Coach John Mager would like to congratulate the other Cottonwood team, Schlader Photography, on winning the championship. It was nice to see the two Cottonwood teams make it to the championship round. It made for a perfect scenario.
Thanks to Jeff Uhling and Militec for sponsoring our team and Arnzen Construction on helping keep the fields nice and green. It is businesses like yours that give the children hope, fun and joy. Thank you to the parents for your support and letting me coach your children.
