DELAWARE — West Jefferson came into the Division III Central District championship game with the No. 1 seed, just one loss in the season and revenge on its mind after Fredericktown downed the Roughriders in last year’s District final.
The No. 3-seeded Freddies had other plans, and dropped West Jefferson for the second straight year, winning back-to-back titles for the first time since 1974 and 1975 with an 8-1 victory.
“There was some talk about (back-to-back championships) at the beginning of the year, something that was in the back of our minds to accomplish,” Fredericktown head coach Ryan Hathaway said. “But you don’t always have a chance to play in those things.”
