Eau Claire North @ Rice Lake
Feb. 9, 2018


I want to commend Todd Marks (head coach, the staff and players for outstanding sportsmanship.  In a heated playoff type atmosphere Marks exemplified behaviors of how a coach and educator should handle himself. The contest was very intense. Marks was great to work with when he had questions about calls during the game. The players were respectful throughout the contest. Oftentimes getting the ball for us on dead balls. The captain of North asked respectful questions at appropriate times during the game. I appreciate Coach Marks’ leadership and character.

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!!

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!

We wanted to take this opportunity to expressway our appreciation to all members of both coaching staffs for their exceptional sportsmanship and high level of professionalism throughout the entirety of the game. Both coaching staffs placed a heavy emphasis on coaching their kids, which is to be commended. If there is a sportsmanship award, it should be given to Lomira and Cedar Grove-Belgium. We look forward to working at these schools in the future.

Oconto Falls @ Freedom
Dec. 8, 2016


Upon entering the gym, we were welcomed by the host athletic director, Ms Olson.She directed us to our assigned locker room, and told us special events going on that night.  During the game, both coaches and players were very respectful of our crew.  The scoring table personal provided us with water that even had our names on them to identify whose was whose. At the conclusion of the game we were surprised to see some additional "nourishment" in the form of hot dogs and popcorn.  This was greatly appreciated from our crew and want to let the WIAA know of the great hospitatlity of the home team. The Oconto Falls coach thanked us for a good game despite being on the losing end of the game. We would like to thank all of these individuals for making this a enjoyable game to work and wish both teams the best of luck this season.

Omro @ Randolph
Dec. 2, 2017


After head coach Tyler Fischer (Randolph) gave a wonderful tribute speech about former Randolph standout Greg Stiemsma's career and accomplishments, both teams gathered together at mid-court in a terrific display of sportsmanship and mutual respect while taking a picture with Steimsma. Coach Fischer and Head Coach Tyler Goss (Omro) were very professional throughout the contest and both teams played hard. A special thanks to Randolph AD Kevin Knudson and his staff for the wonderful hospitality. It was a really fun game to officiate and a great day of basketball between two classy programs!

Beaver Dam @ DeForest
Nov. 30, 2017


Our crew had the privilege to observe outstanding sportsmanship displayed by both teams during the game. Regardless of score, both teams played incredibly hard, showed great respect for one another, and represented both of their programs with a ton of class. This contest stood out to our crew because of the outstanding character displayed by Head Coach Jerry Schwenn (DeForest), Head Coach Tim Chase (Beaver Dam), and all of their assistants, captains and players. When a player went down, others helped them back up. When the ball went out of bounds, players got it for the officials. Coaches coached, players played, and officials officiated. Thank you all for being first-class role models and for providing us with such a positive officiating experience. We really appreciate it!

Young Coggs @ Milwaukee Marshall
Nov. 28, 2017


Jontae Peterson of Young Coggs displayed a calming present for his team. He kept talking to teammates to stay calm and focus when the game was not going their way. He led by example when calls were called against him. He asked questions respectfully. He talked to his teammates that appeared upset and kept them focused on the task at hand. Peterson displayed great sportsmanship throughout the game such as handing the ball to officials when applicable and not arguing calls that went against his team.For those aforementioned reasons, I feel he needs to be recognized for displaying excellent sportsmanship.
