“I always felt that Angie was like having another coach helping direct our team. Leadership in calling and coordinating defensive plays and strategies was evident while she played at WVC. Angie was a good contact hitter and can effectively convey hitting skills to others. Angie Beal is an excellent person that has a vast knowledge of the game of softball. More importantly, she loves the game and enjoys working with people.”
