Gilmer County Dethrones St. Joe

The Free Press WV

CHARLESTON, WV – Gilmer County dethroned 7-time defending Class A girls basketball state champion St. Joseph Central 42-41 on Saturday afternoon, ending one of the most dominant dynasties in West Virginia high school basketball history.

St. Joe (21-4) was going for an eighth straight title, which would have tied the Northfork boys basketball team’s eight straight titles from 1974-1981.

It’s the first girls basketball state championship for Gilmer County (25-2).

“It feels awesome and I’ve had confidence in my team all year to do this,” said Gilmer County’s Kylie Shuff. “We’ve played together our whole lives to do this.”

Shuff finished with 20 points on 8 of 13 shooting, bringing the Titans back for a second half comeback.

St. Joe led 27-15 at the break, but Gilmer County outscored the Irish 18-7 in the third to cut St. Joe’s lead down to 35-34 heading to the fourth behind Shuff.

A layup from Riley Fitzwater at the 7:51 mark of the fourth gave the Titans a 35-34 advantage. The Irish, though, responded with six straight points to retake the lead at 40-35 and 5:59 left.

With 1:20 to go, a layup from Shuff pulled the Titans within two, 40-38. A 3 from Emile Jedamski at the 1:03 mark gave Gilmer County the 41-40 advantage.

After a made free throw for both teams, Alexis Hall’s potential game-winner for St. Joe in the closing seconds was off, sparking pandemonium on the floor and in the stands.

G-LtE™: When I Played Basketball for Coach Jim Justice….

The Free Press WV

Dear Editor,

When I played basketball for coach Jim Justice, he had a way to tell us that it was time to step up our game a notch. He’d use a baseball metaphor all the time at practice when it’s the bottom of the ninth and the count is 3 balls and 2 strikes, winners always want the ball to be hit to them. During games, he would yell from the bench “The count is 3 and 2,“ and every player on the court knew exactly what he meant. It was time to step up and take control of the game.

Our state is at the point now where we need someone to step up for West Virginians, and that’s exactly what Jim Justice is doing right now. He is running for Governor because he wants to go to work and make West Virginia great. Jim is the best hope that our state has; because I know that no one will work harder than him to get results. I can’t ever remember him missing practice; he always stays busy, but the man knows how to get things done.

When I played for Jim, he was always encouraging us to do our best and telling us we could do anything we put our minds to. He wanted all of his players to do well in life, not just on the court. He always stressed getting good grades and having good character. I often draw from his many stories and life lessons.

I know Jim has put his mind to improving West Virginia, and if anyone can do it— it’s him. When I graduate from Glenville State, I want to be able to get a job in West Virginia and build a life here. I just want the opportunity to stay near my family and have a career. But, if the state continues on the direction it’s going, I might have to leave. I think that Jim will reverse the tide of the state. I think he’ll set the state back on track. It is the bottom of the of the ninth, the count is 3-2, and it’s time to give Jim Justice the ball.

Cheerleader Remembers Normantown’s 1945 Run to Title

As high school state basketball tournament action heats up in Charleston, 87-year-old Morgantown resident and former Normantown High School cheerleader Betty Cross recalls her school’s memorable run to the state title 70 years ago.

In 1945, Normantown High School, a small high school in Gilmer County that only had a little more than 100 students at the time, had a Cinderella season en route to an improbable state title in hoops. Cross, whose maiden name was Betty Jean Whitesel, was one of only two cheerleaders at the school. She fondly recalls her neighbor and one of the players on the team predicting a state tournament victory before the season.

“One of the players who left next to me and I lived in Gilmer County close to the school, and he said to me, Betty Jean, we’re going to win this tournament,” she recalled this week when speaking with MetroNews.

The Gilmer Free Press


Much like Hickory High in the famous movie “Hoosiers”, Normantown beat several larger schools on their way to capturing a championship which at that time was played in Morgantown. Cross remembers how large the crowds were that showed up to watch the games, despite a premium on gasoline at the time.

“The gymnasium was filled to overflowing in Glenville when they played the sectional. The same thing in Clarksburg when they played WI in the regional,” Cross said. “And I think they had more people in the fieldhouse in Morgantown at that time for the tournament than there had ever been before.”

The Vikings won three games in Morgantown including two in the same day with the championship coming over Logan.

How was such a tiny school able to pull off a run to a state championship? Cross said that the Normantown Vikings team that year was known for their slow deliberate style of play and cool demeanor on the court.

“They were very stable in their play,” she recalled. “They never went wild or anything, they just contained. They played that slow, controlled type of basketball. And I can’t remember a time where they were flustered.”

Cross said she has fond memories of the championship season, which was her junior year at Normantown. She noted that, remarkably, herself, 9 of the 11 players on the team, the manager, and the other cheerleader, Jean Robert Pitts, were all members of the junior class.
