It was quite the accomplishment by eight Buchanan County, Virginia girls on the basketball court.
They're the Grundy Gladiators and they won silver medals in the Commonwealth Games of Virginia.
Their coach says they defied the odds. They faced larger teams and still averaged 20 points in the first half of every game they played.
The Gladiators will go on to compete in the State Games of America in Pennsylvania next year.
Here are the results of their games:
Gladiators vs CIC Lady Warriors Win 53-27
Gladiators vs Pulaski Cougars Win 51-41
Gladiators vs Danville Hoop Dreamz Win 56-35
Gladiators vs Pulaski Cougars Lose 49-46
The team is Savannah Stiltner, Cassie Keene, Ashley Slone, Paige Allen, Nadia Dawson, Lexi Coleman, Haley Lester, Kirsten Peck, Taylor Ratliff, Coach Kayla Johnson and Coach David Peck.
