High School

  • Soccer: Cavaliers down Minutemen on pitch

    All Jefferson Forest midfielder Josh Weakley needed was a little gap as he fired the first of his two goals, this one from about 20-yards out. The ball glided, just barely, over the outstretched arm of Liberty goalkeeper Micah Dudley bouncing off the crossbar and into the net in the second minute.
        

    Weakley scored two of the Cavaliers three goals–the first and the third–to help Jefferson Forest extend its winning streak to five games with a 3-0 victory over Liberty.

    The air was cold and crisp and the wind was fierce and painful during a softball rematch between Bedford County rivals Jefferson Forest and Staunton River.
        

    Jefferson Forest won the first matchup 3-2 to defend home field. Staunton River did the same Monday April 16. The Lady Golden Eagles were victorious 5-3.
        

  • District Track & Field

    Liberty- The Minutemen captured two solo district champions at the Seminole District Championship held at Heritage on Wednesday May 9 and Thursday May 10.
        

    Simeon Scott cleared a height of 6-02.00 to win the high jump. Scott’s mark was two inches above the state standard, although he had already qualified for states earlier in the year, and just four inches short of the meet record set a decade ago in 2008.

    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.
