Headland Dixie Youth Allstars to go to World Series
The City of Headland honored our Dixie 12U Allstars with a send off fit for champions. The team and coaches rode into the Square in Downtown Headland on top of a fire engine complete with lights and sirens. The local champions were greeted by family, friends, and neighbors on July 31, 2018 in celebration of their victory.
Mayor Ray Marler addressed the crowd and the team before honoring each team member and coach with a City of Headland Medal. "We thank you very much for representing our city and bringing back this trophy as the 2018 State Champions," Mayor Marler told the team. In addition to the hard work these talented athletes put in, the city appreciates the coaches and parents for their dedication.
