RIPLEY - Early last week the West Virginia Sports Writers Association released the Class AA All State squad and two Ravenswood High sluggers garnered recognition.

Junior Devon Crews was named to the second team. Crews hit (.487) with four homeruns while driving in 38 RBIs and scoring 31 runs.

Sophomore Thomas Sturm was given Special Honorable Mention recognition for his fine play on the diamond.
Sturm hit .414 and knocked in 20 runs while scoring 30.

The Red Devils, winners of 19 games this season, produced the biggest turnaround in West Virginia prep baseball last year after a three win campaign in 2012.

Herbert Hoover's Corey Bird repeated as the captain of the Class AA squad.
