The Elizabethtown Sports Park hosted its second Miracle field tournament of the year yesterday in conjunction with Hardin County Schools, Elizabethtown Independent Schools, and Larue County Schools. Exceptional learners from across the county came together Wednesday morning for some fun on the Miracle Field.
Samantha Daniel, a teacher at J.T. Alton spoke with enthusiasm about the event saying, “Our annual kickball tournament is a trip that students and adults look forward to all year. We are thankful to the Sports Park for hosting us this fall and for allowing us to come back in the spring. We are a community together! We love our students and enjoy seeing our friends from elementary, middle and high schools in the area. We had 3 districts join us this year! Inclusion is so important but so is being a community. We are stronger together!”
The Cecilian Bank and Kona Ice partnered with the sports park to make it a successful day. The Cecilian bank sat up big yard games so that students could enjoy activities off the field when they were finished playing. Kona Ice finished off the day strong by donating free Kona Ice to all the students and staff!
Lauren Bowman, marketing manager at the sports park, said, “This is one of my most favorite days of the year. It’s so much fun to get to see kids from across the county, come together and have fun for the day at the park! Not only is it a fun day, but they are able to practice their money skills at the concession stand, build relationships with others, and have experiences that they will always remember.” The Elizabethtown Sports Park is looking forward to bringing back another Miracle Field event next spring to end the school year strong!
