Fighting Blues clinch state championship

By Sutton Travis

Making Buena Vista sports history, the Parry McCluer Blues brought home the town’s first-ever state basketball championship on March 9. Coach Adam Gilbert guided the girls’ team to a 34-29 victory over top-seeded George Wythe High School in the Virginia High School League1A championship. School officials plan to host a banquet honoring the team in late April, where attendees will watch a recording of the state game. Gilbert will give the players their state championship rings at the banquet.
