The Lexington Independent Minors, a group of 9- and 10-year-olds, are following in the footsteps of the Gamecocks. The kids won the AAA Dixie Youth World Series in Gonzales, Louisiana.

They claimed the championship Thursday by defeating Louisiana. The team will arrive back in the Midlands on Friday.
