a member of the board to meet these economic challenges until prosperity returns.” Via has held two leadership positions during his first term. He was elected vice chair during his second year and presided as chair during his third year in 2010. He also serves on regional committees in the Richmond Metro area as Hanover County’s representative. While serving in a leadership capacity, Via has represented the county at ribbon cuttings, parades, the Strawberry Faire, Tomato Festival and other community celebrations, in addition to speaking engagements at several events. He is now rehearsing for the 2011 edition of the Ashland Musical Variety Show. Via said the board and county administration have worked to secure the maximum bond

rating for the county. Hanover received recognition by becoming the smallest county in the United States to earn its third Triple A bond rating. That designation, he added, “will continue to save the county taxpayers money in the years ahead.” “Hanover also became only the second county in Virginia to receive the SPQA (Senate Productivity and Quality Award ) award, which recognizes the county’s outstanding leadership and services for citizens,” Via said. Other county recognitions he noted include Hanover being recognized as one of the Best Communities for Young People and the Town of Ashland being named the “Best Place to Raise Kids in Virginia,” with Mechanicsville following as runner-up. “Our public schools continue to receive recognition for their excellence,” he added. “Clearly, we have much to be proud of and thankful for here in Hanover.” “In the Ashland District,” he said, “redistricting will add vot-

ers to our magisterial district. This process will soon be completed and the town will remain in one district. We’ve also experienced growth in the town with an award-winning partnership with Dominion Resources to create the GreenTech incubator program. Hanover Foils also opened in town.” He continued, “The town and the county will be working cooperatively to draft a long-range water plan that is required by the government. Shop Hanover and Shop Ashland have been two initiatives to encourage our citizens to support local business.” “In the future,” Via said, “we hope to finalize the long-awaited opening of the Trolley Line Park. This recreational area will add green space and bike paths. This effort has been nearly a decade in the making.” As examples of accomplishments and initiatives he has been involved with the past three years, Via said the Ashland District has three precincts and one is the Town of Ashland.

Judge appoints Otis Hall to Electoral Board Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com

Otis Hall, a former member of the Hanover County Planning Commission, has been appointed to a three-year term on the Electoral Board of Hanover County by Circuit Judge J. Overton Harris. He officially took office on March 1. Hall retired from the Commonwealth of Virginia MCV-VCU with 37 years of service in the Biomedical Engineering Department. He makes his home in Hanover County on a farm, where he raises beef cattle and goats. He works part-time at Southern States in King William County. Hall has been involved with county committees and working on community projects for several years. He said his goal has always been to help make Hanover a better place to live. In 1969, he said he learned that the Henrico Rescue Squad would be leaving Glenwood Farms, which is located at the top of the hill from the village of Mechanicsville, and moving to Byrd Field near Richmond

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

What do you think about redistricting? As Hanover County looks at redistricting, which comes on the heels of the 2010 Census, public information sessions to solicit input will be held over the course of three evenings. According to information posted on the Hanover County Voter Registrar’s website, http://www.co.hanover.va.us/board/redistrict/default. htm, your can offer your opinions from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29, at Patrick Henry High School; Thursday, March 31, at Atlee High School; and Tuesday, April 5, at Lee-Davis High School. No formal presentation is scheduled, but this is your opportunity to express yourself in terms of what the redistricting could mean to you or your community. Displays and maps will be available for your review and members of the county staff will be on hand to field any questions you may have about the process. The redistricting became an issue following last year’s census, which found that population changes need to have equal representation in each district represented by a member of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. The U.S. Constitution requires that electoral districts be periodically adjusted or redrawn to account for shifts in population. Since we will be having regular elections this year, Hanover must implement redistricting. Redistricting is a major initiative of the Board of Supervisors in 2011, with the Geographic Information System (GIS) Office as the lead agency. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported on Feb. 24 that the supervisors had adopted a resolution to start the process of redistricting based on 2010 Census figures. That article said that the target population for each district would be 14,266 residents. To meet that figure, Chickahominy, Cold Harbor and Henry districts will have to shrink, while Ashland and Beaverdam districts will have to grow. Mechanicsville and South Anna remain within the allowable 2.5 percent deviation from the ideal. Melody Kinser

There’s more good news in the housing market – and it’s coming from the leading builder right here in Richmond. Ryan Homes highlights Rutland Townes, part of the new Rutland Community in Hanover’s Atlee District. Rutland Townes alone has had an unprecedented 24 sales in just over 12 months. Patrick Ashley, a sales and Marketing Representative with Ryan Homes said, “People are truly shocked when they see what $197,990 will buy them. Clearly the value over our competition has been recognized.” The community is situated just 1 mile off I-295 on Route 301, and 12 minutes from downtown Richmond and the Short Pump area. In Rutland, you get the central location without the typical congested traffic. Rutland Townes features the Odessa model, an innovative two-level floor plan that features a large family room, kitchen with an island, 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths and a garage. This model features a large owner’s suite and an optional luxury owner’s shower. The Odessa is priced as low as $197,990 with a $2,500 incentive towards options until March 25, 2011.*

While the conveniences of neighboring areas are attractive, it’s the possibilities within Rutland that make it truly unique. The community’s town center is anchored by a newly opened Kroger and opening this fall is a new YMCA. Dining opportunities are significant including Marty’s Grill, Tropical Smoothie and Zheng. The community also includes a pharmacy, bank, gas station, salon, and daycare. All just steps from your door. HHHunt, one of the Richmond area’s premier developers, has designed the neighborhood’s centerpiece to be the exquisitely restored Rutland House.

While the proposed bill won’t provide coverage for our son it will provide coverage for many families in desperate need of these vital therapies. We are very grateful and appreciative of the support we receive from our Hanover County Public School. Our son has benefited greatly from the autism program offered by our school. However, children with autism over the age of 6 still require and benefit from additional continued therapies beyond those offered through the public school system. This is but a small step in our fight for treatment for children with autism. Gary and Diane Martin Mechanicsville

coverage (71-27). Mrs. Wetlaufer wrote it will affect small business. It only affects businesses with 50 or more employees. I don’t consider a business small if it has 50 employees. Autism is an epidemic, affecting our children. A child is born with autism every one in 110 births. Boys are more at risk with one in 70 being born with autism. Children with autism need help now. They require early intervention and continued care throughout their lifetime. Anyone who doesn’t feel coverage is necessary hasn’t spent time with an autistic child. My autistic son is 7 and won’t benefit from this bill, but I am hopeful he will from future bills. The daily struggles and hardships they go through and simple every day tasks are not easy. Even a trip to the dentist to have their teeth cleaned is a major event. Many autistic children require applied behavioral analysis, speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. This creates a financial

Parents in other counties are not so fortunate. Parents want to do the best for their children; I pray Gov. Bob McDonnell will let them. I believe the vote speaks for itself.

for chances to enhance quality of life in the surrounding area, strengthen community ties and protect property values in existing neighborhoods. Establishing public parks can help achieve these goals. Including them in development proposals can be done legally and morally by working with developers to reduce cash proffers or transfer the land to public ownership for fair prices. This approach respects the property rights of developers in balance with the property rights of current residents, many of whom have paid taxes and built the character of the community for decades. These people deserve better in their back yards than just a new enclave in which 445 homes physically turn their backs on the rest of the community while the new residents compete for seats in our schools and space on our roads. The unique nature of public parks – as opposed to open spaces owned by homeowners associations – leads to numerous benefits that accrue comsee LETTERS, pg. 15 `

Challenger League brings warm moments By Stacie Sizemore Special to The Local mall hands push upward to make a basket. The ball swooshes through the net and a huge grin slowly plasters across the young player’s face as the crowd cheers. It’s a smile that is mirrored on his parents’ faces in the stands as Dad lowers his camera to put an arm around an emotional Mom as she wipes at glistening eyes. This isn’t a Final Four playoff, a championship game or even a tie-breaking score, but it’s an award-winning moment for these players, many of whom are enjoying their first moments on an organized sports team. Upward’s Challenger Division in Hanover is happy to be providing such happy moments as its season kicks off for a second year for boys and girls with special needs. “ When I was asked to be a part of the planning team for Upward Challenger League I was excited because it was a natural extension of our current Bridge Builders Ministry,

which provides one to one assistance to children with special needs so that families can be involved in church and Sunday School and not have to worry about having to stay with their child because of the special support they might need,” volunteer Wendy Atkinson said. The families involved can’t say enough about the league that has provided such oppor-

tunities for their sons and daughters, many having recon-

their children participate in organized sports. “At Cool Spring Baptist Church we had a ministry in place to work one to one with children with special needs. I felt that integrating these children into our Upward Sports Ministry and keeping with Upwards theme that ‘Every Child is a Winner’ was the next step. Our goals for our league were two-fold: 1) Every child gets to enjoy the Upward Basketball experience and 2) the parents be able to enjoy the experience by watching their child from the stands,” said Upward Challenger division director Ed Berenson said. Games look a little different, with all players having assigned “Buddies” assist them on the court during the game. These Buddy volunteers help direct the players, instructing them in game fundamentals, and, more importantly, providing support, encouragement and friendship. High fives abound and hugs are plentiful as players and their Buddies make their way ciled that they may never enjoy up and down the court. the simple pleasure of watching “Adults and teens are

trained in the needs of their individual child and they have direct support at all times to assist with programming needs and help with behavioral challenges. Upward Challenger opened the door to more opportunities to help these students develop new physical skills, interact with peers and just enjoy a community activity,” Atkinson added. ——Hanover’s Challenger League is a division of Upward Sports, the world’s largest Christian sports program for children, was created with a vision to provide the best sports experience possible for every child. Each year some one million people around the world play, coach, referee or volunteer in Upward Sports Leagues and Camps hosted by more than 2,400 churches. These churches have taken Upward Sports Programs to 67 countries on mission trips. Anyone – children and volunteers of any faith or no faith – can participate in Upward Sports. Upward Sports aims to bring out “the winner” in every child – regardless of the game’s score.

school based high school teams, this team is made up of two middle schoolers and two high schoolers and is not affiliated with any school. They are coached by Richard and Julia’s parents and the team represents a variety of schooling options: two members go to private schools, one attends public school and one is home schooled. Their major sponsors are their parents and the Center for Creative Arts in Glen Allen. This season they have worked tirelessly since this year’s challenge was released back in September. This year’s competition requires the teams to collect and dispense batons into rolling and stationary goals, climb a wooden mountain, jump off cliffs and balance on a tilting bridge, with points scored for various tasks. The team won advancement to the Virginia State Champions by competing in a regional competition held in Norfolk in January. At that competition, the team was awarded the Regional Inspire award, which automatically advanced them to the States competition. Four regionals were held throughout the state in December and January. At States, 42 teams from Virginia, West Virginia and the Washington, D.C., area participated in the all-day event. In addition to their robotics performance, teams were

judged on their team spirit, their efforts to educate their communities about engineering and robotics, and their engineering notebooks. Teams work in pairs, or alliances, that are randomly determined during the preliminary rounds. The alliances operate their robots together on the playing field to score points (offensive) or to deter the other alliance’s robots from scoring points (defense). The top eight teams then advance to the semifinals with the final two teams advancing to the finals. 3 Dudes with Attitude dominated their preliminary matches, winning each of the five matches and finding themselves as the top seed in the semifinals. They won each of their four semifinal matches and advanced to the finals where they ended up second overall. As a result of their great performance on the field, as well as high rankings for their community outreach, robot design and engineering notebook, the judges chose to give them the Inspire Award, which awarded the team advancement to the World Championships. As a part of their community outreach, 3 Dudes with Attitude has partnered with Atlee High School’s FRC team to help build a “mini” bot for the FRC competition. In a twist for the FRC competition this year, the FTC teams were asked to offer partnership to FRC teams because the FRC

teams must have an FTC “mini” bot deploy from their robots during the last 30 seconds of the match. This “mini” bot must climb a 10-foot pole and trigger a switch at the top of the pole signaling that the robot has reached the top.

The fastest “mini” bot to the top of the pole garners the highest points. According to Coach Julie, members of 3 Dudes with Attitude are excited to work with the Atlee team and look forward to their competition April 7-9 at the Seigel Center.

and the maintenance costs of the parks. This is especially true if the parks are undeveloped or only minimally developed as “passive parks.” Volunteerism also could be used in service of new public parks – as it is already in service of existing public parks – to further decrease our tax rates.

Interfaith Council honors students Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com Six Hanover County students recently were honored by the Interfaith Council of Greater Richmond’s 44th Annual Brotherhood Sisterhood Youth Award Honorees. The Feb. 17 program was presented at the River Road Baptist Church. Local recipients were: ● Molly Morgan Axt of Atlee High School, the daughter of Laurie and Wally Axt of Mechanicsville, has been involved for four years in an Inclusion Program that provides an after-school extra-curricular activities for students with an intellectual disability; inviting them to homecoming and prom, holding birthday parties for them and being friends . She even made personalized photo albums for each of the students in the program. Molly makes sure ESL student aren’t sitting alone at lunch and intercedes when she witnesses bullying. ● Stephen Vincent Alexander II of Hanover High School, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Alexander of Mechanicsville, seamlessly works with others, even those who hold different beliefs or have varied backgrounds. He meets after school to engage the student body with those who have disabilities. Stephen attended a mission trip to Mexico, helping to rebuild a home for orphaned children. He volunteers for Hanover Parks and Recreation, supervising and developing activities for children. ● Tyler Womble of Lee-

These Hanover County students recently received the Brotherhood Sisterhood Youth Award. They are, from left, Haley Herbert, The Hanover Center for Trades and Technology; Tyler Womble, Lee-Davis High School; and Molly Morgan Axt, Atlee High School; and, back row, Brooke Nancekivell, The Maggie L. Walker Governor’s School; Eugene Harris, Patrick Henry High School; and Stephen Alexander, Hanover High School.

Davis High School, the son of Susan and Ricky Womble of Mechanicsville, is a leader among his classmates and soccer team and accomplished academically as evidenced by being chosen as a Junior Marshall and a member of the National Honor Society. A youth indoor team assembled for a season and the coach did not show up. Tyler not only led the team for that game, but took the responsibility of coaching the team for the rest of the season. ● Brooke Nancekivell of The Maggie L Walker Governor’s School, the daughter of Brian and Jan Nancekivell of Mechanicsville, demonstrates exceptional active listening skills and trains other Peer Helpers in conflict-mediation. She is a leader in the Gay/ Straight Alliance. She holds the Girl Scout Gold Award and participates in service projects, having 845 community service hours. She served children in Guatemala last summer and hopes for a career with a non-

profit organization. ● Eugene Stephaun Harris of Patrick Henry High School, the son of Steven and Tandra Harris of Beaverdam, is one of only 25 students in his class, enrolled as an International Baccalaureate Diploma Candidate. Eugene is a multi-talented individual, balancing his involvement with the school sports program, student government, student ambassador and a rigorous academic load. He is a natural leader and has a rare ability to make those around him feel they are valued. ● Haley Herbert of The Hanover Center for Trades & Technology, the daughter of Paula Furcron of Mechanicsville, consistently demonstrates respect, concern and a friendly manner toward everyone. She is a model to her colleagues intellectually, in temperament and in service, and can calm the occasional heightened emotions of a salon full of teenage girls. She participates in community volunteer efforts includ-

ing doing hair, nails and make up for a group of special needs students who went to Prom. The six Hanover high school students were among 49 from parochial, private and public schools who have shown caring for others and participated in activities that improve human relations and inter-group understanding. Students were nominated by their respective school counselors, administrators and sometimes their classmates. Criteria for the selection of these student honorees include volunteerism, being the calm voice of reason in potentially confrontational situations, ability to relate to others of different gender, race or religion; empathy with, and understanding of those with limited physical and/or emotional capabilities. The keynote speaker for the event was Dr. Ronald O. Forbes Sr., medical director of Central State Hospital in Petersburg. see INTERFAITH, pg. 23 `

Public parks promote exercise as a first line of defense against the obesity epidemic and the costly rise in chronic disease in our country. They serve as gathering spaces that help promote the social backbone of a healthy community. They can meet multiple purposes as buffers and connectors between old and new neighborhoods, walkable and bikeable links across the area, habitat preserves, sustainable natural filters to keep our water drinkable and our air breathable, and psychological refuges from the growing population densities in our area. They do not present complications for law enforcement, as do park spaces owned by private homeowner associations. They add to the intangible character of a community. They respond to citizen wishes.

THE 2011

A survey conducted to inform a master plan update recently completed by the county’s Parks and Recreation Department showed that citizens want open green space and more public parks, especially smaller decentralized parks that are easier to get to and use. The plan noted that the county is significantly deficient in public parks. For more, see http://hanoversfuture.org/. Those who believe that public parks represent a financial burden for taxpayers are misinformed. The few potential negative aspects of small public parks are far outweighed by the many positives, in my opinion. A new attitude in our county leadership regarding public parks would be welcome – hopefully very soon, before we have run out of opportunities in the Chickahominy District of the county.

Pop-economics serve the rich Oscar Walker is confused when he quotes Proverbs: “The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender.” Ignoring the obvious wisdom in Proverbs, Oscar claims that “politicians purchase our votes with tax dollars.” Actually, politicians are purchased by the primary investment blocs in industry, specifically finance, oil and military firms. If you want to know how our votes are acquired — look no further than the malaise that is CNN, NBC, FOX et al. But Proverbs isn’t completely on target, either.

Many get multi-year dog tags Did you know that Hanover County dog owners no longer have to go year-to-year on buying dog licenses? The county now gives dog owners the option to buy tags that are good for up to three calendar years, at what could be a lower price. Hanover implemented the new system in January. It’s been very popular so far – more than 40 percent of all dog licenses sold in January were for multiple years. “People seem to really like this option,” Scott Miller, treasurer, said. “Buying a license that will be good for the next two or three years is more efficient and the fact that you can even do it all online is another big plus.” In Hanover, dog tags can be good for one, two or three calendar years provided that the dog’s rabies vaccination is good through that period. For example, you can buy a three-year dog tag that would cover your

thrive without a strong dollar — cue the massive federal bond purchases by China. Numerous readers (Lee, Alward, Winfrey) have written to express their concern about government spending and “big government.” Instead of targeting the rich, budget reform has always consisted of attacks on the working class. Winfrey in particular tries to paint government as the “problem” for innovation. But he’s woefully false: something like 80 percent of technological innovation is subsidized by the government. The finance sector proves in its own right that futures and derivatives are more lucrative than job creation — so why pretend that tax cuts for the rich will create jobs? But there is an alternative: massive taxes on those who have accumulated wealth in the unregulated financial markets. Transfer this to the working class by expanding government jobs, purchases, or as a class subsidy. Either way, those who possess the means of production will have only one option to get rich again: produce goods for American consumers. But this probably won’t happen, because, as Proverbs points out: “The rich rule over the poor.” Dean Sayers Mechanicsville

been eighth graders, sent to the streets by the men Planned Parenthood protected. Nor was this an isolated incident. The organization didn’t turn its back on teenage prostitution in one clinic, as the President suggests, but in seven! And that doesn’t include a dozen tapes in which Planned Parenthood agrees to everything from accepting race-based abortion donations to covering up statutory rape. Ironically, this claim comes from a President who has spent plenty of time sidetracked on issues unrelated to his office. Chicago Olympic bid, anyone? How about the beer summit?

NPR reporter recaps high court coverage

Conservation project

By Forrest H. Gladstone For The Mechanicsville Local Nina Totenberg first came to prominence on NPR in 1977 when she broke the story of the U.S. Supreme Court’s secret 5-3 vote against reviewing the appeal of the three men convicted in the Watergate scandal. Her career since has been marked by the historical and controversial stories on which she has reported, the list that includes the Roe vs. Wade decision and the Clarence Thomas/ Anita Hill hearings. On Feb. 24, Totenberg spoke at Randolph-Macon College’s Blackwell Auditorium as a part of the Paul and Lois Watkins Lecture Series. The event, which was free but did require a ticket for admission, was completely sold out — extra chairs had to be set onstage to accommodate extra R-MC students. Given the type of stories that she is known for covering, the “Evening with Nina Totenberg” was surprisingly moderate. Totenberg spoke primarily on her personal experiences with the Supreme Court, sharing anecdotes and memories, and declining to give many of see NRP, pg. 26 `

protecting children is a “distraction,” America has bigger problems than I thought. Jadine S. Jett Glen Allen

Praise for autism bill Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder in the U.S. It is more common in children than cancer, diabetes, Down’s syndrome and AIDS combined. Because it is a spectrum disorder, symptoms can range from very mild to severe. Many families in Virginia have been financially devastated by the lack of insurance coverage for necessary autism therapies. Imagine the anguish and helplessness a parent feels knowing their child needs treatment that is unattainable due to cost and lack of coverage. About 50 percent of children with autism who receive proper early intervention including,

but not limited to, speech therapy, occupational therapy, ABA (applied behavioral analysis) and physical therapy are able to be mainstreamed by age 5. The autism reform legislation would decrease the tax burden Virginia taxpayers will pay if children with autism continue to go untreated. It would allow many Virginia children the opportunity to achieve a normal life and become productive adults and taxpayers. As a parent of two awesome kids, one who happens to have autism, I applaud the members of the Virginia General Assembly for their passage of Senate Bill 1062 and House Bill 2467, which require insurance companies to provide coverage of evidence-based autism therapies. Hopefully, Gov. McDonnell will hear Virginia’s voice and sign the bills into law. Greta Selden Mechanicsvill

response from Marshall Hall to my recent letter to the editor. At least I know for sure that one person read the letter and thought about the situation. However, Mr. Hall misunderstood. I never said that all hunters are bad and I invite him to reread the letter. I was specific that I was talking about “. . . these negligent hunters . . .” who abandon their hunting dogs and the county ends up housing and destroying them. I personally know responsible hunters and, while I choose not to hunt, respect them for providing humane treatment for their dogs. Regarding Mr. Hall’s comments on the prosecution of the hunter whose name was on the collar of the beagle I adopted, the shelter staff told me they couldn’t take action against him because they did not see him put the collar on her. Sad faces are still on the website if any reader dares to look. Again, what can be done to hold these negligent hunters responsible? Every day, we pay for their I was pleased to see the

No healthcare reform talks I was flabbergasted when I received an e-mail update from U.S. Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., that was entitled A Grown Up discussion about deficits. As a pro-life Democrat, I just wish he had been this willing to have a “Grown Up” discussion about healthcare reform with his Richmond constituents. Even though I saw billboards requesting a healthcare town hall meeting and I’m sure tens of thousands of patrons calling his office requesting the same, there was nothing. His email updates regarding healthcare reform should have been entitiled no discussion (with the Richmond voters) about healthcare reform. LaToya Brown Mechanicsville

Relay brings together friends, families, businesses, hospitals, schools, faith-based groups . . . people from all walks of life – all aimed at furthering the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, by helping them get well, by finding cures and by fighting back. “Relay For Life draws attention to the progress being made

in the fight against cancer,” Faith Van Goor, Hanover volunteer Relay event chair, said. “Many participants are our family, friends and neighbors who have faced cancer themselves. Their involvement helps brings hope that, together, we can eliminate cancer as a major health problem,” she added. Information about how to form a team or become involved in Relay For Life is available at RelayForLife.org/hanover or by calling 1-800-227-2345.

Particularly impressive since, as Totenberg noted, both O’Connor as well as current Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had a hard time finding employment after law school, despite graduating in the top of their class. The most interesting parts of the evening, however, came when the floor was opened to audience questions. Asked whether she felt the court is too hemmed in by tradition, Totenberg gave a very thoughtful and provocative response. “I don’t have fits over the idea that they do things slowly,” she said. “There are things that I might do differently, but who knows what sort of ripple effect my way might have? Once you let the genie out of the bottle, you can’t put it back, and I’d hate to see pressure caused by trying to modernize and keep up with public expectation rush a court decision.” A popular question was how Totenberg felt about the decisions she witnessed, and whether she felt that decisions with larger majorities held more weight than those that were closer in vote. “It makes a difference to lawyers,” Totenberg said, “but that’s about it. A 5-4 decision is a 5-4 decision, and often the cause for the split is ideological — you can’t get people who dissent strongly to go along, and sometimes that compromise just doesn’t exist.” And, to no one’s surprise, someone asked what she thought was going to happen when President Obama’s healthcare plan made it to the court. Totenberg shook her head. “Not going there,” she said, smiling but clearly firm. The evening, as well as the picture that Totenberg painted of the Supreme Court, can be summed up well in a quote that Totenberg shared by Wendell Holmes: “We are very quiet here, but it is the quiet of a storm center.”

With the support of the Virginia Council for Economic Education, students work in small groups to manage a simulated investment portfolio over the course of 10 weeks in the fall. Under the guidance of Brian Carr, government teacher at Atlee High School, Alaina Perkins and Ginny Rush took first place in the high school division with a winning portfolio of $114,123.21. Sallie Moncol, a fifth grade teacher at South Anna Elementary School, and Cammie Gemmill, a gifted and talented teacher at South Anna, guided

Shelby Nash, Taqiyah Chernesky and Josh Sheppard to their first place win in the elementary division, with a portfolio of $106,153.14. 3 Kimberly Jameson-Dean, a gifted and talented resource teacher at Kersey Creek Elementary School, received the 2011 Superintendent’s $1,000 Professional Development Scholarship, which is awarded to a classroom teacher whose potential of achieving greater things with and for the students in the classroom would be heightened if afforded a significant professional development opportunity. Funds from the scholarship can support tuition, books, travel and other activities relating to the professional development experience. Jameson-Dean will use the scholarship to attend next year’s National Association for Gifted Children’s Annual Convention in New Orleans, where she said she hopes to increase her knowledge base in areas such as the social/emotional needs of gifted students and how to best serve dual-identified students. Other goals include gaining more ideas for ways to enrich and accelerate in the core curriculum areas and obtaining more materials, which will support student learning. Jameson-Dean said she plans to work

with her principal, Dr. Deborah Waters, to use a faculty meeting or professional development day to share with her faculty some of what she learns from the conference. The Hanover Education Foundation established the scholarship in 1999 and continues to award the scholarship annually to a promising classroom teacher. 3 The school system received the Go Green Challenge Award from the Virginia Association of Counties to recognize local school divisions and governments that promote sustainable practices in energy management. The “Challenge” is a friendly competition designed to encourage implementation of specific environmental policies and practical actions that reduce the carbon emissions generated by local government, school systems and the broader community. Local school systems earn “green points” by implementing actions and adopting policies, both existing and new. Amassing between 100 and 124 “green points out of a possible 200 will earn a certification as a “Green Government.” School systems also could earn Silver, Gold and Platinum levels of certification for scores of

125 points or higher. Action taken by the school district to achieve the recognition include: replacing old lighting with more efficient lighting that reduces energy usage while improving illumination and the installation of more efficient heating, ventilation and air condition units. The award, sponsored by Trane and Moseley Architects, was presented by Matte Anderson, area manager for Trane. 3 On behalf of the Virginia School Boards Association, Gov. McDonnell and the staff of Hanover County Public Schools, Dr. Stewart D. Roberson, superintendent, presented certificates to School Board members – John F. Axselle III, chair, Beaverdam District; Ann F.H. Gladstone, vice chair, South Anna District; Earl J. Hunter Jr., Henry District; Robert L. Hundley Jr., Chickahominy District; Sue Forbes Watson, Ashland District; Robert L. Wood, Cold Harbor District; and Glenn T. Millican Jr., Mechanicsville District — in recognition of their commitment and service to the children of Hanover County. The VSBA and the governor had proclaimed February as School Board Member Appreciation Month to focus attention on the important role these public officials play in the education of the children of Virginia. This year’s theme is “Our School Board Is Leading Students to Success.”

According to Roberson, the School Board works closely with parents, education professionals and other community members to create the educational vision and mission. The board develops policy, formulates goals, defines results, and sets the course for an outstanding and equitable educational program for all students. The VSBA also designated the third week of February as VSBA School Board Clerk Appreciation Week, with a goal of building awareness of the role board clerks play in assisting School Board members, superintendents and the local schools. Kate Brown serves as executive administrative assistant and clerk of the School Board. 3 Representatives from Ultra Chem Labs and Rutherford Janitorial Supply recognized Tom Vaughan, director of custodial services, and Hanover County Public Schools for their commitment to providing a safe and environmentally prosperous school community for the children of Hanover County. Over the past year, the school district has implemented new floor cleaning and maintenance technologies to make a drastic positive impact on environmental source reduction, which, in turn, will drastically reduce the amount of conventional products being utilized on a daily basis. 3 Linwood Horne, assistant director of pupil transportation, was honored for having achieved the National Association for Pupil Transportation certification as a director of pupil transportation.

R-MC scores third-fewest points this season By Eric Kolenich Media General News Services ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. — With less than two minutes left in the game, Randolph-Macon coach Nathan Davis emptied the bench, taking his starters off the floor and admitting defeat to St. Mary’s. The Yellow Jackets managed their third-lowest point total of the season and never got into an offensive rhythm, falling 6853 to the Seahawks in the second round of the Division III NCAA tournament. The loss eliminates Macon

from the tournament a year after the Yellow Jackets advanced to the Final Four. With their top 12 scorers back from last year’s team, Davis admitted there was much pressure on the team to repeat last year’s success. “It’s hard to play every game with a bull’s-eye on your back,” senior Danny Jones added. Macon’s seven seniors leave as the only class to win 20 games in each of its four seasons. St. Mary’s advances to the round of 16 for the third time in the past four years. The Seahawks next week will play Buffalo State, which defeated Johnson & Wales 96-72. The Seahawks jumped out

to a commanding 12-2 lead. They used relentless pressure to get into RMC’s passing lanes, forcing the Yellow Jackets to take quick shots and make mistakes. “They executed our game plan to a T,” St. Mary’s coach Chris Harney said of his team. The Yellow Jackets finished the 1 of 11 from behind the 3-point line and committed 16 turnovers — 10 in the first half — off which the Seahawks tallied 22 points. “We knew it was going to be a war,” Harney said. Sam Burum led the Seahawks with 15 points. Alex Franz had 13 and Christian MacAuley had 12. The Yellow

Jackets were led by Lamar Giggetts with 12 points. Macon cut its deficit to five points in the first half, but the Seahawks scored the final eight points before the break and took a 34-21 lead into halftime. In the second half, St. Mary’s stepped it up a notch and hit 13 of 26 field goal attempts, never letting Macon back in the game. Randolph-Macon was supposed to host a first-round game but was sent on the road because of an error made by the NCAA. St. Mary’s was 14-0 at home this season. “It’s only human nature to see R-MC, pg. 39 `

R-MC seniors Kevin Voelkel, Billy Campion, Jordan Brown and Brandon Braxton watches as the seconds tick away on their basketball careers. The NCAA has admitted that they made a mistake in not allowing the highly ranked Yellow Jacket team play at home. Instead, an error sent R-MC to play at St. Mary’s which holds one of the most dominant home court advantages in all of NCAA basketball.

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com ST. MARY’S CITY, Md.— When the brackets were announced for this year’s DIII NCAA Tournament, the Randolph-Macon men’s basketball team was taken aback. With stellar play they had claimed a regular season ODAC co-championship, an ODAC Tournament title and earned a #6 national ranking on D3hoops.com. Therefore the Yellow Jackets expected to be a lock to serve as one of the 15 teams which would host first and second round NCAA Tournament games. Instead, R-MC was sent east to play at raucous St. Mary’s College, which was serving as an NCAA host for the second consecutive year. It was only afterward that it was announced a mistake had

been made by the NCAA selection committee when it came to naming host sites. The men’s and women’s selection committees alternate years for priority on which picks host sites first. This year the women made the initial selections and designated R-MC as a host school. Therefore, their decision superseded the possibility of the men having the option to host. But when the R-MC women were later sent on the road to balance the brackets geographically, no one relayed the information to the men’s committee leaving Ashland without either home game. Later in the week, NCAA Basketball Committee Chairman Dave Martin elaborated on the mistake during an interview on D3hoops.com’s Hoopsville. see MISTAKE, pg. 39 `


R-MC women’s basketball falls to host Lebanan Valley Staff reports Four Yellow Jackets finished in double figures but host Lebanon Valley ended the game on a 14-0 run to get past Randolph-Macon Women’s Basketball 73-56 in Annville, PA Saturday night in the D-III NCAA Tournament second round. Taylor Wieczorek notched her 12th double-double of the season, scoring 12 points and hauling in 14 rebounds. Maggie Roy also chipped in with 12 points and four rebounds. Molly Brown and Jennifer O’Briant added 11 each. The Yellow Jackets shot 37.1% from the field to the Dutchmen’s 36.1% but Lebanon Valley held a 46-40 edge on the glass and hit 28-of-37 free throws to Randolph-Macon’s 2-of-6 mark from the line.

wonder,” Davis said, what may have happened if the Yellow Jackets had gotten to host the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament. Instead, they played with the Seahawks’ student section fulminating all night long. “We have some of the craziest, most insane fans in the country,” St. Mary’s center Christian MacAuley said.

half when Wieczorek a jumper at the buzzer to pull Macon within 34-31. Randolph-Macon opened the second half with the hot hand, scoring the first six points to take a 37-34 edge. A Wieczorek two and a Jordan Cantrell layup stretched the R-MC advantage to 43-39 with 13:39 left but LVC regained the lead just over two minutes later when Hiltz dropped in a bucket. Jennifer O’Briant converted a three point play to pull the

Jackets within three at the 3:59 mark before the Dutchmen went on a 14-0 run to end the game and advance to the next round of the NCAA Tournament. In their Friday night opener, Randolph-Macon hit 6-of-6 free throws in the last 54 seconds and held Bridgewater State to just three points in the final three minutes to take the NCAA Tournament First Round game 80-69. Wieczorek recorded 27 points and 15 rebounds, Brown finished with 14 points and seven boards while Roy dropped

in ten points. The Yellow Jackets shot a blistering 47.8% on 32-of-67 shooting from the floor and 12for-14 from the free throw line while holding Bridgewater State to 38% shooting. R-MC also held a 44-39 edge on the glass. Randolph-Macon opened the game with a 15-0 run, capped by a Jillian Asay two point jumper with 15:29 to go. Brittney Chappron hit a three with 5:13 left in the first stanza to pull Bridgewater State within six at 27-21 but Brown knocked

down a trifecta of her own on the next possession to put R-MC back up nine. Following the Brown three, BSU opened up a 12-4 run, finished off with a DePina layup to pull within one. Brown sunk a two pointer just before halftime to send the Yellow Jackets into the locker room with a 36-33 edge. Randolph-Macon held their advantage until the 14:38 mark when Megan Boutilette scored four straight points to put Bridgewater State up 45-44.

The two teams traded baskets and the lead for the next 11 minutes until Michaela Cosby converted a pair of free throws to tie the game for the sixth time at 66-66. Katie Williams then hit a pair of free throws with 3:18 remaining that sparked a decisive 8-0 Jackets’ run, finished off with four straight points from Wieczorek at the 1:19 mark. R-MC ends the 2010-11 season 23-7 overall and 17-3 in the conference along with the ODAC Championship.

MISTAKE

bottom line was, we felt that it had been announced, plans were in the works and we felt that while it was unfortunate we would have to live with it and move forward,” Martin said. However, moving forward appeared to be an obstacle for R-MC, at least when it came to their play. In the tournament opener against Alvernia Macon did not play like the same efficient Yellow Jacket team leading up to that point, only advancing due to a 3-pointer from Danny Jones in the final seconds that sent the game into overtime. Their second round game against host St. Mary’s could easily be described as an ambush as R-MC was overwhelmed on Ed Cole Court. How much of an advantage does St. Mary’s hold at home? The Seahawks currently hold a 32 game regular season win streak dating back to Jan. 30, 2008. Since that time their only home stumbles were an overtime loss to Marymount in the 2009 CAC Tournament semifinals and an NCAA Sweet 16 loss to Franklin and Marshall last year. The packed housed filled largely with rowdy St. Mary’s students turned the gym into an intimidating din that the players feel give them a huge advantage. “Unbelievable,” said Seahawks’ senior center Sam

Burum. “We feel like we have some of the best, craziest, most insane fans in the country probably, at our school. “I don’t know what it must do to other teams but playing in that environment, for us it just gives us the biggest edge.” Senior guard Alex Franz agreed. “They hype us up so much,” he said. “It’s definitely an emotional edge. I wouldn’t be the other team that plays in front of that. It’s intimidating.” But perhaps freshman Christian MacAuley summed it up best. “It sucks to be the other team.” St. Mary’s head coach Chris Harney described the home court advantage to be one of the best at any level of college basketball. “In all my years of coaching I’ve only heard of the crowd being a factor in the game of basketball for Duke, Maryland and St. Mary’s College,” he said. “I’ve never heard of the crowd being an influence at any other school.” Therefore the Yellow Jackets were slapped with a double of whammy, going from the expectation of playing at home to being sent into the lion’s den. It’s impossible to say if RMC could have defeated St. Mary’s if the two teams played in Ashland, but that is a doubt that will linger in the minds of the seven Yellow Jacket seniors

for the rest of their lives. “It’s probably human nature to wonder, but for whatever reason that’s not the way it happened,” Coach Davis said. “We had to go on the road… There’s a lot of teams sitting at home that would have easily traded places with us tonight. I don’t think there’s any point in sitting around going, ‘What if we’d had this? What if we’d had that?’ We had an opportunity to win it for ourselves and they played better, they took advantage of it.” Yet it’s sad to think that a NCAA mistake may have played a hand in the premature

end to the college careers of seven R-MC seniors looking to earn a place in history. “I know the bottom line on this is, every single person involved in this from a committee standpoint or a NCAA standpoint, nobody feels good about it,” Martin said. “We’re going to try to do what’s right in terms of making sure it never happens again.” A year like this will certainly never happen again for the current players at RandolphMacon, looking back with the memory of their season ending on a mistake.

“I’m not sure of the details of how it unraveled but I know that when we were ready to do our bracketing, we were presented with a list of women’s schools that were hosting and Randolph-Macon was on that list,” Martin said. The men’s bracket was released at 1 p.m. on Monday afternoon and so no one realized a mistake had been made until 3 p.m. when the women’s bracket was announced. “Quite honestly, it’s unfortunate,” Martin said. “I didn’t find out about it until the women’s bracket was released, as most of us did.” Martin immediately got on the phone. “I called Jeff Burns the AD at Randolph-Macon and explained to him what happened,” he said. “Nothing that I was going to say to him was going to make him or (Coach) Nathan (Davis) or the players at Macon- nothing that I was going to say was going to make them feel better.” The NCAA discussed the possibility changing the sites and allow R-MC to host, but because hours had passed since the original announcement was made, too many people had already arranged travel. “At the end of the day, the

BOYS SOCCER PREVIEW

Teams on field could be far different than on paper

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com It will be business as usual when it comes to boys soccer in Hanover County this spring. The Capital District race will be a tight contest between Atlee, Hanover and Lee-Davis while Patrick Henry will make waves in the Colonial District. Atlee saw a large portion of it’s roster depart with graduation and Lee-Davis only lost four players but they were all among the district’s best while Hanover sits somewhere between the two. Therefore this season the competition between the three schools would appear to be so close that even for the coaches it is hard to determine who will be the best until the squad actually hit the field. “There’s so much energy when the three Hanover schools play and really if Patrick Henry was in the distinct it would be four instead of three,” said LeeDavis head coach Ed Kidder. “If you go by strictly what teams look like on paper you’ll probably be wrong more than you’ll be right. Even though there are favorites in the district because they’re going to be some older teams, it’s still going to be a pretty good battle.” Atlee head coach Steve Thompson concurred. “District, it’s kind of like an enigma right now. Lee-Davis lost a lot. We obviously lost a lot but we’ve been able to fill so we should be at least as strong as last year. LeeDavis was really strong last year. I can see us fighting for the top two spots. Hanover, they’ve been consistently getting

better as well.” ATLEE With the graduation of AllDistrict first-teamers Michael McCabe, Sebastian Morrison and Jordan Boothe, the Raiders will have some substantial holes to fill this season. However, Atlee will look to one of the district’s top midfielders and a group of talented young players to smooth the transition. Senior mid Ben O’Keefe returns as a first team selection last season and he is joined by three players who made the All-District lists last year as freshmen. Sophomore backs Chandler Crescentini and Conner Hulser were second team selections while mid Alex Maimone was an Honorable Mention. Head coach Steve Thompson has also brought up players to fill out his roster. “Ben O’Keefe is back and he’s a star center midfielder and I’ve added a few more from JV that are going to help that spot, so even though we did lose quite a bit we’ve been able to fill some spots. It’s not bad right now,” he said. The biggest question mark for the Raiders is in goal, but Thompson is looking for a pair of seniors to fill the void left behind by McCabe. Seniors Dimitris Killinger and Mike Hyland are currently neck-andneck for the starting slot, so

much so that Thompson may use both. “They’ll be fighting it out week by week,’ he said. “Whoever’s hot that week, that’s who’s going to go.” Overall, Thompson likes where his team stands as the season gets ready to begin. “We’re pretty solid, numbers are down a little bit,” he said. “I have a huge junior crew that came off JV so I have some decisions I had to make there and I picked up a few more sophomores so we’re real young.” Backs Hunter Boroughs, Jeremy Anderson and Shawyn Griffin are the only other seniors on the Raiders roster, so with the exception of Killinger and Hyland alternating at goal, nearly every senior will start this season. LEE-DAVIS The Confederates only lost four players to graduation from last year’s Capital District championship squad. However, the talent level of those athletes will create a considerable hole in the Lee-Davis lineup because every one was an All-District selection. Gone from this year’s team are 2010 district Player of the Year Caleb Lewis, first team-

ers Alec Walton and Antonio DeOliveria as well as second teamer Derek Cook. “We’ve got some very strong players to attempt to replace,” said head coach Ed Kidder. Yet, the cabinet is far from bare for the C-feds. Senior CJ Stevens should clearly be the district’s top keeper this season and he is joined by classmate Blake Thompson at midfield. Thompson was a first team selection last year while Stevens a second team member. Other returning second team selections are senior forward JD Hudnall, junior mid Chris Kunca and sophomore Scott Lohmann on defense. Senior defense Dominic Smith was a Honorable Mention last season. Kidder expects Thompson and senior Tyler Womble to take over the leadership role on the team but though an underclassman, Kunca will be there as well. “Even though he’s s junior he’s playing like a senior,” Kidder said. “He’s taken the sport and athletics in general very seriously.” Currently Kidder’s delema is not how to fill the voids in his team, but who to use because of the consistent tal-

ent across the board. “We’ve got 19 people on varsity roster and they’re probably 16 of them right now vying for starting positions,” he said. “We’ve got real good senior leadership it’s really the rest of the multitudes. We like what we see so it’s not a matter of not finding someone for a position it’s finding the right one for the position.” HANOVER In his first year as Hanover head coach Brian Smith plans to pick up right where Coach Joe Broscious left off. With a sophomore heavy squad last season, Smith has plenty of young talent to work with in his first season. There will only be three or four seniors contributing the Hawks this season. Junior center midfielder Travis Borkey was a first team All-District selection last season and will be an important part of this year’s success. “He is physically gifted, gets the ball forward for us well, and is dangerous in front of goal,” Smith said. Senior forward Derek Burton was a second team All-District player last season and will move from striker to anchoring the defense. Senior Kevin Hetzer and junior Cole Snider w e r e also second team selections at midfield. Juniors Kenny

Spurlock (def) and Alex Taddiken (for) were both Honorable Mention a season ago. The Hawks will look to varsity newcomer Tommy Hurst at keeper but they have high expectations for his talents. “(He) is a developing into a top shot stopper, and he has grown into a leadership role for the team,” Smith said. With so much youth, Smith hopes that the Hawks develop into a team that can maintain their level of play when it counts most. “We are largely untested in big games,” he said. “I see us finishing 3rd or 2nd this year. Its always a tight race in our district for the spots in the region, so hopefully our young side can keep our heads enough to realize our potential.” PATRICK HENRY Last season the Patriots were burning up the nets, not suffering their first loss until Apr. 29. This year Patrick Henry hopes to build on that success and keep the momentum rolling despite losing eight starters from a year ago. “The biggest challenge this year is looking to find the best combination of 11,” said head coach Dan McGraw. “We have been blessed with a dedicated coaching staff, Bryan Buckalew, el presidente Tony Santos, and our newest member from France Laurent Body.” Anchoring the Patriots this season will be senior sweeper Kyle Tyson, center mid Karl Braun and forward Robert Torrence. “They are seniors and they are performing at a very high level,” McGraw said. Nathan Boone will be in goal. “We have several other players who will be major contributors this season as well,” see SOCCER, pg. 41 `


R-MC survives scare from Alvernia 62-59

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com ST. MARY’S CITY, Md.Trailing Alverina throughout a majority of the second half, Randolph-Macon senior Danny Jones drilled a three from the left wing with five seconds left in regulation to send the Yellow Jackets’ D-III NCAA opener into overtime. In the extra period, R-MC managed to edge ahead then elude a buzzerbeater three from Alvernia’s Seth Cornell that caromed off the back rim, giving Macon a 62-59 win at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. With every contributing player returning from last year’s Final Four team, R-MC came into the post season expecing an extended tournament run but they heaved a collective sigh of relief with simply escaping the first round. “When you get in the national tournament everyone’s going to be good, capable of doing things and you’ve got to give them credit, they had an excellent game plan, they executed pretty well,” said R-MC head coach Nathan Davis. “But having said that, we were able to fight through some pretty serious adversity and found a way.” Most of R-MC’s adversity came in the form of 6-8 junior center Cory Boone, who is the only player on the Crusaders’ roster over 6-6. But he proved

McGraw said. “We are young this year, having two freshmen and several sophomores on the team…Our goal is to build up his confidence and to continue to work as a team. Players are fun to watch, but teams win championships.” McGraw feels the team will look different from a season ago but perhaps more talented. “Our

a handful for R-MC on both offense and defense. Boone, who came into the contest averaging 3.7 blocks per game, recorded a double-double, 20 points and 11 rebounds before fouling out. It was Boone and the collapsing Crusader defense that limited R-MC to six field goals inside the arc in the second half and overtime. “He’s real long and usually he comes off the weak side,” said R-MC senior center Brandon Braxton. “Even if we post sets from another big, he’s still pretty big he’s still coming across and blocking shots so, it was pretty hard to get the ball inside.” With 1:12 left in regulation, Macon trailed 51-44 after only making three second half field goals and the players admitted their were doubts in their mind. speed of play is a little slower this year than last year, but our skill level is much improved,” he said. “Sean Mullican and Cary Joseph are going to surprise our opponents. They do not look fast, but they have a deceptive quality with their speed. “This year, we may start off a little slower than last year, but I believe we have the opportunity to go further, so long as we remain healthy and keep working as a team.”

“(I was) seeing my career flash before my eyes,” Braxton said. “It was scary.” But R-MC’s seniors suddenly came alive, limiting Alverina to one point in the final 2:33 of regulation. On offense guard Eric Pugh drilled a three then Chesterfield

native Jordan Brown took a charge to give R-MC the ball once again. Jones looped in a shot under the basket then fouled Boone with 28.6 seconds to play to stop the clock. Boone missed his second attempt to set up Jones’ gametying three. In overtime, Alverina once again edged ahead 59-57 with 1:34 to play. But Jones, who led R-MC with 14 points, 12 in the second half, took the ball into the paint to draw the fifth foul on Boone. He then tied the game from the free throw line. With under a minute to play, R-MC got the ball back following a Crusader turnover, but nearly gave Alvernia a chance to even the game. “I drove baseline and tried passing to Danny,” Pugh said. “But instead of bounce passing

it I tried to do a shovel pass and it got deflected.” With the ball on the floor and the clock winding down a mad scramble ensued. “I tried to dive on it, a couple of people tried to dive on it and Lamar (Giggetts ) came up with it.” With 50 seconds remaining, Giggetts came away with the ball under the goal and put in the game-winning score. After a see-saw first 10 minutes, the Yellow Jackets defense

clamped down holding Alvernia for 10 minutes without a field goal. But at the same time RMC’s offense wasn’t much more productive and only opened a 29-23 halftime lead despite shooting 46.2 percent from the floor. Four of R-MC’s first five shots were 3’s as Boone stymied the inside attack of the Yellow Jackets while scoring nearly half of Alverina’s points on inside moves.

Lauren Brummell also college standout UMBC Sr. from Hanover Position: 2B When it comes to local softball players making their mark in college, Lauren Brummell stands at the top of the peak. Entering her senior year at UMBC, Brummell is on the verge of becoming the Retriever career leader in multiple categories. Entering this season, Brummell was eighth in doubles (35), eighth in triples (8), ninth in extra base hits (54) and tied for 17th in home runs (11). As a junior lead-off hitter, Brummell led UMBC with 34 runs scored, triples and stolen bases (seven on 10 attempts). She batted .286 with a .476 slugging percentage and a .339 on base percentage. She was named to the American East All-Rookie team as a freshman and AllConference Second Team as a sophomore as well as ECAC All-Star honors. As a junior Brummell was named American

East Player of the Week twice. Lauren is the daughter of Tom and Deena Brummell. Coach Joe French on Brummell: “Lauren is one of the best players in my 10 years at UMBC. She has a chance to join the sacred 200-hit club, which only has eight members. She is a great team player who has been a joy to coach. She is a role model student-athlete who will be a complete success in life and is one of the key players this year, as she has been all four years. She is a true leader with a great work ethic.”

Hanover senior Shreve Rohle made the decision to continue his football career in college at Hampden-Sydney College. At 5-11, 175 lbs, Shreve has been recruited as a strong safety/ outside linebacker. With the Tigers, Shreve will be joining his brother, running back Kirk Rohle. Rhole’s decision marks the sixth consecutive year a Hanover Hawk has gone on to play football at H-SC. During his four years at Hanover, Rohle played on two Central Region Championship and two runner-up teams.

In 2010 he was 1st team AllDistrict as a linebacker and 2nd team All-Metro. Rhole led the team with 77 tackles, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and three forced fumbles.

GIRLS SOCCER PREVIEW

Toss-up season should provide soccer excitement By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com This spring should bring an interesting and tightly contested battle among county teams in the Capital District girls soccer race. Last year’s defending champion Atlee lost nearly a third of its roster to graduation. Hanover, which finished second in the regular season had only five players depart with last year’s senior class and returns a substantial number of AllDistrict players. While young once again, Lee-Davis showed growth at the end of last season by knocking off Hanover in the district tournament and like the Hawks return an abundance of recognized players. And though Atlee would appear to be lacking in numbers this season, the other teams know that they’re still Atlee. “It’s just one of those things,” said Lee-Davis head coach Brad Dalton. “Until somebody beats Atlee I’m labeling them the favorite because they have the history. Hanover and us battled it out the last three years in the district tournament and I’d say this year all three teams are going to be within a step of each other. “I know that the players Bruce has returning at Atlee, what coach wouldn’t like to have that nucleolus of players to build a team around,” Dalton said. “And Whitney’s done a really good job at Hanover in molding that team into what she wants and they’re so competitive, they’ve very disciplined. That really speaks volumes about where all three of our programs are that we can all three

compete year in and year out for that district title.” ATLEE The perennial district frontrunner Raiders will have work to do this season in finding a way to replace not only 2010 Player of the Year Brittany Hill but four other All-District selections as well. Therefore head coach Bruce Lovelace has his work cut out for him. “Lost my backs, my keeper, attacking player, so basically I’ve got to rebuild my whole back system,” he said. While Lovelace has no player of Hill’s caliber to occupy the goal this season, he feels he has talent that could potentially reach that level. “We have a freshman that has potential,” he said. “She’s not a Brittany Hill yet, and to be honest I’ve got players who were back up keepers in the past that are good. But we’re

going to miss Brittany but we’ll be all right. Goal is going to be an important position.” When it comes to scoring, Lovelace has far less concerns. Senior mid Kim Glymph and junior Sam Armentrout return as first team selections from a year ago. Also back are junior mid Ashley Riefner, a second team selection who was arguably left off the first team, sophomore mid Lindsay Wilkins (2nd team) and senior defense Lindsey Grizzard (Honorable Mention). “We have a good core and I have some really good support players so the question again is going to be defending,” Lovelace said. Armentrout, Riefner and Glymph were scoring machines last season so Lovelace is comfortable with his offense. However, because he lacks experience on defense he hopes games do not turn into shootouts. “I’ll take a 54 win but I hope that’s not what it comes down to,” he said. “My heart can’t take that. “The question for us is going to be defending. I think we’re alright as far as the other parts it’s being able to defend, that’s the big question mark.” LEE-DAVIS Last season the Confederates were the youngest team in the district and that does not change this year. However, this season the C-feds are young, talented and experienced. Over the course of his tenure with the Confederates File photos by Charlie Leffler/The Local

Atlee’s Lindsey Grizzard, left, and Lee-Davis keeper Megan Dover are two unsung heroes from last season who will look to continue their impact this spring.

“They’ve been major contributors to the team and we just feel that putting all three of them together in the midfield gives us a solid nucleolus in the midfield to build the rest of the team around,” Dalton said. Also back are juniors Nicole Kirkwood (2nd team defense), Alissa Kelly (2nd team defense) and Megan Dover (honorable mention keeper). Dalton feels that the addition of Dover midway through last season turned the team around. “She came up about halfway through the year from the JV team and that’s really where we hit our nice little run during the season last year,” he said. “With her having a year’s worth of experience, she’s really playing at a higher level this year so we’re really excited about the leadership coming from the back.” HANOVER Like Lee-Davis, Hanover returns a wealth of talent this season but lost one of their best players to injury. Senior Taylor Culley, a first However, team All-District selection on there is still plenty defense in 2010 will miss the of talent in the C-fed season due to injury. cabinet. Senior mid But even without Liz Donnini returns as Culley, the Hawks an All-District first team return seven players selection for the past two who are on the Allyears. Last year she was District slates a year also first team All-Region, ago. Junior mid Honorable Mention All-State Kristen Palmer and Second Team All-Metro. was a first “She brings a wealth of team leadership and positive work ethic to the team,” Dalton said. Joining Donnini will be fellow All-District selections, seniors Sarah Wright (1st team forward), Ashley Oswald (2nd team mid) and Kristen Napier (honorable mention defense). Donnini, Wright and Oswald are four-year starters. head coach Brad Dalton has managed to keep his losses to a minimum by maintaining even numbers from classes on his roster. “It’s one of those things just for whatever reason it’s worked out we’ve got a good cross section of seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen,” he said. “I think the thing that excites us most about the upcoming season is how well the freshmen have integrated themselves into the returning players.” Ironically, the biggest loss this season for the C-feds came from a player who returns to the team. Senior forward Yoella Lopez, a first team selection last season, suffered an off-season ACL injury and will not play this spring. Lopez has been the Confederates’ leading scorer for the past two seasons and became the first female soccer player in Lee-Davis history to sign a Div. I soccer scholarship while still i n school.

member last year while seniors Nicole Shelton and LeeAnne Kesler were second team defenders. Junior mids Jordan Davis and Lauren Kesler were second team selections and senior defense Brittany Matthews was an Honorable Mention. The biggest change for the Hawks will come with Shelton stepping out of the goal. Freshman Caroline Crowder will take over the keeper position freeing up Shelton on the field. “We have high expectations for her this year and she had a great showing at our first scrimmage against Matoaca,” said head coach Whitney Harpold. “This will be Nicole Shelton’s fourth year on varsity and she will be happy to be more on the field instead of being in the goal.” Senior forward Maria Piccolomini will bring championship experience after leading the Hanover field hockey team to their first district title. Hanover boasted one of the strongest defenses in the league last season and they hope to transfer that intensity to the offense this season. Other newcomers to keep an eye on will be Alivia Thorn and Kristina Kilgore. “Losing to Lee Davis in a shoot out last year will be a great motivator for this year,” Harpold said. “We always want to improve from what we did the year before. Our hope as always is to win the district and h a v e a good showing at regionals.”
