Swinging into the New Year – Dalton 7th grader plays ball in Florida


Dalton seventh-grade student Kenna Doty was invited to Florida over winter break to participate in the New Year’s Softball Fest at Panama City Beach.

As a result of her play this past July at All American Games in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, Doty was chosen by the Elite Softball organization to participate in the tournament with other girls from Texas, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Maine and Ohio in the 14u age group facing girls up to two years older than her. She held her own and played very well, said her mom, Amber Doty, who also served as a coach.

After only one practice, her team of nine girls came in third place out of 18 teams and formed friendships right away.

At the plate, she batted .417 for the week and had no strikeouts as well. Her batting average was a team-leading batting average.
