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 Middleton High School on being this year’s recipient of the Girls Tennis Sportsmanship award.
When talking with Head Coach, Matt Given, 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 Given wrapped up his first season as Middleton Tennis Head Coach. His favorite part of coaching is developing young people into better human beings. There is not a better feeling than hearing from a former athlete who says you made an impact on them in ways they could not believe.
He went on to comment that; “This award is one that my girls and myself are very proud of, but more importantly it is just my girls showing who they truly are as young ladies.”
Congratulation again on a great season and winning the WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship award. This is a great achievement for the Middleton community.
