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 Highland Cardinals on being this year’s recipient of the Girls Basketball Sportsmanship Award.
When talking with Head Coach, Josh Tarrell, 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 Tarrell has been coaching for 15 years. He also went on to comment that – “The best part of coaching is the time with the team in practice for two hours every day. It is a chance for me to just be a coach and a time where I get to share laughs, tears, and great memories with so many teams over the years.
Congratulations again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship Award. This is a great achievement for the Highland community.
