  • Cavs stun Magna Vista

    Jefferson Forest’s football team successfully rebounded from its season-opener loss with an impressive come-from-behind win over Magna Vista on Sept. 1 at the Sabre Stadium.

    After the Cavs Aug. 25 loss, head coach Bob Christmas reiterated that he hadn’t lost faith in his team and believed they could win as long as they stayed focused and played hard.

    Despite a tough, front-loaded schedule, the Cavs win over Magna Vista makes for a promising year.

  • Staunton River obliterates Cave...

    Chuck Poston, the Eagle’s head football coach, said his team’s goal was to be 1-0 at the end of every week.

    So far, so good.

    The rainy conditions couldn’t slow the Eagles offense down as they recorded their second win of the season by destroying Cave Spring on Sept. 1, 66-21.

  • Extra Points: Two weeks notice

    As quickly as I arrived, I am leaving.

    In two weeks, I’ll be packing up my two-suitcases worth of belongs and moving to Boise, Idaho.

    Boise!? Yes. Boise. The city with that college that has that infamous blue football turf. I am moving there to support my boyfriend as he takes on his new job at Boise State.

    Now I will take the time to be as corny and cliche as possible:

  • Staunton River claims second...

    Staunton River golf played its fifth Blue Ridge District match on Aug. 22 at Blue Hills GC.

    The Eagles placed third in the BRD match up, just 12 strokes shy of William Byrd who placed second. Lord

    Botetourt, the BRD leaders for the entirety of the season, blew out the competition with a 315.

    It was the first BRD match the Eagles had not placed second in. Despite the third place finish, the Eagles still finished second in the rankings behind Botetourt.

    In the individual rankings, the Eagles placed three golfers in the top 10.

  • Cavalier golf remains undefeated...

    Jefferson Forest’s golf program is now a perfect four-for-four at Seminole District matches.

    The powerhouse program notched its sixth win this season at Winton CC against Liberty, Heritage and Amherst.

    The Cavs won by 15 strokes, shooting a collective 158 to top Amherst’s 173 for first place. Fellow Bedford County high school, Liberty, came  third with a notable 207, which is down three strokes from their last outing. Heritage placed fourth with 211.

  • County Clash Craziness

    Bedford County’s volleyball teams clashed early in the season, with Jefferson Forest and Liberty coming out victorious.

    The first County Clash was between the Cavs and the Eagles on Aug. 24 at Jefferson Forest.

    Prior to the match, the Cavs had rolled out to a promising 2-0 start, while the Eagles, headed by a first-year head coach, had dropped its season-openner to Heritage.

    The Cavs looked to continue to capitalize with their healthy squad against the youthful Eagles (SR’s team does not have a senior player).

  • 13 Bedford County football...

    Bedford County’s football programs were well-represented at the 2017 Titan Trophy Ceremony held at Phase 2 in Lynchburg.

    Jefferson Forest, Staunton River and Liberty each had multiple Titan Trophy Team nominees.

    The Cavs led with seven Titan Trophy team members (Will Strain, Jon Tobin, O.P. Peterson, Nick Rainey, Chris Peters, Chris Carroll and Brad O’Donnel). The Eagles had four members (T.J. Testor, Grayson Overstreet, Kalip Jones and Joe Haner) and Liberty supplied two (Brock Lucas and Malachi Johnson).

  • Liberty claims win in home-opener

    Liberty’s football  team manhandled Franklin County to come away with the 33-17 win for its season-opener on Aug. 25.

    The Minutemen squashed any doubts or uncertainty that the small, youthful squad stocked of juniors and freshmen would struggle to compete.

  • Staunton River bests Jefferson...

    Staunton River and Jefferson Forest met in a highly anticipated home opener on the Eagles’ turf on Aug. 25.

    It was expected to be a neck-in-neck, fight to the death type game, and it certainly lived up to the hype, but the Eagles’ more experienced team capitalized on an injured Cavalier squad who was forced to put in several second and third string players.
