The regular season is over and this past week has been the opening of post season play for most of the Northumberland Indian teams.

Lancaster took both the guys and the girls team titles in Tuesday’s Northern Neck District championship held at the old King’s Quarters course this past Tuesday. The Northumberland  guys finished one place behind W&L to take third in the meet with 62 points. The Indians’ Zach Moore was the district’s runner-up with an 18:06 time. Dustin Perez finished thirteenth (20:34); Pierce Delcourt was fourteenth (20:48); Tom Neale twentieth (22:18; and Grant Biddlecomb twenty first (22:57).

The entire team advances to this Wednesday’s Region 1A championship at the William and Mary course.

Bess  Blake, the lone Indian lass, took sixth place overall with a 26:35 clocking. She also advances to Wednesday’s 1A meet.

Blake finished as an All Northern Neck first team harrier. Taking the same honors for the guys were Zach Moore, Dustin Perez and Pierce Delcourt. Making the All Northern Neck Academic team were Bess Blake, Grant Biddlecomb, Pierce Delcourt, Zach Moore and Tom Neale.

The Lady Indians field hockey team advanced last week in the opening round of the 3A Region B quarterfinals with a 3-0 win over 3A Fluvanna County here on Tuesday. They will advance this Monday to face the regular season top team 3A Western Albemarle at Crozet in a game rescheduled from last Thursday due to the weather.

On Monday, the Lady Indians were on the warpath and the early portions of the game showed it. In the words of Coach Mark Fridenstine, the team “came out strong and kept the ball on the Fluvanna Flying Flucos’ end of the field.” At the fourteen minute mark of the opening period senior captain Chloey O’Bier scored the opening goal that would have been the game winner. The Indians added two more in the second in what ended with a very dominated game.
