Two Flucos sign to play at the next level

By Duncan Nixon, Correspondent

Christina Walker was the first Fluco athlete to sign her letter of intent at the fall signing ceremony held in the Fluco cafeteria Nov. 14. Walker will be playing volleyball next year at Division I George Mason University in suburban Fairfax County. She was a standout kill shot specialist for the Fluco volleyball team, and was a first team All-District and All-Region selection.

Walker, who was an honor roll student, says she expects to be doing a lot of work on her blocking and hitting before she begins play for the Patriots.

At the signing ceremony, Walker was flanked by her parents, Tighe and Debbie Walker. Christina’s older sister Kayla was also a standout volleyball player for the Flucos. She went on to play at the college level at Shepherd University in West Virginia.

The second signee of the day was Fluco baseball player Jacob Critzer. He will move on next season to Lincoln Memorial University in rural Tennessee. Lincoln Memorial is a Division II school that plays other small liberal arts schools such as Carson-Newman, Catawba and Wingate University.

Critzer said that the coaches there saw him play in a tournament in Tennessee and that he really liked the rural feel of the school, which he found comparable to Fluvanna County. Critzer played a number of positions for the Flucos and may do so at Lincoln Memorial as well.

Like Walker, Critzer was first team All-District and All-Region. He hopes that that before he heads off to college the very competitive Fluco baseball team can garner a State title. At the signing, Critzer was accompanied by his parents, Chris and Brandy Critzer, and by his younger brother Charley.
