CHAPMANVILLE — After last week’s sectional tournament heroics Chapmanville Regional High School’s Kyle Browning has been named as the Logan Banner Athlete of the Week this week.
Browning, a sophomore guard, grabbed a rebound after a miss by Scott’s Tanner Bell and was fouled with 0.1 seconds left and the game tied at 36.
Browning calmly sank both free throws, lifting the Tigers to the dramatic 38-36 win and the Class AA sectional championship over the Skyhawks in a game that was played at Logan’s Willie Akers Arena.
Browning led Chapmanville in the game with 16 points.
Chapmanville (16-8), winners of nine out of its last 10 games moved to within one win of the state tournament. The Tigers are scheduled to host Sissonville on Thursday night in the Class AA regional co-finals for the right to play in Charleston for the second time in three years.
