Summary:

Frontenac Youth Little League enjoyed their first visit to the Midwest Region tournament so much, they made sure to do it again.

Frontenac swept through five games against Kanas opponents in the 2015 international tournament, and in the process won the league's second consecutive state championship with a 12-2 win over Riverton Area Little League.

Frontenac returned four players from a team that provided one of Kansas' best showing in recent years at the Midwest Region tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana. The team immediately began working their way back to Indianapolis, sweeping past Cherokee Community Little League, 14-0 and 16-0 in area tournament competition.

In the state finals, Frontenac first stopped Riverton Area, 14-1 in five innings, then stymied homestanding Baxter Springs Little League, 17-0. The second of these wins lifted Frontenac into the Kansas championship game for the fourth time in six years.

Frontenac closed out the tournament with their second win over Riverton Area.

"Last year, I took the team to the regionals, and we were probably two pitchers short," noted Frontenac manager Dan Raio. "(This year) I probably have twelve pitchers who can go one or two innings. That's really big. I know I can take anybody out from the field and put them on the mound and they can get an out or two if I need it."

Frontenac dropped a pair of games at the region tournament, first falling 11-3 to Grandview Little League (Des Moines, Iowa) in an opening round encounter, and then dropping an 11-3 decision to Webb City (Missouri) Little League. Webb City's victory was the first of four straight wins in the tournament following an opening round loss, as the Missouri champions went on to win the tournament and advance to the Little League World Series.
