Webber Twp Advances to State Title Game


By WSIL Sports

 PEORIA-- It's been a record-setting season for Webber Township's baseball team in reaching the state tournament.  The Trojans continued their historic postseason, advancing to the school's first 1A baseball state title game, with an extra inning win over New Athens 5 to 4.

The Trojans trailed the Yellowjackets for most of the game until tying it up at four in the seventh, to force extra innings.  Christian Bush drove in the game-winning hit in the tenth, and pitcher Jordan Wheeler threw more than 170 pitches in the 10-inning complete game win.

Webber Twp advances to play Illinois Lutheran at 11:30 Saturday in the 1A Baseball State Championship game.
