I had the pleasure this fall of watching two CHS athletics teams whose coaches, I feel, deserve to be commended: JV volleyball coach Jessie McClellan and cross country coach Pat Schlapia.

It was fun to watch these two coaches interact with their team members in a way that appeared to make the athletes feel valued and appreciated, whether the first-place finisher, the last-place finisher, a JV, senior or a freshman. Coaches McClellan and Schlapia set the tone for their successful seasons with just the right blend of fun and competitiveness, plus respect for every single student athlete.

Creston parents should feel fortunate to have these two talented coaches impacting the high school experiences of their sons and daughters.
