Upward Stars Huntington made their season debut at the NAYS Tournament in Charleston, WV April 18-19th. The Stars opened up the tourney Saturday with a 44-33 win over Ravenswood followed by a hard fought loss to Team Irish from Bridgeport, WV. On Sunday the Stars played a very talented WV Heat from Logan. The Stars kept the game close throughout trailing by 6 points with under 4 minutes to go. The WV Heat pulled away at the end to give the Stars their second loss of the tournament. However the Stars found confidence with something to build upon giving the bigger WV Heat a real test. After the game Head Coach Lance Herbert was pleased with how his team played in their first live competion, "I think we are developing some chemistry!"
The Upward Stars will be back in action May 8-10th at Lincoln County High School in Hamiln, WV. Be sure to follow the Upward Stars Huntington on Twitter at @UpwardStarsHTN .
