Laurens Summer Sports League Cancelled

Laurens Parks and Recreation has announced cancellation for the remainder of its L3 summer youth program. A Friday statement said, “Today we are making the announcement that the remainder of the 2020 Summer L3 season is being cancelled. It is an extremely difficult but at the same time an easy decision. The recent high spikes of Covid 19 cases in our county have presented us with challenges that we have never faced. When you have a couple hundred people come each night to watch it only takes 1 to spread through the league. So at this time we are going to err on the side of safety and try and help protect our community the best we can. As the recent announcement of the same thing from Laurens District 55, this just shows that we are in a serious situation. We know there will be many who disagree, we ask that you just understand that our decision is to protect and not hurt. Thank you for your understanding.”
