    Thankful. That was one of the first words that came to the mind of Golden Eagles superstar Grayson Overstreet when looking back at this season.
     

    A historic season for Staunton River in which the team tied a school record for wins with 13 before falling just short of their ultimate goal of winning a state championship.

    The Liberty Minutemen boy’s basketball team hit the road, in search of their first win, and paid a visit to the Liberty Christian Academy Bulldogs.
     

    Liberty Christian is one of the top teams in the Seminole District and the Minutemen gave them all they could handle but it was not enough. The Bulldogs defeated the Minutemen 47-39.

    The stands filled to the brim on Saturday for the highly anticipated matchup between the Heritage Pioneers and the Staunton River Golden Eagles. Fans had to get to the stadium over two hours before kickoff to get a parking spot in the actual school parking lot and the grass surrounding the parking lot. The Pioneers were the only thing standing in the Golden Eagles way to get back to the Class 3 State Championship, where their season ended last season.

    In the Ospreys return to the court following Thanksgiving break the team put forth a dominant performance against Parkway Christian Academy.
     

    Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy doubled the Eagles score in a 64-32 victory.
     

    The Ospreys were in control the entire game and showcased their defensive ability by holding the Eagles to single digit scoring in all four quarters.
     

  • Running On

    Just keep swimming is a popular phrase from the movie Finding Nemo, the Staunton River Golden Eagles have tweaked that slightly. Instead of swimming they’re running the football down opposing defense’s throats.
     

    That trend continued against Blue Ridge District rival Lord Botetourt. Staunton River rushed for nearly 500 yards in a 49-31 victory over the Cavaliers.
     

  • Ospreys finish second in tournament

    The Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy Ospreys finished second in the New River Tip-Off tournament held last Saturday.
        

    The tournament was hosted by Dayspring Christian Academy in Blacksburg.
        

  • Staunton River's Offense Explodes

    Ordinarily, scoring 47 points in a playoff game should be enough to walk away with a victory. The Northside Vikings learned that playing Staunton River is far from ordinary. The Golden Eagles put up a jaw dropping 72 points in a 72-47 victory over Northside.
     

    In the first quarter Staunton River did what they do best, run the football. With, statistically, the best runner in VHSL history in their backfield they had good reason to do so.

  • Ospreys Open Season With Win; Get New Uniforms

    The Smith Mountain Lake Christian Academy varsity boys basketball team had quite an opening day last Tuesday, Nov. 14.
        

    The Ospreys players started the day receiving brand new uniforms—a surprise to them—and then went out and defeated New Covenant 60-50.
      

    The uniforms were won in a contest that 323 Sports hosted.
      

  • Golden Eagles Soar Past Cave Spring

    The cold did not stop the Staunton River Golden Eagles from soaring high over the Cave Spring Knights. The Golden Eagles scored 48 points in the first half en route to a 56-21 victory.
     

    T.J. Tester made the first mark on the scoreboard with a 37-yard interception return for a touchdown. Kalip Jones was next to find the end zone on a 2-yard run making the score 12-0. Tester scored the next two touchdowns on a 10-yard run and a 29-yard run. Tester finished with four touchdowns on the night, three offensive and one defensive.
