    Staunton River baseball has been on a tear as of late. Since losing to Jefferson Forest 3-1 on March 17 the Golden Eagles have not lost.
        

    The team officially started district play on Wednesday April 11 with a dominating 13-3 win over Fleming in five innings. Two days later the Golden Eagles traveled to Lord Botetourt to face off against the Cavaliers and picked up their second district win in three days with a 9-6 victory.

    Competing against Liberty Christian Academy and host school Heritage in doubles and singles the Cavaliers won everything, literally.

    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.

    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.”
        

  • Soccer: Liberty beats down Bees

    A Brookville beat down was in store at the Liberty Minutemen boys soccer team hosted the Bees.
        

    Liberty dominated from the start. Garrett Nicholas scored the first goal–unassisted–in the 12th minute for Liberty. 20 minutes later Brookville put the ball in their own net to give Liberty a 2-0 lead.
        

    Three minutes after Brookville’s own goal the Minutemen drew a penalty resulting in a penalty kick goal from Brandon Campbell to give Liberty a 3-0 lead at the half.
