Fox Valley Lutheran @ Waupaca
April 2, 2019

A note of thanks to Activities Director Aaron Jenson and his crew at Waupaca High School. On my officiating partner Brent Thompson and I had the privilege of working the game. Aaron welcomed us and made us feel right at home while managing three other home events. Coach Mondelle and Coach Kramer thank you for leadership in modeling sportsmanship. Special thanks to Isaiah Ulman from FVL and Jack Menzies from Waupaca. These two athletes demonstrated leadership skills through their positive encouragement towards their teammates and hustle on and off the field. All in all it was a great day for spring sports.

Dennis Simpson Invitational - Superior

I observed many acts of good sportsmanship, but this one stood out from all the others. Sam Nelson, a young lady from Webster High School, helped a young lady from Hayward High School up after she fell down at the end of a highly competitive 800-meter run. Sam displayed compassion and concern this young lady from Hayward. Sam is coached by Roy Ward. Congratulations!

The atmosphere was a fun in which to work. The two teams played hard with a great sense of sportsmanship. Each team battled hard but with respect for each other and the game. The fans were great for both teams. They cheered appropriately for their teams.

Op-Ed: Dear Mom and Dad: Cool it!

If you are the mother or father of a high school athlete here in Wisconsin, this message is primarily for you. When you attend an athletic event that involves your son or daughter, cheer to your heart’s content, enjoy the camaraderie that high school sports offer and have fun. But when it comes to verbally criticizing game officials or coaches, cool it.
