Farmville Challengers Celebrate A Successful Season

Farmville Challenger Baseball, a team/league for children with disabilities, played its end-of-the-year game on Saturday at the Longwood University softball field. The game was followed by an awards ceremony and an ice cream party. The league was founded by Matt Lucas, an associate professor in the Department of Health, Athletic Training, Recreation, and Kinesiology at Longwood University, four years ago. The Challengers play most of their regular-season games on the Cumberland High School softball field. Helping to make the league a success this year was Brittany Long, Amy Scott, and Stan Montgomery, along with the parents, and most importantly, the players.
