    Liberty and Jefferson Forest faced off on Sept. 5, with the Cavs ultimately coming out on top and claiming Bedford County bragging rights (they beat Staunton River on Aug. 24).

    The Cavs have been off to a tremendous start so far, only dropping one game to a tough Lord Botetourt squad. Liberty’s smaller team has definitely picked up momentum as the season progresses, continuously posting more competitive results.

    The Minutemen managed to take a set off the Cavs after dropping the first two, 25-17 each.

    Head Coach Chuck Poston had previewed the match up as tough considering Altavista had won multiple State titles in the last decade.

    But alas, Friday’s match up was anything but challenging for the Eagles, who steamrolled Atlavista.
