VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - It was a moment like no other in the history of Princess Anne High School. The student body stormed the field following the Cavaliers 21-0 win over Kempsville.
You would think the Cavaliers had just won the state championship, but they had instead just ended a 42-game losing streak.
"Seeing all those people rush the field, it was life changing," said defensive end Dondre Thomas.
Senior Jake Keech is the only member of this year's team to play four years with the Cavaliers. While many of his teammates were leaving the team, the 160-pound guard kept the faith through their difficult times.
"It was very frustrating, heartbreaking, discouraging. You get a lot of kids who come out here and quit after one season We do have a lot of players who stuck it out and it says a lot about our character," said Head Coach Ray Gatlin.
