Coach Rose Brogan announced that “it’s a beautiful day,” even before her team raced to victory at the year-end Jefferson District meet. It was the second consecutive Jefferson District title for the girls’ team. The Jefferson District boys and girls cross country meet was held on Wednesday (Oct. 24) over a 5K course at Powhatan High School, just west of Richmond.

Football

The last week hasn’t been the most memorable one for the football team as both junior varsity and varsity faced off against the Monticello Mustangs.

Fluco competition cheer squadThe Flying Fluco competition cheer squad has been hard at work this season. First year Coach Julia Hogue reports that this year’s squad which consists of sixteen athletes, has been working on its routines six days a week. She notes that this “is a strong group of girls.” The team practices Monday through Friday after school, or Monday through Thursday with a performance at the football game on Friday. In addition, the team practices for three or four hours on Saturday. It takes discipline, co-ordination and training to create a successful squad. This team is clearly putting in the necessary time.

The invitational hosted 45 top-tier teams all with the same goal: to outrun their opponent.
