Fishburne Military School Golfers Win

military schools in Virginia Fishburne Golf Team wins recap by Coach Galloway

The Fishburne Military School golf team earned a big win over three strong opponents yesterday. The Caissons came out ahead of Blue Ridge, Holy Cross, and Virginia Episcopal School Tuesday afternoon after a disqualification of a Blue Ridge player’s score and some steady playing by Fishburne.

The scores were 222 for Holy Cross, 212 for Blue Ridge, 204 for VES, and 203 for FMS.

Happy news, but we must continue to work on our short game to stay in the running. The team was much improved on the putting green but is still having trouble off the tee and getting to the green from 100 to 200 yards out. We will continue to work on that.

The Fishburne Military School Caissons were represented by Cadets Tyler Long ’17 (Beavercreek, OH), Garrett Venn ’17 (Staunton, VA), Blake Seydel ’17 (Highlands Ranch, CO), Gavin Overton ’16 (Sanford, NC), Kyle Churchwell ’18 (Herndon, VA), and Alexander Ralston ’17 (Nellysford, VA). Good job guys.

The oldest and smallest of all military schools for boys in Virginia, Fishburne Military School’s college-prep curriculum is built upon the structure of an Army JROTC program.
FMS is designated as a JROTC Honor Unit with Distinction and may nominate qualified candidates to the United States Service Academics. Fishburne hosts one of only four
Summer JROTC programs in the nation, accredited by US Army Cadet Command.
