Fluco Sports

Fluco captains at midfieldThe Flying Fluco varsity football team took the field by storm in its home opener against Spotsylvania Friday night (Sept. 2) when the Flucos went all the way for a touchdown on their first snap.

The Flucos went on to top the Spotsylvania Knights 26-13 in the team’s first successful game after a winless season last year.
After the opening kick-off, the Flucos had the ball on their own 23-yard line. Senior quarterback Mark Grooms ran right on a keeper. He picked up a couple of nice blocks, broke a couple of arm tackles and then simply ran away from the Knights’ defenders for the score. Junior Ethan Graves kicked the extra point and the Flucos led 7-0 after 22 seconds of play.

Instructions to the squad. The Flying Fluco football team under Coach Steve Szarmach is looking for a strong start this season.
The team’s first game is Friday (Aug. 26) when they will travel to Loudon County to take on Freedom-South Riding High School. The team’s home opener is on the Friday of Labor Day weekend (Sept. 2), when Spotsylvania High comes to Fluvanna. Last season the Flucos suffered through a winless season, but they lost to these two teams by one point each. Accordingly, they are looking to turn those two losses around and get off to a winning start. A special pre-game barbecue tailgate is planned in the parking lot for the home opener.

Flucos practice golfIt was only the second day of school, but it was the second event of the season for the Fluco golf team. On Aug. 10 the golfers under Coach Bryan Searcy traveled to the Old Trail course in Crozet for a Jefferson District match. Old Trail is the home course of the Western Albemarle team. After a lot of rain, the golfers were happy to have near perfect conditions for this competition.
The Old Trail course, played from the regular men’s white tees, is slightly friendlier than the Lake Monticello course the Flucos call home.  The Old Trail course has a rating of 69.9/125 slope, while the Lake Monticello course is 71.0/131 slope. Nonetheless, the Flucos had some problems navigating the Old Trail course, which is flatter than would be expected for a course so close to the mountains. The team finished seventh in an eight-team field.

Logan GibsonThe Flying Flucos’ baseball team ended regular season play on Wednesday, May 18, with senior Logan Gibson throwing a masterful no–hitter against the Charlottesville Black Knights. Gibson struck out 13 and walked three in this seven–inning contest. The only ball hit by Charlottesville that had a chance of being a hit came so early in the game that its significance was not recognized at the time. Add a comment
