Luke Janette is one of four coaches who all share the role of head coach.
“I have coached for seven years, and enjoy teaching them to throw, catch and hit, I love just being able to coach,” Janette said.
The other coaches for the 6U Bombers team, who spend time teaching during the season and after in All-Star play are Quinn Southerland, Garret Rayborn and Emily Murray.

Audrey Janette went 11for13 batting, Kate Carlton was 9 for13, Ryder Southerland was 9 for12, Ryan Marks went 5 for12 and Emory Fuller went 4 for 12.
