Poca 5th All-Stars Three-peat as KVYBL Champions

Front Row:  Christian LeRose, Dallas Dunn, III, Jackson Toney

Back Row:  Asst. Coach Dallas Dunn, Isaac McKneely, Logan Saunders, Toby Payne, Gabriel Keech, Ethan Maynor, Head Coach Dan McKneely. 

This years task was tough but our Dots were up for the challenge. We finished 1st in the regular season with a 14-1 record, our only loss by 1 point early in the season. The tournament run was hard as we had to beat Westside, South Hills, and a tough Hurricane team in the championship to win the 2015 KVYBL Title.

The Poca 5th grade all-star team finished what has been an great run over the last three years, compiling a 55-4 record and winning three straight KVYBL Championship trophies.  This is an amazing feat considering we are one of the smallest leagues and compete against mostly AAA school communities.  They also competed in the Morgantown Youth Elite Showcase Tournament earlier this year and went 5-0 and claimed the tournament title.  This is a great group of young men, not only for their talent on the court but their attitudes and commitment to working as a team.  Best of Luck to these boys as they move onto middle school next year.
