FAIRMONT -

An AAU basketball team from Fairmont is preparing to go to Memphis for the National Championships.

The West Virginia Reign, a team made of 13-year-olds, qualified for the national tournament for the second straight year. The team won the regional tournament in Charleston.

The tournament is June 29th- July 6th.

"These kids put a lot of hard work and time in the gym," said head coach Deon Dobbs. "We practice 3-4 days a week. For them to meet their goals, I think it's evidence of how hard they work."

The Reign is raising funds to travel. Saturday the team will hold a one-day showcase Saturday at Fairmont Senior High School. If you'd like to donate you can find more information on its web site.
