But this summer, she completed the trip, reaching the summit of Mount Katahdin, the 5,200-foot

"I love to see the kids make a nice play. I love to see the smiles.   "I don't like to see the negativity that sometimes happens, and that's why I try to teach respect for the game. I teach them to always think of positive things to say to your teammate or your opponent. Don't say anything negative. Respect the game."   Sniezek, known as Tito to his friends,
