It’s five and alive for Deanery League!

It’s five and alive for Deanery League!

 

There are no win-loss standings, no league champions, no awards, and no play-offs.

But that doesn’t bother the hundreds of Floyd and Clark county children who will take to the fields this week as the New Albany Deanery Soccer League kicks off for the fifth time.

Organizers have said that because of the league, student participation among 3rd to 8th graders in extra-curricular activities has almost doubled in recent years.

 The children will participate on a record 27 teams in games at two locations until the end of May.

Among the schools involved in the fun are Our Lady of Perpetual Help; Holy Family; Sacred Heart; St. Mary of the Knobs; St. Paul’s; St. Anthony’s; Providence Junior High; St Mary’s New Albany; and St Mary’s Navilleton.
