They came from all over to play in the recent Virginia High School League’s Girls State Open golf tournament.

The field consisted of 63 players from more than 40 different high schools of all enrollment classifications – smallest to largest – from all corners of the Commonwealth.

The Girls State Open is unique in the sense it is the VHSL’s one single state event that has the most representation of different schools from around the state.  Other sports – like swimming and diving, wrestling, and girls gymnastics – also have many schools represented, but they are spread over different enrollment classifications.

In the Girls State Open, it was possible for players from all of the state’s six classifications to compete in the same competition. So golfers from faraway schools like Louisa County, Abingdon, Salem and Class 1 Castlewood and Lancaster were represented along with the likes of big Northern Virginia Class 6 schools Langley, Madison, Lake Braddock, Hayfield and Robinson.

The Girls State Open is a unique and neat event that way, hearing all types of Virginia accents.
