BOB FORD/TIMES NEWS Palmerton head softball coach Glenn Reimer works with Michelle Rickert on her hitting as teammates Vicki Graver and Katie Reimer look on.

When Glenn Reimer took over the Palmerton girls softball program last year, he found out quickly he had one major task ahead of him.

"There was no structure, no caring, no commitment," said Reimer. "But I knew that the girls that were coming up, I was coaching in an in-house travel league called the Carbon Fireballs. And that team did very well. So I assumed if I could keep that core group of girls together, we'd be okay. Now those girls have reached the high school level and their commitment and attitude towards everything to do with softball is 110 percent.
