The Van Vleck High School Lady Leps softball team gave back to their community this Christmas season by adopting two local families in the community to provide them with a Merry Christmas. "This is part of why I coach, I want the girls I work with to understand there are other rewarding things in life then just what we do on the field,” said VVHS Softball Coach Rebecca Hanson. “My job is also to provide them with life lessons that help make them grow into strong young ladies. The girls really did well this season by providing gifts for five kids. They had fun shopping for them and hope they have a very Merry Christmas.”
