We believe there’s something more important than just winning or losing a tournament. We believe that the team, school, and fans who support their athletes with dignity and class are the true champions. That’s why we’ve proudly sponsored the WIAA/Rural Mutual Insurance Sportsmanship Award for 56 years.
We would like to congratulate Baldwin-Woodville on being this year’s recipient of the Girls Softball Sportsmanship award.
When talking with Head Coach, Tim Klatt, we asked him what this award meant to him as a coach, the team and community along with how they teach their athletes about sportsmanship.
Coach Klatt has been coaching varsity softball since 2017. He coached this year’s juniors and seniors at the 10U level. Coach Klatt said, “My favorite part of coaching is watching the players grow as they become young adults. I’m fortunate as I get to see these student-athletes on so many different levels. I have them in class at the high school, I challenge them on the field and more importantly, I get to interact with them at team get togethers. It’s so enjoyable to watch the girls interact with each other outside of the classroom or competition.
Congratulation again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship award. This is a great achievement for the Baldwin and Woodville communities.
