Herb Quade Sportsmanship Award

 Herb Quade Award
Pat Clark presents Herb Quade with an award for his 50+ year of service as a high school official in March of 2001. 
The Fruit Belt Officials Association membership voted during the Fall 2001-02 general meeting to present a new "Coaches Sportsmanship Award" annually to coaches of each of the seven sport teams the association supports: basketball (boys' and girls'), football, wrestling, volleyball, baseball & softball. Each will be presented with a certificate noting their achievement. Of the seven, one will be chosen "Coach of the Year" and honored with a plaque commemorating the occasion. At the Winter 2001-02 general meeting it was decided to name the award posthumously in honor of long-time Fruit Belt member Herb Quade, who passed away in September of 2001. Herb was involved with high school sports as an official, coach and administrator for over fifty years. All area varsity coaches active in the above-mentioned sports are eligible for the award, which is presented to an individual exemplifying the high ideals in coaching and sportsmanship that Mr. Quade always represented.
