There's nothing better than a state championship title... unless it's TWO! In a single weekend, two teams showed the VISAA conference competition that they are the best of the best.
FRIDAY: For the fourth year in a row, the boys' cross country team captured the D2 VISAA state championship. The team that Milestat.com has called "a dynasty" outran the competition, beating nearest competitor Trinity Christian convincingly as our top six runners finished before their third man came in. It was a freezing day, only 39 degrees at the time of the race, but our boys were tough and prepared for it.
Andrew V became the 2017 state runner-up after a long battle with the race leader, and despite slipping in the mud and falling, he made the most graceful recovery ever to help lead the team to victory. Thomas H and Aaron K also won all-state honors.
AND THEN: While the cross country teams battled it out in Orange, VA, PC's Lady Knights traveled to Norfolk Christian on Friday for the VISAA semi-final match. They defeated their competition, but had one more day to go before the winner of it all would be declared. On Saturday, the Lady Knights took on long-standing rival Middleburg Academy, and won the title in 4 sets. With a gym full of Blue Crew fans, the Lady Knights ended a near-perfect season in the top spot.
