High School

  • SRHS breaks winless streak with 17-7 win over Liberty

         It may be just folklore, but many think of Friday the 13th as bringing bad luck.
        In the eyes of the Liberty football team, Staunton River might have added to that myth as they ended a 13-game winless streak by upsetting the Minutemen 17-7 under drizzling skies that hid a harvest moon.
        The game started fast as  the Golden Eagles scored twice in the first quarter on runs from Aiden Brown and Jayson Eanes to take a 14-0 lead.

  • Minutemen earn 21-20 comeback win with kicking game

        In a team sport like football, kickers often get an inordinate amount of attention when it’s up to them to win a game. For them, that can be good and bad.
        For Liberty’s Tony Mineo, you could say that things are probably pretty good this week.
        It began when Garrett Whorley scampered for a touchdown with 9:53 to go in the fourth quarter to knot the score 20-20 against Fort Defiance..
        All eyes then turned to sophomore Mineo to break the tie.

  • JF defeats SRHS 42-14 as Paul White era begins

        Jefferson Forest ended last season as a team that could score a lot of points. Unfortunately, they also gave up nearly as many which kept the team from fulfilling its potential.
        Under new head coach Paul White, the Cavaliers set out to show off a revamped defense that should put that reputation to rest.
        That showed as JF contained the Staunton River running game to win 42-14.

  • Liberty’s new look in girls volleyball

        While the 2019 season has barely started, fans have already noticed a new look in Lady Minutemen volleyball.
        The most visible change is in the coaching ranks where former Liberty player Katie Martin has returned to take the program’s reins. Martin, a graduate of Va. Tech, returns to Liberty after having coached in the Culpeper area last year.
        “I played JV my freshman year and then varsity volleyball until I graduated,” Martin said about her time in a Lady Minutemen uniform.

        The Eagles, which were averaging over 48 points per game going into this contest, held the Cavaliers scoreless before Blake Riddlebarger scored on a quarterback sneak with 21-seconds left before the half.

        Ask people what they did during their final year in high school and you’ll likely find that most will be hard-pressed to come up with a good answer.
        Direct that same question to JF football player Revely Keesee and you might be surprised at how  quick he’ll answer.
        “This time next year, I want to be at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point,” Keesee answered without hesitation.
