This year’s youth baseball season ended July 8, and the recreation department staff would like to recognize the coaches and sponsors for all of this year’s divisions.
We cannot overstate our thanks to all of the volunteer coaches and sponsors who once again stepped forward to ensure a successful season. Without the exemplary efforts of the volunteers listed hereafter — some of whom assumed coaching responsibilities in three divisions — administering an enjoyable program becomes nearly impossible.
In the coach-pitch division, we thank coaches Cade White, Kody Hill, Billy Cotts, Shane Bradley, Darren Lewis and Herman Gonzales.
In the 9-10 bracket, thanks go out to coaches Darren Lewis, Lisa Scott, Karen Ross, John Garcia and Matt Bowdridge.
Coaches garnering thanks in the 11- and 12-year-old division include Scott Anderson, Brooks, Lindner, Darren Lewis, Kelly Miller and Torry Hessman.
On a similar note, we thank the following sponsors for their generous contributions to the program: White’s Family Funeral Home, Pagosa Quality Flooring, Design A Sign, Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy, Cowboy Carpet Cleaning, Better Than New Upholstery, Ross Enterprises, Kristi Morelock, and Ron and Cindy Gustafson.
Equally important to the program is the support from the participants, and we would like to thank all of the players and their parents and guardians for contributing to this year’s program.
As always, thanks again to each of you for your continued sportsmanship, dedication and support.
As part of its continuing campaign against littering, the Town of Pagosa Springs is inviting citizens to enter this year’s anti-litter slogan contest.
