WINDSOR — — Being diagnosed with breast cancer wasn’t going to stop Bobbi Moran from coaching the Loomis Chaffee field hockey team this fall.
But after she was in a moped accident in August — well, one of her friends felt like they had to have a little talk with her.
“It was about a month and a half ago, just before preseason started,” Moran said. “I was laying in bed, I couldn’t really move anything. She was like, ‘Bobbi, enough already, you’ve got to slow down. Please, please take it easy. Take a leave of absence.’ ”
“I thought, ‘OK, but I don’t want to give up field hockey. These kids, I love these kids. They make me so happy. Is there a way I can do this, just the coaching thing, but not the work thing?’ ”
That is one tough coach. No way that there are any players complaining about running sprints.
