During halftime of the football game Friday, August 26, #PointerNation was presented with its WIAA/Rural Mutual Sportsmanship Award that it earned during the State Girls Basketball Tournament in Green Bay in March.

The school received a trophy to display, as well as a banner to be hung in the gym.

This is the third time Mineral Point has been honored with this prestigious award–first for team state wrestling in 2011, last year in 2015 for state boys basketball, and now 2016 for state girls basketball.

WIAA Communications Director, Todd Clark, told the audience this award is one for the entire community and it reflects the outstanding character of Mineral Point players, coaches, and fans.
