Julie Scala:

Coach Paul…lots of amazing memories of her beating our butts all around the softball field and running 2 miles BEFORE practice every day…fond memories of shin splints when we had indoor practice on rainy days and had to do TEN sets of stairs in the old part of the HS basement to 3rd floor, no running shoes then! She used to call me “Granny” because I was too slow, she’d say “C’mon Julie, my grandmother can run faster than that!! I was much better at field hockey because I had mad stick skills – Is she still around?

Donna Smith:

I so remember her…. softball was fun.

Laura Fleming:

JV basketball-gorilla drills and running stairs from the basement to the 3rd floor. But she was in better shape than any of us!

Hilary Nocka:

She coached our field hockey team at least one year–she was terrific!

Pam Finlay:

I remember Ms. Paul during gym and she was tough but nice.
