Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Basketball

Ironwood, MI @ Hurley
Feb. 2, 2018

We had the privilege to officiate the Hurley vs. Ironwood boys basketball game. This match-up is always a good battle of two really good programs. Not only did the game live up to all expectations, but far exceeded anything in recent history. The week was Snow Week at Hurley with all of the excitement that all of the special activities brings. Then the JV game went into double overtime with lots of loud cheering and encouraging by each team's fans. The varsity game was able to match this and go beyond. The gym was packed with a great pep band, cheerleaders and fans that really supported their teams. All night long the players played really hard, coaches coached and fans were really loud urging their team on. It was back and forth all night. The students, parents and all in attendance cheered for the players from both teams. This truly exemplifies the reason we have athletics.  It was a great show of sportsmanship.  Congratulations go out to both schools, coaches, players and fans!  Well done!!

The two teams played hard and displayed excellent sportsmanship. The fans were great. St. Thomas Aquinas had a group of girls that cheered on their team and never said anything bad about their opponents. It was a fun atmosphere to work in.

Turner @ Clinton
Dec. 28, 2017

My officiating partners and I would like to commend the Clinton boys basketball team and coaching staff for the way that they conducted themselves during this hard fought game. The coaching staff openly asked our officiating group questions regarding calls we had made. They were professional during each and every encounter, accepted our explanations and thanked us every time. The players did likewise. They played hard and were respectful throughout the course of the game. Clinton certainly proved to us that their coaching staff is teaching the right things and leading by example.  Well done!
