SUNNY SEND-OFF ON A RAINY DAY - Red Devils Strike Out For Charleston, Citizens Shout'em On

(03/17/2004)

The basketball frenzy continued Tuesday around Calhoun with their pending first time ever appearance at a state tournament.

The rainy day didn't dampen the spirits of fans who turned out to give Calhoun High's Basketball team a great send-off.

The Red Devils were cheered by CHS students at Mount Zion before they boarded a chartered bus which detoured slightly to Grantsville to seek additional well-wishers.

Residents, young and old, came out in the damp weather with signs, shouts and arm-waving.

The tournament starts at 9:30 a.m. today at the Charleston Civic Center against Winfield.

Congratulations Devil's, we're all cheering for you.
