OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — Two Olathe North baseball players decided to do something special for the girls in their school on Valentine’s Day — all 1,100 of them.
Connor Hughes and his best friend, Dillon Ponzer, and other members on the school’s baseball team began planning Wednesday’s surprise about three weeks ago.
Principal Jason Herman fully supported the idea to buy flowers for every girl in the school. They originally planned to get roses, but went with the more budget-friendly carnations.
Hughes and Ponzer donated $200 and the school helped with the rest.

The surprise flowers were handed out Wednesday morning to all females at the school.
