Lafayette Little League teams are competing Wednesday night in their state championship games.

The 12U team is going for the state title against Eastbank; a win will earn the 12U team a spot at the Southwest Region Tournament in Waco, Texas, and they'll be one step closer to the World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The 11U team is taking on Eastbank Vegas, vying for its fourth state championship.

"Thank you so much to all the supporters," said head coach Hunter Buxton. "This tournament doesn't happen without them and as much work as we put in practicing they put way more into getting this tournament running, so thank you very much."

Both games began at 6 p.m.

The teams are playing at Broussard Sports Complex at St. Julien Park.
