Commission passes resolution honoring State Champion Beavers

PRINCETON (WVVA) - The Bluefield Beavers championship basketball team has been officially recognized by Mercer County.

Beaver fans are still riding high off the second straight AA championship victory by the Bluefield high school boys basketball team last month in Charleston.

At Tuesday’s county commission meeting, a resolution was passed recognizing the team.

"This is the second year in a row that they've won this and we're very proud of our students of Mercer County," county Commissioner Mike Vinciguerra told WVVA.  "They do a good job representing our county."

Last month the Beavers defeated the number one seated Robert C. Byrd 64 to 39.

And since then, the team's coach, Buster Large, was also recently named the coach of the year for the third straight time.
