Dixie Boys tri­umph

The Covington News - - Opinion -

The Dixie Boys World Se­ries has ended and young men from around the south­east made their trips back home and back to school as they work hard on their fu­tures.

First of all, we need to con­grat­u­late the play­ers and coaches from our home­town New­ton team who showed plenty of heart and hus­tle in mak­ing a sur­pris­ing run to the fi­nals. They would lose to Ge­or­gia, but there was no shame in that, and the re­sult re­minded us of those gold-sil­ver medal fin­ishes we root for in Olympics for the U.S. team.

We would also like to thank the lo­cal mer­chants and or­ga­ni­za­tions and Main Street Cov­ing­ton for the red car­pet rolled out for our vis­i­tors.

Tommy Hai­ley and his re­cre­ation crew did a great job of or­ga­niz­ing and pre­par­ing for our vis­i­tors.

We also need to rec­og­nize the value of the free pub­lic­ity earned by hav­ing the World Se­ries here, as our cov­er­age of the se­ries was picked up by ev­ery team’s lo­cal news­pa­per or me­dia out­let. This type of pos­i­tive pub­lic­ity for and about New­ton County is a ma­jor win for all of us.
