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.
