Despite their resiliency and success on offense, the South Jefferson All-Stars coach-pitch softball team was defeated by Newport in consecutive elimination games on June 25 at the Field of Dreams in Dandridge, losing 9-5 in game one and 9-3 in game two.

Slow starts hindered the All-Stars in both of the games. Spurts of offensive efficiency kept South Jefferson in the fight, but they ultimately could not keep pace with Newport’s offensive production. Although the All-Stars came up short, the competitive environment created an excellent opportunity for growth among the young players, promising improvement in the years to come.
