It's the opening week of high school football playoffs in West Virginia, and the Weirton Madonna Blue Dons are making their return to the postseason.
Following a 10-0 season, the Dons are the top seed of the West Virginia Class A playoff rankings, and will host 16th seed Tucker County tonight at Jimmy Carey Stadium.
Led by players such as Ross Comis, Eliott Nero, Will Bowser, Josh Martin and Nate Martin, it has been a memorable year we're sure will be recalled for years to come.
The postseason is nothing new for the Blue Dons, with several appearances in recent years, including multiple times in the championship game and a Class A title.
These young men continue to put up big numbers, so it really is no surprise they have, once again, reached this point in the year.
We congratulate them on their gridiron success to date and encourage our residents to cheer them on as they continue their march toward victory.
