NEWTON BOYS OFF TO SEMIFINALS
Newton County is headed to the semifinals after defeating South Carolina Tuesday night. This is the furthest Newton County has gone in the Dixie World Series since becoming a host in ’93. The host team tallied 14 hits in a 15-0 win over Virginia and seven more hits in a 9-3 win over South Carolina in two elimination bracket game wins in the 2012 Dixie Boys World Series at City Pond Park. Newton will play either Alabama or Georgia in the semifinals at 10 a.m. today.
