Coaches in youth sports can play a big part in young athletes lives. Girls on the Flames 10-U softball team learned some life lessons this summer.
Coach Julie Bachand, who had coached many of the girls from the time they started playing and had a daughter on the team, lost her fight with cancer July 14. She kept coaching as long as she could, and the team was undefeated in league play and won the midseason and end-of-season tournaments.
Wearing "J" ribbons over the weekend, the Flames won the state title in Burnsville.
