When you have the reigning district player of the year on your roster, you rest easy.
They did it in football.
Why not in basketball?
Staunton River has certainly experienced a renaissance in its boys sports programs.
In August, Kim Jones brought home a third child to her and Greg’s home, with the birth of bouncing baby Janell.
She joined brother Kalip and sister Jayda.
The football gods smiled benignly upon the Minutemen.
Then, they got nasty.
Well, we didn’t see that one coming.
Jefferson Forest saw its spectacular volleyball season come to a close, as Cave Spring topped the Lady Cavs on their home court.
Snarled traffic on I-81 caused difficulties for the Staunton River faithful in their quest to reach Harrisonburg.
But that was nothing, compared with what the team faced on the field.
It’s nice to have that homefield advantage.
Therefore, the Minutemen ensured that nobody left early.
Indeed, everybody stuck around to see Liberty rebound from an Alleghany comeback.
“I love our parents!” exclaimed Jefferson Forest Head Coach Jerome Loy. “Our parents are the best in the state!”
They’re all big at this stage. The Golden Eagles may be facing their biggest opponent yet, this Friday.
Staunton River turns its attention to the Massanutten, where it will face that district’s champion, Harrisonburg.
“We’re not just some feel-good story anymore,” said Head Coach Chuck Poston, following his team’s 21-10 win over E.C. Glass.
He’d have gotten no argument from the Hilltoppers. As they loaded their buses for the trip back to Lynchburg, they were feeling anything but good.
