    Liberty/Staunton River

    Liberty and Staunton River’s cross country programs met once again at the Rockbridge XC Classic on Sept. 23.

    The meet featured 17 teams (including LHS and SR) and took place in Lexington, Va. The fields were fairly large, boasting 117 female runners and 140 male runners in the varsity 5,000 m races.

    Juan Salgado continued to be Liberty’s top runner after capturing a team-highest 20th place on Saturday. Salgado’s 18:40.02 run was just less than a second off 19th place.

  • Jefferson Forest's...

    The Jefferson Forest Cavaliers faced their biggest test yet when they took on the Blacksburg Bruins, literally. The Bruins had a number of players standing over six feet tall and two future NCAA Division I players.
     

    In the end the Bruins were too much to handle and took the Cavaliers down 3-1.
     

  • The Bruins Prove too Much to...

    It had been over 27 years since the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers and Blacksburg Bruins had met face to face on the gridiron. On Nov. 10 they snapped that streak meeting in the first round of the Group 4A VHSL playoffs–a game that was far less climatic than the Cavaliers were hoping for.
     

    Blacksburg scored three touchdowns in the first quarter and cruised to a 54-6 victory over the Cavaliers, ending Jefferson Forest's season.
     

  • Heritage Ends Liberty's...

    The Liberty Minutemen found themselves on the wrong side of another fantastic performance from the Heritage Pioneers and running back Elijah Davis.
     

    Fog covered the field before the players came onto the field. Once the game started the fielded resembled the graveyard scene from "Remember the Titans" only instead of gravestones there was players.
     

    Heritage put their full offensive talent on display in a crushing 69-7 victory over Liberty, ending the Minutemen's season.
     

  • Cavaliers Crush Rustburg

    Jefferson Forest found itself back in the win column following a 56-20 win over the Rustburg Red Devils.

    The score was impressive for the Cavaliers considering the team is missing eight  two-way starters with three out of their four starting running backs out with injury. Perhaps more impressive is that the team piled up over 600 yards rushing despite all of those injuries.

    Three Cavaliers players finished with over 100 yards on the ground. Senior running back Hunter Millner led the team with 192 yards on 12 carries.

  • Golden Eagles roll over Fleming

    The Staunton River Golden Eagles took to the road to maintain their perfect season traveling to William Fleming to take on the Colonels.

    Calling the performance the Golden Eagles put on display 'dominant' might not do it justice. Staunton River's defense pitched a shutout and obliterated the Colonels 58-0 to move to 9-0 on the season.

    "Our goal is to be 1-0 at the end of every week," Head Coach Chuck Poston said.

  • Liberty can't hang on

    A strong start for the Liberty Minutemen against top-ranked Brookville quickly faded and the Minutemen were unable to hold on in a 49-21 loss to the Bees.

    Liberty opened the game with a surprise onside kick that they recovered to get their offense on the field first. Starting around midfield the Minutemen drove down the field taking almost five minutes off the clock.

    The drive was capped off with a nine-yard touchdown run from junior quarterback Alladdin Elroumy.

  • Sports Day-ly: D.C.'s Curse

    By: Denton Day

    A few years ago I was not the kind of guy to believe in any sort of sports curse. The idea was silly to me.

    Yes I recognized that the Cubs had not won a World Series in a century and that Cleveland had not won a championship in over 50 years.

    I still did not believe. Funny how your opinion can so easily change once something has a direct impact on you.

  • Cavaliers Swat Bees on Senior...

    The Jefferson Forest Cavaliers continue their dominance on the volleyball court and extend their win streak to nine game following a 3-1 victory over the Brookville Bees on Oct. 12.

    The Cavaliers started the night by celebrating the accomplishments of their three seniors Bailey Tibbs, Lisa Romanzak and Emery Mcconnville.
