In 12 years of coaching softball at Coleman, Chad Klopf has seen and worked with numerous outstanding athletes. But he has never seen a softball player quite like Katelyn Pnacek, the Comets’ senior leader and one of the best all-around players in the area in recent history.
“She’s right at the top,” Klopf replied when asked where Pnacek ranks among the players he’s coached. “She’s our career leader in home runs by a ton. … I’ve had some great kids here, and I had great kids when I was at Merrill. I’ve seen great kids when I was in high school. But, overall, you just can’t say enough about Kate.”
