Minden Angels win state championship, heading to Dixie World Series

TIOGA – The Minden Dixie Angel All-Stars dominated everyone who crossed their path inside the state of Louisiana.

Now, they will take their talents to the World Series.

The Angels defeated Ruston 11-0 in the State Championship to win the title and stake their claim as Louisiana’s best collection of Dixie nine and 10-year-old girls.

The girls made it look easy, going undefeated in district and state tournament play, outscoring their opponents 121 to 8.

In the state title game with Ruston, Minden was led offensively by Leyla Slaughter with a triple and double, followed by Baleigh Haulcy and McKenna Chreene with triples and Hallie Harmon with a double and single. Gabi Brown and Baylee Bonsall each singled to round out the offense.

Chreene was the winning pitcher, striking out 7 of 9 batters she faced.

The World Series begins Saturday, July 28, at Johnny Downs Sports Complex in Alexandria.
