  • Cavs split matches with Byrd and...

    All good things must come to an end. That includes Jefferson Forest’s volleyball team’s win streak.

    The Cavaliers continued to roll with a win over Byrd to open up it’s week. After a hiccup in the first set, the Cavs rebounded by sweeping the next three sets 25-19, 25-23, 25-23.

    JF’s gritty performance was highlighted by Bailey Tibbs and Sarah Shanton’s nine kills each. Sydney Strain produced seven kills while Gracyn Draney and Kelsey Gerni had four kills a piece.

  • JF, Liberty face off in Seminole...

    Liberty hosted Jefferson Forest, LCA and Brookville at Bedford CC for the fifth Seminole District match on Aug. 30.

    The Cavaliers looked to continue arguably the program’s best season with another District win. The Cavs have finished first at every match thus far except the High School Invitational in Midlothian, which featured elite talent from Class 5/6 high schools.

  • Staunton River, Liberty XC post...

    Staunton River and Liberty had impressive showings at Rush Farm on Aug. 30. Both schools had one first-place finisher at the meet. Rustburg also competed and was the host school of the meet.

    The Eagles found gold with Christiana Metric. The freshman logged a 21:26.68 in the 5000 m run to capture first place. Metric’s gold medal run was a whopping 24 seconds faster than the second place finisher.

  • Cavs stun Magna Vista

    Jefferson Forest’s football team successfully rebounded from its season-opener loss with an impressive come-from-behind win over Magna Vista on Sept. 1 at the Sabre Stadium.

    After the Cavs Aug. 25 loss, head coach Bob Christmas reiterated that he hadn’t lost faith in his team and believed they could win as long as they stayed focused and played hard.

    Despite a tough, front-loaded schedule, the Cavs win over Magna Vista makes for a promising year.

  • Staunton River obliterates Cave...

    Chuck Poston, the Eagle’s head football coach, said his team’s goal was to be 1-0 at the end of every week.

    So far, so good.

    The rainy conditions couldn’t slow the Eagles offense down as they recorded their second win of the season by destroying Cave Spring on Sept. 1, 66-21.

  • Extra Points: Two weeks notice

    As quickly as I arrived, I am leaving.

    In two weeks, I’ll be packing up my two-suitcases worth of belongs and moving to Boise, Idaho.

    Boise!? Yes. Boise. The city with that college that has that infamous blue football turf. I am moving there to support my boyfriend as he takes on his new job at Boise State.

    Now I will take the time to be as corny and cliche as possible:

  • Staunton River claims second...

    Staunton River golf played its fifth Blue Ridge District match on Aug. 22 at Blue Hills GC.

    The Eagles placed third in the BRD match up, just 12 strokes shy of William Byrd who placed second. Lord

    Botetourt, the BRD leaders for the entirety of the season, blew out the competition with a 315.

    It was the first BRD match the Eagles had not placed second in. Despite the third place finish, the Eagles still finished second in the rankings behind Botetourt.

    In the individual rankings, the Eagles placed three golfers in the top 10.

  • Cavalier golf remains undefeated...

    Jefferson Forest’s golf program is now a perfect four-for-four at Seminole District matches.

    The powerhouse program notched its sixth win this season at Winton CC against Liberty, Heritage and Amherst.

    The Cavs won by 15 strokes, shooting a collective 158 to top Amherst’s 173 for first place. Fellow Bedford County high school, Liberty, came  third with a notable 207, which is down three strokes from their last outing. Heritage placed fourth with 211.

  • County Clash Craziness

    Bedford County’s volleyball teams clashed early in the season, with Jefferson Forest and Liberty coming out victorious.

    The first County Clash was between the Cavs and the Eagles on Aug. 24 at Jefferson Forest.

    Prior to the match, the Cavs had rolled out to a promising 2-0 start, while the Eagles, headed by a first-year head coach, had dropped its season-openner to Heritage.

    The Cavs looked to continue to capitalize with their healthy squad against the youthful Eagles (SR’s team does not have a senior player).

  • 13 Bedford County football...

    Bedford County’s football programs were well-represented at the 2017 Titan Trophy Ceremony held at Phase 2 in Lynchburg.

    Jefferson Forest, Staunton River and Liberty each had multiple Titan Trophy Team nominees.

    The Cavs led with seven Titan Trophy team members (Will Strain, Jon Tobin, O.P. Peterson, Nick Rainey, Chris Peters, Chris Carroll and Brad O’Donnel). The Eagles had four members (T.J. Testor, Grayson Overstreet, Kalip Jones and Joe Haner) and Liberty supplied two (Brock Lucas and Malachi Johnson).
