Athletic department tests new electronic scoreboard

By Duncan Nixon

There is a new, very impressive scoreboard in town. On Sept. 22, Fluco Athletic Director Scott Morris and a host of other Fluvanna County school officials gathered at the high school for a test of a new advanced electronic scoreboard that has a screen that measures 24 feet across and 12 feet high. The scoreboard is a product of Daktronics Sports Marketing. The scoreboard picture and sound seemed to work fine during the test.

Morris said that he has been working for a number of years to put together the financing for this new asset. He said that the funding was entirely obtained through donations and corporate sponsorships. The new screen will benefit the athletic department and the school’s video TV production class, which will be able put together projects that can then be shown on the screen. Corporate sponsors include Price Chevrolet, Pepsi Cola of Charlottesville, Mike Arnold Insurance Agency, Ace Hardware of Palmyra and Chick-fil A from Pantops. Morris said that he believes that this scoreboard will be the only one of its kind in Central Virginia.

The current plan for resuming high school sports in Virginia calls for winter sports like basketball and wrestling to begin in late December of this year. A shortened football season will then hopefully kick-off in late February, or early March, of 2021.
