Lubbock Western All-Stars Arrive Home

The boys, coaches and parents of the Western All-Stars are all home Tuesday morning after a long trip to Williamsport.

Everyone arrived at the Preston Smith International Airport Monday night and it seemed for most of them they were happy to be home. Their return comes just one day after claiming a third place finish in the little league world series. They beat Curaco one to nothing on Sunday. 

Monday night a crowd of about 50 fans and family welcomed the Lubbock Western All-Stars home in champion style. And while most players and parents were glad to get home and back to a sense of normalcy, one teammate isn't looking forward to football this season after an unfortunate accident on the diamond.

Zane Ancell explains, "I'm doing alright. It's a broken leg, there's nothing you can do about it. But it's a pretty clean break, so it should be healed in four to six weeks, so it's not bad."

School has started for the team members and for some of them football practice will start soon, so they will continue to keep themselves pretty busy.

The Little League celebration will continue this Thursday night starting at 6 p.m. There will be a parade, beginning at United Market Street at 50th and Indiana. That's followed by a ceremony and food at City Bank at Slide and Parkway at 6:30 p.m.
