I just received word that Larry Sintz of Brookville will be inducted into the Indiana Refereeing Hall of Fame this summer. Larry has been a referee for most of his adult life. His tourney resume for both boys and girls numbers over 100 tourney games officiated. Larry was one of those referees who was always on an even keel. His laid back style worked well for both players and coaches. In recent years Larry spent a lot of time refereeing volleyball.
I not only know Larry as a referee but also as a former sports writer and friend. He worked for the Brookville Democrat as the sports editor until his retirement. While I was actively coaching, Larry wrote a lot of articles about my coaching results here at Batesville. He was always very positive and very fair in all of his reporting. Congratulations, Larry! It is a well-deserved honor!
