(JASONVILLE) - Jasonville Mayor Roy Terrell, Sr. has proclaimed June 23-29 as Shakamak Laker Week in Jasonville after Chip Sweet and his Shakamak Lakers knocked off the Rockville Rox for the Class 1A baseball state title Saturday afternoon.
Decked in Columbia blue and white, hundreds of fans lined the streets Saturday night to welcome the team home.
When the team arrived, escorted by police and fire personnel, they unloaded the bus and walked up Main Street. The boys and coaches were high-fiving, hugging and shaking hands with their loyal fans.
The celebration continued at the Shakamak Junior/Senior High School gym with a pep session.
