APPOMATTOX, VA – This weekend the Raiders of Appomattox High School continued making history by extending their win streak to 30 consecutive games – the longest active record in the Virginia High School League.
With a perfect record heading into Saturday’s Virginia 2A State Championship game, Appomattox did not disappoint with a dominating 42-7 win to clinch it’s second straight Virginia State Championship.
Following Saturday’s win, Congressman-elect Tom Garrett issued the following congratulatory statement:
“I tip my hat to the tremendous effort of this amazing team. Capping back to back perfect seasons with a State Championship is something very few teams ever get to experience and there is no team more deserving than our Appomattox Raiders. I would also like to commend Head Coach Doug Smith for the State and National recognition he has earned this season – he has made the Commonwealth very proud. I look forward to seeing what else is in store for this group moving forward.”
Appomattox is one of 21 counties with the cities of Charlottesville and Danville rounding out Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District.
