PICKENS — Approximately 300 colorful plastic balls raced down Town Creek in just under eight minutes in the Pickens Recreation Department’s fourth annual PYAC Town Creek Speedy Ball Race held recently.
Ball #7, bought by Tyler Brezeale came in first place and earned its owner a $200 cash prize. Second place went to Chris Rowland, owner of Ball #191 and winner of a $50 Walmart gift certificate and a Domino’s Family Pack.
Third place went to Tonia Cummings, owner of Ball #241. Cummings won a prize package that included a Domino’s Family Pack.
Three Speedy Ball sellers were recognized for their efforts: Cade DelFavero came in first, Cameron Robinson came in second and third place went to Cora Levy.
Registration for cheerleading and football continues through June 20. The birthday cut off is Sept. 1 for both.
Cheerleading fitting dates are May 28 and June 18 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Pickens Recreation Center on Sangamo Road. The uniform style was new last year so your cheerleader must attend one of the two fitting dates or be able to buy a used one from last year’s season only to cheer during the 2014 season.
The entire set includes a two-piece style uniform, briefs and poms. The cost is $98 for the uniform package plus the registration fee. For additional information, call the Recreation Department at 878-2296.
