A hectic Saturday for several area high schools around Hampton Roads trying to chase down state championships. Among the winners, the First Colonial girls soccer team. The Patriots (21-1) won over James Madison in the Class 6 title game 2-1. They bring home the first girls championship in soccer for the area in 13 years. The Tabb softball team completed at perfect season (26-0) as they won big over Cave Spring 9-2 in the Class 3 finals. It gives the Bay Rivers District their 3rd straight state championship with Warhill's previous two in a row.
Not so fortunate on the Southside was Western Branch. After jumping out to an early 1-0 lead against West Springfield in the Class 6 baseball final, the defending champion Bruins fell 12-2. Jamestown had their troubles as well as they lost in the Class 4 title game to Salem 2-1 in a walk-off by the Spartans.
The peninsula suffered a pair of losses in boys soccer. York's chance at a first ever title fell short at the hands of Cave Spring in the Class 3 finals 1-0. Grafton was shutout 6-0 by Blacksburg in the Class 4 championship. In tennis, a pair of Virginia Beach schools lost. The Class 6 boys final, saw the Cox Falcon's chance at an unbeaten season (15-1) come to an abrupt halt as they lost to Chantilly 5-0 and it was the same score for the Kellam girls as they got taken down by W.T. Woodson.
