FSHS received the following email this morning from one of the officials from last night's Soccer game in Joplin. We would like to congratulate our players and coaches on the job well done! Very proud of them and all our athletes and coaches!
I was an Assistant Referee for tonight’s contest between College Heights and Fort Scott. We do not have a means to send a special report to your state athletic association and after some discussion between the three of us, we felt it necessary to send you an email regarding the Fort Scott players and coaches.
None of us had officiated Fort Scott before and had no idea what to expect. I can tell you that we all walked away feeling blessed with how polite and respectful the players were throughout the entire evening. This was a direct reflection I feel of their coaching because the two coaches were absolute gentlemen as well. In fact, your coaches recognized that we did not get any water brought to us during the game and offered us bottled water to drink.
You should be extremely proud of this team in the way they represented your school and community and we thank you for that. Please extend our appreciation to them so that they know their behavior did not go unnoticed.
