Turns out pitting teachers from two elementary schools against one another in a softball game can be lucrative, and it’s the type of event that fosters a strong sense of community, PTA member Corie Pierce says.
“It’s really not a rivalry but it is a very fun, feel-good community event,” Pierce says.
It’s an annual event; this year’s game took place last week at Lake Highlands High School. It was well attended, with families filling the bleachers and lining the fences.
The PTAs split profits from concession, T-shirt and player trading cards sales.
It looks as if the LHE v. Wallace staffer softball game is well on its way to becoming a neighborhood tradition, Pierce tells us. “It has turned into an excellent annual community event.”
