Spring Hill girls' softball team in running for title

Spring Hill Dixie Softball League is competing in the District 6 Dixie League Tournament in New Port Richey this week. The hometown Spring Hill team bounced back to put themselves back into contention for the district title.

After dropping the opening game of the double-elimination tournament to West Pasco, the Angels Division (ages 9-10) squad came back with consecutive wins over Wesley Chapel (7-2) and Hernando-Brooksville (8-1).

Those victories were powered by the pitching of Sarah Brown and Ashley Logan. Brown tossed a one-hitter in the win over Wesley Chapel, while Logan threw a two-hit complete game against Hernando-Brooksville.

Manager Glenn Primavera likes his team's chances of reaching the district championship final in a rematch with West Pasco. Spring Hill's biggest asset is its defense at the infield corner positions with Celine Kordon at third base and Abbey Primavera at first.

Manager Primavera credits much of his team's success to the coaching staff of Melissa Varela and Rich Woodall.

LACROSSE HONORS: The West Florida Lacrosse League, the organization that oversees the Hernando Lacrosse Club, named its annual end-of-season All-Star Team.

Hernando had two members named as Honorable Mentions on the A Division team. Sean Byrne, a junior midfielder at Hernando Christian, and Ben Noury, a junior defenseman at Springstead, were both given the honor.

For Byrne, it was his second consecutive All-WFLL Honorable Mention and third time being named to the team overall. Noury, who wasn't named to the squad last season, made his second appearance on the list in three seasons.
