Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Basketball

Phillips @ Rib Lake
Dec. 17, 2019

We want to commend the Phillips coaching staff and players for their positive sportsmanship. We've officiated several of Coach Raskie's games during past seasons and he has always been respectful to us officials prior, during, and after the contest regardless if his team won or lost. His professional approach and management of his staff and players makes officiating his games very enjoyable. What stood out to us for this contest was that after the game we were walking past the Phillips bus to our vehicle and Coach Raskie went out of his way to exit the bus to shake our hands and tell us that we did a good job. This professional gesture and conduct from the head coach of the losing team meant a lot to us. It is also a great example to his players. The Phillips school district and community should be proud of Coach Raskie, his staff, and players. Keep up the great work!

Mauston @ Sparta (JV)
Dec. 17, 2019

Coaches for both JV boys basketball teams for Sparta (Ryan Pawlisch) and Mauston (Josh Potter) displayed excellent sportsmanship. As in every game, there were come calls my partner and I likely missed or got wrong. Despite our human errors and a close, high-excitement game, both coaches displayed and role modeled excellent sportsmanship. Mauston and Sparta are fortunate to have these gentlemen as coaches and role models for their students.

Milton @ Evansville
Dec. 16, 2019

My crew just wanted to commend the Evansville and Milton girls' basketball teams on a great display of sportsmanship during last night’s game. Andie Varsho, AD at Evansville, greeted us and escorted us to the locker room. Coaches Tony Wiemiller (Evansville) and Stacy Skemp (Milton) were a pleasure to work with. The girls played hard and fought until the last buzzer. There was no complaining or arguing of calls. The student section for Evansville displayed the true characteristics of what educational-based athletics is all about! Both fan sections displayed the ideals of great sportsmanship as well. It was a true honor to work such a well-played game last night. Thank you to both teams and best of luck the rest of the season!

Chetek-Weyerhaeuser@ Luck
Dec. 10, 2019

I would like to compliment Luck and Chetek-Weyerhaeuser for the great sportsmanship shown during the game we had the privilege of officiating. It was all coaches and players that helped each other up off the floor, complimenting opposing team members on good shots, The coaches, Chad and Han, would ask questions on calls and thanked us for our rule interputations during the game. It was overall a great game played by all. Chetek-Weyerhaeuser and Luck should be very proud of their coaches and young men for the great sportsmanship displayed during this game.

Sportsmanship Plus - Wrestling

Lomira @ Omro
Dec. 12, 2019

From the moment I had contact with athletes and coaches from both teams, I was shown nothing but respect. Both teams were quiet and attentive during weigh-ins and my pre-meet talks.It was evident that respect and good sportsmanship start from the top on both teams. Both coaches referred to me as sir throughout the night and answer questions with “yes/no sir.” Nearly all the athletes from both teams continued this practice consistently as well. Omro recognized their youth wrestlers that night. During the pre-match face-off, Omro wrestlers came out onto the mat with a youth wrestler to meet in the center of the mat. After shaking hands with the opponents, the Lomira wrestlers also shook hands with the youth wrestler which made their night. Everyone wrestled hard. Irrespective if they won or lost, everyone showed good sportsmanship throughout the dual. It was an honor and a joy to officiate this dual and it was made that way by the sportsmanship of both teams.
