As she stood and addressed cancer survivors, cancer caregivers and the 30 some-odd Relay for Life teams at McClure Field on Friday, event chair Mindy Noel couldn't help but get a little choked up talking about one team - and team captain - in particular.

The team was named Punk's Purple Posse and the posse was being led by Noel's daughter Becca. All 9 - sorry, 9 1/2 - years of her. She was, by far, the youngest team captain at the Callaway County Relay for Life on Friday.
