Greenville North State Little League ready for championship game

GREENVILLE N.C. (WNCT) – It’s championship day at the Little League Southeast Regional in Warner Robins, Ga. Greenville North State takes on Peachtree City, Georgia in the title game at 3pm. The winner punches their ticket to Williamsport.

4 straight wins have gotten this team to the championship game.

If they win today, they’ll earn a spot in the Little League World Series.

The support from the community has been strong here in the East. People are packing sports restaurants around the area to follow the team’s journey.

One parent 9 On Your Side spoke to said the parents are more nervous than the kids.

“You know, win or lose, I’m not even sure they realize what they’re really going to accomplish,” said David Vaughn. David’s son Michael Vaughn is one of the North State coaches.

David added the kids love hearing their names on ESPN and joke about the things that they say. He also says the morale of the team couldn’t be better.

The championship game is at 3pm today on ESPN.

If you can’t watch the game, catch the highlights with 9 on your side at 5 and 6.
