Robotics team nets honorable mention

Businessweek.com on where to raise kids

By Maggie Jackson Special to The Local

Dec. 4 and 5 were busy days for the Stonewall Jackson Robotic Rebels. The team, sponsored by Matthew D’Ascoli, science teacher at SJMS, competed and succeeded in the First Lego League regional competition on Oct. 30, thus moving on to the weekendlong FLL State Championships at James Madison University. First Lego League is an organization that started 10 years ago with only a few Robotics teams, and has continued growing throughout the years. At the Regional Competition, the Robotic Rebels tied for first place with another middle school’s Robotics team, and the Robotic Rebels made it to the Statewide Robotic Competition, competing alongside 97 other Robotics teams throughout Virginia. The Robotic “It came Rebels competed as a shock to against 97 ever ybody, other teams we knew they at the state event. worked hard, but even they didn’t think they would go that far,” parent Chris Jackson said.

practicing for State Championships. Every Tuesday, Ryan Lucia, Cal Costic, Alec Dalton, Jordan Gibson, Andy Jackson and Seth Peacock would stay after school for a few hours to perfect their projects, and occasionally they would get together on the weekend to continue building. Finally, when the time came to show the judges what the team had put together, the boys and their families ventured out to Harrisonburg for State Championships. The FLL State Championships lasted two days; Saturday, Dec. 4, was primarily a day for organization and practicing within the teams, but they began their rounds of judging in the afternoon.

The Robotic Rebels began their journey by acting out a skit, which introduced an optical enhancer which would allow people to see 50 times farther than they would normally. Later that day, the team was judged on teamwork. Judges scored them on how well they could work together efficiently and professionally while they performed a timed improvisation task. “I thought the teamwork judging was interesting because it counted for our score as much as the robot did, and we didn’t even practice for it,” Costic said. After a good night’s rest, the Robotic Rebels set their eyes on the prize for the

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

MCEF food pantry needs your help again In September, two representatives of the Mechanicsville Churches Emergency Functions (MCEF) food pantry at the Episcopal Church of the Creator at 7159 Mechanicsville Turnpike sent out a plea to the community because their cupboards were bare. This problem has risen again. A volunteer called last week asking for help from the community. She said the story in late summer did spark needed support. That day, a post about the recent crisis was placed on our Facebook page and there was response. While Carolee Stuckey and Pam Gardner said a summer slowdown isn’t unusual, the need for food pantries has increased with the economic downturn we have been experiencing. Lisa Medina, in her call last week, echoed Carolee and Pam regarding the increase in need. The volume in November and December was high. Overall, Carolee had said food pantries were “in real trouble.” However, rather than the norm of getting back on track when school starts, MCEF’s operation has found itself sending out a request for donations again. Can you help? If so, please drop off items between 9 a.m. and noon at the Episcopal Church of the Creator. In addition to food, toiletry items are needed at the food pantry. MCEF’s food pantry is open from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Monday and Tuesday and 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. Monetary donations also are welcome. Checks can be sent to MCEF at P.O. Box 604, Mechanicsville VA 23111.

But the legislative process has been paralyzed, not just slowed down. While an overwhelming majority of Americans might want a particular bill pushed through the Congress, one senator might see fit to run afoul of the national will. This state of affairs is clearly preposterous. The Founding Fathers sought to protect minority rights by giving certain powers to those in Congress in the minority, not to protect the pocketbooks of select congressmen and women. No American, save the particular congressman and his corporate friends, benefits from the polarization that has become a permanent feature of our U.S. Congress. I hope that as my senators, Mark Warner and Jim Webb, will vote on your first day in Washington in 2011 to fix the Senate and get America working again. Daniel Carawan Richmond

The right way to obtain citizenship in the U.S. Our president was very disappointed that the “Dream Act� didn’t pass during the lame duck session of Congress. Many people that have been in our country illegally for many years are also disappointed. Many of these “Illegals� came to America

as a child and subsequently have attended our schools, have taken advantage of our health care system, and have lived in American homes over these numerous years. These “Illegals� are saying that, since they have lived in America for all these years, they should automatically be declared American citizens. I’m sorry to have to report to these “Illegals� that this is not the way you attain citizenship in this country, unless you were born here. This is, however, what the “Dream Act� would do if it had passed. Our president is only disappointed because these “Illegals,� if they could vote, could mean a carload of votes for him in 2012. Nice try, Mr. President, but you will have to try some other underhanded way to get the votes you need. These “Illegals,� if they truly desire American citizenship, will have to attain it the correct way through the proper channels as outlined by the State Department. Immigrants, that have gone through this process and have received their citizenship, will tell you that it isn’t easy; but once the oath of allegiance is taken, you are not only a citizen “on paper,� but will also feel like a citizen in your heart with a great respect for our country and our Constitution. The defeat of the “Dream Act� was, therefore, a victory for these immigrants and all persons who were born in the United States. In other words: a victory for America! Gary Allen Colonial Heights

Students studying landscaping at Hanover High School planted trees, shrubs and flowers at the new Heart Havens home in Ashland.

hirteen Hanover High School students studying landscaping, along with their teacher Adrian Austin, took a working field trip to Ashland. They planted trees, shrubs and flowers surrounding the Ashland Heart Havens home on Friday, Nov. 19. The Ashland Heart Havens house, located on North Snead Street in Ashland, will provide an opportunity for five adults with intellectual disabilities to live in an atmosphere of supported independence while establishing strong connections to the community. It has taken more than a village to build this Heart Havens home. The home would not have been possible without the partnership and support of Hanover Community Support Services, Hanover Community Services Board, Hanover County and members of the Ashland District United Methodist Church, along with members of the community and community organizations. Heart Havens provides for the residential

needs of adult individuals with intellectual disabilities, regardless of their age, race, gender or religious preference, through the development of group homes throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Heart Havens currently manages 11 homes and supports 51 individuals across Virginia. For more information about Heart Havens, visit the website at www.hearthavens.org or call 1-877-442-8368.

A holiday dinner for seniors Photo courtesy of Hanover County Sheriff’s Office

With a generous contribution from the Mechanicsville Rotary Club, the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office delivered Kroger Thanksgiving meals to 21 senior citizens who have been “adopted” by patrol deputies as part of the Triad Adopta-Senior program. The meals included turkey with all the fixings and dessert. The dinners were picked up at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 24, at the Kroger in the Rutland Shopping Center in Mechanicsville. Deputies, armed with their meals, then traveled across the county to deliver their packages and shared some fellowship with their “adopted” senior. Seniors who take part in the Sheriff’s Office’s Adopta-Senior program do not have family nearby and need a little extra attention. Deputies who adopt a senior check on their senior during their work week to ensure their welfare. For more information on the program, call Deputy Jim McLaughlin at 365-6335 or 396-0540.

245 seniors receive scholars honor

Superintendent: students recognized for embracing challenge, seizing opportunity Two hundred forty-five seniors from Hanover County’s four high schools were honored on Nov. 22 at Hanover High School as 2010-2011 Hanover Scholars. Joining in the celebration were members of the Hanover County School Board, parents and school district staff. “This event is designed to congratulate these students for the manner by which they have embraced challenge and seized opportunity,” Dr. Stewart D. Roberson, superintendent of schools, said. In the tradition of the program, each of the Hanover Scholars honored a Hanover educator who significantly influenced his or her academic success. A total of 136 teachers and counselors from grades K-12 were recognized as Honored Educators. Hanover Scholars are recognized under the following criteria: ✏ The student is enrolled in and attending Hanover County Public Schools prior to the end of the junior year and meets one or both of the following: ✏ Has earned a cumulative grade point average at the end of the junior year, including summer school grades, of 4.0 or better; and is enrolled for the current school year (senior year) and/or has taken a total of at least four weighted credit courses from

Renegade Gardener to present seminars Don Engebretson, “The Renegade Gardener”, is scheduled to present two seminars at the inaugural Virginia Home & Garden Show on Saturday, Jan. 15, and Sunday, Jan. 16, 2011, at The Meadow Event Park in Doswell. He has appeared on HGTV for four seasons as the gardening expert on “TIPical MaryEllen,” and he has been the on-camera landscaping expert on PBS TV’s HOMETIME program. “I want to help gardeners severely limit the staggering failure part of the gardening equation”, Engebretson said. “Gardening can be fun, soothing, enriching and all of that, but don’t always believe it when you see a landscaping project described as easy or foolproof. Gardening is a lifelong learning process and failure is part of journey.” The Top 10 Gardening and Landscaping Blunders and How to Avoid Them seminar is a compilation of do’s and don’ts that every gardener should know. To make Engebretson’s top 10 list, three important criteria apply: first, it must be a common mistake, as common as crabgrass. Second, the blunder must impart a truly gruesome effect on one’s landscape. Third, and, according to Engebretson, the most important, it must be a blunder that he personally has made at least twice during his 20 years as a gardener. “The Renegade Gardener” also will be conducting a

workshop on Crafting Cool and Creative Containers, which is a hands-on demonstration sharing his tips on ways to use containers and planters throughout one’s landscape. People will learn design secrets that gardening pros use, such as shopping for interesting and unique containers at antique shops, what plants and other materials to buy, plant placement, and how to keep containers going through a long growing season. “I love traveling across the country and presenting to the public – showing them that gardening is simple, yet not always easy,” Engebretson said. “I love getting people excited about gardening . . . and seeing the light bulb come on!” In addition to his on-camera appearances, Engebretson is field editor, writer and garden scout for Better Homes and Gardens magazine. He also writes the perennial column for Northern Gardener magazine, and he is a contributor to Midwest Living, Garden Deck & Landscape, The Seattle Times, and numerous other publications. The Renegade Gardener’s Seminars are as follows: ❍ 12 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15 — Top 10 Gardening Blunders. ❍ 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15 — Crafting Cool and Creative Containers. ❍ 12:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16 — Top 10 Gardening Blunders. see RENEGADE, pg. 17 `

Relay For Life needs volunteers The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is seeking volunteers in Western Hanover – walkers, cancer survivors, caregivers, community leaders, anyone wanting to make a difference – to organize and recruit fundraising teams, garner community support, coordinate logistics, seek refreshments and prizes, plan entertainment and lend a hand to ensure the success of the 2011 event. The next volunteer committee meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18, at the Richard S. Gillis Jr./Ashland Branch Library at 201 S. Railroad Ave. in Ashland. The meeting will begin the planning process for the Western Hanover Relay For Life event, which supports the American Cancer Society’s mission of saving lives by helping people stay well, by helping

people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back against the disease. Relay For Life events are held overnight as individuals and teams camp out at an athletic track, park or other gathering area, with the goal of keeping at least one team member on the track or pathway at all times throughout the evening. Teams do most of their fundraising prior to the event, but some teams also hold creative fundraisers at their camp sites during Relay. Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life – all aimed at celebrating the lives of those who have had cancer, remembering those lost, and fighting back against the disease. “Relay For Life is all about

our community uniting with the American Cancer Society and supporting its efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” Faith Van Goor, Relay For Life cochair, said. “Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let Western Hanover know that cancer can be defeated.” If you would like to join the Relay For Life in Western Hanover as a volunteer or team participant, e-mail Faith Van Goor at fvangoor@gmail.com, call Andrea Fravel at 527-3712, or visit www.RelayForLife.org/ hanover. The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer.

As a global grassroots force of more than three million volunteers, the American Cancer Society fights for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. Lives are saved by helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. To learn more about the American Cancer Society, or to get help, call, day or night, 1-800-227-2345 or visit cancer. org.

Your first step is making a family emergency plan. Get a free worksheet at www. ReadyVirginia.gov. Discuss with your family:

✓ Who is our emergency point of contact? Choose an out-of-town friend or relative to be your contact. During emergencies, it’s often easier to make long distance calls.

Church enjoys season with caroling and s’mores

Air Force Airman 1st Class William S. Seay graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force. Seay is the son of Willie Seay of Mechanicsville. He graduated in 2010 from Hanover High School.

Northside Baptist Church celebrated the Christmas season family style with a night of Caroling and S’mores on Dec. 12. While originally slated as an outside event around a bonfire, rain moved the celebration inside. “We’ll be back again next year with Caroling and S’mores,” Dr. Jeff Scott, senior pastor, said. “It is such a fun way to promote family, faith and fun.” The church’s Christmas celebration also included a Christmas Eve service that featured area musicians and a live nativity.

you can’t get there. Your neighborhood meeting place may be a friend’s house on the next street. A meeting place outside your neighborhood may be a nearby church, store or another friend’s home. ✓ Do our schools have emergency plans? If you are a parent, ask your schools and daycare providers about their emergency plans. Find out how they will communicate with families during a crisis. Ask if they are prepared to stay in school if necessary and where they plan to go if they must leave. Winter has barely begun, but it has brought frigid temperatures to Virginia. Here’s what you should know about staying safe and about being prepared for winter emergencies: ✓ If power goes out and you have no heat: You’ll need blankets or sleeping bags for warmth in as few as four hours after power is out, depending on your home’s insulation. Dress in several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight clothing, and wear a hat and mittens. ✓ If you use kerosene or propane heaters: These should be used with much caution. The room must be ventilated by opening a window. Keep heaters at least three feet away from flammable objects such as

and perseverance at their high school,” Joe Schumacher, chief executive officer for Goddard Systems Inc., said. “We know we have many alumni who meet the criteria and we are excited to recognize the recipient of this prestigious award.” The Anthony A. Martino Memorial Scholarship is named in memory of the founder of The Goddard School, an entrepreneur who started several other wellknown franchise companies, including

curtains, blankets and furniture. Place heaters on a hard surface, not on carpet. Refuel them outdoors after they have cooled. ✓ If the power is out and you need information: Be sure you have a battery-powered radio with extra batteries. Get one with a weather radio band so you can hear reports from the National Weather Service and your local radio stations. Find these at electronics and sporting goods stores, department stores, from catalogs and online. ✓ If you can’t get out, you’ll need supplies: Stock at least a three-day supply of food that doesn’t need refrigeration or electricity to prepare. You may also need water — three gallons per person will last three days. Be sure to have flashlights and extra batteries on hand. Don’t use candles during power outages. ✓ If you must drive during a winter storm: Most traffic crashes happen within two hours after a storm starts. Try to stay off the road to give snowplows time and space to work. Wait until daylight to drive so sunlight can warm the roads. Get road conditions by calling 511 or go to www.511Virginia. org. Buckle up every time you drive. Go to www.ReadyVirginia. gov and www.Ready.gov for more about preparing for winter weather and other emergencies.

Floragraph for Franky featured in Rose Parade Coping with the loss of a loved one is never easy, and for the family of 14-year-old Robert Franklin Shim “Franky” Hazelgrove, this was no exception. When Franky passed away in April 2008, his family made

the difficult decision to donate some of his organs. For Franky and his family’s generosity, he was honored with a floragraph – a portrait made of floral and natural materials – that was featured on the Donate Life float entry in the 122nd

annual Rose Parade on Jan. 1. On Friday, Dec. 10, Franky’s family gathered at Woody Funeral Home to put the finishing touches on his floragraph. “It isn’t easy, but creating this tribute to Franky allows our family to feel a sense of closure,” Paul Hazelgrove, Franky’s

uncle and market director for the Dignity Memorial providers in Richmond, said. “Knowing that Franky lives on through his donations reminds us that this is what he would have wanted.” During the decorating event, Franky’s family and friends gathered around his floragraph,

The event was an emotional one, full of both smiles and tears. Franky’s mother shared stories about what a good son he always was and how he always did what he was told. Franky was known by his friends and family as a giving person who found joy in helping others. He enjoyed playing clarinet in the Lee-Davis High School Marching Band and going to Sunday School at Black Creek Baptist Church in Mechanicsville. His life was all cut short when he was struck by a car in mid-April 2008 while crossing the street to buy gasoline in order to mow the lawn. Decorating his floragraph is one way that Franky’s family and friends can make peace with their loss. Between laughter, tears and memories, Franky’s family and friends finished decorating his floragraph, which was shipped to Pasadena, Calif., to join 59 other floragraphs on the Seize the Day Donate Life float. When Franky’s loved ones watched the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day and saw his floragraph on the Donate Life float, they were reminded that he still lives on in those whom his donations have given a second chance at life.

100’s Lined up Yesterday at the Ramada Plaza for The Vintage Guitar Show. By Bryan Durbin STAFF WRITER The International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any and all guitars. Those that do bring in their guitars will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their items looked at with an expert set of eyes. With the help of these IVGCA members, offers will be made to those that have vintage and modern guitars. Highest prices are paid for those made before 1970. All guitars will be examined and purchased including vintage guitars, acoustic guitars, banjos, any and all other types of musical instruments. Those that decide to sell their items will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have an old Vintage Guitar lying around. If you have ever wondered what it’s worth, now might be your chance to find out and even sell it, if you choose. Vintage guitars could be worth a lot according to the International Vintage Guitar Collectors Association also known as IVGCA. Collectors will pay a fortune for Vintage Guitars, Banjos, Acoustic Guitars and even Drum Sets for their collections. If they are rare enough, one could be worth over $100,000 according to David Mcintosh, Vintage Guitar Collector and IVGCA member. One 1960 Gibson Les Paul went for $100,000 to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable guitars are stashed away in attics, closets, basements, or in a garage around the country. The IVGCA and its collectors have organized a traveling event in search of all types of Vintage Guitars and Instruments. “Even common guitars can be worth a significant amount due to high collector demands,� says Mcintosh. The rarest guitars these collectors are looking for include: Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Rickenbacker. These guitars always bring big premiums according to the IVGCA. While the IVGCA’s specialty is guitars, they are also examining other instruments, including drum sets, banjos, flutes, clarinets, etc. The IVGCA says, “You never really know what you have until your item is evaluated by experts.� Whatever kind of instrument you may have, bring it in to our experts. Think about it. You could walk away $100,000 richer!� So, whether you have one instrument you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If you’re lucky, you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way, there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun.

Health officials promote hotline to quit smoking Writer, director, With 2011 fast approaching, Virginia Secretary of Health and Human Resources Dr. Bill Hazel and State Health Commissioner Dr. Karen Remley are encouraging Virginia smokers to ring in the New Year by ringing up 1-800-QUIT-NOW, Virginia’s free 24-hour hotline to help smokers kick the habit. “This New Year’s, we hope that Virginians who smoke will take the opportunity to make a resolution to quit smoking and live longer, healthier lives. This is the best gift you can give yourself and your family this holiday season,” Hazel said. Thanks to a two-year, $280,452 federal Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW) grant, the Virginia Department of Health recently expanded its 1-800-QUIT-

VIRGINIA hotline to offer free, ongoing phone counseling sessions for any smoker age 13 and older in Virginia. Qualified English- and Spanish-speaking counselors are available to offer advice and referrals to help smokers quit 24 hours a day, seven days a week. “Don’t get discouraged. It takes smokers an average of seven times to quit,” Remley said. “Quitting isn’t easy, but 1-800-QUIT-NOW can help you take the first step to living a happier, healthier, longer life.” Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. More than 450,000 people die of smoking-related causes in the U.S. each year. In Virginia, more than 10,300 Virginians die

As of Jan. 1, Hanover County dog owners are able to buy individual dog tags that are good for one, two or three calendar years, provided that the dog’s rabies vaccination is good through that period. For example, you will be able to buy a three-year dog tag that would cover your dog through Dec. 31, 2013, as long as your dog’s rabies vaccination does not expire before Jan. 1, 2013. A three-year dog tag will cost $15. A two-year tag will cost $11. All tags will be good through the end of that calendar year. The cost of a one-year dog tag will remain $6 if issued before June 30. If you do not need a dog tag until after July 1 of any year, the price of a one-year dog tag would be $3. Kennel licenses are unaffected by this change.

Hanover takes Hawk Duals for first time

By JP Beauchamp Special Correspondent A packed gymnasium kept the excitement high during the 16-team Hawks Duals Invitational last Thursday at Hanover High School. The nearly 13-hour event culminated with Hanover claiming its first win in the event since its inception in the fall of 2003. In the bracketing, the Hawks were matched up with J.R. Tucker, Salem, New Kent and Poquoson, all of which finished in the top eight. Hawks’ Head Coach, Aaron Bradley had good reason to smile after it was all said and done. “This is the first time the home team has been able

32

to pull it off in the Hanover Open,” he said. “ It was good for the guys to bring it home this time. When we needed it, guys were picking up pins. In the close matches, sometimes the dual matches come down to whether we can pin the guys we need to and not give up as many pins as we’re getting. There’s the key there.” Hanover’s Connor Harrison, who wrestled at 125, contributed the win to a solid team effort. “We’re rough and tough,” he said. “We knew it was going to be tough time. We just went out; we wrestled our matches and we won it. I had all tough matches today…I had to go out and wrestle my matches every

time. Just had to get it done.” Hanover was led by 5-0 performances from Gabe LaVey and Landon Casstevens. Last year’s state champion at 135, LaVey was happy with the evening’s outcome going 5-0 with two pins and three forfeits. “It was my last Hawks’ Duals,” he said. “It’s the last time I’m going to be wrestling in this gym…kinda wanted to win it. Teammates came through. I was kind of hoping I got to wrestle more than I did, but it felt good. I’m looking forward to finishing strong and winning another state title, working hard…committing somewhere, getting ready to move on.” Though LaVey has yet to

decide where he will wrestle in college but he has narrowed his choices to West Virginia, VMI, UVA or Central Michigan. At 171, Casstevens came away with four pins on the day to boost the Hawks. “I was just trying to stay focused as much as I could,” he said. “Clear my mind as much as I could and just focus on the match.” What worked for Casstevens? “Simple stuff,” he said. “Just take-downs here, escape as much as possible; put as many moves as you can together.” The one match he had the most concern with as against Poquoson, which in his case turned out to forfeit for his weight class.

Sophomore Michael Engels had a good day wrestling at 140 and was happy with his team’s performance. “I think overall as a team we did really well,” he said. “Our little mistakes we’ll just perfect and we’ll just get up there. Engels was also glad to be back on the mat after having missed last season due to injuries. “I was totally disappointed,” he said. “ I’m not going to let that happen again. I can’t get that freshman year back.” Bradley was also pleased with Engels’ performance. “He’s wrestling tough this year,” Bradley said. “He’s got the potential [for States this year]. He definitely does. I think he

has his sights set on it. We’re just waiting for everything to fall in place. The guys are working hard…and keep at it.” The Hawks finally feel they are getting up to speed with the addition of several players from the football team. Patrick Sorey, at 189, was two for four with two pins for the Hawks, contributing to the impetus that brought Hanover their win. “There’s a lot of good teams here, and this is my first tournament back,” he said. “The team really pulled through…a lot of the upper weights.” Shreve Rohle (160) found his double-leg take-downs, see HAWKS, pg. 33 `


HAWKS Continued from pg. 32 b

halfs and cradles working for him throughout the day to go 4-1. “I was a little nervous for some matches, just because it was my first tournament this year,” he said. “But, once you get out on the mat, it kinda goes away. Being my Senior year, I want to go all out.” Finishing out for the evening at 189 was teammate Jake Nusbaum who lost by decision against his Poquoson opponent. A pleasant surprise for Bradley came from one of his newbies. “We got a big pin from our freshman 103 pounder, first-year wrestler, Jacob Rozsahegyi,” Bradley said. “He’s really only been wrestling a few weeks.” Rozsahegyi got his first pin against his New Kent opponent. “I was excited,” he said. “Just warming up; and preparing for the next match.” A long event like the Duals can feel like a marathon for many but Bradley did a good job of keeping his Hawks prepared and did not allow them to get distracted. “I just try to let them know what they’re dealing with as far as our opponent in the next round,” he said. “If it’s a long day to refocus for each match; but to take one match at a time, and concentrate on who we’re facing at that point.” Looking ahead, Bradley said his Hawks have goals to accomplish. “The guys have their minds to compete for the Regional title; hoping to defend last year’s title, and compete to win it.” However, Hanover is not focusing on a solitary opponent. “We’re just working on ourselves,” Bradley said. “If we can concentrate and do that, then everything else will fall into place.” Top 8 Teams: 1.

Brown and Jones join 1000 point club in Classic Braxton named MVP as Jackets sweep to wins By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local When Randolph-Macon hosted Johns Hopkins in the final game of the RandolphMacon Coaches Classic basketball tournament Friday afternoon, the Yellow Jackets were determined to look a bit more lively than they had the previous day. On Thursday night, the Yellow Jackets had to overcome a sluggish first half and come from behind to defeat Hood, 56-46. Against John Hopkins, they were determined to start strong and finish stronger. When the Blue Jays, trailing 8-0, called a time out four minutes into the game, it was clear that Randolph-Macon had accomplished the first goal. When the teams walked off the floor at the final buzzer, it was clear that the Yellow Jackets had accomplished their second with the 76-42 win. In other tournament games, Averett defeated Johns Hopkins 77-71 on Thursday and fell to Hood 73-60 Friday. It was a fitting end for a tournament in which two RandolphMacon seniors reached and surpassed the 1,000-point mark. Forward Danny Jones did so against Hood Thursday, and guard/forward Jordan Brown— a former L.C. Bird standout— did so Friday against the Blue Jays. “It’s always better to be playing from ahead than from behind,” said Randolph-Macon coach Nathan Davis. “It was good, after yesterday, to come out with better focus and purpose and get off to a good start.”

Randolph-Macon (10-2) was not about to let the Blue Jays (2-7) get in the game. The Yellow Jackets, with solid offensive performances from tournament most outstanding player Brandon Braxton (16 points), Brown and Jones (13 points apiece), and Eric Pugh (11 points). Overall, the Yellow Jackets shot 55 percent from the field and converted 63 percent of their field goals. In contrast, the younger Johns Hopkins squad shot only 35 percent from the field. Only two Blue Jays, Mike Rhoads and Aleksandar Nikolic reached double figures with 10 points apiece. Johns Hopkins coach Bill Nelson praised the Yellow Jackets squad. “They ran their stuff really well,” Nelson said. “They’re big. They’re strong. They can shoot. … And they work really hard on defense. It’s a well oiled machine.” Players like Brown and Jones certainly helped keep the machine running well. Jones scored 19 points against Hood to become the 38th men’s basketball player in school history to score 1,000 points. “It’s a good accomplishment, but it’s more of a team effort,” Jones said. “My teammates are giving me the ball where I need to get it. I give all the credit to them.” Brown, the 39th Yellow Jacket to score 1,000 points, was likewise modest about his achievement. “I just want to win games,” Brown said. “That’s what I’m all about.” Brown said. Reaching the 1,000-point mark Friday came as no surprise to Brown, though—his teammates made sure he stayed updated. “My whole team kept telling me about it—they didn’t leave me alone,” Brown said. “They

On Thursday vs Hood, Jones became the 38th player in Yellow Jackets history to score over 1000 career points. On Friday afternoon, Brown matched Jones’ mark by becoming the 39th player to reach the 1000 point plateau.

talked about it all day.” In addition to keeping him reminded about his approaching milestone, Brown said his teammates were determined to get off on better footing in the tournament finale. “Today we made a concerted effort to come out and be aggressive in the beginning,” Brown said. “Yesterday we came out really flat, that gave them confidence throughout the whole game and they stuck with us. Today, we just wanted to put them away early.” Another factor in RandolphMacon’s success was its balanced offensive attack. “No matter how big the other players are, we’re going to keep going inside,” Braxton

said. “They double us, we’ll kick it out for 3s.” Braxton—a 6-foot, 9-inch, senior forward—demonstrated that philosophy. While he scored most of his points down low, he hit a couple of jumpers when the occasion demanded. There is more to the Yellow Jackets’ balance, however, than being able to score from inside and out. “It’s not just one player. You have to watch everybody,” Braxton said. “Last week it was Eric (Pugh) and Adam (Desgain), and Calvin (Croskey) and Jordan. Other days it’s me, Danny, and all the other bigs. It’s just real good to have more than one good player on the team instead of just one

solid player.” That balance will come in handy as Randolph-Macon squares off with its ODAC opponents. “When you get in the ODAC schedule, there’s going to be some bumps and bruises along the way,” Jones said. “We handled it well last years, and with some experience coming back this year, we should be all right.” On Wednesday, R-MC travels to Randolph which is currently tied for first place in the ODAC. The Yellow Jackets then travel to Bridgewater for a 3 p.m. tipoff on Saturday afternoon. R-MC 76, JOHNS HOPKINS 42 JOHNS HOPKINS (2-7) Aleksandar
