We would like to wish our beautiful daughter and sister a wonderful 17th birthday. We are very proud of all of her accomplishments as a first-year varsity pitcher. She won 20 games with the help of her wonderful team. She exceeded 112 strikeouts. I wasn’t able to attend all of her games, but witnessed her first inthe park homerun against Ridgeview, Va. We would also like to wish Dennis Thacker a happy early birthday! We would like to thank him for his time and dedication given to Rachel as her pitching coach. He is a wonderful person and pitching coach. He is dedicated and will help any young athlete. Happy birthday, Rachel and Dennis!!
