Write a memory/story about this coach
At the end of the year, we won our provincial championships. The girls were excited, but more importantly they were exited to share a gift they had made for Susie before the championship game. All the girls had autographed a new softball and presented it to Susie just before we had our team picture! Susie was so touched, she cried.
