The Iowa High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has congratulated Akron-Westfield for fine sportsmanship shown in 2008-09 sports events.

The Westerners, players, and coaches did not have any ejections from events last year.

"You are one of 220 schools, which calculates to 56 percent of the IHSAA membership, who had no athletes or coaches ejected during the 2008-09 school year," wrote Rick Wulkow, executive director, IHSAA.

"Keep the emphasis where we need to have it as it relates to our students and coaches representing our school, our community, and patrons. We do appreciate your leadership," the letter concludes.

The letter was addressed Aug. 17 from the IHSAA office in Boone.
