TOMAH, Wis. (WKBT) - Area student athletes are learning more about sportsmanship.
The Scenic Bluffs Conference hosted its annual leadership summit Wednesday morning in Tomah.
High school coaches and athletes from the conference got together to hear from several guest speakers about the importance of being a good sport and being a role model for younger kids in the community.
Students at the conference say that means supporting others, which sometimes even includes those wearing different uniforms.
"It feels great to have someone just encourage you," said Hillsboro sophomore Paige Stull. "Like, if you have someone just say, 'great job' it makes you feel special, it makes you feel like you can be you and be the better you."
This is the second year the Scenic Bluffs Conference has hosted the leadership summit.
