Fluco sports in review

Meanwhile, Coach Rose Brogan was chosen Coach of the Year, the second time she has gotten that honor in two years. “It’s pretty exciting,” said Brogan. The team’s next goal is to make it to states, which will take place at Great Meadows on Nov. 3.  Until then, the team will be working hard and focusing intensely on the task ahead of them.

Although they didn’t take the top spot, the boys’ cross country team earned a respectable fourth place in districts with a total of 83 points, six points behind third place winner, Charlottesville.  Senior Chris Markham placed second with a time of 17:15, sophomore Travis Moe came in seventh, and sophomore Austen Early placed 11th setting a new personal record of 18:19.

The boys found the Powhatan course rather challenging. “There were lots of rocks which are hard on your spikes,” said Markham. “It kind of takes you out of race mode.”  Overall, the Flucos had a successful season and are ready to come back next year and make it to regionals.  “We are a young team and we will get better as we practice,” said sophomore Travis Moe.  One thing team members are planning to continue for next year is weight training in the high school’s new weightlifting room. “It helps build muscle because we get to exercise our muscles in more ways than just running,” said freshman runner Jamie Fletcher.


On Oct. 29, the Flucos took on Western Albemarle in the last game of the Flucos’ season.  The game was exciting and intense.  On the first drive, Western scored on Fluvanna.  The Flucos answered right back by scoring with a very tricky play.  Both teams went head to head and ended the first half with a score of 33-14, with Western Albemarle leading.  “We had a couple good defensive stands,” said sophomore Peter Lacey. The second half was no different.  The Flucos and the Knights fought it out until the end with a final score of 40-28 and a win for Western.


When both the junior varsity and varsity Lady Flucos volleyball teams faced the Western Albemarle Warriors on Oct. 23, they had similar results, but very different outcomes. The  junior varsity  team played first, losing to Western 25-23 & 25-15. “We played our hearts out for this one” said sophomore Abigail Williams, but it wasn’t enough, as it ended their  district hopes, and ended up being their last game of the season.

Next, it was varsity’s turn. Western took the lead 13-11 in the first set, took the second set 25-19, and finished the third set 25-18. It was a disappointing loss; however, thanks to their overall season record, varsity will go on to district play.

“We didn’t play our best, but hopefully we’ll play them at the end of the district tournament and then we can beat them,” said junior Emily Haden.  The team will participate in the district tournament this week against the Mustangs at Powhatan. If the outcome is positive one, the Lady Flucos will be on their way to regionals.
