Fall Sports Update
Cross Country
The cross country team completed their regular season at the Metro Conference Championship Meet on October 30. Sophomore Hope Frost defended her 2017 Metro Conference title by winning the girls varsity race, earning Metro Conference MVP status. Sophomore Trent Sivils earned his first Metro Conference title and MVP award, placing first in the boys varsity race. Junior Sofie Dudkovsky and 8th graders Tate Frost and Jimmy Buyrn each placed in the top ten of the varsity races, winning All-Metro Conference Team honors. Lucy Nunziata (7th grade) also won the girls JV race. As a team, the boys varsity placed second in the conference, qualifying to run at the VISAA State Championship Meet. The boys varsity team (Sivils, Tate Frost, Buyrn, Randy Bi, and Jonathan Stallings), Hope Frost, and Dudkovsky will compete at the state meet at Fork Union Military Academy on Friday, November 9.
Boys Soccer
The boys varsity soccer team completed their most successful season since 2009, finishing with a 8-9-1 record. Their 6-4 Metro Conference record placed them 3rd in the conference. The team will return 10 starters next season and should compete for a Metro Conference Championship. Sophomores Lucas Whitman and Sam Elliott, and junior Becton Topping (pictured) were named to the All-Metro Conference Team.

The JJV boys soccer team dealt with a rash of injuries and still finished with a 3-4 record. They look to build upon this strong foundation next season.
Girls Volleyball
The girls varsity volleyball team continued to raise the bar for private school volleyball in Hampton Roads, winning their 6th-straight Metro Regular Season Championship and 7th-straight Metro Tournament Championship while finishing the regular season with a 24-6 record. Junior Liz Reese was awarded Metro Conference Player of the Year, with junior Rachel Wingfield, sophomore Maddie Busby, and freshman Drew Williams joining her on the All-Metro Conference Team. The Cavs will look to win their third-straight VISAA State Championship, beginning with the quarterfinals on Wednesday, November 7, at StoneBridge (time TBA). The semifinals and finals will be played at King Abdullah Academy in Herndon, VA, on November 9-10.

The JV volleyball team finished their season with a 19-3 record and were runners-up in the Metro Conference. The young team also finished as runners-up in the highly competitive Endless Summer Tournament, proving that the future remains bright for SBS volleyball. The JJV volleyball team won the Metro Regular Season Championship and had an impressive 13-2 record. The team will look to repeat as champions next season.
Meet Eric Plumlee,
Chairman of the Board of Directors
Eric Plumlee serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors at StoneBridge School. A Hampton Roads native, he graduated from Cox High School before studying engineering at Virginia Tech and law at Regent University. Now, he is the owner and operator of Plumlee & Overton, P.C., a firm of five attorneys that handles family law, criminal law, civil litigation, corporate/business law, estate planning, real estate, and probate work.

Plumlee and his wife, Mandi, are parents to four girls, Allie (Class of 2017), Emmie (Class of 2018), Nattie (6th grade), and Libbie (4th grade). They were introduced to StoneBridge when they were invited to a fundraising banquet. At the banquet, they were impressed by the poise and eloquence of the speaker, a recent StoneBridge graduate, and decided to enroll Allie into the preschool program, officially joining the SBS community.  

Plumlee brings 21 years of legal and contract negotiation acumen to the Board of Directors and has a vision for the school that goes beyond the classroom and the campus: “My vision for StoneBridge School is that it will continue to produce academically exceptional students who love Jesus and who are bold in their expressions of faith. I want to see StoneBridge be more than just another Christian school producing academically competitive students. I want to see StoneBridge be known as a community of believers who embody the love of Christ, in word and in deed, and who make a meaningful impact throughout the Hampton Roads area.”
