Debs have smashing trip, knocked out of softball World Series early

SoVaNow.com / August 03, 2017
The Virginia state Dixie Belles all-stars have been eliminated from World Series action, but the local players from Halifax County had a smashing trip, nonetheless.

Virginia traveled to Sumter, S.C. for the World, but the locals were eliminated after two losses. The all-stars still got a very good side trip to Carowinds after the softball ended.

The local Belles played the host team and lost 10-0 on Saturday in five innings. Gracie Wagstaff and Hayley Beadles pitched. Lynia Reed had the lone hit in the game.

Halifax could not get its offense in gear. The defense also struggled in the opener.

On Sunday, Alabama eliminated Virginia, 16-3, in six innings. Kristina Morton, Wagstaff and Savannah Farrar handled the pitching.

Farrar had two hits, while Wagstaff and Jessica Balducci also had one hit. Mollie Nunn also had a hit.

The Virginia all-stars had a tough outing in the Series.
