Legacy League shines spotlight on participants

The Jackson Parish Legacy League continued their play this week with games that took place on Field 3 of the Jackson Parish Recreation Department Sports Complex, located at 5254 Hwy 4, just east of Jonesboro.

The League is not about winning or losing or even keeping score but rather designed to give young people with physical, developmental or cognitive disabilities the opportunity to compete in a fun filled environment under volunteer assistance.

In conjunction with the Jackson Parish Recreation Department, the Jackson Parish Journal is pleased to shine a spotlight this week on a couple of the competitors as well as provide photographs of those who received medals.
