  • Soccer: Lord Botetourt edges...

    The championship level atmosphere was apparent from the start, as it should’ve been. The Blue Ridge District’s two best teams collided with the winner taking the district lead, and likely the district championship.
        

    In the first matchup on April 13 Staunton River travelled to Lord Botetourt and the two teams battled it out to a tie. On Friday May 4 Lord Botetourt scored the lone goal and defeated Staunton River 1-0.

    “Life without a limb is limitless,” was printed on banners and apparel around the field at the Bedford Moose Lodge. To fans it’s a slogan but to the members of the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) it is a reality.
        

  • Baseball: Offensive outpouring...

    Two soulless baseballs are sitting outside of the ballpark where the fence meets the woods at Liberty Lake Park. The souls were completely intact when they left the   hand of the pitcher but Staunton River’s Eddie Blake and Liberty’s Nick Maxfield took them soon after. Both men smacked the life out of the baseball, both in the fifth inning and both two-run shots.
        

  • Baseball: Cherry goes deep twice...

    Jackson Cherry sent not one, but two balls out of the park in back-to-back innings for the Cavaliers in their 15-0 win over Liberty on Saturday April 28.
        

    The game was originally scheduled for late March but Mother Nature decided the game would be played on the final Saturday in April instead.
        

    Luke Fowler started the scoring for the Cavaliers in the first inning. Fowler singled to drive in Cherry from second for the first run of the game and move Hunter Morrison to third.
        

  • Softball: Mullins pitches...

    In the first game of a double-header between William Fleming and Staunton River on Thursday April 26 12 Lady Colonels stepped up to the plate and 12 Lady Colonels walked away from the plate without reaching a base. They were not match for Brooke Mullins.
        

    All Mullins needed for perfection was 40 pitches in four innings with eight strikeouts. The defense behind her did the rest.
        

  • Softball: Thompson throws no-no...

    With two outs and two strikes Millie Thompson needed one more pitch to end the night with 4-0 victory for the Lady Minutemen.
        

    Thompson delivered the pitch and the game was over. Thompson’s twelfth strikeout of the night not only ended the game but secured a no-hitter.
