“Key has a very special way to encourage these girls and as a coach I could not function without her. She has been my right hand man for a long time and I do not know what I am going to do without her. Tonight Key was able to not only support us from the side line but also on the floor. She recorded 4 points on the serve and 3 digs. Thank you Key for all your hard work and dedication. We love you,” Kalizewski added. “Tonight was a very special night for the Norwalk Lady truckers. Tonight we secured our seventh NOL title with at least a share, but more importantly, we had the opportunity to honor someone who has been a great influence to our team.”
