Burgaw Ponytails honored for Dixie World Series win


BURGAW, NC (WWAY) -- A Pender County softball team is honored for their Dixie Youth World Series title Monday night in Burgaw.

The Burgaw Ponytails captured the Dixie Youth World Series title last week in Louisiana. Burgaw beat Florida 2-1 in the championship game.

The team was runner up in last year's world series and the girls say this year's win was extra sweet.

“It was just really exciting and it made me so happy to know that we finally won a World Series,” said Hayley Grizzle, who plays on the Ponytails.

“It was a huge accomplishment for all of the Dixie Youth and our team as well,” said Abigail Blanchard, who also plays on the Ponytails.

The Burgaw Dixie Belles finished third out of eleven teams at their World Series in South Hill, Virginia. The Burgaw Belles received The Sportsmanship Trophy of the tournament.
