When David Shubert stopped coaching the Fred T. Foard softball program in 1996, he didnâ€™t know that he would return 16 years later to coach his daughter, Lexi.
The Shuberts are both members of the Lady Tigers softball program, which is off to an 8-0 start this season, including 3-0 in the Northwestern 3A/4A.
David â€” who not only coached the Foard softball program (1991-96), but also coached the schoolâ€™s basketball program from 1992-98 â€” said he remembered his time as hoops coach, when his young daughter attended the games.

CONCORD â€” NASCAR's chief appellate officer overturned on Tuesday the bulk of the penalties levied against five-time championship winning crew chief Chad Knaus, who still must pay a $100,000 fine because Jimmie Johnson's car failed the opening day inspection of the Daytona 500.
Chief appellate officer John Middlebrook overturned the six-race suspensions NASCAR handed down to Knaus and car chief Ron Malec, and ruled both instead will be on probation through May 9.
