  • Bob Humphreys reflects on more...

    Bob Humphreys first got involved with baseball way back in 1944.

    He was listening to the radio broadcast of the 1944 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Browns and instantly became a fan of the Cardinals and their outfielder/first basemen, Stan Musial.

    “That was when I first started thinking about baseball and that I’d like to play ball,” said Humphreys. “I got a thing off the back of a Wheaties box about pitching... I think it cost me a quarter. That’s how I got started throwing the ball.”

    Jefferson Forest girls soccer couldn’t of dreamed of a more dramatic ending in the 4A West Region semifinal to secure a berth in the State championship.

    The Cavs had to wait until overtime, but it was worth the wait, as Erica Blankenship made her way through the defense and past the goalie to bury the winning goal with her left foot. She was immediately swarmed by over-joyed, estatic teammates, some of them who had waited since their freshman year to return to the 4A State championship.

    Liberty’s boys soccer team faced Brookville in the Conference 30 quarterfinals on May 22. The boys looked to best the Bees after splitting regular season contests with them.

    The Minutemen not only toppled Brookville, but they scored a season-high five goals on their way to a dominant 5-1 win.

    “The first half was a slow start to us but we put  together what was probably our best soccer in the second 40 minutes,” said Head Coach Eric Seckman. “Everything was clicking for us.”

  • Liberty softball comes up short...

    Liberty’s softball team was originally scheduled to play its Conference 30 semifinal bout on Tuesday, May 23, but inclement weather would push the game until Friday, May 26. 

    Due to the extreme weather delay, the Lady Minutemen were forced to play two games in one day for the conference championship. The squad’s day started at Tunstall at noon and finished at Heritage against Brookville.

    Liberty’s game against Tunstall started off smoothly, as Millie Thompson held her own in the circle with ten strike outs and zero runs scored.
