This past Sunday, Oct. 18, the Rec. Dept. hosted the Punt, Pass & Kick Western Sectional Championship. Participants from all over the upstate, including Gaffney, Union, Spartanburg & Clinton, traveled to Pickens to compete. 51 competitors were vying for a chance to advance to the team championships to be held at a Carolina Panthers game. Collin Fowler, from the Pickens local competition, was our lone first place finisher in the 8/9 age division. The scores of all first place winners will now be submitted to NFL Headquarters for regional comparison. Winners will be notified by mail. I would like to thank all of the volunteers who made the day so successful: Tammy Anthony, Laura Marshall-Powers, Abby Holcombe, Tyler Burgess, JoJo Kelley, Charlie Anthony, Heidi Covey and Steve Thompson. Thanks guys…it was an awesome day!
Don’t forget, basketball registration continues now through November 6.
Until next time…
