    Coach Dave Lowe also passed away this week. Coach Lowe was a great human being who gave a lot of time to the youth of our community for many years. He was the director of Colt Baseball and served as a board member for many years. He coached colt and palomino with Larry Moore, Ron Sharpe, and Andy Simms for a lot of years. RIP coach Lowe—you will be missed!!!!!
