LETTER: …kudos…for being the only Vermilion CC team that managed to compete this year

Ely Echo Editor:
Congrats to Coach Tom Coombe, his coaching staff and the Ironmen Baseball team for qualifying for this week’s NJCAA Region baseball tournament in St. Cloud.
I hope the college and baseball fans of Ely and beyond are proud of this accomplishment as you also should be.
First of all, kudos to you for being the only Vermilion CC team that managed to compete this year and represent Vermilion Community College during this difficult past year. Congrats for navigating your way through the COVID Protocols and playing and competing at a high level and representing your college proudly.
You have worked your way through a very adverse year and deserve any recognition that comes your way individually or as a team.
Best of luck in St. Cloud this weekend, enjoy the experience and take it as far as possible!
