Soccer comes to Sabine in big way

By Daniel Jones, editor

 Soccer, known affectionately as the beautiful game, is played by 250 million people in over 200 countries and dependencies across the planet, but hasn’t had a home in Sabine Parish until now, as this fall will bring about league play and even a more advanced club-style team and potential sports academy.

After months of hard work, and maybe a few hiccups here and there, Christopher Dodson, Shawn Bozzell, the town of Many, and several other entities are pleased to announce the new sporting opportunities, and extend an invite to interested parties to the Five Dollar Futbol Clinic featuring the Northwestern State Demons soccer team at the Sabine Parish fairgrounds on July 7. Currently, improvements are being made to the land behind the rodeo arena, but if not ready for play, the camp will be held in the outfield areas of nearby baseball fields.

Operation GRITS campaign underway

PLW Integra Insurance is thrilled to have been selected as an official partner with Operation GRITS, and is collecting items for “With Love from Lou-siana” care packages to be sent to troops overseas this summer.

Operation GRITS is a project comprised of volunteers from Texas to Georgia. Some of the participants are military veterans, parents, and spouses of active and retired military, while some have no military connection other than a love of country. What brings them together is the care and concern for soldiers as they serve overseas, far from family and friends.

Hawks named runners-up after heartbreaking final

By Daniel Jones, editor

 

An absolute heartbreaker is the only way to describe the LHSAA Class B finals as it pertains to the Zwolle Hawks, who were chasing their first state championship. The final against Oak Hill began as a pitchers’ duel, with Zwolle first opening the scoring at the top of the third inning after Christian Howard got on board and then Britt, who would eventually steal third before being left on third. Oak Hill came back in the bottom of the third with a lead off single, but saw the Hawks defense work out of a tough situation for no runs to score.

It was the bottom of the fourth where things got tougher for the Hawks when an error allowed a runner to reach first. Another single saw Oak Hill put two base runners on with no outs. A few batters later and the Rams had a 3-1 lead. They would score two more in the bottom of the fifth.
