Charlotte County Defeats Blacksburg in State Semi-Final
Charlotte County rallied for 4 runs in the 5th inning of a rain suspended game to beat Blacksburg 5-1. Blacksburg clearly had the momentum Tuesday night but rain forced the postponement of the game. Blacksburg's starting pitcher, Adam Linkous, threw 3 near perfect innings on Tuesday and was in complete control, but was unable to regain the same velocity and control after the forced layoff.
With Blacksburg's performance in the 2008 AAA State Tournament, the franchise is currently the second winningest franchise in Virginia Dixie Youth history. Halifax is first with 15 wins, with both Madison Heights and Blacksburg tied with 11. Considering Blacksburg's very short tenure in DYB of just eight years, this is quite an impressive accomplishment.
Congratulations to the Blacksburg players for the fine showing in the State Tournament! They have made the Town of Blacksburg very proud.
