Congratulations are in order for the Oak Hill Midget League A-team on the completion of a successful year on the gridiron. “The team’s hard work and dedication paid off by their winning this year’s championship with a record of 11-0,” said a spokesman. “Faced by new teams, new rules and its being the first year in the Beckley league made winning this year’s championship a great accomplishment.” Building on that success, the A-team traveled to Knoxville, Tenn. to play in a national competition called The Battle of the Rocky Top. There, Oak Hill won its first three games and advanced to the championship tilt before losing and claiming runner-up status. Team officials thanked all the local businesses and individuals who donated to help make the trip possible. And, the coaches and parents expressed their pride in the team and thanked them for their efforts.
