Letter: A huge thank you to the Sycamore community

To the Editor,

As members of the Sycamore High School softball team, we would like to thank our amazing community for all of the support during our postseason ride.

We would like thank the Sycamore and DeKalb fire departments and Sycamore police for giving us an escort back into town after winning the state championship. Not only was the escort back into town amazing, but the escort out of town by the Sycamore fire and police departments was a very memorable moment that none of us will ever forget. Also, a thank you to the Sycamore Fire Department for giving us an escort back into town after a huge supersectional win at Kaneland.

We would like to thank our fans for supporting us throughout this amazing journey. Seeing all our fans at Kaneland High School during our supersectional game was an incredible feeling. Not only were you amazing in the postseason but throughout our whole season, too, and we thank you for that. We would like to thank all of our fans who supported us at state, whether that was in person or at home. Along with that, a huge thanks to the businesses who streamed the games for many to watch.

Thank you to all who came out to the parade back into town. Seeing all of the people lined up throughout Sycamore made each one of us tear up with overwhelming feelings of love and support. The town of Sycamore is amazing and we saw all of that Saturday. Thank you to the future Spartans softball players for coming to support us, especially those from the Youth Sycamore Softball League. The youth is the future of our program, and we hope we set a good example for them.

A huge thank you to all the administration and staff who supported us during the state weekend. Thank you to Mrs. Countryman and Mr. Carlson for being there the whole weekend and thank you to Mr. Carrick for everything he did to make sure that the weekend ran smoothly.

Finally, we would like to thank our families. Our families have put so much time and effort into the sport of softball. We would not be where we are today without the support from this community and our families. Thank you for helping us achieve our goal of becoming state champions.

Sincerely,

Your Class 3A State Champions Sycamore Spartans Softball Team
