Local Roundup: Around the Horn wins state title

The Around the Horn 13AAA baseball team poses with its trophies after winning the USSSA Southeast State Championship at Mill Creek Park.

    Youth travel baseball team Around the Horn 13AAA, won the USSSA Southeast State Championship held at Mill Creek Regional Park last week. 
    “It was great to see them win this title,” team coordinator Dadrian Cosby said. “This team won the 12u Championship last year and it’s exciting to come back and defend the title.” 
    On July 14 Around the Horn  13AAA and  12AAA teams will travel to Gulf Shores, Alabama to compete in the USSSA World Series.
    Dalton Hoenig, a member of the Around the Horn 13AAA team, has been selected to play in the USSSA All American Showcase. The United States has been divided into eight different regions and Hoenig will be a member of the Atlantic Regional Team.
    The team is made up of players from Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina.
    The All-American Games will be played in Kissimmee, Fla., July 31 through Aug. 3.
    “This is a huge accomplishment for Dalton, and I know he will represent Georgia and Around the Horn well,” Cosby said.
    The Around the Horn travel teams are coordinated by the Statesboro-Bulloch County Parks and Recreation Department. The teams are designed to offer the youth in the area the opportunity for more competitive play, in addition to regular recreation league play in the spring.
    Tryouts for the baseball teams are coming up Aug. 16.
    Around the Horn also offers softball teams as well for 12 and under, and 14 and under  leagues, and those tryouts will be held on Aug. 9.
    For more information on the Around the Horn teams, call (912) 764-5637.

Kuhfeld hired to coach GSU women
    Georgia Southern Director of Golf Larry Mays announced Wednesday that he has named Emily Kuhfeld as the Eagles first-ever women’s golf coach.
    Kuhfeld comes to Statesboro from Texas Tech, where she spent the last three campaigns as an assistant coach for JoJo Robertson, helping guide Tech to some of its most successful seasons in program history.
    The Georgia Southern women’s golf team will begin competition in the 2015-16 season as members of the Sun Belt Conference.
    The program will have six full scholarships, the full complement allowed by the NCAA, and will share the Bennett-Ramsey Golf Center with the men’s program after renovations have been completed.
