The team carries a 4-0 record in tournament play from last week's District Tournament where they defeated Northwest, Rock Hill and Fairland by an average of over 11 runs.
"We had some outstanding hitting during districts and that is really what carried us to this point," Pirates coach Scott Green said.
The championship game in the District Tournament came against rival Portsmouth and Wheelersburg emphatically sealed their spot in the State Tournament in a one-sided 13-1 victory.
The coach is not ready to rest on the accomplishments of his team of 12 Wheelersburg sluggers just yet.
"Our goal is to get to Delaware for the World Series and as long as we continue to hit like we did in districts we should have a good chance," Green said.
It's not just any one batter that has provided the pop for the Pirates offense. Each hitter is as formidable as the next on the lineup card.
"We have a group of kids that play very well together and right now everyone is swinging the bat extremely well from the top of the lineup to the bottom," Green said.
It is not just the bats that are powering the Pirates toward Delaware. Their defense and pitching have been stellar allowing only one run per game.
"Our guys work together very well in the field and defense has been one of our biggest strengths so far," Green said. "If we continue to do what we have done previously in the field we should continue to have success."
With the talent and discipline of the teams the Pirates will face continuing to improve, Wheelersburg will continue to lean on what has gotten them to this point.
"We will keep playing one game at a time and keep our focus on hitting well and playing solid defense like we have already," Green said.
