Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the West Allegheny softball team.
"When the West Allegheny softball job reopened this past offseason, it was an easy decision for former coach Mindi McFate to apply.
A mother of two toddlers, McFate decided to retire from coaching after the 2013 season, her 11th consecutive on the job.
She continued to teach at West Allegheny but when the job unexpectedly reopened again, McFate could not resist.
She was familiar with nearly the entire roster. Considering the talent returning for the Indians this season most coaches would not resist. What drove McFate back though was not just the player's talent."
