The 8-10 year-old Tar Heel Little League team won the state championship by beating Myers Park Trinity, 12-3, at Southern Bank Stadium in Wilson. Since there is no regional play for this age group, this is as far as the team will go this season.

On Tuesday, the Tar Heel 10-12 Little League Team advanced to the state finals after rallying for three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat Myers Park Trinity, 11-10. The North State 9-11 year-olds won their state title with two wins over Myers Park Trinity on Tuesday.
