Sportsmanship Plus - Boys Soccer

Edgerton @ Mount Horeb
Aug. 26, 2023

The game was a competitive and the play was hard and fast. Often challenges ended up with both players on the ground. What was nice was the first to get up helped out the other to get to their feet. The yellow cards that were issued were playing yellow, and not for dissent of intimidation. At the end of the game all the players were shaking the hands of the other players and the Mount Horeb players thanked Edgerton players.

Hurley @ Ashland
Aug. 25, 2023

This letter is to acknowledge the outstanding sportsmanship exhibited by coaches, players, and fans. First, we wish to acknowledge the Ashland staff for their outstanding communication and hospitality. We were provided escorts, refreshments, and accommodations that allowed to us prepare for and review after the game. Coach Larson and Coach Erickson did an exceptional job motivating their team to play hard and showcase positive sportsmanship. Coaches used words of encouragement and kept words positive during adversity. It was noticed that coaches received a great deal of respect from their players. Players exhibited positive sportsmanship their coaches modeled. They listened to the officials, kept words constructive, and motivated their own team to excel; plus, the captains did a great job keeping their team focused and motivated. We would like to acknowledge the grounds keeper, announcer, clock operator, and chain crew. The maintenance team did an exceptional job with the field. This rivalry is spirited and the fans did a great job cheering for their own team. No derogatory remarks were heard.  We thank Ashland High School for their outstanding hospitality and congratulate both schools for their efforts in teaching and demonstrating positive sportsmanship.

Holmen @ Chippewa Falls
Aug. 17, 2023

The Chippewa Falls athletic department greeted us at the door, took us to the field then made sure we had water at halftime. After the game we were led to the locker room and escorted out. That sounds simple, but trust that this treatment is not common enough. Now the game. These two teams .should make a video of what WIAA sports are supposed to be. GREAT sportsmanship from 6 p.m. until the final whistle. Both coaching staffs, players and fans were absolutely exemplary. Sportsmanship galore. What an experience. We can’t say enough good things. I hope both communities realize how special their football teams are. Congratulations to everyone involved. This is how it’s done!

Sun Prairie East vs. Watertown & Hudson
May 13, 2023

Sun Prairie East held a quad. We had Hudson versus Kettle Moraine, then versus Watertown. Three quality teams and programs and we enjoyed two great games! These were not the closest games, but Coaches Blegen, Wolbert and Cashin, and their players were outstanding! Quality players and play, but classier young men! Coaches could not have been better! Just the way high school sports should be. Huge thanks to all three schools!
