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.
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!
