The Hernando Youth League Dixie softball team (ponytail division) won the district tournament on June 17, 2018 and is headed to the state tournament to take place in Lake Placid beginning July 13, 2018.
Since winning the district final against West Pasco, the team has been raising funds to participate in the state tournament. The team is coached by Tony Laviano and Geoff Cummings.
You may have seen the girls and their coaches at the Red White and Brews event this past fourth of July, selling lemonade and sweet tea. They need to raise enough funds to pay for lodging meals and supplies for 12 girls for 4 days.
If you’d like to help the girls go to the state tournament, contact HYL softball at (352) 584-7035.
