Mr. COFFMAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the Girls'
Varsity Softball team of Valor Christian High School in Highlands
Ranch, Colorado on winning the 2015 Colorado 4A State Championship game
on October 25, 2015.
The students and staff who were a part of the title winning Eagle team deserve to be honored for finishing what had already been a fantastic season by winning the State Championship for the second time in two years. Recording 15 shutouts from their 23 victories, and outscoring their opponents 285-29 helps to illustrate just how dominant the Valor Christian Eagles were this past season.
Throughout their performances in the State Championships, the girls of Valor Christian High School's softball team proved that hard work, dedication, and perseverance is the perfect recipe for champions. The team was led to the championship title through the tireless leadership of their head coach, Dave Atencio, and his commendable staff.
I also congratulate the teachers and parents of this great team. The faculty who supported the Eagles throughout the season must be recognized. No team, no matter how talented and committed, can rise to the level of State Champions without exceptional support and guidance from their teachers and parents.
It is with great pride that I join with the families of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, in congratulating the Valor Christian Eagles on their second straight State Championship.
