Just like that and it's over! I think that it is fair to say that injuries to our defencemen were certainly a difficult hurdle for us to overcome. All in all though, it was a very rewarding year. Certainly challenging at times, but to a player, a great bunch to coach. Similar to Christmas, I will provide closing assessment letters to each of them with the final stats.
Special thanks to my two assistants Chris Hans and Kelly Hall. Their experience, insights and support were most appreciated. I would also like to thank Mike Mattes, our trainer extraordinaire, who always had the players' best interests at heart.
I have to give extra special acknowledgment to our manager, Carol Pittman; to steal a quote from Tina Turner, she is 'Simply the Best'.
The same can be said for you parents.
Players always remember, "Attitude, not aptitude, will determine your altitude!"
