INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) Theres a hidden gem at the University of Indianapolis, but she comes with a team of 24 young women. Head softball coach Melissa Frost is closing in on a milestone and sharing a very personal victory that inspires her team.

Frost just earned a 600th win as a coach at the university and is 21 wins away from 700 in her coaching career. But she always finds herself back on the field no matter what challenges are thrown her way.

Hard work at practice is an expectation from coach Frost.

I cant imagine getting up and actually doing a job every day because I love what I do and this doesnt feel like a job to me, she said.

She was a standout at Marshall University and then went on to pitch professionally for the Akron Racers.

Shes tough and competitive and shes going to work you until you cant work no more, junior Brooke Montgomery said. Shes going to get the best out of you no matter what.

But dont let her fool you, shes got a great sense of humor and a heart made of gold.

Just to be able to be an influential person in the life of an 18 to 22-year-old is just where God meant for me to be, Frost said.

Frosts faith was tested in 2016 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I was a patient at Community South and the nurses there in the oncology unit, its very rare that you will find people that will pray with you, she said.

Her mom was right by her side.

I think that strong support and my faith not only got me through cancer but has also gotten me the opportunity to share the word elsewhere, Frost said.

She never stopped coaching and traveled to games after chemo treatments. She says she couldnt have done it without the help of a special man in her life.

I couldnt ask for a better partner in life than David, she said. His love and support through chemo, I think thats hard for any man to watch the woman they love go through something I went through.

Her girls are thankful for him too.

He is just as much in it as we are and coach Frost, Montgomery said. After the game, he gives everyone high fives and tells them awesome job. No matter if we win or lose, he is there.

Now, she has a chance to share her story with the ones she loves the most.

Every three months coach Frost has a check up. Shes currently on a chemo pill for 10 years.

As for the team, theyve been to the World Series twice and dream of the day they bring home a national championship.

Seloni Khetarpal was arrested Feb. 13 by Massillon police and charged with disrupting police services, a fourth-degree felony,The Canton Repository reported.

Jail records show that Khetarpal, 36, repeatedly called emergency dispatchers because her parents had terminated her cellphone service, which they paid for.

An officer contacted her and advised she call emergency services only for emergencies.

Two hours later, she called again and was belligerent and stated she believed it to be a legitimate issue, according to jail records.

Court records do not list an attorney who could speak on Khetarpals behalf.
