Virginia/Mt. Iron-Buhl Blue Devils
Virginia-Mountain Iron-Buhl is used to a great hockey tradition, and this year the team has done a tremendous job living up to that history.
The team graduated a talented bunch of seniors last year, but many players have stepped up to keep the rich tradition alive.
The Blue Devils battled injuries and sickness all year long but their depth has been a huge asset. When players went down, others stepped up. Head coach Reed Larson says his team should never be counted out of the game, no matter what the score. They have that 'never quit' mentality.
Larson says the team lives by two phrases, "We are gritty, not pretty" and "They don't ask how, they ask how many!"
