“SPECTACULAR SPORTSMANSHIP”

My partner, Sharon Walker, and I officiated volleyball matches at Normal Calvary Christian Academy between the host school and Heyworth Jr. High School on January 16, 2018. We discussed after the match how impressed we were with the sportsmanship shown by all participants: coaches, players, scorekeepers, administrators, and fans. We did not hear any negative comments in either the seventh or eighth grade match. What was most impressive was how the fans would cheer their team each time they made a good play and would cheer for both teams at the end of a long rally. The sportsmanship was spectacular; it was refreshing to officiate a contest where players played, coaches coached, fans cheered good play, and officials were allowed to officiate without ridicule. Kudos to all involved in this contest!!
