CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia will be the title sponsor for two Virginia high school championships this year.

The resort will sponsor the Virginia High School League tournament March 6 through 10 at Virginia Commonwealth's Siegel Center, along with the Group AAA football championships in December.

In addition, VHSL member schools will help sell weekly badges to the PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic in July in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Schools will receive a portion of the proceeds.

Greenbrier owner Jim Justice has coached high school basketball for more than 25 years. He's taking his Greenbrier East girls team to the West Virginia high school tournament next week in Charleston, W.Va.
