"As a coach, I'm just super proud. There isn't a girl on this team that doesn't perform on the field and off the field," said Coach Greg Phillips. "They know that what they're doing in the classroom and the education they are getting here at Chillicothe High School supersedes their softball careers."
Phillips said he looks to continue this tradition of being #1 for years to come and hopes those in younger grades knows that this is becoming an expectation.
"It sets the bar really high, and I hope it sends a message to the JV girls and girls coming out of middle school that yeah, this coach is crazy enough to actually look at GPAs," he said.
