The Athlete of the Week Award usually goes to one particular person who had an exceptional performance, but this week Newsline 9 has decided to honor the entire Pacelli softball team as our Athletes of the Week.
The ladies went to the State tournament in 2002, but it was last years loss in the championship game that really got the girls motivated. Being able to taste that championship trophy had them walking in this year with the mindset to get back to that same place and win it all.
The Cardinals set their goals set on conference, regionals, sectionals then state, and each goal has been reached one by one.
Even when faced with loss the girls viewed it as character building and used it to help them learn how to tackle the next game.
One characteristic that Coach says makes them stand out so much is their depth from 1 to 18, even the girls who don't play are still a very big part of the team.
