Being down late in the game never discouraged the Gators, but they continued to play and hit hard and eventually brought home the well-deserved district title.

“Its awesome when you win the district title and that was one of our goals this year,” head coach Brian Ellis said. “I told them from the beginning to make the routine plays and don’t give up the big innings,” he added.

Now that they have clinched the district title, the Missy Gators will soon be preparing for the playoffs but tonight they are celebrating their great achievements.
