The rains didn’t dampen the spirits or diminish the play of a determined group of the Graceville Angels Monday night in Wewahitchka as they put together back-to-back wins in soaking wet uniforms to bring home the District Championship!  

It wasn’t the prettiest of wins with rain throughout most of the game, but it mattered not to a determined group of Angels because they wanted all the marbles. That is exactly what they got!  Graceville scored three runs in the first inning, third, and fifth innings with four crossing the plate in the fourth, outscoring their opponent Wewa 13-10.  

Hits were not as plentiful as the free passes with the Graceville Angels picking up eight hits to 15 walks, and two hit batters in route to their victory.

Leading the team in hits was Haley Williams who picked up two singles and added two walks, followed by Jaz Cruz with two walks and one hit.  On board with a walk, a hit by pitch, and a hit was Brianna Adams, with Emily Maddox picking up two free passes on the night.  Vanessa Rollins had a walk and an extra base hit, with Kylie Carter picking up a walk, a hit, and taking one for the team.  Mia Fountain and Laura Laycox both had a hit, while Samaiyah Wilson, Toni Wesley and Audrey Hamilton all picked up two walks each.  

After drying out from last night’s double header, the Graceville Angels will be back on the practice field getting ready for the State Tournament.  State will be held in Bristol this year starting July 7 and concluding July 11.  The team will be accepting donations to help offset the cost of daily travel to and from the ballpark, eats, and other expenses.  You may contact any team member or the City of Graceville.  

Congratulations to the Graceville Angels on their District Championship from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County Times.
