Webster @ Luck
Sept. 6, 2019

There was great sportsmanship displayed by both coaches, teams and fans. Each set was very competitive. On one occasion as one of the sets was nearing the end, a player from Luck hit the ball and it landed out of bounds, but before the ball landed a player from Webster was in the net. The Webster  team was already celebrating what they thought was their point. When the captain came to me, I clarified that one of her teammates was in the net before the ball landed out of bounds. Her response was very respectful even though the call went against them and even though it was a very important point in the set.  On another occasion, there was some confusion about the libero replacement. A player from Luck also displayed great poise and confidence and asked for clarification of when the libero could come back in. What a great night!

Black River Falls @ Luther
Sept. 9, 2019

These two teams hustled throughout and worked hard from the first serve to the last point. The coaches also coached hard the entire match and were very positive throughout. In addition, the fans from both schools were outstanding and were always cheering in a positive manner. I particularly want to acknowledge the players from Black River Falls. It was a tough match for their team, and  they fought hard and showed great sportsmanship. After the match was over they shook hands with the Luther players and genuinely congratulated them. Then, after they shook hands with the Luther players, they came to me as the R1 official and shook my hand and thanked me for reffing the match. These young ladies showed everyone what high school athletics is all about. Congratulations to both teams and schools for showing true sportsmanship and showing everyone what high school athletes, coaches, and fans should be!

Denmark @ Wrightstown
Friday, Aug. 30, 2019

Both high school administrators and communities of Denmark and Wrightstown should be proud for the way these young men and coaches carried themselves during game. Prior to kick-off and throughout a highly competitive game, the coaches and players addressed our crew with class and manners of the highest standards we have ever seen! This game demonstrated first class leadership by the coaching staffs of Denmark and Wrightstown, carried down through every player and made us appreciate why we officiate to begin with. Our crew would like to tip our hats to both programs especially Coach Neuman and Coach Klister for their professionalism, words of encouragement to their players, and for being a positive role model for their respective programs and communities.

Plymouth @ Sheboygan Falls
Friday, Aug. 30, 2019

This was a close game with a lot of aggressiveness and hard hitting, but no dirty play or trash talking from either team. All the players and coaches treated us with respect and made it a pleasure to officiate this game. These were two very good teams and we wish them the best the rest of this season!

Fox Valley Lutheran @ Denmark
Friday, Aug. 23, 2019

Both teams are to be commended for the show of sportsmanship throughout the game. Every individual involved, both players and coaches, are to be proud of how they performed during this game. Denmark coaching staff was exceptional to work with and their players were excellent to work with on the field. The Fox Valley coaching staff dealt with the one issue we had during the game and all players were great to work with. Best of luck to these two programs going forward this season.
