This is what girl power looks like in Little League uniforms.

The Ozone Howard Little League Major Girls District Team ran onto the field clutching their championship banner after shutting out Staten Island’s Snug Harbor Team 5-0 on July 3.

The Queens team clinched the best-of-three, sectional-title series by winning two straight games against the previously undefeated Staten Island team.

Next stop is the New York State Championship in upstate Fishkill, starting July 10.

This is the first step for Ozone Howard on its way to the Little League Softball World Series — the national championship of girls softball — in Portland, Ore. in August.

Good luck, ladies!
