Huntington Devilettes Heading To State Tourney
This was the season that the Huntington Devilettes were supposed to be in a bit of a rebuilding mode.
Apparently, the folks that said that must be the same folks that have been trying to forecast the weather recently.
After finishing 2nd in a very tough district, Huntington hasn't lost a game through the class 3A playoffs and are now set to make the trip to Austin for the state tournament.
The last time the Devilettes went to Austin was 2008, and they brought home the championship hardware...the goal is the same in 2011.
This year's playoff run has been impressive, especially so because it seems in every game, it's a different individual or group of ladies that lead the charge and get the job done. It's a great exhibition of a true team effort.
A special thanks to some of the team members who made the trip to KICKS 105's Merrell in the Morning Show this morning to talk about the season.

Huntington will be facing top ranked Celina in the state semifinal game on Friday morning at 8:30. The championship game will be held at 2pm on Saturday. All games will be played at McCombs Field on the campus of UT-Austin.
All games will be heard on our sister station, Q107.7, with Danny Merrell and Eric Wright with the call.
There will be a community pep rally and send off for the Devilettes this Tuesday at Centennial Park beginning at 6.
