Making their debut in the Cobb County Parks and Rec League, The Extension United, a co-ed team made up of residents in our women’s program and alumni of our men’s program join our existing men’s resident team and men’s alumni team for the fall season beginning this month.
Our men’s resident team has played every season (spring and fall) for many years, and we’ve had a men’s alumni team for nearly as long. This year we’re excited that the residents of our women’s program are joining in the fun, with the addition of The Extension United team.
John Blalock, a counselor in our men’s program and coach of the men’s softball team since its inception, recently expressing his pleasure about the new team, said, “We’ve talked about starting a co-ed team for about a year. A few months ago we committed to fielding a team for the fall season. It’s great to finally see it happen. I was at one of the practices recently—they’re going to be competitive!”
Of course, it’s not all about winning. What’s really important is learning the lessons that come from teamwork and practicing good sportsmanship. Learning how to have fun while being sober and improved physical fitness are great bonuses.
Please come out to Al Bishop Softball Complex and cheer on our teams. You’ll find the schedules for the Lucky Dogs, our resident men’s team, and The Extension United, our resident co-ed team by clicking on the Calendar link at the top of the page. We look forward to seeing you there!
