August 3, 2018

At the conclusion of each athletic season, the Twin Lakes Conference collects sportsmanship ratings from officials who officiate the various contests. Those ratings cover the sportsmanship displayed by the players, coaches and fans of each respective school in the Twin Lakes Conference.

The Twin Lakes released the 2018 Softball and Baseball Sportsmanship ratings, and Emmetsburg's Lady E-Hawk softball team tied for first place in Sportsmanship. The E-Hawk Baseball team placed seventh in the Sportsmanship rankings for baseball.

A perfect rating is 1.00 and the three ratings for each school in a game are averaged together to determine an overall rating. Additionally, for a school to recieve a rating, 70 percent of ballots issued must be returned to give a true rating.

In the balloting, Emmetsburg tied with South Central Calhoun and Alta-Aurelia for the first place honors, with perfect 1.00 scores for players, coaches and fans, Emmetsburg had 86.4 percent of ballots returned.
