WEST FARGO â€” When Enderlin/Maple Valley coach Neva Hamre was asked about a few of her players following Friday's 25-4 win over Grafton in the Class B State Semifinals, she was at a loss for words.
"I just don't really know what to say about them," she said. "We're just â€” I don't know â€” it doesn't seem hard. We're just doing what we do."
What they do, and continued to do at the second day of the inaugural Class B State Softball Tournament, is win.
The chaplain at my work witnessed it. I came to my office and stood in the doorway of the conference room where most of my co-workers gathered.
â€śMay I have your attention please? I have an announcement to make,â€ť I announced in my best announcement voice.
The room hushed as they all turned their conversations off and their ears on. They took their stare off the glare of their computer screens in order to properly delve in to the proclamation I was about to proclaim.

WEST FARGO â€” All season long, Enderlin/Maple Valley softball coach Neva Hamre knew her top two pitchers were sophomore Kaylee Johnson and junior Cassie Pautz. But with the success Johnson had throughout the season, Pautz didnâ€™t log a single pitch at the varsity level.
Until Thursday, that was, when she took to the circle in the Falconsâ€™ 18-2 win over Pembina County North to open the Class B state softball tournament at Elmwood Park in West Fargo.
â€śI only pitched two JV games, so it was a little nerve wracking,â€ť Pautz said.
