"At the beginning of the year, all of the girls signed up as individuals but through hard work, the realization that they have an impact on something greater than themselves has been found. The girls cheer each other on, pick each other up and stay after to focus on their skills individually. Two months ago, it would have been a rarity.

I also believe that the girls realize that as student-athletes, they are students first. Playing softball and being part of the NEO Knights softball team is a privilege. We stress the value of being a successful and well-rounded person as well as life skills."
