Area Spring State Champs - ABC 13 Team of the Week
Today is high school Team of the Week day on ABC 13 Sports. Today we congratulate this weekend's four area state champions...Floyd County softball, Cave Spring softball, Blacksburg boys soccer and E.C. Glass boys tennis.
Cave Spring won its first softball state title, knocking off defending champ Woodgrove 8-3 to cap a 24-and-4 season.
Blacksburg boys soccer captured its 12th state title, first since 2010, the Bruins blanked E.C. Glass 3-0.
And E.C. Glass boys tennis beat Briar Woods 5-2 for the Hilltoppers' first boys tennis crown since 2000, the eighth in school history. The Hilltoppers put the perfect icing on a 22-and-1 season.
Thacher Jennings, GLASS #1 SINGLES PLAYER, said "You know I feel like it brings our team back to the top. You know it gives the other teams, like they know we're E.C. Glass. We're the defending, or state champion."
Shelley Blumenthal, BLACKSBURG SOCCER HEAD COACH, said "Great group of kids, they said from day one they wanted to reach their full potential. And it's amazing the number of goals that they accomplished from what they set out."
