Today's Sports

  • Wrestling white out

    For the first time in history, the same team won both the River Rumble and the Bedford Brawl.  And, no, it wasn’t Christiansburg or Brookville.

  • Rivermen swim strong

    Staunton River has rarely been accused of being a strong swimming school.

    That appears to have changed, starting with the boys team.

  • Top Ten stories of 2009: #10

     Our final story in the top ten was newsworthy, but hardly shocking.  Jefferson Forest continued its long run of excellence on the ball field, as both its baseball and softball teams had superb seasons.  The Cavs took home the Seminole crown by virtue of a 10-2 regular season record.  The Cavs would advance to the Regional semifinals, where they were ousted by Alleghany, 1-0.  The Lady Cavs, similarly, posted a 10-2 regular season mark.  That tied them with Brookville but, since JF beat the Bees t

  • Minutemen put down pesky Eagles
