The distance from Zanesville to Value City Arena is only 61 miles. The journey with the Blue Devil basketball team has seemed a lot longer than just those 61 miles. It seems like its been a 1,000 mile trip, but this is the last stop on everyones list.
Tonight at Winland Gym the Blue Devils held a community pep rally for the state bound boys basketball team, who will try to advance to the schools third state title game in the last 15 years on the 15th aniversery of the last Blue Devil team to win a state title.
Fans young and old came from all around to cheer on the success of this team and what they have done, but it means just as much to the community as it does the team.
