    The Golden Eagles knew they had their work cut out for them when they traveled to take on Northside (8-0, 2-0) on Friday, October 12.

    Northside, who has not lost a game since Staunton River ended their season in the VHSL playoffs last year, is just as good as their record states.

  • Football: Hilltopper too much for Cavaliers

    Jefferson Forest’s highly anticipated matchup with Seminole District and Region 4D rival E.C. Glass fell on October 12, one day off of the universally, spooky Friday the 13th. But, the result of Friday’s game may haunt the Cavaliers.

    Throughout the course of the season it has almost been routine for the Jefferson Forest Cavaliers to post lopsided scores that fit well in the category of blowout.
