Beckley, WV (WOAY) – Greater Beckley Christian boys basketball endured a tough season in 2015-16. One year later, the Crusaders find themselves 32 minutes from a trip to Charleston.
They will host Valley Thursday evening in a Class A Region 3 co-final, with the winner advancing to the state tournament.
Most of the Crusaders’ squad is made up of freshmen and sophomores, who were not a part of the 2015 team that won a regional at Valley and progressed to the state semifinals.
Head coach Brian Helton says this team has been hungry to prove themselves throughout the year, as they won tough sectional games last week against Mount View and Summers County. They will enter Thursday having won their last three games.
