  • Instructor Visits Fall Golfers

    Woodberry's fall golfers welcomed Andrew Rice to the Forest on September 26-28, 2014.  He came to Woodberry Forest on the invitation of Marc Hogan, the team's head varsity golf coach, who met Andrew in March when he attended a clinic in South Carolina. Andrew worked with the team and offered individual lessons using Trackman technology.  "I'm delighted he is here at Woodberry working with our golfers," Marc said.

  • Moubray Wear Icon Served Woodberry Forest for Fifty-Three Years

    Bobby Moubray, who came to work for Woodberry Forest School as the athletic department's equipment manager in 1961, concluded his service to the school in September, 2014. After his retirement in 1999, Bobby continued as a school driver for fifteen more years.

    Bobby is best known as the name behind Moubray Wear, the beloved athletic clothing issued to Woodberry's student athletes. "When my dad first started at Woodberry," said Janet Lewis, Bobby's daughter and Woodberry's director of summer programs, "the athletic director, Leonard Dick, had a process of stamping white t-shirts with permanent ink." At first, Bobby would stamp WFS on the shirts by hand. After a few years, gray shirts were adopted, and then, when Red Caughron became athletic director, the school began ordering screenprinted shirts. Sometime in the 1970s, a student started using the term "Moubray Wear" after Bobby and his brother, James, who distributed the shirts from a window in the Dick Gym basement.
