The formally known Phoenix Spartans now known as the Apollo Spartans founded and lead by Head Coach Edd Schommer and Assistant Coach Keith Nardecchia are an organization with in the CCSL (Cactus Cities Softball League). The Spartans are an established “C” division team, sister team to the “B” division Phoenix Trojans also founded and lead by Head Coach Edd Schommer, whom also is a player, filling the pitcher position with the Trojans. The Apollo Spartans are firm believers that in order to be a class organization they must show modesty in victory, graciousness in defeat, and pride in their effort. Sportsmanship is also considered to be very important as well, as is loyalty to the coaching staff and all team members and sponsors. And no matter how tough the competition gets, retreating would be an easy choice for them. However, Spartans never retreat, Spartans never surrender, so go spread the word. SPARTANS! PREPARE, FOR GLORY... (quoted off movie 300)
