EL DORADO, Kan. (KSNW) – Head coach Doug Chance has lead Butler Community College’s softball team for the past 17 years and just celebrated 700 career wins with the Grizzlies.
“I wish I could take credit for all those banners and stuff, but honestly, we just had some good kids,” said Chance.
Butler is currently 43-2 headed into NJCAA regional 6 tournament this weekend in Dodge City.
“Honestly, it’s the coach, staff, it’s unmatched,” said Madi Young, a native from Derby who has known Chance for years.
“If you do anything wrong, you’re not getting punished. You’re being corrected,” said Chance
Doug believes the success of the program over the years is due to the staff building a foundation that the ladies buy into.
“The lessons we learn from the pulpit about Christian life really translate on the field and that’s the culture of this team.”
