    The Liberty Minutemen were in search of their first win streak of the season as the team hosted Seminole District rival, the Liberty Christian Academy Bulldogs.

    Classes were cancelled because of the snow but the game must go on and the Bulldogs traveled out to Bedford. The Minutemen took down the Bulldogs 45-37 for their second consecutive win.

  • Lady Cavaliers top Lady Golden Eagles

    The Jefferson Forest Lady Cavaliers eclipsed the .500 mark with a win against Bedford County rival Staunton River. The Lady Cavaliers took down the Lady Golden Eagles 40-18 for their eighth win of the season.

    Jefferson Forest suffocated Staunton River in the first half. The Lady Cavaliers outscored the Lady Golden Eagles 27-5 in the first 16 minutes of play.

  • Sports Day-ly: Support Local Hoops

    We are officially on the homestretch of the regular season portion of this year’s basketball season. The recent snow days have impacted the scheduling to the point that some teams might have some pretty packed weeks going forward.

    So far this season has been an absolute joy to watch. I would like to take this time to encourage fans, students and faculty alike to experience that joy by going and watching the Bedford County teams play.

  • Bedford County swimmers in action

    The Liberty Minutemen took on Heritage and Northside on Jan. 12 at the Jamerson YMCA.

    Liberty’s girls team finished in first place scoring 149 points compared to 117 scored by Northside and 87 by Heritage.

  • Lady Minutemen take down Lady Cavaliers

    On the day of Liberty’s 2018 Hall of Fame class induction the Jefferson Forest Lady Cavaliers tried to play spoilers taking on the Liberty Lady Minutemen.

    Shantel Crowder and Rebecca Hensley had other plans as they combined for 35 of the Lady Minutemen’s 39 points in Liberty’s 39-30 victory over Jefferson Forest.

  • Ospreys go 3-0 on the week

    At the beginning of the week the Smith Mountain Lake Ospreys knew they had a tough week ahead of them. Four games were on the schedule for the Ospreys. The scheduled game for Jan. 8 against Southwest Virginia Homeschool was cancelled due to ice.

    That still left the Ospreys with three games, two road games–each game over two hours away– and one home game.

  • Cavaliers cruise past Minutemen

    Buckets came early and often for the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers. The Cavaliers spoiled the day for the Minutemen with a 75-40 victory.

    Before the game started Liberty honored their 2018 Hall of Fame class at center court. The Minutemen all sat court side to show support.

    It would have been logical to think that the Minutemen would start the game off with the hot hand but it was the Cavaliers that played that role.

  • Liberty stuns Staunton River

    Liberty’s second win of the season came in dramatic fashion as the Minutemen stunned the Golden Eagles with a 50-49 victory.

    This game was originally scheduled to be played on Nov. 27 but was rescheduled to take place on Jan. 15. The students were out of school because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day but the student support at the game would have suggested otherwise.

    The stands were filled with both Liberty and Staunton River students for the Bedford County matchup.

  • Liberty captures first win

    The start of 2018 could not have started any better for the Liberty Minutemen. After spending a few days in Florida to compete in a tournament the team returned home, still in search of its first win.

    With the Liberty band and Minutemen faithful in the stands to cheer the team on the stage was set for the Minutemen to find their first win. Seminole District rival Brookville was in town and not only did Liberty defeat the Bees it did so in dominant fashion winning 74-56.

    On Friday Jan. 5 Chuck Poston, Staunton River football Head Coach, announced that he would be stepping down after eight seasons.

    “It was a hard decision,” Poston said. “But now was the time.”

    Poston had been quietly thinking about stepping down for sometime, mainly to focus on other aspects of his life.
