CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Hedgesville's youth brigade is still marching in the Class AAA state tournament.
Behind Shawn Moats' 17 points and Brady Catlett's 13 points and 12 rebounds, Hedgesville beat Preston, 69-50, in a quarterfinal Thursday.
Hedgesville (13-12), with a roster of five sophomores and four juniors, won for the 11th time in 12 games by outrebounding Preston, 43-37, outscoring it 20-10 from the line and outshooting it 44.9 percent to 30 percent.
``Our kids stay in their element,'' said coach Charlie Scott. ``Some of them are good rebounders, some of them are good shooters, some are good defensive players.''
