Forty-eight Nottoway County girls were named softball All-Stars during the Nottoway Youth Recreation Association’s closing ceremonies held Saturday at Wrigglesworth Sports Complex in Blackstone.
Nottoway — now in its second year of the 2021 merger of the former Blackstone and Crewe-Burkeville Youth Recreation Associations, will host the District One Angels, Ponytails, and Belles softball All-Star tournaments — starting Friday, June 24th at Wrigglesworth. This year’s District Tournament for Darlings will be held starting June 17th in Lawrenceville.
Last year’s Nottoway Angels team won the District and State championships and then went 2-2 in the Dixie Girls World Series held in Prince George. That 2021 squad went a combined 10-3 in postseason play.
