Magee won the State Dixie Youth eight-year-old baseball tournament which was held over the weekend at Northside Park.

Twelve teams competed in the tournament. Friday night’s games were rained out so tournament officials doubled up and played two days of games on Saturday. The finals were held Sunday. Magee beat Pike County 8-2. Philadelphia finished third, losing 7-6 to Pike County in an elimination game.

A 12-year-old District Dixie Youth tournament was held the weekend of June 29 and 30. Kosciusko defeated Yazoo City 15-0 to win the district. Philadelphia placed third, losing to Kosciusko in an elimination game.

“That wraps us up for the summer,” said Cody Bryan of the Parks Department. “We brought in two good crowds. The Dixie Youth state director bragged on our facilities.”
