Bonduel @ Wittenberg-Birnamwood
Sept. 12, 2017


 want to commend the players and coaches for their hard work and sportsmanship during the pre-game, the warm-ups and throughout the match. I also want to commend both schools for their fans.  Fans were positive during the entire match and there was not one instance where I heard a negative comment from the stands.  I want to specifically point out the student section from Wittenberg-Birnamwood­. They were outstanding!  They were constantly cheering for their team, getting excited over great plays, and never engaged in negative cheers or jeers toward the opponents.  A shout-out to the coaches, students, players and staff on a job well done by both schools.

Janesville Parker @ Whitewater
Sept. 11, 2017Sept. 11, 2017


This game was a great example of High School sportsmanship. This was played on the 16th anniversary of 9/11, and to begin with there was a great tribute given by John Chenoweth, the Whitewater coach. The game was a hard fought game and although there were some hard fouls, the offending player often was there to help up their opponent off of the ground. None of the players disputed any calls or talked back to the officials. The fans from both teams cheered positively and we did not hear any complaints about calls or boos. As an officiating crew that referees 20-plus games per season, we were in agreement that this game ranked at the top for positive sportsmanship. What a pleasure it was to officiate this game.

Greendale @ New Berlin Eisenhower
Sept. 8, 2017

It was a pleasure to work the Friday night game. The staff at Eisenhower was fantastic. When we arrived, we were met by game manager Bill Knapp, and he took us to our locker room, where we were given all the information for the night. He escorted us into our area for halftime where we had refreshments and homemade snacks for us. The play on the field was outstanding, players helping each other up, handshakes, pats on the back, etc... The sidelines had zero issues and that is a reflection of both Coach Kern and Coach Stoltz and I commend both of them for that. After the game Coach Stoltz came up and personally complimented a number of our crew members on his appreciation for what we do. Working events like this is what makes this profession so great! Congratualtions and good luck.

I feel the need to submit what we thought was the model for WIAA high school sports sportsmanship. What a great experience our crew had. The players coaches and fans were the model for what makes the game so enjoyable. We want both communities involved here to know without doubt the high level and quality of their respective staffs. Thanks to all involved including the Marshfield AD and our caretakers for the night. What a super experience.
