As a team, the Westport all stars are a perfect 19-0. Back in Westport, excitement continues to build.
To win it all, Westport must still win four more games. But no matter how it turns out, there will be a celebration in town.
This is the first time Westport is representing Connecticut in the championship, only California has won more titles.
