The Colquitt County Flea girls all-stars claimed the District III championship in Thomasville on Tuesday when the title game was rained out, but Crisp County decided not to travel again today and conceded.
Colquitt County won its first two tournament games by 12-0 over Grady County and 16-1 over Bainbridge.
The all-stars will travel to Dublin for the state tournament and will meet the tournament host at 6 p.m. on Thursday, July 11. Coach Craig Perryman said he expects the competition to be much tougher in Dublin.
“We outclassed everyone down here, but up there, there are some teams that will give us all we can handle,” said Perryman, who has guided the team to a 20-1 record this season.
The Colquitt County 12-and-under Full Throttle all-stars also were planning to play for a District championship in Thomasville on Tuesday, but their game, too, was rained out.
Full Throttle will return to Remington Park today to play for the championship. Its win over Grady County on Monday clinched a berth in the state tournament, which also will be held in Dublin.
Colquitt County’s 10-and-under girls all-stars also will play for a District championship today.

The championship game will be at 7:15 tonight at the Crisp County Youth Ball Complex.
