State Golf Champions Return to Western Albemarle

October 12, 2011

It was back to school today for members of the Western Albemarle golf team.

They weren't in class Monday or Tuesday because they were in Front Royal--winning the AA State Championship.

The Warriors won the title by six strokes over Cave Spring and were excited to end the season on a positive note.

"This is definitely great," Landon Weis said. "This had been our goal really since our freshman year. We wanted to win States, that's the pinnacle."

"It was a great way to go out," Alex O'Dell added, "Especially since it was the senior season for four of the top six."

"We've been close for four years, I think when they came in as freshmen we were State Runner-Up that year. I think we were fifth their sophomore year then Runner-Up again their junior year. I know they really wanted to win a State Championship so I'm really excited for them," Coach Darren Maynard said.
