Golf, football, volleyball, crime & ducks in a busy week

FCHS golfer Taylor Hawkins pauses for a drink of water on the 7th fairway at Great Oaks Country Club in a high school golf match in 2015.

Quiet here in the country?  Don’t think so!

High school sports is in full swing.

Floyd County High School’s varsity golf team plays Radford on the road Monday at the River Court by the New River.  Match starts at 4 pm.

The JV golfers tee off against Galax Tuesday at Blue Ridge Country Club at 4 pm while the middle school volleyball ladies square off against Christiansburg Middle School at their Montgomery County gym at 4:30.

Wednesday is a quiet day with no high school sports on the calendar but Thursday is busy with the Varsity Three Rivers District Match against James River in Buchanan at Botetourt Country Club at 2 pm while the JV team takes on Galas at Old Mill Golf Court.  In Floyd, middle school footballers take on Auburn in a scrimmage at FCHS at 4:30 pm and JV’s squad tackles Galax on the road at 7 pm.

The Varsity Buffaloes meet Galax in Floyd Friday at 7 pm for a benefit game that provides game ticket revenue to the two schools and the Virginia High School League.  That match lets the Buffs work out any last minute kinks before opening the regular football season at home against Christiansburg at 7pm on Aug. 30.

In Circuit Court Tuesday, a long docket awaits before Judge Marc Long, starting at 9:30 am.

And let’s not forget the ducks.  Floyd’s annual Rubber Duck race hits the waters of Little River Saturday.

Let the madness begin.
