Talked with Nevada Union softball coach, Kelly Boren, this morning about his team’s victory over Lincoln on Monday. The Lady Miners, like the rest of the school, were shocked and saddened by the loss of Mr. Zetterberg, who died suddenly of a heart attack this past weekend. Coach Boren said the girls were very solemn, and maybe not ready to play a game…when they came together and decided to dedicate the game and their performance to Coach Zetterberg..and put “Z’s” on their arms as a tribute. (Nice picture in the Union sports page). And what a tribute…a 6-0 win with two pitchers throwing a one hitter and everyone contributing to the victory! Amazing what can happen when a team comes together…even in difficult times.
