I am fortunate to live in a community with a progressive university. Being retired, Fort Hays State University sporting events play an important role in my life. I personally want to thank the coaches and players for the thousands of hours that they spend practicing in order to provide the community with first class entertainment

In the past two weeks, I have had the opportunity of watching Maddie Holub with the help of her teammates throw two perfect games, back to back in Division II league competition, (perfect games, not no-hitters). It was the most exciting sporting accomplishment I have or will ever experience.

It is my understanding no one in Division I or II league competition has ever thrown two perfect games back to back. Bronze statues have been erected of athletics who have achieved far less than what Maddie and her teammates have accomplished.

Thank you, FHSU.
