    The Dixie Chixx 14U softball team completed a magical two-week run that earned them a state championship and cumulated with a national championship.

    The team defeated Crete Phoenix 4-0 in the USSSA National Championship Great Lakes on July 24, in Columbus, Ind.

    The team only won one pool game at the national championships that helped to determine where they would land in the brackets. But once the team reached the double elimination bracket play, it swept all four games in route to the championship.

  • Fishin’ and lovin’ every day

    The Two Rivers Bass Tournament participants saw the highs and lows of bass fishing during the competition July 16-17.

    Saturday’s fishing conditions were the best of the tournament, as 90 of the 146 fish were weighed the first day. However, Sunday was almost the other extreme as the day started with one-hour fog delay and extremely hot and humid conditions. The weather made fishing tough on the anglers, and they found the fish non-responsive, as 18 of the 39 teams recorded no fish caught.
