Albany will be hosting a ‘reverse parade’ for its senior softball and baseball players Thursday.
The senior softball and baseball players will park in the student parking lot, and anyone interested in participating will be allowed to drive around the parked cars. The event will take place from 8 p.m. to 8:20 p.m. The lights on the softball and baseball fields will be turned on during the event.
“I think it’s a small, little slice of trying to make up for what they’ve lost,” Albany girls basketball coach and athletic director Stacy Darouse said. “Nothing can make up for it, but anything that we can do to let them know that we’re thinking about them and that they’re important to us and we understand, or try to understand, and sympathize with what they’re going through. Anything that we can do to honor them is always a positive thing.”
