The Wellsboro Junior Little League team defeated Sayre in a best-of-three series for the District 15 Championship. The teams started the series Saturday in Sayre but the rain suspended play in the top of the third inning.

Wellsboro made a second trip to Sayre on Sunday to conclude the first game of the series, winning 9-1. Wellsboro then hosted Sayre on Monday night and secures a 12-2 win to claim the championship. Wellsboro now advances to the PA Section III tournament hosted by District 12 in Williamsport.
