A few observations from this season.  I hate the fact the VHSL reduced the state tournament from 36 holes to 18 holes.  Sleeping on a lead and coming from behind are key components of tournament golf!  The River Course is a tough course so, 306 is an exceptional team score.  Won't look quite as good compared to other team scores from years past but they don't often play a course as tough as The River Course.  Channing Blevins came to Galax and tied for 3rd at the Blue Ridge Invitational in August against the top amateur and professional adults in our region.  Quality field and the kid more than held his own!

I thought this was interesting, maybe you will too!

Since the VHSL went to the 6 classification system in 2013, Region C and/or D has won the state golf championship 16 of 20 times over the lower three classifications.  17 championships in 21 tries if you add Blacksburg's 2017 AAAA title.  Go back to 2000, and we can add another 17 state titles when the VHSL only recognized three classifications statewide.  That's 34 state championships in 19 years!

  • 2019 - George Wythe (A), Radford (AA)
  • 2018 - George Wythe (A), Union (AA),, Abingdon (AAA)
  • 2017 - Auburn (A), Abingdon (AAA), Blacksburg (AAAA)
  • 2016 - George Wythe (A), Giles (AA), Blacksburg (AAA)
  • 2015 - George Wythe (A), Abingdon (AAA)
  • 2014 - Hidden Valley (AAA)
  • 2013 - Holston (A), Graham (AA), Tunstall (AAA)

This end of the state dominates in a sport perceived to be for the elite.  Yet, our end of the state is perceived to be much less than elite by the eastern end of the state.  Funny how perception can be so far from reality!
