Game brings students, school security officers together

The inaugural Kickin’ it with Cops kickball game was played at Volunteer Stadium at the Little League Complex on Thursday. The event brought together seventh graders and their school resource officers from Muncy, Montgomery, East Lycoming, South Williamsport, Williamsport, St. John Neumann, Loyalsock Township and Jersey Shore schools for the day. The day was organized by the area Lycoming County Law Enforcement School resource officers with the cooperation of Little League International. The seventh graders were selected for their high grades and good behavior at their schools. About 150 area seventh graders battled each other in a kickball tournament. The last game of the day was the Kids vs Cops kickball game. The SROs plan to make this day an annual tradition.
