Papel Named Parade Grand Marshal

Papel Named Parade Grand Marshal

--Special to The Dodge County News
As floats, fire engines, football players, and other fired up Indians fans line Oak Street on Friday for the 2011 Homecoming Parade, the man people will see first will be one who has initiated many firsts in Dodge County and for whom the honor of Grand Marshal is well deserved.

Trifonio Infante (T.I.) Papel, the Grand Marshal of the 2011 Dodge County Homecoming Parade, was born in Palapa, Northern Samar in the Philippines in 1942, but for years he has called Dodge County home and has served it as such.

Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Last year, Bleckley and Southeast Bulloch met in the semifinals of the Region 3-AA playoffs.  BCHS run-ruled the Lady Jackets in both games.  A much tougher SEB team played BC Wednesday for the Region 3-AA championship.  But with tough defense and clutch hitting, the Lady Royals swept their way to a region title.

Marlee Bryan's third-inning single tied things in game one.  In the fourth, SEB had two on with no out.  After a sac bunt moved runners into scoring position, Bryan struck out the next two batters, ending the threat.  A double play in the fifth helped quell a bases loaded, no outs jam.  Bleckley would be unable to capitalize on a two on, two out, opportunity in their half of the fifth.
