Last week, Viking athlete Nick Fleming was announced as the AA Potomac Valley Conference (PVC) Player of the Year for his performance in golf. He was also announced an AA PVC golf team member.

Fleming was the only Petersburg High School student named this year. Others recognized were: Evan Matlick, Jacob Malcolm and Darrick Broadwater of Keyser High School and Jordan Miller and Carson Stotler of Berkeley Springs High School. The AA PVC golf team of the year was Keyser, with Frankfort High’s coach Bill Cessna named as the PVC golf coach of the year.

Fleming is a senior this year and competed for the fourth time at the West Virginia Sate Tournament.

Former Petersburg Viking Ryan Van Meter made waves last week when he secured the winning touchdown in the game against Wilmington University of Ohio.

Van Meter is a senior at Marietta State College and is originally from Maysville. He is a wide-receiver with Marietta and has been featured by the team for his outstanding athletic performances multiple times.

He is studying to be an intervention specialist.

While attending PHS, Van Meter was a three sport athlete, playing football, basketball and baseball. He earned 11 varsity letters, earned all-state, all-area and all conference honors in both football and basketball and was named most outstanding male athlete at PHS three times.

He is the son of Michael and Rhonda Van Meter of Maysville.
