Mosinee @ Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln
May 4, 2018

My partner and I would like to take the time to congratulate both Wisconsin Rapids and Mosinee for their demonstration of positve sportsmanship. Athletic Director John Frizzell was on site when we arrived and greeted us with a smile and a warm welcome. Both team coaches (Holberg and Felch) and their assistants focused on coaching their players during the game and all we heard was postive encouragement and reinforcement from them. Coach Holberg requested one appealable play in a professional manner and when he heard the results of our final decision he accepted it and moved on. We also want to recognize the players from both teams that thanked us everytime we dusted off the plate or bases and thanked us at the end of the night for officiating as we exited the field. The community of Wisconsin Rapids can take pride as well with the spectators cheering on the players and letting the officials officiate all night long. All in all, it was a great game to be apart of and the positive life lessons these players are learning will help them be good citizens as well.

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.
