Whereas, the South Carolina House of Representatives is pleased to learn that the members of the Dutch Fork High School baseball team of Richland County took top honors at the state championship on Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Columbia Fireflies' Segra Park in Columbia; and

Whereas, to the cheers of their exuberant fans, the Dutch Fork Silver Foxes defeated the Blythewood Bengals 2-1 to win the program's first state championship title; and

Whereas, proud of these fine student athletes, the South Carolina House of Representatives appreciates the recognition the Dutch Fork High School baseball players have brought to their school and community, and the members look to hear of many more victories for the school in coming seasons. Now, therefore,
