Southeastern Baseball squad joins cleanup efforts in Central
CENTRAL - The Southeastern Louisiana University team and coaching staff joined the early recovery efforts in Central on Tuesday morning.
The Lions' head coach Matt Riser and assistant coaches made a stop at the house of an SLU alum’s parents and proceeded to work tirelessly to rip out all of the still wet carpet, sheetrock, insulation and other material that will need removing before renovation can begin.
“As an SLU Alum, and a former SLU athlete, this was extra special for me and my parents. I've always been proud to be a Lion, I am now prouder than I have ever been,” said Ken Pastorick. “Southeastern is a community, and we experienced that Tuesday.”
Other Southeastern student athletes joined the early cleanup efforts to help flood victims this week. Hammond saw its share of the flooding itself with heavy rains swelling rivers in Tangipahoa Parish.
