The Wewahitchka 8-and-under girls softball team went undefeated in winning the district championship two weeks ago at the Honeyville Sports Complex in Wewahitchka .

After a bye June 14, Wewa downed Liberty County and Port St. Joe June 15. The following day, Wewa defeated Sneads, who had ousted Blountstown from the losers bracket. On June 17, Wewa defeated Port St. Joe to win the championship.

Wewahitchka, coached by head coach Travis Burge and assistants Jarvis Sherfield, Cody Johnson and Stephanie Brinkmeier, now heads to the state tournament beginning Friday in Marianna.
