WILLIAMSON – As part of its initiative to expand recreational opportunities throughout the county, the Mingo County Commission recently sponsored a corn hole tournament at the former Williamson High School gymnasium.
Twelve teams from around the Tug Valley competed for the top prize of $200. Columbus and Miranda Cisco came in first place. Scott Hurst and Joe Bucci came in second place and won $100; Mike Bucci and Kevhen Adkins came in third place and took home $50 and J.J. Warren and G. Gregory came in fourth, winning a $25 prize.
Prizes were provided by Smith Law Offices of Williamson.
Tournaments such as this are just one way the county commission is trying to make use of the former WHS facilities. Other tournaments including volleyball and various basketball competitions are planned in the coming months.
“We’d like to do a corn hole tournament at least once a month,” said Commission President Greg “Hootie” Smith. “We are always looking for recreational opportunities we can offer to our local residents and we have a great place to hold them with the former high school facilities.”
