Westport Boys Win Little League State Title; Girls To Follow On Tuesday?

Westport’s 12-year-old Little League all-stars are one step closer to Williamsport.

The boys captured their town’s 1st-ever state championship today, in Southington. Westport beat Coginchaug 9-1, sweeping the best-of-3 series. Yesterday, they won 8-2.

Westport Little LeagueThe winners represent Connecticut at the New England regional tournament. It’s set for Bristol — home of ESPN — starting this Friday (August 2).

The winner of that tournament heads to the Little League World Series in Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, Westport’s 10-11 softball girls play in the state tournament, Tuesday in Newington. They need 1 more victory in 2 games to add a 2nd state championship to the Westport Little League trophy case.

Good luck to both teams!

    Thanks Dan! The girls beat Enfield 14-7 today and will play for the Championship Tuesday at 5:30pm if the weather holds tomorrow (losers bracket) and Tuesday. The boys were terrific today (and yesterday) and we’re looking for the Exacta tomorrow.
