The Halifax County Dixie Youth Nationals were scheduled to play Nelson County Wednesday in the Dixie Youth Ozone state tournament semifinals in South Hill.

The winner gets Patrick County Thursday for the state title, with a berth in the Dixie Ozone World Series beginning Aug. 4 in Lumberton, N.C.

Then, the locals lost to Patrick County, 12-4, Sunday. They bounced back Monday to defeat Salem, 9-7.

On Tuesday night, Halifax downed Nelson County, 5-2.

Halifax has had good pitching, with six different options on the mound.

The pitchers include Joshua Gunn, Cameron Carson, Lukas Newton, Hunter Oliver, Tate Bowen and Greyson Parker.

HC National has also made good use of the home run ball. Cameron Carson has two homers in the tournament. Hunter Howerton, Christian Newton and Jamari Craighead also have cracked home runs.

HC National has had timely hitting, and the locals have enjoyed good defense. The locals had one game with multiple defensive breakdowns.

Three teams are left in the tournament with one loss after Monday’s action. A drawing was held to see which club got the bye, and that went to Patrick County.
