Sunday, September 1, 2002

PLANT CITY, Fla. -- The Northwest Tennessee Spirits traveling softball team completed their season by winning third place in the ASA 18 and under World Series Aug. 1-4 at Plant City, Fla.

The Spirits are made up of some local girls from Southeast Missouri. Abby Sexton of Sikeston and Morgan Hodges of Matthews both play for the team. Many businesses gave money to make the trip possible.

"We would like to thank those businesses," said Sexton.

"Without their help, this trip would not have been possible."

Both played for New Madrid County Central's softball team and will play for Dyersburg State this fall.
