    It had been nearly a decade since a Bedford County school has hosted a track meet. This season Jefferson Forest, Liberty and Staunton River all received brand new surfaces on the tracks–ditching the asphalt tracks in favor of rubber surfaces.
      

     “A rubberized surface is easier on the legs, safer and faster,” Staunton River Head Coach Joe Curcio said.
        

  • Track and Field: April 11-14 Track Highlights

    Liberty- Minutemen basketball standout Roman Ridley continued his impressive performance on the track this week. Ridley won first place in the 100 meter dash at the All American Relays in Radford with a time of 11.25, which qualifies him for 3A state meet in June. Ridley also ran a 22.96 in the 200 meter dash to qualify him for states in that event as well.

    Students, coaches, faculty and staff of Staunton River gathered in the lobby of the Golden Eagles’ gymnasium to look on as Kalip Jones officially signed to become a Bluefield Ram.
        

    Jones excelled in both football and basketball but ultimately decided to continue his basketball career at the next level.
      

    “I like football but basketball is just my thing,” Jones said. “Basketball has been the thing I’ve loved ever since I was little.”
