Keith and Dionne Covington rejoice over birth of baby girl, Macie Abram-Grace
Welcome to the world, Macie Abram-Grace Covington! She arrived Monday morning, a little overdue, but perfectly healthy! She is the latest addition for Dionne and Keith Covington. Waiting there to welcome her with open arms were her big sisters, Mallary and Moriah! Congratulations to the Covington family!
Inadvertently, Diane and Leon Bolden, parents of Christie Bolden McClatchy, were left out of the column for having gone to the wedding of Christie and Chad. Needless to say, they were both there to witness the event!
Congratulations to the Holly Springs softball teams on sweeping the Post-Season Dizzy Dean County League Tournament! All three age groups, 8U, 10U and 12U pulled out victories, making them all first place champions! The tournament was held in Potts Camp and began last week, finishing up Monday night with the 8U girls and the 10U girls.
The 12U girls played one team all season, Byhalia, because there were not enough girls in any other community to have a team. Friday night, the girls showed up in Potts Camp to play their first game in the tournament at 7:45 p.m. Since the tournament was double elimination, both teams would have to go back to the park Saturday for possibly two games. Coaches, parents and players alike decided to battle it out with a doubleheader Friday night. Amidst the bugs flying and beetles biting, both teams stuck it out and played hard.
Byhalia put up a good fight, relying on catcher Matti Spencer and pitcher Makayla Kelley in the first game. Spencer had many throw-downs to second, but the Maniacs seemed to squeak past the catches. Kelley did a phenomenal job on the mound, zinging the ball right in there.
The Maniacs came through with their strong defense and big hitters. Mary Catherine Hutchens was slinging strikes left and right from the mound. Lexi Cupp and Ginny Strawn also pitched for the Maniacs. Catchers were swapped up between Hannah Pasco and Mary Catherine Hutchens, both of whom did a great job behind the plate! Two games later and creeping on midnight, the Marshall Maniacs took the victories.
When you play only one team all season long, it gets to be like you are playing family. You want to cheer on the other team as much as your own team. It was a fun season for parents, coaches and players. (To put your news in City Personals, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org; mail to City Personals, The South Reporter, P.O.
