The celebration was on, as soon as Kamyria Woody-Giggetts gloved the final out in Monday’s 13-11 victory over Timberlake by the Halifax American Darlings in state tournament action in the Lynchburg.

Woody-Giggetts also caught the first out of the inning in the seventh.

Halifax American nailed down the state title and the local all-stars will be competing in the Dixie Softball Darlings World Series in Alexandria, La., beginning Aug. 2.

The local all-stars had to get two wins over host Timberlake to get to the World Series.

HA scored eight runs in the first inning, followed by single runs in the second, third and fourth, and two runs in the fifth.

The American all-stars clicked offensively, finishing with seven hits in the first inning alone. Trinity Martin and Madison Barnes doubled, and Kylie Satterfield and Lynia Reed homered in the big inning.

Savi Bailey and Woody-Giggetts each singled to spark the second inning. Barnes tripled and scored in the third, and Reed launched a solo homer in the fourth.

Barnes then followed with a decisive two-run homer in the fifth, scoring Trinity Martin, who had singled.

Halifax American finished with 14 hits.
