GRAY, GA -- Another deep summer of softball is in store for the Jones County Sweethearts.

For the fourth straight summer, the county's 6U all-star team travel to Louisiana at the end of the month for the Dixie Youth Softball World Series. With another trip to the championship bracket in the cards for the Sweethearts, the expectations grow.

"Well believe it or not I felt a little pressure when we won the league," said Head Coach Michael Davis. "This is like the third or fourth year that we get to go to the World Series so there's a little bit of pressure."

This year Jones County is sending both the 6U and 10U all-stars to the World Series. While enjoying the game is the focus, victory is still on the team's mind.

"You want to represent your home park and make everybody proud," Davis said. "The girls having a good time is the main thing but we go out there to win."
