Yesterday just before press time, we received word that the Wayne County Dixie Sweetees 5-6 Girls softball team had won the Dixie Youth World Series!!! Representing our state as “Team Tennessee,” the girls competed in the World Series in Eufaula, Alabama, and were undefeated in the series! They won first against Georgia by a score of 20-0, then went on to beat Louisiana 16-6 and Alabama 18-7. Team Tennessee faced off against Louisiana once again on Tuesday morning, and came out on top by a score of 7-6 to capture the title of World Series Champions!
Congratulations to this awesome group of young ladies and their dedicated coaches for giving it their all and bringing home the World Series Championship!
