Minden takes third at Dixie World Series

By Josh Beavers

The storybook run has come to an end as our Minden SweeTees lost last night in the Dixie World Series.

The team took third place in the tournament but couldn’t get past a tough Tennessee state champion team. Final score from Monday’s elimination game: Tennessee 16 – SweeTees 15.

This was the second time in as many games the Tennessee team defeated Minden, but the local girls went down to the final swing as they fought back and looked to move on in the tournament.

The 6u Sweetees X-play won 11-7 against Ward10 in their first game.

Logan Hollingsworth is the head coach. Assistant coaches are Tyler Lewis, Laura Perryman and Paige Chanler.
