A compliment to our coaches and athletes

I have been away from the sport for three years and one thing I've noticed this year is a huge uptick in the athletes reaching out to shake the referee's hand before their opponent's and also doing so afterward. It's gone from "occasional" three years ago to occurring in well over half of my matches.
I tip my hat to the coaches, captains, and athletes who continue to encourage good sportsmanship.
