Of the 2001 team's 15 wins, four came against Class AA teams - two over Tolsia and one each against Poca and Ravenswood.
Hurricane has never reached the State Tournament. The Redskins have reached the state quarterfinals four times in school history, the last time coming in 1953 as a Class B school. However, the State Tournament field did not expand to eight teams for all three classes until 1985.

LUKE EDDY is 33 points shy of the 1,000-point mark for his career. The George Washington (7-3) senior guard could surpass the milestone at home Wednesday with a strong showing against Hurricane.
If the 6-foot Eddy does not reach the mark Wednesday, he will most likely get his 1,000th point Friday at Princeton (9-2).
The Tigers, incidentally, were handed their second loss last week at Hurricane. The setback ended a seven-game win streak by the team, who previously lost 59-57 at home to South Charleston on Dec. 15.
The Patriots leaned heavily on Eddy in the first half of the season. After losing standouts such as Thomas Francke and Tino DiTrapano to graduation in 2012, power forward Dustin Crouser to a knee injury suffered in football season and role players Ryan Switzer and Cole Salmons to other pursuits during their senior years, Coach Rick Greene has managed to keep the program in the spotlight thanks in no small part to his trust in Eddy.
Senior Austin Breeden is the only other GW player who scores more than eight points per game, although the Patriots average 55 points per outing.
Eddy continues to lead the Kanawha Valley in scoring. He averages 25.3 points.

MAKE IT six wins in a row by top-ranked Martinsburg (9-0) over Berkeley County rival - and defending Class AAA state champion - Hedgesville (10-1).
The Bulldogs, who were bounced from the semifinals of the 2012 State Tournament by George Washington after being forced to change hotels mid-tournament due to an ongoing methamphetamine investigation at the Motel 6 in Charleston, swept the Eagles in three meetings last season.
Hedgesville was ranked second in the initial AP Class AAA poll of the season.
Martinsburg's Donte' Grantham, a 6-7 senior forward, led the Bulldogs with 17 points and 11 rebounds on the road Friday. Martinsburg led 39-22 at halftime, and was hardly threatened in the matchup.
