Coach Paul Moore said, “these kids were resilient. Even when down 3-0 you could feel they still thought they were going to win.”
“For me it has been a incredible ride,” said Moore. “There have been 3 coaches on Lassen softball history and each of us ended with a section championship. Donna Morleni, Dennis Giuntini and myself – I feel lucky to be a part of that group.”
I had the pleasure of being on the Lassen High Softball team the year Coach Moore started his softball coaching career and it has been a pleasure to see what he has done with this program. Coach Moore, there have been a lot of great young ladies come through the Lassen High Softball and know that you have left an impact on so many of them. You will be missed on the field.
Congratulations to the 2016 Section Championship Softball team. Good work ladies. And good luck to Coach Moore in your next adventure!
