WENATCHEE — Earlier in the year, Wenatchee Valley College softball coach Shelly Pfulgrath exexpectedly lost a close family member. She was forced to miss some time with the team, and even when she was with the squad, she understandably struggled at times with her emotions. Oviously, WVC’s players sympathized for their coach, and felt her pain. But the team didn’t allow Pflugrath’s situation to overwhelm them — they finished the season with a 39-4 record, an eighth straight Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges East Region championship and a No. 2 seed to the NWAACC Tournament, which begins Friday in Portland. (They’ll begin tourney play with a contest against Grays Harbor at 9:30 a.m.)
