Three teams from Southwest Virginia traveled to Richmond to play for a VHSL state basketball championship on Friday night. Two of them - Gate City's Blue Devils and Central's Lady Warriors - brought home the hardware. Eastside put up an incredible fight before falling to Lancaster, 52-49. All of the games were played at VCU's Siegel Center in Richmond.

We asked fans to share their spirit photos using the hashtag, #SWVAStrong, to show support for all three teams or to tag one of our Sports Live tweet team accounts. Thanks for sharing!
