And no, we did not adopt kittens…yet. Two of our Wildcats coaches have had a busy offseason with the births of their precious new babies. Coach Jordan Olson and girlfriend Dallas welcomed little Paisleigh at the end of October just in time for Halloween. And Coach Tanner Lestus and girlfriend Janine welcomed little Grayson recently as well. The Wildcats CREW is so excited for both coaches and to watch these little ones grow up!
