League had been in jeopardy of shutting down

The new president of the Havelock Girls Babe Ruth Softball League has a goal.

"I want to see a league where each division has at least four teams in it," said Kelly Titus.

Titus and her husband Ryan had been coaching their oldest daughter’s 10-and-under team when she found out that the league was in trouble. The city had stepped in to run the league for the season because it didn’t have an active board.

"We both coached. It’s something that we both shared an interest in and I think both my husband and I are very athletic and know a lot about the sport to be able to teach others in the league," Titus said.

Dave Smith, director of the Havelock Parks and Recreation Department, said Titus stepped up to run the league.

"It’s been sort of a joint venture this year with us helping with the purchase of things for them and then Kelly taking the lead on a lot of the admin work," Smith said.

Without Titus taking the lead, the league was in jeopardy of possibly shutting down or moving to Newport, something Smith didn’t want to see happen.
