To the editor:

The Indiana Lady Jays 14-and-younger team would like to thank the following:

Thank you to all the sponsors — Vince Chittum and AmeriFirst Home Mortgage, Rocky Williams and family and Williams Auto Parts, True Value, Dr. Ed Schmit and Schmit Chropractic, Dr. Malcolm George and George Family Dentistry, Williamson-Spencer and Penrod Funeral Home, Crossroads Financial Federal Credit Union, Upperkut Salon and Spa and its employees, Jay County REMC, FCC Indiana, Dick’s Pizza Palace, Renegade Customs and Albany Rehabilitation and its employees.

We also want to thank all the parents for getting players to practices and games on time. I’m sure this, at times, was not easy to do.

We need to thank Jay Community Center and Mitch Waters and Kyle Cook for the help in getting this team started.

We want to thank the coaches, Dace Mumbower, Monica Clairday and Chad Chowning, and also team manager Tasha Allen.

And a big thanks to all the players. Without them, there is no team.

Coach Bob Lake
