Softball team makes her proud

I just wanted to thank the Elk River Elks softball team for an exciting season and a more exciting state tournament. We attended all the games to cheer our daughter Ali and the team on, and we could not be more proud of all of you. You all made the right plays, got the hits you needed, had strong pitching, great defense and amazing coaches. The girls all played great together, which helps to win championships as they proved. To the coaches, thanks for being dedicated and showing the girls hard work goes a long way, mixed with believing in yourself and the desire to win. To the town of Elk River, thanks for the police escort down School Street – a perfect ending to a perfect day. And to my daughter Ali, you are amazing, and if my heart can take it, I would be willing to have this experience again with you. Congrats to the Elks 2013 Minnesota state champs! — Kathleen Krohn, Elk River
