Boys basketball: Roncalli honored by WIAA


The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association, in cooperation with Rural Mutual Insurance, has chosen the recipients of the team Sportsmanship Awards for the 2014 winter State Tournaments.

Earning an honorable mention for boys basketball was Roncalli (25-2), which reached the State Tournament before falling to eventual Division 3 champion Brown Deer 48-45 in the semifinals on March 14.

Winning the award was Cochrane-Fountain City, which fell a basket short in their 54-52 loss in the Division 5 semifinal to eventual champion Thorp.

The award winners are determined by the conduct and sportsmanship displayed by athletes, coaches, cheer and support groups, mascots, bands and spectators. Additional consideration is given for the effort of school administrators and chaperones to insure support for their teams are positive and that the highest ideals of sportsmanship are upheld.

Award winners receive a plaque and banner in recognition of the honor. Schools receiving honorable mention are acknowledged with a certificate of recognition.
