Some counselors do additional work here at Granger. Ms. Catten coached the softball team two years ago. She also played softball when she was in high school, and only softball, but many other sports, too.
“I played softball throughout my entire childhood. When I got to high school, I began to play other sports and became very involved, I coached here at Granger, but I found that it didn’t work with my schedule very well, so I couldn’t continue being the coach,” Catten said.
