Varsity athletics teams had a chance at competitive play this winter and spring with masking and distance learning while in season.

Spring highlights included:

At the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) state-wide meet, Gabriel Albers ’21 was named Athlete of the Meet and Most Valuable Runner for DII. He broke two school records in both hurdle events. Overall, the boys team finished 6th with 53 points, and the Flames had 17 top 10 finishes.

Ryan Slonaker ’24 shot a 68 (-4) at Williamsburg National Golf Club to claim the VISAA Division III state title. He finished with an eagle, four birdies, 11 pars, and just two bogeys. He won the individual championship by one stroke with a birdie on the 18th hole.

The girls varsity soccer team had two thrilling wins in the first and quarterfinal rounds of VISAA state play, winning both games in penalty kicks, the second in a sudden victory knockout. They dropped 0-2 in the final game of the season to Covenant in the state semifinal.

Throughout the whole year, JV and middle school teams met for skill-building activities. Middle and high school intramural teams competed in pickleball, disc golf, volleyball, spikeball, and cornhole to stay active.
