The Banks County Lady Leopards 12U Fast pitch Softball State Champions traveled to Southaven, Mississippi, on July 11 through 13 for the Dizzy Dean World Series. The Banks County Lady Leopards placed second behind the Southaven Mississippi All-stars.
During the tournament, the Lady Leopards had four wins and two losses. The Lady Leopards lost to the Southaven team in the second game but fought back to face them again in the championship game. Each player received new Worth World Series helmets, a team bat and t shirt for making it to the championship game.
“The girls extremely hard and honestly are all champions in my opinion,” Coach Nick Denton said. “For the first time, the Banks County girls had an experience of a life time playing at a World Series. These are memories that can never be replaced.”
