“I have a ton of respect for Catherine as a coach and what she’s done for the Newburyport program,” said Beaulieu. “They have just gotten better and better and better, and obviously we had a slide last year.”
As Beaulieu and her team build to a winning record once again, she knows it’s the important things in life that keep the game in perspective.
“What amazes me is that she does it with a family of three at home, and still gets it done and is committed,” Beaulieu said of Batchelder. “The kids like playing for her, they play hard for her. She’s built a great program and you’ve got to respect that.”
