Gale-Ettrick-Trempealeau @ Luther
Dec. 6, 2019

From the pregame meeting with the players, to meeting the coaches at the end of the warm up period and throughout the entire contest, both teams (players and coaches) exhibited a high degree of good sportsmanship. Ryan Svendsen, the Luther head coach, didn't question anything during the contest. Louis Hurd, the Galesville-Ettrick-Trempealeau head coach, was very respectful when he questioned something (which occurred only twice). When an issue arose with the G-E-T assistant coach, Coach Hurd acted quickly, professionally and respectfully to resolve the problem. Overall, my crew was very pleased and impressed. The fans demonstrated good sportsmanship as well. It was a positive environment and a fun contest to officiate. It was easily one of the most enjoyable contests I've ever officiated and a real pleasure. I've officiated at Luther previously, and I would eagerly welcome officiating there again!

I had the pleasure of working the game. Both teams demonstrated great sportsmanship throughout the entire game. Both teams skated hard and played well. The game was decided five minutes into the first overtime. Both teams should be commended on how well they played.

Milwaukee Bradley @ Bay Port
Oct. 25, 2019

From being greeted immediately from Bay Port activities director Mr. Brian Matz and directing us to our dressing facilities, to being escorted off the field by Mr. Matz, this was an enjoyable evening of officiating. The professionalism of both coaching staffs was outstanding. The student-athletes on both teams showed great sportmanship amongst one another. This made it easier for us as a crew to officiate. Very few flags had to be thrown; because of the cleanliness and class shown by both sides. Our crew would just like to let the coaching staff at Milwaukee Bradley and Bay Port and players know that they should be commended for their actions and behaviors that night.

Burlington @ Westosha Central
Oct. 21, 2019

A true and outstanding show of sportsmanship was on display at Westosha.  It was a hard fought match with high intensity play by both teams. Before the match, each coach shook our hands and each starter from Westosha shook our hands. Everyone was disciplined in performance and sportsmanship. After the match, both coaches shook our hands and the captains also shook our hands. In over forty years of officiating, I have not had the privilege of seeing such great sportsmanship by both schools. The fans were cheering, not showing displeasure with close calls. It truly was a pleasure to work this match!!! Both schools should be proud of their teams and coaching staff!

Medford @ Merrill
Oct. 18, 2019

The officiating crew experienced outstanding sportsmanship by the Medford coaches, players, and fans. Coach Ted Wilson and his coaching staff did an exceptional job of managing and coaching their sidelines. The linesman commented how the coaches were always positively coaching, requesting for perfection even when plays ended on a positive note. Questions by Coach Wilson and his staff were done in a respectful manner, and the answers received were accepted in the same way. The coaching box was well respected, and the linesman and his chain gang were allowed to timely and consistently manage play. Along with the team of coaches, the crew would like to thank the ball boy Itsey for the fine job in helping the officials keep the game running smoothly. The officiating crew can do their job in a more competent manner when coaches are respectful with officials and each other. How Coach Wilson positively role models his behavior impacts his side of the field. His positive energy was accepted and exhibited by his team of coaches, statisticians, players, and fans. The players communicated well with officials on the field, showed a great sense of humor, restrained from using questionable language, and were respectful of the opposing team as they extended hands to help each other of the turf and padded them on the back for a job well done. The fans were loud and proudly cheered in an encouraging manner. It is clear the school district and their coaches take pride in how their community is viewed by others and the importance of demonstrating the proper competitive spirit.
