Don Bosco's Becker wins 900th game

Posted: Updated:
GILBERTVILLE (KWWL) -

Don Bosco softball coach Jane Becker captured her 900th career win as the Dons defeated Starmont 11-6 on Friday.

"When I came to 400, I was like, well, that's a big win," said Becker, "My son said you've got to go for 900, well I'm here for 900."

Becker, who started at Don Bosco in 1987, called the milestone memorable, but not overly relevant to their current goal. The Dons enter their final two regular season games with an 18-14 record, looking to reach the 1A state tournament for the second time in three years.

"It's a special number, special day," Becker said, "but at the end of the day, it's just another game."
