    It felt like Deja Vu for the Golden Eagles on Saturday. Entering the sixth inning of a rematch with Jefferson Forest tied 1-1 and the Cavaliers broke the tie in the sixth inning just as they had the week before. Only this time Staunton River responded in the seventh inning to win, in walk-off fashion, 5-4.

    Scoreless for two and a half innings, Jefferson Forest’s Madi Shannon stood in the batters box with a full count. The payoff pitch came in and went right back out. Shannon blasted a line drive deep and over the wall of center field, breaking the scoreless tie and ultimately being the difference in the game.
      

  • Baseball: Grant strikes out 15...

    Snow derailed most of Liberty’s scheduled games in the first few weeks of the season but the Minutemen took to the diamond on Friday March 23 to take on Heritage. Liberty dismantled the Pioneers in a 8-0 victory.
        

    Bryce Grant took the mound for the Minutemen and threw a ridiculous 15 strikeouts in six innings pitched. Allowing just one hit of the possible 18 outs for Grant to record on the mound, all but three were strikeouts.

    Garnet Manley III, a Sophomore at Jefferson Forest, finished 2nd in the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour Laurel Hill Junior Shootout. The tournament was held at Laurel Hills Golf Club in Lorton, VA, just outside of Washington, D.C.
        

  • Avery Dolan of Lynchburg...

    Chicago—Over the past nine months, tens of thousands of young athletes from across the country have stepped up to the line to show off their free throw skills through the Elks Hoop Shoot. Only six will become National Champions.
        

    Avery Dolan is one of 72 of the nation’s best free throw shooters ages 8 to 13. Avery’s hard work and dedication have taken her from Lynchburg to the Elks Hoop Shoot National Finals in Chicago.
        

  • Bowyer wins at Martinsville

    Starting in the ninth spot Clint Bowyer of Stewart-Haas Racing (Ford) had some ground to make up to come out victorious at Martinsville. Slowly but surely that is what he did, moving up during each stage. Weather pushed the race back a day to Monday March 26.
        

    “This is a place where I’ve gotten so close,” Bowyer said. “I wanted to win this grandfather clock (trophy) so bad. I got so close back in 2012.”
