Sport’s banquet


On Thursday, (Nov. 14), the a very successful volleyball season game to an end as the Flucos lost in the Region 4A semi-finals to an undefeated Loudoun County High team. The girls’ cross country team and the boys’ top runner, Travis Moe were scheduled to run in the State meet on Friday (Nov. 15) at the Great Meadow in the northern Virginia area.

At this year’s banquet, head football coach Jason Barnett was the first coach to speak. He noted that the team did not have the success that it hoped for at the beginning of the season, but he thanked all who assisted the team this year and noted that there is reason to hope for better results in the future. At the separate team meeting later in the evening, Barnett announced that his players received a number of Jefferson District honors. Senior Goodience Flannagan who had two punt returns for touchdowns was named to the All Jefferson District first team as a punt returner.

A number of Flucos won second team All-Jefferson District honors. Senior Jesse Vandyke made the second team at wide receiver and at defensive back. Senior running back Marcus Jackson, senior linebacker Jesse Lokits, senior defensive lineman Deiondre Key, and senior offensive lineman Josh Wheaton were also selected to second team All- Jefferson District. Coach Barnett also noted that senior center Geoff Goodwin played two and a half years at center for the Flucos without a single bad snap, so Barnett and the coaches named him lineman of the year.

Coach Bryan Searcy was the second coach to take the microphone and reported that the golf team made good progress this year. He had some outstanding performers and the team became co-ed for the first time. Two golfers, senior senior Dylon Garrett  and freshman Jake Stanke were good enough to progress to the Region 4A tournament. Another highlight of the season was hosting the first ever Conference 23 year end tournament at the Lake Monticello golf course.

Cheer coach Julia Hogue was next up and she reported that her competition team achieved a second place finish in the Jefferson District meet. She noted that her team practices as much as six days a week from March to February and she lauded them for their dedication.

Volleyball coach Christi Harlowe-Garrett spoke next and she reported on a highly successful season. The Flying Flucos volleyball team was 24-4 on the season at that point (They finished at 24-5). The team won the first ever Conference 23 title beating strong teams from Amherst County High and John Handley High. In addition, the team had just won its first match in Region 4A play. The Jefferson District coaches honored four of the Flucos six starters with All-Jefferson District slots. Sophomore setter Kate Stutz and junior middle hitter Leslie Walters were named to the second team. Senior outside hitter Emily Haden and junior outside hitter Maddy Kline were named to the first team, and Kline was named Jefferson District player of the year.

Tom Casto the boys’ cross country coach noted that the team was very young this season, with no seniors on the roster, so he expects good things going forward. This year’s standout runner was junior Travis Moe, who won All–Jefferson District, All-Conference 23 and All-Region 4A honors.

Rose Brogan the girls’ cross country coach had a host of honors to report. Her team finished second in the Jefferson District, and Nicki Douma and Devon Burger were All-Jefferson District. The Flucos won the first ever Conference 23 title, as Nicki Douma won the race, with Devon Burger finishing second.
