Spring Hill Dixie League names All-Star teams

Spring Hill Dixie League, based out of Anderson Snow Park, wrapped up its regular season last week and has named its All-Star teams for the district tournaments.

Only one division played an intraleague All-Star battle rather than advancing a squad to tournament play. The Junior Rookies division (5- to 6-year-olds) played at Anderson Snow last week. The Blue All-Stars, led by Chris Carlson, defeated the Red All-Stars, coached by Chad Weissman, 15-5.

The Minors division (ages 8-10) District 6 tournament begins Saturday in Ridge Manor, and Spring Hill Dixie will send two teams.

The American team is made up of Daniel Campbell, Nick Nguyen, Tyler Adler, Trevor Adler, Mickey Dono, Dakota Blevens, Robert Bunyon, Joseph Harris, Jarrod Nesbitt, Zack Gates, Kobe Simon and Devin Davis. The manager is Roger Gates. The National team is made up of Luke Laferty, Dominic Marrone, Bodhi Sbashnig, Logan Ross, Jaikob Schad, Stephen Augello, Brandon Frangione, Nick Caldarelli, Rick Warren, Jeycris De La Rosa, Cameron Sereda and Matt Voda. That squad's manger is Shawn Laferty.

Last season, Spring Hill Dixie was able to advance its Triple-A Majors club to the Dixie World Series in Georgia. This season's Dixie World Series is set to take place at five sites. All pre-Majors divisions will meet in Ozark, Ala. Majors divisions will compete in North Charleston, S.C. Enterprise, Ala., will host the Junior Dixie event. Seneca, S.C., will host the top divisions of the Dixie Series, and all softball divisions will meet in Sumter, S.C.

BASEBALL: After the Rookie Division All-Star Tournament wrapped up last week, the other divisions of All-Star teams have been named for West Hernando Little League of Spring Hill.

The Majors division (11- to 12-year-olds) includes Aaron Perez, Dalton Burm, Tyler Zarcone, Kyle Cotiletta, Scott Swarrow, Dakota Middleton, Marc Swarrow, Dmitri Klein, David Vo, Levi O'Brien, James Tumbarello, Nathaniel Leon and William Orton. This squad is headed up by manager Stacy Swarrow.

In the Juniors division (ages 13-14), West Hernando will bring the following players to the District 15 tournament: Vincent Cervino, Trenten Wyzykowski, Kody Stein, Ryan Kelly, Joe Barile, John Teague, Mike Case, Robert Rittenberry, David Peters, Paul Tomasi, Kyle Medina, Michael Miara and Nicholas Cuccinello. The manger is Jack Churay.
