For the 2nd straight year, the Fayetteville SwampDogs have won the Fayetteville Observer's Reader's Choice Award for "Best Local Sports Team". This marked the 18th summer of fun for the SwampDogs and they credit the win of these back to back awards to their tremendous fans. The awards now in their 24th year, which were announced last Thurday at the Embassy Suites, were the results of thousands of votes from the community. Voting was during the first 2 weeks in July. Everyone from the SwampDogs organization would like to thank the fans and are already planning their 19th summer of fun, starting next May!
