It was short and sweet and now it is over for summer league play of the Jackson Parish Recreation Department. All in all it turned out to be a very successful campaign as despite all the restrictions and problems caused by the COVID-19 epidemic the eight teams that competed were able to finish the season without a hitch.
“We were very happy with the way things turned out,” said JPRD director Tommy Smith. “To say that we had challenges to meet is an understatement but thanks to the staff, parents, coaches and the players we made it through with no problems.”
Six league champions were crowned with Leach’s Turf Divas’ (9-10 girls) and Catfish Inn (11-13 girls) winning titles in undefeated fashion. Additional league winners were: Heyhunner’s (7-8 girls), Traina’s Bakery (7-8 boys), Rhode’s Farms (9-10 boys) and Jonesboro Glass (11-13 boys).
