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 over 55 years.
We would like to congratulate the Brillion Lions on being this year’s recipient of the Boys Basketball Sportsmanship Award.
When talking with Head Coach, Chad Shimek, we asked him what this award meant to him as a coach, the team, and the community along with how they teach their athletes about sportsmanship.
Coach Shimek has been coaching for 22 years in the Brillion School District within the Basketball program; the last 8 years have been at the varsity level. He also went on to comment, “My favorite part of coaching is being a part of a larger program. I enjoy working with youth, coaches, and parents in building a program we can all take pride in.” said Shimek
Congratulations again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship Award. This is a great achievement for the Brillion community.
