The Dawson County Parks and Recreation Department celebrated the opening day of its spring sports season with a massive gathering of youth teams and their families at the Rock Creek Sports Complex March 23. Dawson County Programs Coordinator Buffie Hamil explained that the event was designed as an exhibition of the spring sports programs and a way to introduce 62 of this season’s 63 park and rec teams to the community as a whole. “We have seen a tremendous amount of growth this year, especially in our instructional t-ball league which has grown from eight to 12 teams,” Hamil said. “This will be the only time all the teams are together this year and we just want everyone to have the experience.”
