End of special journey

It's fitting La Porte's magical ride ended so close to the Magic Kingdom.

The Junior Pee Wee team was the first team in the 40-year history of La Porte Pop Warner to qualify for the National Championships, which features only eight teams in each division. Plus, it earned a terrific 11-3 record and won the regional championship at Kiwanis Field in La Porte.
