State Summer Games Recap

The below is a guest post from Athlete Channing Ewing from our Northwest Area about State Summer Games.

I certainly had fun in HammondChanning Ewing 2014 this past weekend. I got to meet Jay Ladner (Southeastern Louisiana Men’s Basketball Coach), Pete Panepinto (Mayor of Hammond), David Vitter (US Senator), and David Ducre (LSU Football Player). It was great getting to see Gordy Rush again (he came to watch me play basketball in Baton Rouge and got me a ticket to the Tiger Tour). As usual, I enjoyed the Dance and Olympic Town which I usually can’t do during State Indoor Games. I really enjoyed it.
