SFHS Softball - More Important Than The GamePublished by kippy.bishop on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 14:19
Last summer Juab Senior Sam Guillory played catcher for the SFHS Lady Dons softball team. A few days before school started Sam was in an automobile accident which has left her paralyzed from the waist down and also left her with limited use of her arms.
Junior Kelsey Christensen who pitches for the Dons was impressed with Sam's ability as well as her confidence both on and off the field. "She was just a person who knew who she was." said Christensen.
Senior Mariah Peterson who plays 1st base remembers Sam for her great attitude. "She just fit right in from the beginning and was always so friendly. She is a member of our team."
The Lady Dons have been selling old fashioned suckers at every home game to raise some much needed funds for Sam's medical bills.
Following the last home and region game for the Lady Dons on May 3rd they were able to present Sam with a check for $1,000.00. The team also made a quilt for her with all their signatures and #'s.
SFHS Principal Dave McKee is very proud of his softball girls, " We just do things different here, and this is what we're about, looking out for others and doing positive things."
Way to go Lady Dons!!!
