Ascension Parish, La (NBC33) — Ascension Parish President Tommy Martinez announced that the parish’s recreation department will continue to hold the annual National Football League’s Punt Pass and Kick Competition and Major League Baseball’s Pitch, Hit and Run Competition in the City of Donaldsonville.
Ajia Mitchell, program coordinator with the Ascension Parish Recreation Department, said Mark Peters, director of Hope Youth Development, has passed the torch to Mitchell and parish recreation leading the way for continued competition.
“After 10 years of doing a great job heading these two events, Ascension Parish will take over where Director Peters and Hope Youth Development have forged the way,” Mitchell said. “We will continue this effort to keep kids involved and physically active in our community.”
Mitchell said the dates for both competitions are being finalized and will be announced at a later date.
