As a soccer and softball player, Leslie Sullivent, was the school's most "motivational" athlete, her Veterans High School coaches say.
Her 11-year-old sister, Bridget, recently started to help manage the high school soccer team, and coaches say the two were best friends.
"I'm just happy they're together, I know that up there they're going to be watcing all of us down on the softball field and all their friends," says softball coach and Mossy Creek Middle School Physical Education teacher, Amy Gauntey.
Friends, teachers and staff in two Houston County schools today are mourning the two sisters, who died after a Wednesday night wreck on Highway 96 in Bonaire.
Leslie Sullivent was a 17-year-old junior at Veterans. Bridge Sullivent, age 11, was a sixth grader at Mossy Creek Middle School.
