Highland Springs running back Jordan Jackson (22) got a block from wide receiver Michael Hodge as he made his way to the end zone in the Springers’ April 2 road victory over Varina. The Springers have reached the Class 5 state semifinals, where they will face Maury on Saturday.

Highland Springs will play at Maury (Norfolk) in the state football semifinals Saturday at 2 p.m. in a matchup of schools that have won the past five Class 5 titles.

The Springers (8-0), the lone area team remaining in the playoffs, won four consecutive state titles (2015-18) before being eliminated in the regionals in 2019. Maury (6-1) claimed the 2019 title. The Virginia High School League delayed the fall 2020 season until this spring because of the pandemic.

Highland Springs has four shutouts and has yielded just 31 points. Maury’s loss was to Lake Taylor (27-14). The Springers beat the Commodores 71-28 in the 2018 semifinals.

The winner plays the William Fleming-Stone Bridge winner for the championship.

Other state tournaments also get under way this week in volleyball, field hockey, golf, and cross country.

In boys volleyball, Patrick Henry is trying to add to its state record four consecutive titles. The Patriots won a Class 5 state title in 2016 and have won the past three Class 4 titles.

The Deep Run boys are shooting for their fourth consecutive title in Class 5, and the James River boys are looking for their third consecutive state title in Class 6. The Rapids own the most boys championships with six.
