Graceville Ozone All-Stars are STATE CHAMPIONS

The Graceville O-Zone All-Stars are Dixie Youth Ozone State Champion, crowned just a couple of weeks after the Dixie Youth Angels All-Stars won the State Championship.  The Graceville Ozone team went undefeated throughout the state tournament to make it a clean sweep, another repeat of the Dixie Angels All-Stars.  That’s where the similarities stop.  The Angels will be heading to Louisiana to compete in the World Series while the O-Zone Champions will be heading to Oxford, Alabama to compete for yet another title. Teams from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas will be in Oxford trying to upset the Florida Champions.  

Kelbee Woodham had the ball in his hands for the championship game and he did what he has done all year – competed and picked up the win.

Graceville jumped out to a 7-2 lead after one inning of play.  With one out, Kelbee Woodham helped himself out with a double and scored on a single by Zephaniah Brunson.  Neal Adams started where he left off the day before with an RBI single and scored on a double by Tyler Deon.  A walk to Connor Dillard put runners at first and second for Blaine Woodham’s RBI single.  Walks to James Gilmore, Drew Greenwood, and Riley Nelson plated the final runs of the inning before a groundout brought the inning to a close.  

In the second inning, Graceville plated two runs to go up 9-2.  Kelbee Woodham singled and scored on a crowd raising triple by Zephaniah Brunson.  With two outs, Connor Dillard singled to score one run, with a pair of walks to Blaine Woodham and Lamar Sowell plating the final run before the inning ended with a strikeout.  

Graceville picked up their final five runs in the third inning and coasted to their victory.  Kelbee Woodham singled and moved to second on a single by Zephaniah Brunson.  With a sacrifice by Neal Adams, both runners advanced to scoring position before Connor Dillard’s walk loaded the bases.  Blaine Woodham singled to score a pair of runs before Lamar Sowell lit up the crowd with a triple.  A ground out and flyout to centerfield ended the inning.  

A single by Kelbee Woodham and a walk to Zephaniah Brunson was the only offense in the fourth inning but Graceville was in control of the game.  Their defense shut down the Franklin County offense and Graceville walked away with the win and the State Championship.

Congratulations to the Graceville O-Zone team, coaches, parents and fans on their State Championship and good luck at the World Series from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County Times.
