Gilmour Swing for Autism


rescheduled again for a


fourth time


The Gilmour Academy Swing for a Solution Varsity and JV softball games against Geneva Monday was cancelled for the third time.


The Lancers are going to make one last effort at getting them in on Wednesday, May 25 at Gilmour at 4 p.m.


Who knows, maybe this year the saying is "fourth time's the charm!"


“We are hopeful the weather will cooperate on Wednesday, but if not, we are not willing to give up on this charity event and are working on Game Plan B,” said assistant coach Kristy Booher. “We might utilize the Field House.  Although those conditions may not be the most optimal, at least it will give the players one last time to play. And maybe, just maybe, we'll have a kickball game instead.


“We hope the weather cooperates and anyone supportive of the cause to better treat and cure autism could make it out to Gilmour on Wednesday for this wonderful charity event.
