“In today’s world of sports we will never see anyone else coach for 50 years,” said Mr. Lovrich. “She is not one to seek attention, but this is something very special and she deserves to be recognized for this. She has molded so many athletes during her tenure without ever wanting the spotlight. This is just our way of showing her thanks for all she has done,” said Mr. Lovrich.

Mr. Lovrich said it has been a pleasure to work with Miss R and she is very knowledgeable of her sport.

“Miss R is the only coach the B-A girls have had. She is the face of the team,” Mr. Lovrich said. “So many people in Bellwood and throughout the district respect her and look up to her. When you mention her name to former B-A students, athletes, or parents everyone says how much they love Miss R.
