Wisconsin Rapids Lincoln @ Wausau West
Sept. 2, 2022

Our crew wants to acknowledge the great sportsmanship and overall exhibition of high school sports at the highest level. What a great atmosphere and amazing game we had the privilege to officiate. Wausau West and Wis Rapids are both coached by extreme classy coaches. The players were so very helpful towards each other. A high level high intensity conference game for sure. As the game unfolded the sportsmanship even took a tick upwards. We want both schools and there fan bases to understand just how special their respective programs are. Great experience and exactly what high school sports on a Friday night should be. What an honor for us to be a part of it.

Lake Country Lutheran vs. Lakeshore Lutheran
Aug. 26, 2022

From the moment we arrived, we were escorted to a nice area where we had plenty of room to change clothes and get ready for the game. The field was a little bit of a hike, so we were given a ride on a golf cart to/from the field before/after the game. On the field, both teams were very respectful, They were helping each other up off the ground after a play,and they played hard and played the game the right way. Players came up asking about cross eye black they had on and asked if it was alright. I advised it was illegal and had to remove it, so they did. They were aware of making sure their teammates had their pads covered up or their knees covered, and didn't complain about anything. It was a well-played game, and even the fans thanked us (from the losing team) as we were getting a ride back to the locker rooms. The AD even went to the concession stand to grab some pizza and popcorn for us for after the game. All in all, class act all the way around, and they should be very proud of the atmosphere they have at that school. I would gladly work their games again in the future. They went above and beyond to make sure the officials were taken care of. Thank you!
