The 14 and under softball team would like to give a special thanks to the Velvet Antler of Nevis that sponsored the team this year. Their sponsorship helped the 14 and under team purchase new uniforms. We'd also like to thank the Park Rapids Softball Club for the extra support throughout the summer. A big thanks goes out to Missy Benson, who was the team manager and statistition. I'd also like to thank Mr. Travis Isaacson for all of his hard work and his helpful advice. Last, but certainly not least, we'd like to thank our parents for all of their support. We couldn't have done it without you.
The 14 and under team came across some tough teams this summer including Baxter, Pequot Lakes, Wadena and Staples, finishing with a 5-13 record. As it wasn't a winning season according to the numbers, I believe we won more than just the games. This group of girls is extremely talented and throughout the summer they improved in every aspect of the game. Their team play and unity really came together and they never gave up on themselves or each other. I'm very proud of each and every girl on this team. It has been a joy to be their coach. I'm excited to see them play in the years to come.
Thanks again to everyone for all of your time and effort. I couldn't have done it without you.
Jackie Griffin, Park Rapids
