  • Football Preview: Strong...

    Staunton River football’s hard work and dedication came to fruition last year, as the Eagles powered their way to the 3A State Championship final before falling short. This year, the Eagles are looking to claim the State title backed by an experienced, veteran senior class. Head coach Chuck Poston boasted his squad is the strongest he’s seen in nearly a quarter-century of coaching, and they’re ready to fight their way to the championship.

  • Football Preview: Cavaliers...

    Don’t let last year’s 2-8 record fool you, the Cavs are still competitive. After dropping six games while leading late into the fourth quarter, the predominantly underclassmen squad looks to flip last year’s record. Head coach Bob Christmas discusses how even though his squad may be young, they’re prepared to succeed.

    Last year didn’t go as planned, have you used what happened to motivate the guys for this year?

    Friday night football is inching closer as Bedford County’s high schools wrapped up their preseason play with a final scrimmage on Aug. 17-18.

    Liberty faced off against two teams; Galax and George Wyth at Pulaski. The Minutemen split their time between the two teams, playing a half against each opponent.

    Liberty’s head coach, Chris Watts, was pleased with what he saw and noted several improvements.

  • Bedford County's golf...

    As the majority of fall sports are just beginning, golf season is nearly halfway done.

    Bedford County’s high school golf programs have had great success thus far, with each capturing at least one top two finish.

    Jefferson Forest

    Jefferson Forest’s golf program, which has the most extensive schedule of the Bedford County high school teams, has been nearly unstoppable.

    The Cavs tallied five team wins in as many tournaments and claimed four individual wins as well.

  • Football Fever continues to rise

    Bedford County’s high schools (Jefferson Forest, Liberty and Staunton River) enjoyed their first taste of competition during scrimmages on Aug. 10-11.

    Jefferson Forest was the first one to suit up and take the field with a scrimmage against the Louisa Lions at Sabre Stadium.

  • Hoops-Kid inspires change

    For four weeks, Edmund Street Park was an oasis.

    That’s how MarTrey Stevens, one of Hoops-Kid three leaders, described the site of the newly revamped program that aims to teach youth participants important principles of life through basketball. 

    “Nothing else mattered to those kids on the basketball court,” said Stevens. "They don’t see color, they don’t see sex, they don’t see anything else. When we were at (Edmund Street Park), it was like our own little world... our perfect world of equality.”

  • 'Matt' of All Trades

    Matt Uselton, Liberty’s new head golf coach,  stepped into an unfamiliar role... or rather, sport, in June 2017. The English teacher has been coaching since the early 2000s, but is tackling the challenge of coaching his third different sport.

    Uselton’s athletic coaching career began at William Byrd in 2005 with boys varsity tennis. He also assisted with Byrd’s JV girls soccer team for a season. He then moved into Bedford County where he assisted Staunton River’s boys soccer team with former Liberty teacher, Kris McCoy.
