  • Following in their footsteps
      The Jefferson Forest baseball crew took time from its State playoff run to help the younger aspirants become familiar with the ways of the red and black diamondeers. Over 60 young (5-12 years old)ballplayers  headed to Jim Thacker Field for the Cavs’ second annual camp.  “We want to teach fundamentals,” said JF Head Coach Ryan Gilleland.  “If [the campers] can master them, they’re ahead of the game when they get to us.”
  • Memorial garden unveiled by Liberty softball
        There’s not typically a lot of love in evidence whenever the Brookville and Liberty softball teams square off on the diamond.     But Friday night’s game had a different tone to it.  At least at the start.     Prior to the contest’s start, the team announced the Heather Dooley Memorial Garden.  Sited behind the home team’s dugout, the garden brings a splash of color to the Liberty softball complex.
  • Purple Power
        Anybody with a lick of fashion sense will tell you that orange and purple do not go together.     Well, it does if the reason for the mix is a good one.     The orange-clad William Byrd baseball and softball crews headed to Staunton River to take on their purple-clad counterparts last Tuesday.     Purple?  Any Eagle fan worth his salt knows the school wears black and gold.
  • Cujo's quest continues
        He’s gotten around.  Now, Scott “Cujo” Sigmon will be lacing up his gloves for a bout that’s within a reasonable driving range for fans from Bedford County.     Sigmon, fresh off his Las Vegas adventure, will fight on June 20 at the Greensboro Coliseum, either at the facility’s Pavilion or at its Special Events Center.     He had hoped to be fighting in Las Vegas once again.  It appeared he had a fight lined up with Ronald Gavril.
  • What happens in Vegas....
      There’s an old saying in sports: “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” For Scott “Cujo” Sigmon, the saying could not have been more appropriate.  That’s because, due to his hard work both in and out of the ring, he’ll be boxing this Saturday night in a primo event. The skinny is that Cujo will go toe-to-toe with J’Leon Love at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.  Sigmon, who’s 24-6-1 (with 13 knockouts) will face an opponent who stands 18-1 (10 KOs).

  • 'Tis the season
      By Mike Forster sports@bedfordbulletin.com   Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.   The above quotation, often directed in a description of mail carriers, was equally apt this past Saturday. Neither gloomy skies nor rainy conditions could prevent nearly 400 couriers from the swift completion of their appointed trip 'round Bedford's famous Loop.
