Devastating loss for our community



The Merrill High School Volleyball team is 42-2-1 on the season with one week to go until the playoffs.

Then this happened yesterday.

My sails are just flat. Of all the coaches I've worked with over 34 years, I knew Sally Pfund by far the best. Not only did I cover her teams as a sports editor for three years, I also did the team's highlight video every year and was working on my fourth one for her.

Like all the MHS coaches, she had my home phone number, and she was not shy in using it. If my caller I.D. said Merrill Senior High I knew it was her.

There is a press conference in an hour to brief the community on what is going to be done in regards to her service. Most likely it will be held in the high school fieldhouse. This woman has affected a lot of young women in the time she has been here. A more fitting tribute I cannot think of giving her then holding her service in where she worked.

There are times I absolutely HATE my job. This is one of them.

Please say a prayer for her husband and two college age daughters. Also pray for her team that they can find the strength to rally and make a strong postseason run as a tribute to her.

Updated story.

Her wishes were for her organs to be donated, and that was done this morning.
