Team Louisiana 9-year-old and under captured the USSSA State Tournament in Broussard this weekend. The team members hold up their hands to show-off the gold rings that they won.

On Friday, gyms in Louisiana were able to re-open because the state is now in Phase 1. Snap Fitness in Abbeville re-opened Friday at 8 a.m. and clients saw a new look when they walked into the aerobic area. There was a plexi-glass hanging from the ceiling in between each cardio-machine. In the photo is co-owner Jill LeBlanc fixing the plexi-glass. Walking on the treadmill were Donnell Sonnier and Clay Chauvin.
The days of gyms being sweat-soaked, smelly, boys clubs was far behind us before we even heard the term, COVID-19. Snap Fitness has always been one step ahead by building a brand around modern, clean, fresh, and motivating unisex fitness centers.
Elise Vincent, a North Vermilion graduate, was the leadoff hitter for Northwestern State this year. The senior was off to a great start, starting in all 22 games. She was batting .323 and scored a team-high 20 runs. She stole 12 out of 13 bases. Entering the season she was a preseason All-Southland Conference First team member.
Where were you when you got the news the season was over?
I was at my home in Natchitoches. It was the weekend after my coaches told us that our conference game had been suspended.
What was your reaction?
Kiley Naomi is entering her sophomore season at Oklahoma State. She graduated from North Vermilion High School two years ago. She is off to a great start for the softball team.
