SPRINGFIELD CHRIST THE KING RECOGNIZED FOR POISE AND RESPONSIVENESS
January 10, 2020 - Submitted by IHSA Basketball Official Robert C.Y. Von Collins

During the A game for 8th graders, there were many instances when the Christ The King hosts' fans, coaches and players could have responded in kind to the unsporting conduct of fans, coaches and players from the visiting team; however, Springfield CTK folks were models of good sporting behavior and they displayed great patience while letting the officials resolve and calm down a few negative situations that arose during that game. The CTK A.D., Bob Hamilton is also commendation worthy in my opinion.

ASSUMPTION CENTRAL A&M STUDENT SECTION APPLAUDED
December 12, 2019 - Submitted by IHSA Basketball Official Lawrence Watts

During the girls 8-2A Sectional at Nokomis JH, the Central A&M student section behaved superbly. Prior to the game, they were cheering for their team during warm ups and when there was technical difficulties with the national anthem, this student section stepped up and sang the national anthem, getting a majority of the gym to join in before finishing. During the game, the student section cheered properly, supporting their team without any negative comments to the officials or anything at all said to the opposing team. They kept their energy going even with their team down in the fourth quarter. Student sections cheering like this, in the right way, make the games fun to officiate!

At the Saturday, October 12 cross country sectionals race at Shorewood Troy, a Hufford 7th grader, Aaliyah Calderon stopped during her race to help up a competitor from Minooka who had fallen and hurt herself. Aaliyah picked that runner up and helped her all the way to the end fo the course and they crossed the finish line together. We are so proud of Aaliyah for sacrificing her race to help a racer from another team - such an incredible show of sportsmanship!

TREMONT BASEBALL TEAM GIVES TEAMMATE SUPERSTAR TREATMENT
September 10, 2019 - Submitted by IHSA Official Llew Smith

On 9/10/19, I was umpiring the second game of a doubleheader between Tremont and Washington Middle School. When #25 for Tremont came to bat, his team got very anumated. He struck out, but when he got a foul ball, the team was screaming encouragement from the dugout and cheering him on. The second time that he came to bat, he swung and missed at the first two pitches. His team was very encouraging. On the third pitch, he connected and hit a nice fly ball to right field that fell in for a hit. The Tremont bench went crazy; the kids were juping up and down, slapping each other on the back, the coaches were high fiving each other, etc. It turns out this was the player's first hit of the year and later in the game, he had a catch that was very nice. His team was so supportive and encouraging and he was treated like a superstar by his fellow players and coaches. It was really great to see.

GIRARD NORTH MAC GIRLS BASKETBALL APPLAUDED FOR OUTSTANDING SPORTSMANSHIP
October 15, 2019 - Submitted by Girard North Mac Principal and Athletic Director John Downs

This is a good story of sportsmanship from Girard North Mac's intermediate/middle school media specialist - she has a daughter on the Auburn team:
I have never been more proud to be a part of the North Mac family as I was last night! The athletes that took the floor showcased the best sportsmanship that I have ever seen in a Junior High game. When a player from either side was knocked down, both teams were there to pick the girl up regardless of the color of her shirt. At one point, there was a face plant between both an Auburn girl and a North Mac girl in the 8th grade game. The North Mac girl landed on top, helped the Auburn girl up, and immediately was apologizing for taking them both down. I was sitting next to the mom of the Auburn girl and she looked at me and said, "I think that North Mac girl is apologizing to my daughter!?" I was quick to respond that she probably was and that each one of these girls is nothing short of amazing! The athletes that we have on our 7th and 8th grade teams should be commended for their outstanding display of good sportsmanship! I may have been wearing blue to support my own daughter, but that didn't stop my heart from pointing out to those around me that I am blessed to say that I have taught almost all of the North Mac girls that were on the floor or bench last night and they are all nothing short of amazing with hearts of gold! I think they all deserve a shout out for showcasing great sportsmanship throughout each play of the night and being great examples of what a North Mac student athlete should look like!

SPORTSMANSHIP KUDOS TO CARTHAGE GIRLS BASKETBALL
October 12, 2019 - Submitted by IHSA Official Kennedy B. Gooding

Carthage fans and players showed AWESOME behavior during this afternoon's contest. Carthage lost both of the games today; I wanted to give praise to Carthage because they are doing things the right way in a world that is going down the wrong path.

October 2, 2019 - Submitted by Homer Glen Homer Principal Troy Mitchell

Shorewood Troy is being recognized for opening up their baseball field to Homer Glen Homer for an IESA Baseball sectional contest as Homer's field was too wet to play on October 1. Thank you to the athletic administration, custodial staff and coaching staff at Shorewood Troy for going above and beyond to accommodate this game and keep the state series moving along last week!

DELAVAN BASEBALL RECOGNIZED FOR SPORTSMANSHIP
September 13, 2019 - Submitted by Mason City Illini Central Principal Jennifer Durbin

On Friday, September 13th, one of the players from Illini Central Middle School was struck in the chest with a ball while at bat. Immediately, he fell to the ground and was not breathing and did not have a pulse. The visiting team had two parents administer CPR and while our team went to find an AED, the Delavan team had brought their AED to the game. Using their AED, they were able to revive the player. Once EMTs arrived, the student was taken to the hospital and treated. After the game, the team followed up with the administration at ICMS out of concern for the player. The team all signed a Delavan hat and visited the boy at home. The player and his family, as well as the staff at ICMS, were very touched by the generosity and care shown by the Delavan team.
