Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Basketball

Big Foot @ McFarland
Feb. 4, 2020

I have had the privilege to officiate two games this season for Big Foot's boys varsity basketball program. The first game I officiated them in was early in the season they lost. The second game, they won. Although both games had different results, the sportsmanship and respect to opposing players and officials in both contests is what stood out the most to me. I  thank the Big Foot players for showing good sportsmanship and staying composed in game situations where things could have escalated. Big Foot a helped opposing players up, chased after loose for the officials, staying composedd and ultimately playing their game. Thank you for being great examples of sportsmanship looks like at a TEAM level. To Coach Price and the rest of the coaching staff. Thank you for asking legitimate questions and hearing us out with your concerns throughout these contests and quite simply trusting us by letting us officials do our job while you do yours. Keep up the great work!

Waupun @ Fond du Lac
Jan. 31, 2020

This game was a big one for both schools. Not only would it determine who would make it to the the Badgerland Conference Tournament Championship game on Saturday, but it would also go a long way in determining seeding for postseason play. The game was fast paced and very clean. Waupun had zero penalties for the game and Fond du lac only had three or four. I was extremely impressed with the sportsmanship displayed by both teams. The student-athletes represented their schools and coaches, Coach Bucholz (Waupun) and Coach Sarazin (Fond du lac), to the highest degree. Well done young men!

Newman Catholic @ Stratford
Jan. 21, 2020

This a complement to both head coaches, Jason Vander Elzen from Newman and Tammie Christopherson of Stratford. Both teams have been taught the right way to play defense and how to hustle. The entire evening they coached and my officiating crew officiated. It was a honor to officiate for both of these teams. The winners were both teams for the great example and teaching of both of these coaches. A very big thank you and keep up the great work.

Manawa @ Pittsville
Jan. 16, 2020

I commend Manawa and Pittsville for the atmosphere they created during their wrestling match. The night started like most others, but it was soon apparent that this was going to be a special night. Well before the contest started, the fans started filing in to show their support for the Pittsville coaches who were going to be honored that night in their final home dual after coaching for over 60+ combined years. Coaches Dan Hahn and Rick Winters of Pittsville have been great stewards of the sport for a very long time. The night started by acknowledging the support of the parents, then honoring the seniors, and finally, the recognition of the retiring coaches. All of this was before the contest ended in a tie. Through the entire contest, Coach Brad Johnson of Manawa, along with the Pittsville coaches, encouraged their wrestlers and never directed a negative comment towards me. All of the athletes on both teams fought hard and never showed displeasure with any call or the match result. It was a great night to be an official and accolades to both teams!
