The Mathews High School Blue Devils stand on the top rung of the state’s basketball ladder, scheduled to compete in the title game tonight in Richmond.
To attain these heights the Blue Devils proved that they possess, in addition to skill, an ample supply of tenacity and heart. They came from behind to win in both games at the state tournament, so far.
