Brent Darnell didn’t know Breanne Knishka very well when he heard that the Cashmere girls basketball team’s star sustained a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the spring of 2012, but he wanted to pass along his regards anyway.

Darnell, who by that time had resigned his position as the Eastmont girls basketball team’s head coach, tracked down Knishka’s cell phone number and sent her a text that said, ‘This will be a minor setback for you that will lead to a major comeback. I know from watching you play how hard you will rehab your knee, and you’re going to come back better and stronger than ever before.”
