CHS' Hill wins Dixie Youth Baseball Scholarship
CHS GRAD ALLISON HILL accepts a Dixie Youth Baseball scholarship from interim Kershaw County Recreation Department Director Shane Duncan (left) and Jay Bennett, a National Director for Dixie Youth Baseball Inc., at Camden High Schools Awards Night.
As a seventh-grade member of the Camden High softball program, Allison Hill probably found herself taking a peak at the adjoining field and wondering “what if?”A former Dixie Youth All-Star baseball player when she was 12 years old, the newly minted CHS graduate envisioned herself playing baseball for Denny Beckley’s baseball team.Due to a quirk in tryout regulations, seventh graders are allowed to try out and, if selected, play softball for the Lady Bulldogs. In order to try out for the Bulldogs’ baseball team, a junior high school student must wait until the eighth grade. Never one to sit around and wait, Hill jumped at the chance to play for the school’s softball team.
