Fluco sports in review

The next day, the golf team faced off against Louisa again, this time at Louisa.  The result was the same, unfortunately, bringing its only hope for a win during the week to the Sept. 12 match against Powhatan.  The Flucos’ desire for a win remained fruitless there too, as they fell to Powhatan, one of the top golf teams in the state.
Although the Flucos didn’t snag a win last week, they have been more successful than in years past.  “We’ve improved a lot from last year, but we still have a lot of improvement to do.  We’re getting better, slowly but steadily,” said junior Christian Baber.  The Flucos looked to improve during their next match against Charlottesville on Sept. 17.


The Fluvanna varsity volleyball squad continued its winning streak Sept. 9 when they defeated the Waynesboro Little Giants 3-1.  “We’re just getting to learn how to play with each other in some new spots and we’ve done well so far,” said returning player Maddy Kline.  The Flucos continue to play a smart and agile game and have been keeping the ball alive on their side.  “We’re only going to get better,” said Kline.

Junior varsity volleyball also had a successful night as they beat Waynesboro in the first and last match, winning 2-1 overall.  “We had good communication,” said sophomore Avery Haislip.  The Lady Fluco matches for the week of Sept. 16  include Albemarle High School, Orange County High School, and Harrisonburg.

Middle school cross country

The Flying Flucos put up a fight Sept. 11, and brought home a victory against the Louisa Lions.  The top three middle school girls to score were Kristen Cabrera, coming in at 13:39, Saige Haney at 14:20, and Haley Kennedy at 14:41.  “They did an outstanding job,” said Coach Rose Brogan.  The boys reciprocated the win, with Chris Newton, Bradley Holtz, and Jack Easter finishing in the top three slots for Fluvanna.  Both girls and boys Middle School cross country teams competed against the Lions for the second time on Sept. 17.

Girls’ high school cross country

On Sept. 14, the cross country team participated in the Woodberry 5K Invitational.  The junior varsity team placed 1st in their division with a total of 44 points.  The top three Fluvanna runners included Kristen Cabrera, Haley Kennedy, and Saige Haney.  “I think the team did very well, considering the toughness of the course,” said sophomore Mia Scalzo.  The varsity cross country team did a fantastic job as well and finished in fourth place with a total of 137 points.  “I think the rest of the season will go really great because of the strong team we have, and our great coaches,” said Scalzo.  The top three runners in the varsity race included Nicki Douma with 20:14, Devon Burger with 21:27 and Ellie Smialek with 22:51.  The next cross country meet will be a districts match at Charlottesville High School on Sept. 25.

Boys’ high school cross country

The cross country boys also participated in the Woodberry 5K, and had a successful day.  The boys’ junior varsity cross country team was represented by Josh Carlton and Jamie Fletcher.  It was a strong finish with Fletcher finishing 18 seconds ahead of Carlton.  “This year’s team is growing a lot and we have made a lot of improvement,” said sophomore Keegan Campanelli.

Meanwhile, the boys’ varsity team finished tenth out of 18 teams. Travis Moe led Fluvanna with a time of 18:02, followed by Jonathan Corbin and Andy Guess with times of 19:03 and 19:15 respectively. “I think we have been pretty successful and will be able to become faster and stronger though hard work and dedication,” Campanelli said. The boys’ next meet will be at CHS on Sept. 25.
