A pep rally was held at Pleasant Grove Park.  Photo by Dee Dee Beninghove KentThe Flying Flucos were out in force on Thursday (Aug. 20). The fall sports teams and numerous Fluco fans gathered at the back of the Fluvanna County facility at Pleasant Grove for a big march and pep rally to celebrate the beginning of the fall sports season.
The Fluco marching band and the dance squad led the way in the parade, followed by the cheerleaders and members of the football team, the volleyball team, the cross country teams, and the golf team. JV and freshman football teams were also included.
The fair was in progress at the time, so the parade moved past many vendor booths, providing additional spectators. There is plenty of room at the enormous Pleasant Grove facility. The Fluco parade took its participants past the pole barn at the rear of Pleasant Grove and out on to the broad field at the pole barn for the pep rally.
The rally was intended to drum up support for the fall season sports program. The varsity football team had its final pre-season scrimmage the next day, and it kicks off its season at home on Aug. 28. A large BBQ tailgate event, co-sponsored by the Fluco athletic department and the local Rotary Club, will precede that game.
The Fluco volleyball team starts its season on Sept. 3. The cross country teams have had one event already, but many major races are yet to come. Big multiple team events are coming up on Sept. 5 and Sept. 8 at FUMA and at Ragged Mountain.
The golf team is half-way done with its season. It has meets on Sept. 3, 8 and 9. The competition cheer squad does not have meets until October.
