands with the youth wrestler which made their night. Everyone wrestled hard. Irrespective if they won or lost, everyone showed good sportsmanship throughout the dual. It was an honor and a joy to officiate this dual and it was made that way by the sportsmanship of both teams.

Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau @ Luther
Dec. 6, 2019

From the pregame meeting with the players, to meeting the coaches at the end of the warm up period and throughout the entire contest, both teams (players and coaches) exhibited a high degree of good sportsmanship. Ryan Svendsen, the Luther head coach, didn't question anything during the contest. Louis Hurd, the Galesville-Ettrick-Trempealeau head coach, was very respectful when he questioned something (which occurred only twice). When an issue arose with the G-E-T assistant coach, Coach Hurd acted quickly, professionally and respectfully to resolve the problem. Overall, my crew was very pleased and impressed. The fans demonstrated good sportsmanship as well. It was a positive environment and a fun contest to officiate. It was easily one of the most enjoyable contests I've ever officiated and a real pleasure. I've officiated at Luther previously, and I would eagerly welcome officiating there again!

I had the pleasure of working the game. Both teams demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout the entire game. Both teams skated hard and played well. The game was decided five minutes into the first overtime. Both teams should be commended on how well they played.

Milwaukee Bradley @ Bay Port
Oct. 25, 2019

From being greeted immediately from Bay Port activities director Mr. Brian Matz and directing us to our dressing facilities, to being escorted off the field by Mr. Matz, this was an enjoyable evening of officiating. The professionalism of both coaching staffs was outstanding. The student-athletes on both teams showed great sportmanship amongst one another. This made it easier for us as a crew to officiate. Very few flags had to be thrown; because of the cleanliness and class shown by both sides. Our crew would just like to let the coaching staff at Milwaukee Bradley and Bay Port and players know that they should be commended for their actions and behaviors that night.

Burlington @ Westosha Central
Oct. 21, 2019

A true and outstanding show of sportsmanship was on display at Westosha.  It was a hard fought match with high intensity play by both teams. Before the match, each coach shook our hands and each starter from Westosha shook our hands. Everyone was disciplined in performance and sportsmanship. After the match, both coaches shook our hands and the captains also shook our hands. In over forty years of officiating, I have not had the privilege of seeing such great sportsmanship by both schools. The fans were cheering, not showing displeasure with close calls. It truly was a pleasure to work this match!!! Both schools should be proud of their teams and coaching staff!
