One of the reasons the Virginia High School League went forward with total state reclassification in 2013, overturning a system that lasted over four decades, was to offer more equal opportunity for schools, especially smaller ones located in larger metropolitan areas, giving them a postseason system where they could battle against teams from schools of their own size.
Still, the Green Dragons of Maggie Walker Governor's School had to endure a tough regular season schedule in the Colonial District, filled with powerhouse programs from a defending state champion (Glen Allen) to perennial favorites like Douglas Freeman, Deep Run and Mills Godwin. In the end, the experience served Maggie Walker well, as the Dragons went on a postseason to remember, climaxing with a second playoff win over new 2A rival Goochland for the 2A State Championship on June 11th at Radford University.
