Way to go girls. I knew you could do all along, great effort by all. You now join a "very elite" group of softball players in Halifax Co. Just make sure that your plaque is added to those already displayed at the flag stand at Mary Bethune where it will be on display for everyone to see forever.
Thanks again for representing Halifax County so well,
Doug Blanks
