I’d like to applaud the Business Council for their foresight in identifying workforce as a critical issue.” Many who attended last week’s forum echoed that sentiment. “Many business leaders continue to note that finding and retaining those employees

I’m thinking about ordering it.” Then the cartoon-like light bulb went off over my head. “Do you live in Mechanicsville?” I asked her. With her “yes” response, I asked if she reads The Local. Another “yes” response. I told her my mother has a great recipe for meat loaf. I followed by asking if she would be interested in The Local spotlighting recipes. There was an immediate spark of enthusiasm to the notion. OK, fast forward to last Monday when, while attending a picnic of the Pamunkey Woman’s Club, the subject of recipes came up in conversation (mostly because there were so many tasty items members had prepared). So, once again, the opportunity presented itself to ask about interest and participation. The proposal was well received, which means it’s time to get this in motion. I hope to kick off the recipes/food page (haven’t quite decided on a name/title yet) in the next month. This is where you rush into the kitchen and sort through your favorite recipes — because we know you want to share them. Whether it’s your mother’s meat loaf recipe (and, yes, you can expect to see my mom’s version) or Brunswick Stew (we all know that’s a favorite here, especially in fundraisers), let’s get this food page going. Is your mouth watering thinking about all the delicious delights we’ll be spotlighting on the page? Yummy! Please send recipes to mkinser@ mechlocal.com or call 746-1235, ext. 22. Melody Kinser

Three reasons to support Lorie Foley for School Board (Editor’s note: The following was addressed to the Hanover County Board of Supervisors.) We live on Virginia Street in Ashland. We have two rising third graders at John Gandy and a rising kindergartener soon to be at Henry Clay. I am a teacher, including five years in public schools in Virginia, and a writer who focuses on education and on education policy in particular. I am a PTA member and will serve on the PTA Board at both Henry Clay and John Gandy for the 2012-2013 school year. My husband is an assistant professor at RandolphMacon College and serves on the board of the Ashland Youth Soccer League and on the Parks and Recreation Committee for the Town of Ashland. We both volunteer at Henry Clay and John Gandy and both greatly value public education. We are writing to support the appointment of Lorie Foley to the Ashland seat on the Hanover County School Board. We recommend Lorie for three reasons. First, we’ll reiterate what so many people said at the public hearing on May 9, 2012: Lorie has a tremendous relationship with and knowledge of our community. We have only been in Ashland for three years, but, due to her activism and presence in the community, we knew of LorieFoley’s work right away. Second of all, we agree whole-heartedly with what Lorie’s sister, Kathy Abbot, said at the hearing: Lori is a parent of children currently in Hanover County Public Schools. As fellow parents, this is important to us. Studies, including a major report by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory (SEDL), show that parental involvement in the education of their children is a key factor in high student achievement. Lorie’s presence on the School Board and outreach to fellow parents will surely serve to motivate more parents to get involved in our schools. Finally, although not a traditional teacher, Lorie is an educator herself. Even better, she’s an arts educator. With so much emphasis on math and reading these days, the arts get short shrift. Recent studies for example, one conducted by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) show a high correlation between arts education and student achievement. My own children are high academic achievers, but art and music are two of the reasons they go to school. One of my sons participated in the summer theater camp directed by Lorie at the Hanover Arts and Activities Center and the other participated in a series of afterschool art workshops organized by Lorie at John Gandy. They both

had wonderful experiences. We badly need more and richer arts education in our schools and we badly need a parent and an arts educator and advocate’s perspective among our public education decision makers. We urge you to appoint Lori eFoley to the Hanover County School Board. Thank you for your time and consideration and for your service. Rachel Levy and Cedar Riener Ashland

Thank you to L-DHS and HHS sports (Editor’s note: The following was sent to sports editor Charlie Leffler.) I am writing you as I would like to post a thank you to the Lee-Davis and Hanover sports and beyond community. My son Drew Shelton was the starting goalie for the Lee-Davis/Hanover game last night (Wedesday, May 16) and 8 minutes into the game he had an accident that left him leaving in an ambulance and with 15 to 20 stitches in his ear and severe concussion. When the incident occurred parents were asking about my other children (which were not even there) to see if I needed them to help. Other parents were hunting down my husband, he was at work. The trainers and other staff were tending to my son and have called to follow-up. I can’t express the support of e-mails, calls, texts, Twitter and Facebook posts from the community. Players were going to a hospital that Drew was not even at in hopes of seeing him. Other players were losing sleep over his injury. Individuals that I did not even know existed were willing to give a hand whenever and where ever needed. In today’s times this is not expressed enough in the see LETTERS, pg. 8 `

For normal driving conditions, simply insert the penny into your tires with Lincoln pointing toward you and upside down. Insert the penny with Lincoln’s head pointed toward the tire. Then take the penny and stick it in several tread grooves on your tires. If part of Lincoln’s head is always covered, then you have at least 2/32” tread wear left. Most state laws deem your tires to be worn out if the tread is less than 2/32”. For more extreme weather conditions, like driving in rain, ice or snow, you will want to turn your penny around so that the Lincoln Memorial is facing you and is upside down. If your tread covers the top of the Memorial, then you’ve got at least 6/32” tread wear left. If it does not, then it’s time to get new tires before making another trip out in these conditions.

Delegate steps up? In Ms. Kinser’s column on “Delegate steps up with wallet ready,” she seems to praise Del. John Cox for his willingness to “accept additional financial responsibility as a businessman instead of placing the burden on motorists traveling our states highways.” She also says “kudos to Cox for stepping up.” Del. Cox was going against the governor by saying it would be better to place a gas tax on all motorists in the state than place tolls on highways presuming

environments; reflecting and adapting to meet the needs of learners; and providing a variety of instructional strategies and assessments. “I see the teaching profession as an opportunity toserve my students and the community by providing a positive learning experience for all students, “Sigel said.

our interstates. And although I do not like tolls road and was happy when Richmond Petersburg Turnpike dropped its tolls, aybe she should consider that tolls on highways place the cost of those highways more on those that use them, and less than on the overall general public. And as Del. Cox has trucks running up and down the Interstates, he is much better off by having all the citizens of the state pay for something they do not use than letting those that use the roads foot the majority of the bill. Maybe before we start pass-

ing out “kudos,” Ms. Kinser should weigh the pros and cons of any action and think about the economic impact both actions may have on a business and /or the general public. Maybe she should compare in her piece why the governor wants to raise tolls and his argument for it with why Del. Cox’s idea is better or not. Or maybe she just couldn’t get past her “first thought.” She states “when an elected official is ready to take a hit in his own wallet.” Did you ask yourself “why?” and is it truly that “noteworthy?” Robert Crossman Mechanicsville

Good Shepherd UMC joins in building Habitat’s 40th house

M

embers of the Good Shepherd United Methodist Church recently picked up their hammers and headed to the build site in Ashland of Hanover Habitat for Humanity’s 40th house. They worked alongside other volunteers to cut and hang trim and to caulk and paint on the inside. Even though rain arrived in the afternoon, no one complained. Sharon Walker, the wife of Good Shepherd’s pastor Ed Walker, was busy with a caulk gun in hand and said she sees this experience as part of the church’s outreach. “This gives members the opportunity to give their time and talents to make a difference in other people’s lives. It’s a nice way to see results of hands-on work in the community.” The 1,600-square-foot house is already under roof. The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home is the first two-story structure for Hanover Habitat. Good Shepherd’s five volunteers put in a full day’s work. Once construction on the house

is finished in June, it will be the end of a long journey for a hard-working single mother and her four children. She will be able to live in a safe, stable home with her family. Several volunteers from Good Shepherd had experience in doing that kind of work. Rick Rice measured and operated the table saw to cut trim for the new living room. “I enjoy helping people in need. Working with Hanover Habitat for Humanity is good outreach for our church,” he said. Dave Bennett has been remodeling houses for years. He was busy installing cement board for the new tile floor in the laundry room. “This is part of our ministry and mission to help provide a home for a family.” Though skilled at measuring and nailing trim, it was more than his talent for building that brought Charles Maranda out on a spring morning. “I really like the openness of our church. I have two kids and everyone knows and loves them. My son is the one who asked me to volunteer today. Good Shepherd teaches our kids about the importance of volunteering to help others in need.”

There’s another woman and her children who understand the value of volunteering. Wendy Morgan has logged in many hours to help build this house. The home she is working on will be for her and her children. Once the house is ready, the Morgan family will be able to move out of a cramped overcrowded apartment. Building a house is a certainly a challenge, but Wendy said her life has been full of challenges. Margo Olsen, a longtime member of Good Shepherd, was doing her part to bring the Morgans one step closer to this life-changing reality. She carefully taped along the fresh trim in preparation for painting. “We are doing God’s work. We are providing a service for a deserving family.” How to volunteer An affordable home of their own is still a distant reality for many hard-working families in the Metro Richmond area. For these families, a home provides a sense of stability and a foundation from which to build the rest of their lives. Hanover Habitat for Humanity is an interfaith nonprofit Christian

It seeks to eradicate substandard housing in Hanover County by encouraging all stakeholders to make affordable housing a matter of action and conscience. More than 40 congregations in Hanover County have participated in Habitat’s mission to provide low income families with decent, afford-

The $800,000 in reserve funds was originally slated to assist in the 2014 budget, but will now go towards the VRS increases. The increase hit the school district the hardest, with a $1 million increase, more than one-half of that offset with additional state funding in the final budget. County employees account for the remaining $400,000 in increases. “I’ll hold my nose and vote for this,” Mechanicsville District supervisor Canova Peterson said, reflecting the sentiments of other board members. The amendments transferring the $1.4 million passed unanimously. Hanover will become the spotlight of national attention as the Civil War Sesquicentennial celebration moves into its second year. Gaines Mill and Beaver Dam Creek will be forefront in the celebration, and the important anniversaries are garnering national attention. C-SPAN and other national media have expressed interest in being at the multiple events

Jim Ridolphi for The Local

David Ruth, above, superintendent of the Richmond Battlefield Parks, told the Hanover County Board of Supervisors that big events are planned for the upcoming 150th anniveraries of Gaines Mill and Beaver Dam Creek in Hanover. Father and son Mike and Jacob Walker, photo at right, were among the Boy Scouts and their families who attended the May 23 meeting. The scouts were working on citizenship merit badges.

planned for the anniversaries. “We have 82 events planned for 60 days,” said David Ruth, superintendent of the Richmond National Battlefield Parks. Jack Berry, president of the Richmond Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau and Convention Bureau, told board members that Hanover County has the tools to become an attraction destination that could rival Williamsburg in the number of visitors it attracts. “You could be right on the

heels of Williamsburg,” Berry said. He said Hanover has the perfect blend of historical, sports and recreational tourism opportunities. He said a major drawback to that tourism explosion is the lack of hotel beds in the county. There are currently close to 800 beds available in the county, far less than its neighboring localities. In another matter, South Anna District supervisor Wayne Hazzard recommended the board draft a resolution objecting to the Virginia Department of Transportation’s plan to initiate tolls on Interstate 95. He suggested the objection be sent to all of the county’s elected representatives and neighboring counties affected by the proposed plan. County attorney Sterling Rives said he would draft a document reflecting those views and present it for approval at

the next meeting. Public Works director Mike Flagg told the supervisors that the county needs better data before implementing plans to address upcoming Chesapeake Bay/Storm water requirements. Flagg said the current data is not precise and small differences in the percentage of lands affected could mean millions in future dollars. He asked the supervisors to appropriate the $66,000 needed to begin the project of collecting land use and said initial estimates of costs are sketchy, at best. “We need better information,” he said. Excluding roads, the local cost of the compliance could end up exceeding $70 million. That doesn’t include the administrative costs of running such a program. The board approved the request by a unanimous vote.

Living history event to be held Saturday at Polegreen church Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com The Historic Polegreen Church Foundation will host several family-friendly events this summer at the Rural Point Road site. On Saturday, June 2, the public is invited to visit the church site, which figured prominently in the Civil War story of Rural Plains and offers interpretation about these events. A local living history unit that has partnered with the Foundation in an effort to maintain the appearance of Polegreen’s newly enhanced site will offer several free programs for tourists, Civil War enthusiasts and families. These uniformed volunteers tell the story of the Civil War soldier in the Virginia Theater between 1861 and 1865. One artillery unit they often portray is the Richmond Howitzers, who, on June 1, 1864, were forced to fire on the church after Union sharpshooters claimed its position. Today, the modern gun crew of the Richmond Howitzers is giving back what the original gun crew was forced to take away. The schedule is: 10 a.m., camp opens; 11 a.m., historical overview, Battle of Totopotomoy Creek and infantry demonstration (weaponry, uniforms and equipment); 2p.m., historical overview, Battle of Totopotomoy Creek and infantry demonstration; and 4 p.m., program ends. A Lawn Chairs and Liberty Concert will be presented from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 12. Families are asked to bring their lawn chairs and picnics to Polegreen and enjoy the sound of the Commonwealth Bluegrass Band led by local artist Randy Cook.

New ADA terms may have big impact on some businesses By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local Businesses nationwide are scrambling to comply with the latest Americans with Disabilities Act of 2010. For some, it means just a small adjustment in access, but for others the new regulations could represent major change and expense for their operations. Bob Fitz of Koonz-Bryant P.C. spoke at Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Networking Breakfast on the pitfalls of the new regulations at the Hanover Business Council of the Greater Richmond Chamber. Fitz said the bill is being clarified and updated after it passed two years ago. He said some of the compliance regulations are burdensome and expensive. The new regulations took effect on March 15 of this year for new construction or alterations. Those buildings built under 1991 ADA regulations or have been altered for 1991 compliance are exempt from the new requirements thanks to a Safe Harbor clause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to remember is that if you are already in compliance with the old standards, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in good shape. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to make any changes,â&#x20AC;? Fitz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most businesses or organizations are

Third time is the charm for Raider’s softball Atlee downs L-D for Capital Tourney title By Jim Ridolphi Special Correspondent Atlee softball coach John Earley knew things would have to be different in this year’s Capital District Tournament. For the past two seasons, the Raiders have been eliminated in semifinal play with close upset losses to Hanover. They accomplished the first step in the process Thursday night with a 6-2 semifinal win over the No. 2 seed Hawks. Their next task was taking on defending state champion and No. 1 seed Lee-Davis.

The No. 3 seed Raiders jumped to a 3-0 lead in the first two innings on their way to 4-2 victory and their first Capital District Tournament championship in recent memory. “Getting over that hump gave us some confidence and we were relaxed and ready to play tonight,” Earley said. “We wanted to be patient at the plate and make their pitcher work. I thought we did that early tonight” Both teams have qualified for regional play next week. After two earlier season losses to the C-Feds, including a bottom of the 7th inning collapse a week earlier, Earley said his team wanted to show they

could play with and win against the best. “We wanted to come out tonight and prove that we could beat them,” Earley said. “They came out here and did that tonight, hit the ball well and executed in the field; so it will boost their confidence going in to the regionals.” Atlee jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead, pushing across a run in the first inning on two LeeDavis errors. “I can’t remember when we’ve had two errors in see SOFTBALL, pg. 30 ` Jim Ridolphi/For The Local

Patriots complete repeat in Colonial softball By David Halstead Special Correspondent It came a day late than originally scheduled, but for the Patrick Henry softball team, their second straight Colonial District Tournament Championship was just as sweet.

claim the district tournament title. Scheduled to be played Thursday night, the teams had to wait until Friday to hit the field because of rain. The delay didn’t seem to faze the Patriots. Senior pitcher Emma Mitchell was brilliant from the circle. Pitching in her 18th game this season, Mitchell kept the Wildcats guessing all night and solid infield play behind her kept Deep Run scoreless. “I threw okay tonight. Madison (Gilman) did a really good job calling pitches,” Mitchell said. “It definitely wasn’t my best game, but my defense did a really great job

backing me up.” After two quiet innings of play, the Patriot bats woke up in the bottom of the third when Paige Mitchell smacked a linedrive double to center-field to open up the inning. After a pop out and ground out, Mitchell stole third base. Two pitches later, Deep Run hurler Eme Anderson let one get away from her as the ball flew aimlessly to the backstop. Mitchell stole home on the wild pitch to produce the game’s first run. Deep Run threatened in the top of the fourth with runners reaching second and third, but

Raiders hot when it counts most

Atlee upsets Hanover for district title By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local

The Atlee Raiders entered the 2012 Capital District baseball tournament in a less-thanauspicious fashion following a particularly bad shellacking at Lee-Davis to end regular season play. But they did not let the drubbing get them down, and – after earning a berth in the title game Friday – dominated top-seeded Hanover on its own field to claim the Capital District championship with a 6-1 victory. Atlee pitcher Taylor Crowe surprised even himself by going the distance, scattering four hits over seven innings to earn the win. “I was ready for it. I didn’t think it would happen against one of these kind of teams. Not getting tired and keeping the ball low kept me in it,” Crowe said. “It was hard. They’re a really good team with a lot of power in their lineup. You can’t leave it up to them.” When he stepped up to the

mound in the seventh, he was a believer. “I’m going to finish this game,” was what he said went through his mind. “Nothing is going to get me out of here now.” Crowe got a bit of a shock when he gave up a two-out double to Hanover shortstop Andrew Knizner – the Hawks’ only extra-base hit of the day. “I was mad because I threw it right down the middle,” Crowe said. “Right down the middle and he drove it right down the line. I wanted to strike him out.” Crowe had no need to worry. He trusted his defense and that faith paid off. In the game, Crowe struck out only two batters, the other outs coming on 16 fly-outs and three groundouts – the game ended on Hawks’ catcher Bryant Lowry’s groundout to second base. As Crowe walked to the dugout with a big smile on his face, he was mobbed by his teammates. “They outplayed us. They were better,” said Hanover assistant coach Russ Abernathy.

“They were better pitching. They were better hitting. They were better in all aspects of the game. My hat’s off to them. They deserved to win the championship.” Abernathy said Crowe’s offspeed pitches gave the Hawks (18-4) fits. “We just didn’t make adjustments to his off-speed stuff and he was throwing it for strikes,” Abernathy said. “He was tough. He really was. … He pitched great.” Crowe’s only mistake was in hitting Lowry in the bottom of the third. Lowry advanced on left fielder Chris Childress’ groundout to third and scored on designated hitter Keith Searles’ single. Atlee (14-8) did a better job of taking advantage of what was given them to score. Center fielder Chop Pulisic opened the third inning with a walk. He was sacrificed to second by shortstop Dalton Ruch and driven in by the first of left fielder Kenner Berry’s three doubles of the day. Third baseman Brent West singled Berry in. The Raiders added another run in the fourth. First baseman

Atlee boys repeat as Central Region Outdoor champions By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Though they only amassed 72 points, Atlee earned a repeat as the Central Region Outdoor boys champion by virtual runaway in a highly competitive meet. The Raiders finished 15 points ahead of runner-up Highland Springs in a meet where only 14 points separated second from sixth.

wild pitch. Swecker scored on Pulisic’s second double. Ruch walked. Berry drove Harmon and Pulisic in with his third double. “Kenner Berry swung the bat really well for them,” Abernathy said. “But all their guys did. They had good at-bats. They got men on. They got them over. And they figured out a way to get them in. That’s really what this game is all about.” Atlee coach Barry Burton said turning the tables on No. 2 seed Lee-Davis with a 5-2 extrainning victory, in a twice-postponed district semifinal, gave the Raiders a boost going into the final. “It tells you exactly what’s in [the Raiders],” Burton said. “They’ve got the guts, the heart and the fight to do something like this. That’s not two rinkydink teams we just put away. (Both are ranked in the TimesDispatch Top-10) I’ve got all the respect in the world for them, so do our guys. This ain’t going to happen without some guts and some grit.” He had plenty of praise for

Crowe. “What you saw out there on the mound tonight was impressive,” Burton said. “I don’t expect anybody to go the distance, to be honest with you. You ask [the pitcher] to keep you in the game. … He has done a great job for us when he’s gotten to pitch. He’s tough.” Hanover pitcher Chris Childress was named Capital District Player of the Year and the Hawks’ Charlie Dragum earned Coach of the Year honors.

Aggressive Hawks handle Raiders 6-1 Snider dons birthday hat trick in victory By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Hanover boy’s soccer team battled through mud, blood, rain and pain over the course of the season. On Thursday evening, it was just more of the same when they faced top-seeded Atlee in the Capital District championship. However, this time the outcome was different. With a chance to secure the school’s first boys soccer trophy, the Hawks were aggressive from the start, raced out to a 4-1 first half lead then ran away with the championship 6-1. “I tell you what, for our seniors it was a good story,” said Hanover head coach Brian Smith. “We had a rocky road and to finally put Atlee under before hitting the regionals, it gives us momentum, it gives us a trophy and it gives us a district championship and that’s what it’s all about.” After coming close in previous seasons, it seemed all Hanover needed to take the title was play away from home. Postponements due to weather reeked havoc with the tournament schedule and forced the boy’s championship to be played at Lee-Davis rather than Hanover as has been the norm. It was the fourth meeting between the two teams this season and second in four days. On Monday evening, Atlee edged out the Hawks 2-1 in a contest to decide the top seed in the district tournament and the automatic berth in regional play. Hanover (14-2-1) and Atlee (13-2-1) came into the championship contest as the No. 6 and No. 7 ranked teams in last week’s Times-Dispatch boy’s soccer poll but after being sep-

arated by one point in their three previous face-offs, the title match turned into a lopsided affair early on. The difference was motivation from previous frustrating finishes. “The difference tonight was this was the senior’s last game against Atlee,” Smith said. “It was a special moment and our seniors rose up and it was already decisive before half.” Hanover senior Travis Borkey concurred. “I think it was that feeling that this is our last chance to play as a team and put it together and score,” he said. “We had our chances this year, we played them three times this year, we just didn’t put our chances away and we knew this was our last opportunity.” The victory has extra meaning for Hanover senior Cole Snider, who was also celebrat-

ing his birthday. “I just turned 18 today so it’s a nice birthday present,” he said. Snider traded his birthday hat for a hat trick against the Raiders, scoring three goals in the championship. But more surprising than Snider’s accomplishment in the game was that he was on the field at all. “He typifies our team,” Smith said. “He had a multiple ACL tears and to come back and to shine like this at this moment. Again, it’s the perfect ending to the perfect story.” Snider battled through rehab for a chance to rejoin his teammates for his senior season. “It’s been definitely tough recovering and I don’t even know how I’m still holding up now, but it’s holding up,” he said. “My doctor wasn’t even supposed to clear me but he cleared me. He was like, ‘You

can play until I guess it tears again’ and it’s held up all season so it’s been nice.” Snider’s medical history did not slow him down in the championship. He went full throttle from the first second of action. “I’m going all out,” he said. “If I’m going to tear it, I’m going to tear it going all out.” In the sixth minute of play, Snider opened the scoring by fighting his way through a crowd in front of the goal to slip the ball past Atlee keeper Sam Smith. The Raiders appeared to tie the game two minutes later but the goal was disallowed on a penalty. Atlee saw few other attempts come as close. In the 23rd minute, Hanover senior Alex Taddiken connected on a solo shot to push the lead to 2-0. Soon afterward, Taddiken went down with an injury and had to be carried from the

game. He is considered questionable for Hanover’s regional opener. Atlee got their only score of the game when freshman forward Brad Robertson drew Hanover keeper Tommy Hurst out then threaded a perfect shot into the left side. With less than six minutes remaining in the half, Snider scored in close once again, driving a shot off the hand of a diving Smith and in for a 3-1 lead. Borkey, who earned Player of the Year honors for the second straight season, pushed the lead to 4-1 in the final two minutes off a penalty shot that he rocketed in from the left corner of the box. In the second half, Hanover saw freshman Nick Gulas and senior Dylan Renick both head to the bench with bloody noses. It did not slow the Hawks, who came in known for being an

aggressive team. “They’ve very big and they’re very fast and they don’t mind mixing it up,” said Atlee coach Steve Thompson. “So stigma or no stigma you’d better be ready to deal with it. Monday we were ready to deal with it and tonight we weren’t.” For Coach Smith, competition has dictated the need for more aggressive play. “All in all we’re big, we’re aggressive, it’s our hallmark,” he said. “You’ve got to be these days when you look at our region. We’ve got some of these teams that are nationally ranked in the Top10. You’ve got to be big and strong.” Junior back Scott Carol pushed the Hawks’ lead to 5-1 midway through the second half and Snider donned his hat trick in style winning a one-on-one battle in the box

Alley O’Dell flew out to Ellen Davidson in left-field to record the third out. Both teams remained silent until Patrick Henry tacked on three insurance runs in bottom of the sixth. Senior catcher Madison Gilman’s sacrifice fly to center-field scored Sam Moore to make it 2-0. “At that point, I was just trying to put the ball in play more to the right side to get the run in,” Gilman said.

Patriots another district crown. Patrick Henry’s Matt Crowder was named as Colonial District Coach of the Year for the third straight season and sixth time in his tenure at Patrick Henry. “I have had some great players over the years and I owe everything to them,” Crowder said. “I have some really good assistant coaches too and they don’t get a lot of credit.” The Patriots landed seven players on the all-district teams. Emma Mitchell, who plans to walk on at the University of Virginia next season, was named Pitcher of the Year for the third straight season. Katie Woody was named Colonial District Player of the Year. “Emma, as far as pitching, has been dynamite the last three years,” Crowder said. “She definitely earned Pitcher of the Year in the district and I think she took third in the 4x800 relay. Hanover’s Lucas Nachman, Mario Piccolomini, Blake Woodring and James Poyer were eighth in the event. Patrick Henry’s Travis Phillips had a solid showing, He won the 110 hurdles with a time of 14.72. Lee-Davis’ Tyrell Eaton came in fifth. Phillips also won the 300 hurdles with a time of 39.31. Eaton was third, and Atlee’s Bennett fifth. Lee-Davis junior Wesley Jones finished seventh in the 200 then teamed up with Eaton, Blake Stattleman and Dequante Brown for a seventh place finish in the 4x400 relay. Patrick Henry finished 12th in team scoring, Lee-Davis 16th and Hanover 27th. In the girls competition, Patriot senior Jessica Shelton won the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.00, :00.02 seconds ahead of Hanover senior Mackenzie Scott. Atlee freshman Carly Feyerabend was third and Lee-Davis sophomore Shakiya Sheppard fifth. Scott took third in the 300 hurdles while Shelton was fifth.

Below right: The Raiders face early adversity when senior Captain Sam Armentrout suffered injury and did not return.

Unbeaten Atlee holds off Hawks By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com This year the Capital District Championships proved that being the top seed wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Of the four sports played, only a single No. 1 seed came away with a trophy. But even that one title did not come easy. Atlee claimed the Capital District girl’s soccer championship, but of the six straight trophies for the Raiders, 2012 may go down as the hardest to achieve. No. 2 seed Hanover (13-4) gave Atlee (18-0) everything they had, missing on two opportunities to tie the game in the final minute before falling to 3-2. With the win Atlee seniors Sammy Florimo, Ashley Riefner, Caila Mullen, Sam Armentrout and Katie Tilson can now claim a championship in all four of their high school seasons. “It’s awesome that I’ve done it four years in a row,” said Riefner who earned Capital District Player of the Year honors. “It just shows how hard our team’s worked over the past couple of years.”

Playing in extreme heat for one of the few times this season, both teams faced an environment they were not used to. “Honestly I’m concerned about conditioning still even though it’s late in the season,” said Atlee coach Bruce Lovelace. “We’ve had a lot of shorter games. I was concerned.” Though cramping and exhaustion affected both sides, the Raiders quickly faced greater adversity losing two starters to injury in the first eight minutes of the game. A little over one minute in, Atlee freshman Molly Shields went down with a leg injury after her solo attack produced a collision with Hanover keeper Caroline Crowder. Seven minutes later, the Raiders suffered a more devastating loss when Capital District first team senior captain Sam Armentrout took an inadvertent shot to the face which resulted in an apparent broken nose and was out for the remainder of the contest. The player most affected by the absence of Armentrout was Riefner, as the two had formed a long-standing talented tandem for the Raiders. “She’s been like my best friend forever so it felt weird

without her on the field with me,” Riefner said. “But I thought we pulled it together and kind of got the win for Sam and for ourselves.” With Armentrout out, Lovelace was forced to make changes. “It’s a tough adjustment but as a team we played through it so I wasn’t too worried,” he said. “A lot of people stepped up. “I did a rotation,” Lovelace said. “We were experimenting. I have a starting lineup and they play most of the time so it was partly my fault for not adjusting more, but the players went in and did what they were supposed to do.” Atlee appeared to grab the lead in the 18th minute when Lindsay Wilkins sent a header into the net past Crowder’s fingertips, but the goal was disallowed on a penalty. But the Raiders saw the opposite side of luck two minutes later when Brooke Jerman placed a perfect corner kick from the left side in front of the net which produced an own-goal and a 1-0 Atlee lead. It only took Hanover three minutes to answer when Annie Sadler split the defense to cross a shot from the right side past Raiders’ keeper Jordan Smith. It was Shields, back on the

field, who put Atlee back on top. In the 14th minute, Shields drove in tight, drew Crowder out in the box then scored past her. Hanover’s Joe Broscious, who earned Coach of the Year honors, made adjustments to compensate for Atlee’s attack. “I noticed that Coach Lovelace kind of opted for a little more speed up top and so I tried to adjust my lineup to combat that,” he said. “I think that was about the middle of the first half when he made that change. I think it took us kind of the rest of the first half to get re-acclimated to where everybody was new and I think the second half they finally did a much better job of shutting down.” The Hawks had two opportunities to tie the game in the first but Atlee’s Smith, who finished with five saves, smothered both attempts. But in the 48th minute, Hawk senior forward Shelby Hooe took a feed from the left side and slipped the ball past Smith to knot the game 2-2. The effort was something that pleased Broscious. “It seems like every time we’ve played them, we’ve kind of had to play catch-up,” he said. “They’ve always gotten on the board first and so I think that

kind of leads to it a little bit more, maybe a little panic that they need to make something happen immediately. So give credit to the girls, they came back and tied twice.” Atlee had four more legitimate chances to retake the lead but Crowder, who finished with seven saves, was there to end each of them. In the 73rd minute, Atlee took the lead for good when Riefner connected on a penalty kick, driving the ball into the left corner past a diving Crowder. Though disappointed with the loss, Brocsious could not complain about his team’s effort. “I told the girls before the game that I don’t want us to be okay with just being able to play with them,” he said. “We’re at the point where we’re up to the line now, we’ve just got to take that step over and we gave it everything we had tonight. They have a great team over there.” After getting three close wins over the Hawks, Lovelace would not be surprised to see them for a fourth time. “It was a tough game. Hanover played well,” he said. “I’m looking forward to seeing how they can do in regionals and we can meet them again in the regional finals.” As for the Raiders’ own pros-

pects, Riefner believe they can go far. “I honestly think that if we work hard we can definitely make it to states,” she said. “We’re just going to have to play that soccer that we know we can do.” Atlee opens regional play on Tuesday, May 29, hosting Prince George while Hanover travels to Thomas Dale.

the game,” Coach Jackie Davis said. “We have to come out and play from start to finish and we didn’t do that tonight. Those two first inning mistakes set the tone tonight, and that’s all Atlee needed to get going.” The Raiders added two more in the second inning anchored by a two-run homer from catcher Cameron Hall. The sophomore was ready and waiting for one particular pitch and she got it. “I knew I was only going to get one inside pitch to work with, and I saw it coming and I felt it. It felt good,” Hall said. Atlee pitcher Jessica Holte stumped the L-D lineup, holding them to just three hits. “I thought she controlled the plate well tonight,” Earley said. The C-Feds showed life in the sixth inning. Bolstered by two Raider errors, Lee-Davis plated two runs but it was too late and too little.

Jenkins honored Contributed report Radford junior pitcher Jackie Jenkins and senior shortstop Nichole Beall were selected to the NFCA Division I AllMid Atlantic Region Teams, announced Thursday morning by the National Fastpitch Association. It is the third first-team selection, a first in program history, for Beall, while Jenkins garners second-team recognition in back-to-back seasons. Jenkins, an Atlee alum, who is the second pitcher in program history to win back-to-back Big South Pitcher of the Year honors, was stellar in conference play, posting a league-best 10 wins and 1.37 ERA, while posting two shutouts and walking a Big South-low 1.28 batters per seven innings. She concluded her junior campaign 17-9 with a 2.16 ERA in 162 inning of work.
