Two Paxton DixieYouth League teams advance to play for state championships by Reid Tucker Two more Dixie Youth League Distric 2 tour- naments finished up on Wednesday, June 22, as South Walton felled its cross-county rival Paxton 5-4 after six intense innings of play to win the district mi- nor league crown, while Pax- ton's softball team claimed "victory over Freeport by an 8:7 margm. In the minor league game, undefeated South Walton led 5-3 through the sixth inning, but Paxton's Con- nor Varnum made his way around the bags on a hit to deep right field to make it a one-run game. While Blaine Johnston singled, South Walton got two outs in the meantime, so when Zach Williams went down swing- ing that put the game in the books. Both South Walton and Paxton will advance to the state tournament to be held July 16 in Avon Park. The softball final saw Paxton, which needed just one more victory to take the District 2 title, climb back from the brink of defeat. A determined Freeport club amassed a 7-4 lead by the fourth inoing. An inning lat- er the momentum began to shift in Paxton's favor as two RBIs and a stem for home plate tied the game. Paxton scored another run with two outs on the board to take the go ahead run in the bottom of the inning, wrapping up the win. Unlike the baseball divisions, only the district winner advances in softball, with Paxton set to play for the state championship in Carrabelle on July 8.
