COLUMBIA — About half a dozen high school girls stood screaming and waving signs Sunday at the intersection of Stadium and Forum boulevards.
The girls dedicated their enthusiasm to making some money for their softball team at Battle High School.

While half of the girls waved bright neon signs at the intersection that read “Honk 4 Support” and “Battle car wash,” the other half worked in the parking lot of Dairy Queen — soaping, scrubbing and spraying cars. The team washed 18 to 20 cars, Paxton Jobe, 16, said.
"We’ve been here all day," Evelyn Waite, 15, said.
The Battle softball team's season runs from August to October.
