The St. Edmund Lady Jays softball team won their first district title since 2001 – and they had help in the form of eight year old Gracie Zaunbrecher.

After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor, St. Edmund reached out to Gracie. It started with a first pitch and became something so much more. The friendship, inspiration, and hope created are just a few reasons why St. Edmund receives the LHSAA/FOX 44 Play it Forward award of the month.
