Today we mourn the passing of Olympia native and our Artesian teammate Austin Kelley. His family announced this morning that he was recovered in the Salmon River in Idaho after an 11 day search. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Kelley family, all of his friends and everybody that he touched during his 26 years. We loved the sacrifice that Austin made, juggling work, family, coaching and more to play for his hometown team last season. He was a natural leader and a calm presence on the field that made everybody around him play better and we looked forward to having Austin back with us this season as a captain. Everybody in the Artesians family is heartbroken by his loss and he will be greatly missed.
