Director Biographies

The purpose of this page is to share with the Prince William Lassie League membership a bit of information to help you get to know the members of our current Board of Directors, as well as how each one serves the League.  This list isn't complete so check back often!  Our Directors are, in alphabetic order:

  • Marvila Arevalo (“Weela”)  Treasurer, Spanish Community Liaison
  • Weela joined PWLL as an Assistant Coach in our Instructional Division in 2011, and finished her coaching days as a Head Coach in our Junior Division.  Although she does not have any daughters in the league, she coaches because of her love for the game and her desire to see PWLL succeed.  Weela serves as a Spanish liaison for our community and has served on the Board for seven years, previously as Co-Director of Equipment, then as Parliamentarian, and now as Treasurer and Sponsor Coordinator.

    Weela currently works for a law firm as a Legal Assistant in Georgetown.  She has been in the litigation field for 18 years and has proven herself to be a dedicated and loyal employee, working her way up from being a receptionist.

  • Mike Holmes Junior Division Director
    Mike's first experience with PWLL was in the early 2000's when he came to watch his friends' daughters play.  He immediately loved the League and couldn't wait for his own daughters to play in the PWLL.  Mike helped as an assitant coach for three seasons before taking the plunge as a head coach in the Instructional Divison in 2017.  Since then, he has coached or assisted for five seasons in both the Instructional and Pigtail divisions.  Mike joined the PWLL Board in 2019.

    Mike has four daughters, all of whom play, or have played, in the PWLL.  His primary reason for coaching is his passion to help young girls develop positive life skills through teamwork, healthy competition, and personal growth.  Nothing makes him happier than to see each of his players improve over the course of the season, gain confidence, and develop a love for the game of softball.

    Mike has been working at the Pentagon as an IT Engineer since 2002.  He enjoys baseball, reading, running, and competing in Tough Mudder and Spartan races.

  • Bill Rutherford  Registrar, Parliamentarian, Webmaster, Secretary
    Bill joined Prince William Lassie League Board as Registrar during the 1989 season when his stepdaughter joined the League in the Instructional Division.  He became the League webmaster in 2002, implementing and managing its first website.  Before the 2014 season he managed the League’s migration to its current web presence and once that was stable, migrated League registration to the current system in time for the 2015 season, allowing parents to sign up with the League and register their players on-line. 

    After a short stint in the military, Bill spent his work career in information technology and later, in technology program and budget management.

  • Patrick Ware  President
    Patrick has been a PWLL coach since 2008. Currently Director of Umpires, he has served as Senior Division Director and Pigtail Division Director.  Patrick has officiated games at all levels for the PWLL.
