Lyla Baer, 10, continues to impress her coaches for the 10-and-under softball team she plays for at the West Orange Girls Club. Coach Victoria Trocki and her assistants say the Ocoee youth exhibits a high degree of coachability and always has a smile on her face. She is eager to learn and does all that is asked of her for her team.

“Lyla is the kind of player every coach would like to work with and have on their team,” Trocki said. “Lyla has come a long way over the past couple of seasons that we have had the opportunity to coach her and have seen improvement in everything she does — on and off the field.”
