Considering the uncertainty of the past 2½ months, several Acadiana-area sports complex officials were ecstatic with the first weekend of activity since the coronavirus shutdown.

“To be honest, it went better than we thought,” Tim Robichaux, director of the Youngsville Sports Complex, said of Memorial Day weekend. “We were a little fearful going into it.”
