Long-time softball coach and Assistant Athletic Director Kay Sopocy was given a surprise party on Saturday afternoon before an intra-squad scrimmage. The Titan pep band was in attendance to play the National Anthem and a soaring rendition of the Titan Fight Song following Sopocy delivering the first pitch. Much of Coach Sopocy's family, including many grandkids, were in attendance, as were numerous GBS softball alumni and the next generation of Titan softballers, represented by many young members of the Glenview Fastpitch organization. It was a fitting tribute on the eve of Sopocy's retirement.
2016 Thunderbolt Classic schedule is now posted!
