STATE CHAMPIONSHIP SPECIAL EDITION
Today’s Heat Beat picture page is a special edition commemorating the Newton County 13-year old Junior Dixie Boys state baseball champion team. The boys from Newton County went down to Columbus and won three games without a loss to bring the state championship back to Covington. We congratulate the players and coaches for bringing a state championship back to Newton County. Good luck at the World Series in Seneca!
A special thanks also goes out to George McDuffie for providing the photographs of this memorable occasion.
