Sports Notebook: Impressive year

Must Read

Following are the impressive numbers and results the four-time championship Madison High School football team posted during the two-season 2021 calendar year.

The first season was postponed and shortened because of COVID from the usual fall campaign in 2020 and played in February, March and April of 2021 instead. The second season was the full 2021 fall slate of games, which ran 16 weeks for Madison, including one regular-season bye and the five-week postseason, concluding Dec. 11.

Basically, including practice starting dates and preparation times, Madison’s overall football team involvement in 2021 touched parts of 10 months.

Combined, the Warhawks finished with a 21-3 overall two-season record, including the 13-2 mark this fall, which were the most single-season wins in program history.

Madison won Concorde District and 6D North Region championships in both season, and this fall finished second in the Virginia High School League’s Class 6 state tourney, losing in the Dec. 11 state final. The appearance was the Warhawks’ first in a state final. In April, Madison lost in the Class 6 state-tourney semifinals.

Madison’s defense was a standout in both seasons, combining for seven shutouts, and limiting opponents to seven points or fewer in eight other contests.

The Warhawks’ overall playoff record those two seasons was 6-2, including 5-0 in region action. Of Madison’s eight postseason contests, seven were at home. The team’s two-season home record was 14-1, including 9-0 this fall.

A very good and unique football year for sure from the Warhawks.
