On Oct. 16, the Willmar varsity girls' soccer team, along with parents and some fans, gathered in Albert Lea for the Section 2A championship game.
The game itself was what sports are made of: great action, competitive play and players giving everything they had to win the game. The results were not in Willmar's favor, but not for a lack of trying.
That night I was so proud to be a part of some of the best sportsmanship and determination I have ever seen from a sports team. I was extremely honored to say I was a Willmar parent and fan. The players and coaching staff have such integrity.
I would like to publicly thank the Willmar varsity girls' soccer team and coaching staff for demonstrating true sportsmanship, determination and courage.
