Luxemburg-Casco came home with more than a state title in from the state girls volleyball tournament.
The Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association and Rural Insurance Co. recently announced that L-C is this year’s recipient of the WIAA team sportsmanship award for the state girls volleyball tournament, which was held Nov. 7-9 at the Resch Center in Ashwaubenon.
The Spartans earned the honor for the third time overall and for the first time in girls volleyball. The other two recognitions came in team wrestling in 2001 and 2007.
The WIAA/Rural Insurance Sportsmanship Award is presented to one school program and community (or communities in the case of cooperative programs) in each of the State team tournaments that demonstrates outstanding sportsmanship.
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 ensure support for their teams are positive and that the highest ideals of sportsmanship are demonstrated.
L-C’s “large contingent of fans displayed outstanding sportsmanship, enthusiasm and community support en route to winning the Division 2 championship with a three-set victory over McFarland in the championship match,” the WIAA news release said.
Schools receiving honorable mention were McFarland, Hillsboro, Wausau Newman, Oconomowoc, Union Grove and Wisconsin Lutheran.
Bay Port in football, Waukesha West in boys volleyball, Lake Geneva Badger in girls team tennis and Eagle River Northland Pines in boys soccer were the other schools selected as the WIAA team sportsmanship award winners for the 2019 fall state tournaments.
