Myrtle Grove Middle softball field semi-finalist in Kellogg's contest

A student at Myrtle Grove Middle School is hoping to get the schools' softball field a makeover. Bailey Williams entered a contest through Kellogg's Frosted Flakes to revamp the field. Thousands of athletic fields were nominated from all across the country. Kellogg's selected Myrtle Grove's softball field as one of the 100 semi-finalists. Bailey said the field could use some work. “In the outfield there are holes all over the place and just recently I tripped at a recent practice because there's a big hole in the outfield,” she said. “The infield is always hard and it's really hard for my coach to work the sand for it to become soft and manageable.” If you would like to vote for the Myrtle Grove Middle School softball field, go to, click on Help Rebuild America’s Playing Fields, then click Wilmington on the map.
