Three State Champions Crowned Saturday!

BASEBALL: The Glen Allen Jaguars captured the first State Baseball Championship in school history Saturday with a 9-3 win over Jefferson Forest in the 4A State title game at Liberty University in Lynchburg. The Jaguars go 6-0 in the postseason, finishing the year at 23-3.

Baseball joins Competition Cheer, who won the Virginia High School League (VHSL) 4A State Championship last November, as the first two state champion sports teams in school history.

Glen Allen will not be able to defend their title, though, as this fall the Jaguars, along with J.R. Tucker, move up to the 5A classification and will join Conference 11, which includes Douglas Freeman, Deep Run, Mills Godwin, Hermitage, Henrico, and Lee-Davis. Atlee moves to Conference 16 in 5A North while Highland Springs moves to Conference 12.

GIRLS TENNIS: The domination of Mills Godwin continues as the Eagles captured yet another state championship, winning the 5A title in Newport News this afternoon over George Marshall, 5-3.

BOYS SOCCER: Two second-half goals propel the Mills Godwin Eagles to a 2-0 win over Broad Run to claim the 5A State Championship Saturday afternoon at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax. Will Martin and Tommy Kinnick scored less than two minutes apart in the 69th and 71st minutes to clinch and insure.

The Eagles complete the season at 18-4-1.
