The Allstars from the Debs and Belles, a combined girls’ softball league for ages 13-19, will compete in a warm-up tournament on June 24 in Troy. This will help prepare the team for the state tournament in Enterprise beginning July 9.

The Angels lost to Troy 4-2 in their first game Thursday and then beat Geneva 15-3, Friday night. They were scheduled to play Wicksburg but Tropical Storm Claudette put everyone on hold.
The Ponytails lost 11-1 to Crenshaw on Thursday. Weather cancelled their second game against Ariton.
