Nolensville Little League team headed to LLWS in Williamsport
NOLENSVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - The baseball team from Nolensville, TN, celebrated on Tuesday night after taking the Southeast Regional with a win over Virginia, punching its ticket to the Little League World Series for the second straight year.
The team of 11 and 12-year-olds from Williamson County won the Southeast Regional Championship game against Virginia, 5-2, earning a spot in the LLWS.
While the team took care of business on the baseball field, they owe a portion of their success to the community, according to fundraiser organizer Mark Carter. Carter said over 120 donors had provided the team over $14,000 to help their families go to regionals and fill the stands at the Southeast Regionals game in Warner Robins, Georgia.
The team has now turned to the community for support to travel to the Little League World Series.
The LLWS takes place on August 17th in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. To help the boys reach their fundraising goal, click here.
