The first state tournament run in 18 years for the William Monroe boys' basketball team has come to an end in the Division 2 semifinals.
William Monroe forward Markel Williams says he feels a personal connection with the last boys' basketball team from the school to make a run to states.
The William Monroe boys exploded for 30 points in the third quarter of Friday night's Division 2 state quarterfinal, pulling away from Northumberland for an easy 74-44 win.
It had been nearly a year since William Monroe enjoyed a win on the football field. But that streak ended Friday night against George Mason. The Dragons exploded in the first half and hung on in the second to win on homecoming, 48-35.
Last year, the William Monroe Dragons had one of their best season in the last two decades. This year, they'll try to continue those winning ways, but they'll have to do it with a lot of new faces on the field.
Central Virginia high school football teams headed to the practice fields Monday on the first official day of camp.
