They finished one stroke behind Loudoun County with a 298.

  • Eagles claim Bedford County...

    At the rate Staunton River is scoring, it’ll be a surprise if they don’t get more than 40 points a game.

    The Eagles (4-0) ran up the scoreboard once again, this time en route to toppling Liberty (2-1) 49-7 for the Bedford County Championship title.

    Staunton River had previously beaten Jefferson Forest in its home opener on Aug. 25. After beating the Minutemen on Sept. 15 on their home turf, the Eagles secured their place as Bedford County’s best team for the second year running.

    Jefferson Forest’s golf team secured their sixth consecutive Seminole District match win of the season over Liberty Christian Academy, Amherst, and Heritage at Ivy Hills GC on Sept. 5.

    The Cavs nearly dropped their first Seminole District match on Aug. 30 but squeaked out the win by one stroke thanks to Isaac Simmons’ clutch six-foot birdie on the ninth hole. This time, Forest garnered a more comfortable ten-stroke win. The Cavs shot a collective 145 to best LCA by ten strokes, Amherst by 21 strokes and Heritage by 84 strokes.

  • Liberty revives competition...

  • Cavalier Fishing Club reels in...

    Jefferson Forest’s Cavalier Fishing Club got off to an impressive start  by capturing first and seventh place at its first team tournament, the BNVA Youth HS South No. 1 at Philpott Lake on Sept. 10.

    This tournament was the first of three State qualifying tournaments held by Bass Nation Virginia (BNVA). The top five pairs of each tournament immediately qualify for the State tournament that feature teams from northern Virginia. In this tournament, the teams of two were given a five fish limit of 12 inches or better.

  • Lynsey Ball uses sports to...

    Lynsey Ball radiates positivity. In just a short, ten-minute conversation, Ball’s hyper, bubbly attitude is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face. You would never guess from her upbeat demeanor that Ball, a sophomore, three-sport athlete at Staunton River, has been battling cystic fibrosis (CF) her entire life.

  • JF continues to roll, Liberty...

    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.

  • Cavs fall in shootout with...

    Offense was the name of the game between Jefferson Forest and George Washington on Sept. 8.

    After trading touchdowns the entire evening, the game would ultimately be decided by a 38-yard kick by the Eagles with 11 seconds remaining.

    While the Cavs fell in the shootout, their offense put on a stellar performance against one of the toughest team in the areas, according to Head Coach Bob Christmas.

  • Staunton River wrecks Altavista

    The 72-7 scoreline of the Staunton River/Altavista game will make you scratch your head with disbelief.

    Yep, you read it correctly, the Eagles logged in a mind-boggling 72 points on Sept. 8 against the Colonels.

    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.
