WENATCHEE — For all practical purposes, Wenatchee Valley College softball coach Shelly Pflugrath has known that the Knights are the best team in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges East Region for some time now. The players have known it as well.
But Pflugrath and the Knights never take anything for granted. Even though it surely doesn’t happen very often, they know they’re capable of getting beat at any time That’s why they work relentlessly to make sure that doesn’t happen. That’s why, in Pflugrath’s opinion, each East Region championship the program racks up — the Knights clinched their eight straight East title Friday with a 9-1 and 8-0 wins over Treasure Valley at North Rotary Park — should be treasured and appreciated for what it is and what it means.
