  • Staunton River softball snaps...

    Staunton River softball snapped a three game slide this week by thrashing William Fleming 18-0 before the mercy rule came into effect.
        

    The Golden Eagles suffered its third straight loss to Lord Botetourt on Wednesday, but Head Coach Josh Weller remained optimistic about his team, noting that they were hitting well but not at the right spots. Thankfully, it all came together against the Colonels on Friday evening, as their bats were seemingly unstoppable.

    Less than four years ago, Madison Karnes was the No. 1 singles player for Liberty HS girls tennis team.
        

    Fast forward to today, the 21-year-old Liberty alumna is now the head coach.
        

    Liberty’s girls tennis program holds a special place in Karnes heart, as it was the place where she learned to play the game she describes as one of the biggest passions in her life.
        

  • Jefferson Forest baseball grabs...

    It was a busy week for Jefferson Forest’s baseball team, as they played three games in three days. The Cavs picked up two wins for the week, capping it off with a epic comeback win over William Monroe, the 2016 State 3A finalists.

    Jefferson Forest’s softball team couldn’t be stopped, as it drove in a stunning 33 runs combined between their April 26 game with Liberty Christian Academy and April 28 contest against Heritage.
        

    In its first game of the week, the Cavs exploded in the second inning with 13 runs. This big inning came as JF batted through its entire lineup twice. Marlie Hill, Olivia Fox and Skylar Jenkins all notched two hits in the second, with Hill and Fox grabbing two singles and Jenkins knocking out two doubles.
        

  • '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.

    What comes to your mind when you hear Airbnb?

    For me it’s: Potential death. Potential kidnapping. Horror stories used as plots in Criminal Minds episodes. PR nightmare. Allegedly doesn’t rent to minorities.

    Well, this past weekend I put my life at risk (yes, I’m dramatic) and stayed in my first Airbnb room. And although I am alive, it definitely was a unique experience to say the least.

  • Extra Points: 'Schooled...

    Small town life has rendered me a Netflix addict. And within my Netflix addiction, has developed a documentaries obsession.

    Since I’m a sports editor, my review will be about a sports documentary (non-sports documentary recommendation: The Imposter.) This past weekend, I struggled (you’ll see why) through Schooled: The Price of College Sports which is a documentary about why student-athletes should receive a salary.

    If I could rename this documentary I would call it: Schooled: When football players still find more to complain about.

  • Extra Points: Dear recent...

    Two weekends ago I travelled back to civilization, whoops, I meant Chicago, for my master’s graduation.

    I’m only 24, but walking across the stage to receive my second degree made me feel old and wise (I am neither) and got me thinking about what I should’ve done to maximize my college experiences.
