The Altavista YMCA Dixie Darlings All-Stars traveled to Halifax on June 21 and returned home as Virginia Dixie Softball District 7 Darlings Champions.
After enduring a challenging 2018 season which saw the team go winless, the Darlings returned in 2019 to go 8-6-1 on the regular season with wins over Brookneal, Rustburg and Charlotte Courthouse.
In their first game of the District 7 Dixie Championship Tournament, the Altavista Darlings All-Stars defeated the Brookneal Darlings All-Stars 11-1. They then defeated the Halifax Darlings All-Stars 11-6 on Saturday.
After the result of Sunday's matchup between Halifax and Brookneal, Altavista would face the Halifax All-Stars again on Monday for a winner take all rematch. The Altavista Darlings would defeat Halifax 8-5 after a three run, two out rally in the top of the fifth inning to seal the victory.
The Altavista Darlings All-Star team will next travel to Charlotte Courthouse on July 12 for the Virginia Dixie Softball Darlings State Tournament.
