Xavier @ New London
April 26, 2018

This was a great softball game that came down to the very end. Although the softball was great, the sportsmanship by the players, coaches, and fans was even better. The players picked up the bats for each other, they complimented each other, they even joked with each other on the bases from time-to-time. The coaches were also excellent. One thing to note is how encouraging the coaches were to there players throughout the game. Lastly, we had several fans compliment us on the way out of the venue and even had a lady yell to us as we were leaving and ran up to us so that she could comment on how positive we were with the players throughout the game.  We commend these two schools for promoting positive sportsmanship with their players, their coaches, and their fans. Job well done!!

Appleton East @ Neenah
May 3, 2018

I wanted to take the time to recognize the players and coaches of your varsity baseball programs.  Coach Piepenbrink of Neenah and Coach Reed of Appleton East are fine examples of coaches that teach. Throughout the entire contest they encouraged their players by instructing them on how to get better. Jack Carlson the catcher from Neenah and Jack Habeck the pitcher from Appleton East showed grit and determination throughout the entire contest. The manner in which they encouraged their teammates with their positive words and hustle were noticed.

We would like to recognize both teams for good sportsmanship, not just one player but all players, Colfax and Coach Dickerson’s showed great team play during the game, and Boyceville also showed nothing but respect to all. Have a great rest of the year teams.

Hartford @ Slinger
April 30, 2018

A huge crowd was on hand, and the fans exhibited outstanding sportsmanship cheering their team on with no complaints about the officiating. We certainly enjoy working for both AD's (Slinger - Mike Daniels and Hartford - Scott Helms). Both teams and coaches were very professional throughout the game. (Slinger - Kam Koplitz and Hartford - Eric Vanden Acker). The Orioles led 2-0 before  We were definitely impressed with the high level of competition and excellent behavior of both teams. Well done!

Platteville Invitational
May 1, 2018

This meet was to be a triangular but two more teams were added as everyone is looking for meets to get their runners experience, having so many meets canceled this spring.  Athletic Director Mike Foley and Coach Rob Serres met me and welcomed me, as well as thanked me for coming to be the starter for this event. It was great to see the athletic director help run the meet. It was a nice day with temps in the 70s. All of the athletes displayed great sportsmanship, cheering for one another, helping each other with the starting blocks, congratulating the winning athlete, and enjoying the competing against each other. All of the coaches, athletes and event workers had a great event. What was really nice was the number of athletes from Platteville and the other schools who came up to thank me for starting their race. All of the teams (Richland Center, Dodgeville/Mineral Point, Southwestern, Potosi, and Platteville) should be proud of these teams for their display of great sportsmanship. Keep up the good work and good luck in your remaining meets.
