When Ryan Hagen became head coach of the softball team at Summit Hill Junior High School, he had to tie his players' shoes. Now he's coach of the 2018 Illinois Elementary School Association Class AA state softball champions.  

Summit Hill, located at 7260 W. North Ave. in Frankfort, recently won its first ever state softball championship with a 4-2 nail-biting win over Edwardsville Lincoln on Saturday, Sept. 22, at Champions Field in Normal.
