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 Eau Claire Memorial on being this year’s recipient of the Boys Team Tennis Sportsmanship Award.
When talking with Head Coach, James Litscher, 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 Litscher has been coaching for 32 years. During that time, they have been fortunate to win the Sportsmanship Award several times. He enjoys having young people come into their program and watching their growth in 4 years. He also enjoys hearing about what they do beyond those 4 years.
Congratulations again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship Award. This is a great achievement for the Eau Claire community.
