As most of you know, our 2014 State Fall Classic took place this past weekend in Carencro, LA. Close to 400 athletes from all across this state of Louisiana participated in aquatics, horseshoes, and softball!
When asked what his favorite part of the weekend was, Channing Ewing, an athlete from our Northwest Area, stated “I really enjoyed the dance and scaring a few people (Channing dressed as a werewolf to the Halloween themed dance)!! I also liked the jambalaya that I had for supper Saturday night. I thought the fields, dugouts, and restroom facility were great. They were a major improvement compared to last year.”
Comment with your feedback of the weekend! You can also stay tuned to our website and all of our social media pages for upcoming events in your area!
