CHAPMANVILLE — Normally there is just an “Athlete of the Week.”
But this week its plural as the statebound Chapmanville Regional High School boys’ basketball team are the Logan Banner Athletes of the Week.
The Tigers (17-8) are red hot heading into Wednesday’s Class AA state tournament game against Poca as Chapmanville has won nine out of its last 10 ballgames.
For Chapmanville, it’s only the school’s second-ever state tournament berth in boys’ basketball.
The CRHS Tigers last played in the state tourney two years ago and lost to the Bluefield Beavers.
A big crowd from the Chapmanville/Harts areas is expected for Wednesday’s 5:30 p.m. state tourney game with the Dots at the Charleston Civic Center.
As the old sports saying goes, “Last one in town on Wednesday please turn out the lights.”
