Friday the Walters Blue Devils traveled to Carnegie Oklahoma to try to end a fourteen game losing streak that’s been ongoing since the loss to Crossings Christian in the 2018 State playoffs. This season has been rough for the Blue Devils with low turnout and the pandemic making sports hard to plan. With only sixteen boys on the roster it makes it all the more important to keep up with grades and go injury free both have been a big issue the team has faces weekly. The Blue Devils despite all the odds never give up and fight till the end in every game this year.
