1413

The Haughton Rangers and Airline Vikings are off to strong starts in the month-long Dixie Majors season.

The Rangers were 6-0 entering the season’s third week Monday, and the Vikings were 4-1.

Airline’s lone loss came at the hands of Haughton 7-5 last week.

Haughton features three members of The Press-Tribune’s All-Parish team — pitcher Triston Carmack, outfielder Jonathan Plant and infielder Tyler Davis.

Other members of the team are Reid Wilson, Colby Holmes, Andrew Sewell, Austin Clemmens, Coltin McLain, Jeremiah Wilson, Kirkland Seals and Nick Heckman.

Clemmens pitched four solid innings in a Week 2 victory over Captain Shreve.
The Haughton Pre-Majors team is also 6-0.

The Airline Majors team didn’t play at all in Week 2 due to poor field conditions caused by rain.

Last week, Airline defeated Evangel 17-2 and Airline’s No. 2 team, which consists of sophomores and juniors.

Winning pitcher Hayden Waxley went 2-for-3 with an RBI and three stolen bases in the win over Evangel.

Connor Jones had two hits. Trey Daniel had four RBI and stole four bases. Daniel Gould scored four runs and had three stolen bases.

Austin Zickefoose scored five runs. He walked four times and was hit by a pitch.
All-Parish pitcher Kyle Backofen got the win against Airline No. 2. All-Parish outfielder Cameron Taylor went 3-for-3 with a triple.

Daniel had a double and two RBIs. Gould went 2-for-2 with a double and four RBIs. Waxley ended the game via the 10-run rule with a walkoff single.

Waxley had two hits in the loss to Haughton, and All-Parish infielder Peyton Davis had a double.
