Spring 2024 Sports Recap

It was a busy spring for our student-athletes, from hosting numerous major events to competing in conference and state tournaments.
The Varsity Golf team represented the region and state by hosting two tournaments this spring. On April 22, 66 female golfers from 21 schools around the state joined the Turtles at the Tuscarora Country Club for the 18-hole Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association (VISAA) Girls Invitational State Tournament, the first of that length at the state level for girls. During the tournament, Ellery Blurton ‘24 placed in the top 10 and all golfers scored their personal best for 18 holes. On May 1, the team also hosted the Blue Ridge Athletic Conference (BRAC) Girls’ Golf Championship. Blurton and Stephanie Cano Barranco ‘24 both earned placement on the All-BRAC Team and Head Coach Zach Smith was named BRAC Golf Coach of the Year for the second consecutive time.
