Dixie league ball stepped up tempo this past week with 35 games being played from May 17-23. The bats were still in full swing with 27 homeruns recorded.

Players recording a homerun: Bailey Sexton, Jesse Harp, TJ Finklea, Kullen Huggins, Rylan Beck, Izi B Foster, Sadarion Feagin, Jason McConico, Braxton Hartley, Allie Newton, Sarah Skipper, Alyssa Cauthen, Chole Chun, Natalie Skipper, Brielle Cook, Anna Thomas, Brook Tolson, Kadience Davis, Brooklyn Wright, Griffin Gaston, and Kemper Waters.

The big swingers who recorded two homeruns were Bailey Sexton, TJ Finklea, Sadarion Feagin, Jason McConico, Allie Newton, and Alyssa Cauthen.

The Dixie Debs softball league, which is ages 13-18, began play on May 17 and the Whiddon sisters Gracie and Rachel proved to be the hottest pitchers of all leagues. Gracie had two games where she recorded nine strikeouts per game. Her sister Rachel struck out 11 in one game.

Gracie and Rachel play for Crossfire. They both were a big part in taking the Highland Home varsity girls softball team to the state playoffs.
