Fairy Godmother Project helps families fight childhood cancer By Paula Neely for The Mechanicsville Local

The Fairy Godmother Project helped a Mechanicsville family by arranging for the volunteer services of Sarah Downey, a professional photographer, to take family photos. Tara and Craig Kilpatrick’s son Chase, second from left, was fighting cancer in 2011 and is doing very well now. His twin brother is Jake.

im Ludwig, mother of three and a full-time accountant, makes time each week to cook and deliver dinner to two Richmond area families who are battling pediatric cancer. Ludwig is one of a growing number of local volunteers who work with the recently formed Fairy Godmother Project to help make the lives of families whose children have cancer less stressful. The nonprofit charity began in Fredericksburg about 18 months

ago and opened a Richmond chapter in January. “I can’t imagine how hard it must be for these families to go through this. It makes me realize how lucky I am. Volunteering is a way for me to reach out to them and help them,” she said. The Fairy Godmother Project got

its name when Andie McConnell, who founded the Fredericksburg chapter, was helping a family so that they could take care of their 22-month-old daughter Evy, who had brain cancer. Evy’s mother dubbed Andie her fairy godmother and the movement began. Laura Leporati, volunteer coordinator for the Richmond chapter, said volunteers provide assistance with “little things” like meals, housework, yard work, organizing and other domestic duties that the parents can’t do because they are caring for their child. “It takes see FAIRY, pg. 4

The Transportation Department has been participating in the Department of Education’s “Virginia School Bus Driving Award Program for 30 years. Participation in the program requires drivers to operate a school bus 80 percent of the regular school year and to operate the vehicle without a preventable school bus collision or a proven violation of safe driving practices. Josephine Battenfield, a bus driver with 37 years of service, was named the Transportation Department Support Employee of the Year. Dr. Steve Trexler, principal of The Georgetown School, made a special presentation

the stress off and gives them time to focus on their child,” she said. Currently, the Richmond chapter is helping two families in Chesterfield County. One family has a 5-year-old daughter who has neuroblastoma cancer, and needs to travel to North Carolina for treatment. The other family has a 17year-old son who is fighting leukemia. “We would like to help more families,” Leporati said. Families who need assistance should fill out a request form available on the website and indicate the kind of support they would like to receive. The child’s doctor also will need to fill out a form. The Fairy Godmother Project welcomes more volunteers and business partners.

10150 Lakeridge Parkway in Ashland. The caravan is traveling from New Jersey to Georgia, with a Hanover County arrival expected around 3 p.m. Departure is set for 5 p.m. Vickie Fahed, a volunteer with MOMS, said they are working “to bring awareness to issues surrounding pet over-

population and the commonly practiced animal shelter cruelties such as the continued use of the gas chamber.” She also said that Animal Aid USA “is in need of both monetary donations as well as donations for food and other supplies, which can be found on their website, animalaidusa.org.”

For more information on the Hanover Tomato Festival, visit www.hanovertomatofestival.com or call 804-365-7150.

Leporati said the local chapter has about 20 volunteers. Volunteer application forms and more information about the organization are available on the website. Background checks and references are required. Training is provided. The charitable organization also seeks partnerships with local businesses that would be willing to provide gift cards, meals, cleaning, yard care and other goods and services. For example, Made To Sparkle Cleaning in Midlothian has donated cleaning services, Dream Dinners in Richmond has donated meals and sponsored a fundraising event, and area farms have donated produce. Professional photographers also have volunteered to take high quality family photos. “A lot of families say they’ll take them later, but ‘later’ never comes,” Leporati said.

Photographers interested in volunteering should contact Stephanie Johnson at Photos@ FairyGodmotherProject.org. Last year, the Fairy Godmother Project arranged for Sarah Downey, a professional photographer, to take photos of the Kilpatricks, a Mechanicsville family, whose son Chase was fighting cancer and is doing very well now. Individuals, churches, scout groups and other groups also may help by raising funds and donating gift cards that the families could use for gas, groceries, restaurants, etc. The Richmond Chapter’s application for 501(c)3 nonprofit certification is in progress. For more information, contact Leporati at 601-0639, Richmond@ FairyGodmotherProject.org or visit www.fairygodmotherproject.org.

‘The’ event is just a few days away for us The date was Saturday, July 5, 2008, and the location was Pole Green Park. And there were people everywhere. That’s the memory of my first experience with the Hanover Tomato Festival. This was a little more than a week before officially taking on the responsibilities of editor of The Mechanicsville Local. I made the trip from Winchester to check out “the” event, which had come up in conversations with publisher Joy Monopoli. Arriving around 1 p.m. — and this will come as no surprise — the park was filled with people and vehicles. Volunteers and staff were directing traffic with precision. OK, I won’t lie. I drove through, saw how massive the festival was, and headed out of the park. But, let’s not lose sight: It was my first experience with the Tomato Festival. Since that day four years ago, it’s been a must-do on the calendar. And this Saturday is no different. Now, I do arrive early to check out all the offerings and head for the tent/stage area for opening ceremonies and the announcements of the winners of the Tomato Festival Pageant. And if you’ve never attended one of the pageants, plan to next year. These girls are too cute — and some are simply hilarious, without even trying. They are so genuine and sincere. Even the shy ones bring a smile to one’s face. Director Lynn Watson does an incredible job every year with the pageant. To the Tomato Festival Committee, Hanover County Parks & Rec and the Black Creek Volunteer Fire Department, which started the festival in 1978, thank you for all your efforts. Oscar Watson of the BCVFD has been with the festival since day one. And, while we enjoy the one-day event, he’ll assure you they are working and planning year-round. The Hanover Tomato Festival runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. See you there! Melody Kinser

Can our president write the law? Absolutely not. We have the separation of powers: executive, legislative and judicial branches to avoid the concentration of too much power in the hands of too few people with no accountability -- no checks and balances. President Obama’s writing Laws, and rewritng laws passed by Congress is illegal -- only if the law is enforced. It certainly fits into the “High Crimes and Misdemeanors” behavior that is supposed to trigger impeachment proceedings. Congress does not seem to mind watching our president do their job for them. So, why are our elected federal officials ignoring this and refusing to do their jobs? Is there clearly some kind of clandestine organized criminal activity behind this. Remember when Clinton was president and he would have his goon squads digging up criminal activity on uncooperative senators and congressmen? Elected officials were followed. Hidden video cameras were installed in certain favorite motel rooms to blackmail and threaten enough to control behavior. Lobbyist monies were withheld, and so were promotions and opportunities within the chain of command. As they say, “You have to go along to get along.” The intimidation has grown far more sophisticated today, and a great many of our legislators have become not unlike a bunch of whipped dogs. The only way to fix this mess is to throw the entire bunch out at election time. There is no lesser of the evils. They are pretty much all evil. I believe that our civilization has degenerated to the point that there is just about no fight left in our population. Too many of us have turned into mindless selfish souls that crave only instant gratification. We have become the Romans. Robert Mackay Mechanicsville

Woman’s right to equal treatment This is in response to W.S. Wright’s letter in the June 20 edition of The Local. In our system of government the rights of the individual always trump the rights of churches and other religious

organizations. A woman’s right to equal treatment in healthcare supersedes the right of her employer to impose its religious beliefs/creed on its employees. The same would be true if the church wanted to cut out paying for men’s vasectomies. And isn’t it funny how the Catholic Church always complains about being forced to pay for women’s birth control, but you never hear them complain about paying for permanent birth control for men? Even though the majority of insurance coverage provided by Catholic organizations to its general employees will pay for some or all costs of a vasectomy? There are plenty of cases where the law imposes limits on or requires behavior of churches, dating back to the days immediately following the Revolution; the most wellknown example is the prohibition against politicking from the pulpit, but there are plenty of others. More specifically to the issue in question, several laws (both state and federal) include clauses that exempt churches from following or adhering to them *only* for those employees specifically in ministerial positions. The rational basis for those laws is simple: If you’re going to serve all the public, not just those that are tightly joined to your belief-based organization, you cannot discriminate. It doesn’t matter that the same organization operates in both spheres; the part that serves everyone must treat everyone the same and not impose its beliefs on those -- including employees -- that may not share them. In this country, that’s the price a religious organization pays for pushing itself into the public sphere rather than restricting itself to its religious purposes, and that price has been upheld by the courts many times. So the answer to Cardinal Dolan’s silly question is: over 200 years ago. You’re correct about one thing, though: this is about control. But not government control. It’s about a single church trying to control the personal lives of its employees to a degree never before allowed, and to impose its will on see LETTERS, pg. 7

everyone, not just its believers. And it’s about liberty, but not just the religious liberty of the Catholic Church – it’s about my religious liberty to not have your religion forced on me. That’s true not only for atheists like me and other nonChristians, it’s true for the multitude of other Christian sect members that don’t share the Catholic Church’s rabid beliefs in this area, and it’s true for the multitude of Catholics that don’t agree with their own church on this issue. Together, all of those people form a substantial majority over the Catholic bishops and their fawns, and the Obama administration is correct in standing up for all those people’s rights. That’s true liberty, Mr. Wright. Not the false kind in which you attempt to wrap your theocratic nonsense. Steve Sneed Mechanicsville

DEAL OF THE WEEK

Mitt Romney for designing the system in the first place and to President Obama for persevering to get the Act passed. Judy Thomas Mechanicsville

Supreme Court: ObamaCare tax Finally the U.S. Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision upheld ObamaCare as a tax. President Obama, Democrats, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and all the Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives said that ObamaCare is not a tax. The Supreme Court with the final decision said it is a tax and not a mandate to buy health insurance. All the Democrats have lied to the American people. Good thing that this is election year. We the people, who were lied to by all the Democrats, will have the final say on Nov 6, 2012, and vote these liars out of office.

1023E SUB-COMPACT UTILITY TRACTOR

Vote no for Obama and no for Senate candidate and former DNC chairman Tim Kaine. Tim is very happy with the Supreme Court’s decision. Tim, as our former governor, wanted to tax Virginians every chance he got, but couldn’t. We need to keep Tim Kaine out of the Senate and we need to vote for people that will repeal the largest tax increase in U.S. history (ObamaCare). Obama said it will not cost low to middle class Americans, “not a single dime.� Well, that’s true -- it won’t cost us a single dime; it will cost us about $2.5 trillion. Everybody’s tax will go up. The Democratic Party did a great job in pulling the wool over our eyes. Nov. 6, 2012, let us take back our country from the liars in D.C. Vote for candidates that will repeal this huge tax known as ObamaCare. Vote for Mitt Romney, George Allen and Eric Cantor. Tom Chorinos Mechanicsville

The political firestorm over Operation Fast and Furious has been absorbing all of the news mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. Who knew what, and when did they know it? Many in the Patriot Movement hold fast to the belief that this was a politically-driven operation meant to serve as justification to seize law-abiding citizens guns, or pass new more restrictive legislation bent on making the purchase of guns more difficult. With the passage of enough time we just might learn this to be true. Nefarious motives drive zealots and this president;s disdain for individual liberties has been demonstrated time and again. While it flies in the face of the evidence that tighter gun control laws makes us safer, the

truth never is permitted to get in the way of political goals. I have little regard for President Obama’s leadership. I am convinced he is the Socialist that many portrayed him as in 2008 as he sought the presidency. His actions demonstrate the con-

tempt he has for a market-based capitalist economic model. His pursuit to turn more control of our daily lives over to a paternalistic federal government is relentless. Is there anyone who doubts his collectivist mentality? With an election looming, the economy slipping back into contraction, unemployment remaining staggeringly high,

President Obama’s campaign gurus cling to the hope that the American public will be distracted by something, anything, so as to take our eyes “off the ball.” Voters always vote their “pocketbooks” first. Every survey shows Americans are growing increasingly wary as to this president’s ability to run our country. His grade on the eco-

nomic issues is terrible, and he knows it. Let’s keep our focus where it should be, on his very sorry record for the three and a half years as president. Do not allow yourselves to be distracted by the carefully orchestrated and choreographed sideshow. Bob Shannon King William

She was remembered for her wit at Parksley High School, where she graduated in 1958, going on to Stuart Circle Hospital in Richmond, Va., earning an R.N. degree in 1961.

Drive seeks donations for needy kids Community Services, HCPS partner for ‘Ready, Set, School!’ program The school year may have just ended, but plans are already in motion to ensure that all students are prepared to go back to class next fall. The Hanover County Department of Community Resources and Hanover County Public Schools have teamed up to launch Ready, Set, School!, the county-wide school supply drive that benefits children in need attending our local public elementary, middle and high schools. To help collect donations, school buses will be parked outside of the Walmart Supercenter at 145 Hill Carter Parkway in Ashland and the Rutland Kroger at 9351 Atlee Road in Mechanicsville from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 4. It’s easy to remember that date because it’s the Saturday of the annual Sales Tax Holiday. Faith-based organizations, community groups and individuals that perform their own collections to support school children are encouraged to drop off their donations at one

of the collection locations on Aug. 4. Supplies will then be driven to a central location, sorted by volunteers and distributed to the schools based on need. “We have streamlined the collection and distribution system this year to make it more manageable,” Laura Robertson, youth services specialist, at the Hanover County Department of Community Resources, said. “In previous years, citizens were

encouraged to drop off donations at government locations or directly to the schools. By designating two dropoff points at easily accessible locations we are making it more convenient for citizens to contribute. Also, by further streamlining distribution we are ensuring that more students in need are receiving supplies.” Parents and students in need of school supplies are asked to contact their school counselor

for assistance. The list of school supplies that are most needed can be read at http://www.co.hanover. va.us/commres/programs_ HPromise.htm For more information about Ready, Set, School, contact Robertson at larobertson@ hanovercounty.gov or 804-3654180.

Preparation:

So my pie is a bit thinner. I did a mixture of several cheeses I had on hand. I used three cheeses (mozzarella, Parmesan and Romano) and I normally buy all my cheese in block and grate it myself as it is cheaper and to me it tastes better and fresher that the pre-grated stuff. I did add an extra 1/3 cup of cheese as stated in the recipe and about another tablespoon of mayonnaise as needed make sure there was enough topping. It’s great left over for the next day and can be frozen. Enjoy!

You can make your own pie shell or use a store brought one like I did. Bake the shell at 450° for 5 minutes. Fill the baked pie shell with sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and fresh chopped basil. In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and minced fresh garlic and mix well. Spread over the layer of tomatoes. Bake at 350° for 35 to 45 minutes or About the cook: until tomatoes are cooked and pie is done.

Her family made butter from the milk from the family cow, Flossie, and raised their own vegetables. Homemade was the word in their kitchen. This sparked her love of family cooking. Her cooking experience started at her grandmother Rusie’s apron strings. While she said she loves making her family “heirloom” recipes, she enjoys most baking hot rolls, cakes and pies.

We are here to help programs provide higher quality care and early learning experiences for children and to help parents identify quality care. Choosing a child care program is one of the most important decisions parents can make because children who participate in high quality child care settings are more successful later in school and life,” Lisa Thompson, VSQI program specialist, said. VSQI is a statewide program managed locally by

ChildSavers in partnership with United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg and Smart Beginnings. This quality rating and improvement system for child care was designed by the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation and Virginia’s Office of Early Development.

The goal is to heighten crime-prevention awareness,

build support and participation in local anti-crime programs, and, most importantly, send a message that our neighborhoods are organized and fighting back. “It’s also the perfect opportunity to get to know your neighbors even better,” Whitley added.

Three child care providers in Hanover recently were recognized with star ratings by the Virginia Star Quality Initiative (VSQI). Finding and accessing high quality child care can be a challenge, so VSQI was created to help. Just like restaurants or hotels, each participating child care program is given a star rating from one to five stars. But unlike a restaurant rating, one star reflects a program’s choice to go further than regular licensing standards and raise the bar in commitment to quality beyond expectation or requirement. The rating is only the first step of the VSQI process. Programs that participate in this completely voluntary program are given tools to improve their quality through mentoring and other assistance. VSQI is much more than a rating: It recognizes provider achievements and improve-

The Hanover County Department of Social Services is accepting applications for the Cooling Assistance program, which runs through Aug. 15 or until the money has been spent. Cooling Assistance, offered through the Virginia Department of Social Services Energy Assistance Program, helps eligible households meet costs related to cooling one’s home. This can include: ✓ Payment of electric bills (up to a determined maximum) to operate cooling equipment. ✓ Payment of security deposits for electricity to operate cooling equipment. ✓ Repair of a central air conditioning system or heat pump. ✓ Purchase of a whole-house fan, including ceiling or attic fans. ✓ The purchase and installation of one window unit air conditioner for households where there is no unit or where the unit needs to be replaced. To be eligible, the household must have at least one vulnerable individual aged 60 or older, disabled or a child under age 6. Assistance is based on the availability of funds and is first-come, first-serve. Renters must have written permission from their landlord to make alterations or improvements to the property in order to be eligible. “It’s probably going to be hot and humid this summer and this weather can be very dangerous to elderly and disabled people as well as children,” said Sheila Crossen-Powell, director of Hanover County Social Services. “We urge anyone who would like to know more about the cooling assistance program to call us at 365-4100.” An eligible household can receive more than one type of assistance per application and may apply more than once during the cooling season,

ALL-METRO PLAYER OF THE YEAR

Atlee’s Ashley Riefner made year of honors tribute to fallen friend By Billy Fellin Richmond Times Dispatch At the start of the girls soccer season, Ashley Riefner offered her own additions to the Atlee Raiders’ blueand-white color scheme. Sporting a teal headband and joined by teammate and fellow first-team All-Metro choice Sam Armentrout in wearing teal shoelaces, Riefner also changed her number from 2 to 7, all as gestures to honor a fallen

Dedicated effort friend, Avery Spence of Manchester. Riefner knew she wanted to make her senior season special for more than just her and her fellow Raiders and chose to sport Spence’s favorite color and number. Spence passed away in a car accident last spring, and Riefner said the two were “close” from playing soccer since middle school together. “I played this season in honor of her,” she said. “I wanted to win the state championship for my team, but I wanted to win awards in honor of her. I talked

to her family before and told them about how I was going to do it for Avery.” While the state championship eluded the Raiders, who lost to eventual state champion Cosby in the Central Region semifinals, the awards came in droves for Riefner. She scored 21 goals and had 12 assists en route to being named Capital District, Central Region, VHSL Group AAA and AllMetro player of the year. “I was so excited,” she said

about being named region player of the year. “My goal for the season was to get regional player of the year.” Being named state player of the year was a surprise. “It was awesome,” she said. “I didn’t expect it at all. It would have been cool if I had got it, but I didn’t expect it. It was an awesome surprise and I almost cried. It’s good to see how my hard work has paid off over the years.” Riefner will play soccer at the University of Richmond and said that her four years as a Raider will be helpful when

competing for the Spiders. “High school was great because it gave me the confidence to use my dribbling skills,” she said. “In college, I definitely can’t use (dribbling) as much because you get the ball taken away. In college, I’m looking forward to hopefully making an impact my freshman year.” Looking back on her four years at Atlee, Riefner said she’s happy with what she’s accomplished. “I wanted to be the player that when we were down 1-0 with two minutes to go, I could win the game for the team,” she said. “It’s nice leaving Atlee knowing that people like myself and Sam (Armentrout) have really affected how Atlee is perceived. I thought it was a great way t o end t h e years.” The player-of-the- year sweep would qualify as a “great way” to end a high school career. However, for Riefner, those awards carried a larger meaning than plaques on her wall. “It was great when (winning the awards) happened because it was all for (Avery),” she said.

Mechanicsville shuts out Atlee for District V crown Defense dominates as offense heats up By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Mechanicsville 11-12 softball team did their part to beat the heat last week during the District V tournament at Bailey Bridge Middle School. They limited the time spent on the field under the blistering temperatures by rolling through every game by the 10-run rule. Mechanicsville then capped off the week with an 11-0 victory over Atlee for the championship. It was the fourth consecutive District V championship for the group of young women from Mechanicsville. As 10-years old they won the state title and last year they finished third in the state. This year their sights are set on going much further. “They want to win the states, go to Georgia (Southeast Regional) and see what hap-

pens,” said Mechanicsville manager Johnny Sheffield. If their latest run is any indication, they could do just that. Mechanicville’s offense notched 47 runs in three games, but it was the defense that took center stage, giving up only a single run in the tournament. Pitcher Jesse Gentry was virtually unhittable throughout the week. Gentry opened the tournament with a perfect game, 15-0 shutout of Huguenot. She then helped Mechanicsville take a 16-1 win over Atlee in the first meeting between the two teams. In the championship rematch, Gentry turned in another stellar performance, with five strikeouts versus one walk in two innings of work. “We try to work on (Gentry) hitting her spots and getting ready for the next game and things like that,” Sheffield said. “She came out, hit her spots. She may have had one walk, but other than that did phe-

nomenal.” The walk did not occur without a fight. After striking out the first two Atlee batters she face, Gentry got Haley Turner in a 3-2 count but the

Atlee batter refused to go down. Turner repeatedly fouled away potential strikeout pitches until Gentry finally gave up a pitch outside the box. In the third inning, Elizabeth

Mechanicsville’s pitching dominated the District V 11-12 softball championships, giving up only one run on their way to the tournament title. Facing Atlee in the championship game, Jesse Gentry, left, had five strikeouts in two innings of work. Elizabeth Hudson, above, came on in relief and also held Atlee without a hit.

Hudson came on in relief and also held Atlee without a hit. “We’re deep in pitching,” Sheffield said. “We didn’t have to use a whole lot in districts but we have others who should be ready.”

As strong as the Mechanicsville pitching is, the defense backing them up is even better. “Whether our pitchers are on or not, we have a very good defensive team,” Sheffield see SOFTBALL, pg. 31 `

Mechanicsville falls in 9-10 softball championship Huguenot rolls through tournament to take title By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Playing in 100-plus degree temperatures last week, the Huguenot 9-10 softball team displayed a little heat of their own in the District V tournament played at Bailey Bridge Middle School. Huguenot notched double-digit hits in every game, winning each outing by the 10-run rule then Charlie Leffler/The Local

taking the championship with a 14-1, four-inning-win over Mechanicsville. “This is one hitting team,” said Huguenot manager Mark Davis. “There isn’t a weak spot in the lineup. We had 16 hits the first game (Chesterfield), 17 against Tuckahoe, 16 hits against Atlee, and I think we had 15 or 16 tonight.” But it was not only the hitting that contributed to the victories. Early on, Davis had his team change their defensive focus and he felt it paid dividends as they went on. “At the beginning of the season we were trying to make the plays at second base-, get the lead runner,” he said. “We took two practices and said ‘We’re done with that. We’re getting the easy out’ and that’s what

they’ve done all the time… I’d rather have an out. We’ll give up a run, I don’t care.” While Huguenot cruised into the championship contest Mechanicsville took the hard road, battling their way through the loser’s bracket after falling to Atlee in their opening game. “Tough bracket,” said Mechanicsville manager Vince Valdrighi. “We sent three teams home and if we could have played a little bit better, a little bit more energized, we would have been them (Huguenot) tonight.” In a win or go home situation, Mechanicsville sent Chesterfield (15-5) and Tuckahoe (17-9) packing then got a chance for redemption see HUGUENIOT, pg. 31 `

said. “All these girls play together a lot. Most of them have been together for four years.” Atlee reached the championship by beating Tuckahoe 114 in their opener before falling to Mechanicsville in the second round. In the loser’s bracket, Atlee beat Huguenot 10-7 to earn a rematch with Mechanicsville, but Manager Sean Iseminger felt his team had a huge mountain to climb against the talented opponent. “They’re a good team,” he said. “They’re a really good team. It’s tough to say that there Charlie Leffler/The Local

against Atlee. In what was arguably one of the best games of the tournament, Mechanicsville’s Kayla Brown came up with the gamewinning hit in the bottom of the seventh to defeat Atlee 8-7. “Seems like we had a lot of fans support on that one,” Valdrighi said. “Atlee’s a scrappy team. I commend them.” But facing Huguenot’s potent bats, Mechanicsville was at an added disadvantage, having used their ace pitcher Tatam Valdrighi the night before. “We had our other little pitcher, that has just been light’s out the whole tournament,” Vince Valdrighi said. “We couldn’t use her tonight and I think that just gets in everybody’s head. It was in their head from the get-go.” Regardless, Jaden Browning turned in an exemplary effort in the circle, taking down the Huguenot order in the bottom of the first. However, Valdrighi felt playing in extreme heat combined

with traveling across town for five games may have taken its toll. “My pitcher did great so it wasn’t anybody’s fault,” he said. “Forty-five minutes away, the girls are tired and they’ve been out here every single night in 100 degree weather and I’m proud of them.” Mechanicsville got runners to third in the first two innings but could not push them across. In the top of the first, Jewel Wagner was walked, stole second then third. When Huguenot pitcher Lucy DiLoreto put a ball in the dirt, Wagner tried to score but was tagged at the plate by DiLoreto. With one out in the second, Autumn Call was walked and replaced by pinch runner Kayla Brown. Addison Walter’s groundout to first pushed Brown to third but once again Mechanicsville could not get the runner home. That opened the door for Huguenot’s bats to go to work in the bottom of the second. DiLoreto (3-for 3, 2 2B, 3B, 3 runs) led things off by reaching

third on a shot to right. Next up, Emily Morrison tagged a three-bagger to center and DiLoreto scored easily. Then Morrison made the lead 2-0 on a RBI groundout from Marian Woodington. Kendall Hicks was walked and Kenley Gregory’s shot to short put two Huguenot runners on. They both came home on Lauren Lingle’s two RBI double to right. In the bottom of the third, it appeared Huguenot caught fire just as the long tournament was taking its toll on Mechanicsville. DiLoreto once again led off, this time with a triple to right. She then came home on Morrision’s single up the middle. Morrision pushed the lead to 6-0 on Woodington’s RBI single to center. With bases loaded, Lingle’s fly ball to center drove in Isabel Dingus and Hicks. Next up, Kaylee Grizzard tagged a triple to left that drove in Gregory and Lingle for a 10-0 lead. Grizzard, Emma Davis, DiLoreto and Morrison also scored to push Huguenot’s lead to 14-0.

was anything that we could have done different.” Atlee pitcher Savahanna Thorne got two quick outs in the bottom of the first before the Mechanicsville bats came alive. Mechanicsville’s Sydney Glass was hit by a pitch, stole second then came home on a double to center by Gentry. Next up, Heather Childress drove in Gentry and rounded the bases herself on a hard shot past third for a 3-0 lead. Kelly Warren reached on a bunt, advanced to third on a single up the middle by Ella Alvis then scored on a wild pitch to push the lead to 4-0. Despite facing the early deficit, Atlee kept battling. “They’ve never given up,” Iseminger said. “No matter what game we’re in they’ve always played tough. They’ve

always played to the end. That made a big difference in getting back here.” But after Gentry struck out the side in the top of the second, Mechanicsville went back to work. With one out, Jordan Durbin tripled to center then came home on a wild pitch for a 5-0 lead. Mechanicsville broke the game open in the bottom of the third. “We work on hitting a lot,” Sheffield said. “We can play small ball if we need to. We have three or four that will fly, but we work on hitting a lot and they’re getting older and bigger and they like seeing the ball go into the outfield and I can’t blame them. We really put the bat on the ball a lot, try not to strike out. We want to put it in play and make them make

the play.” Warren got things going by reaching third on her shot down the left field line. She then scored on a popup from Alvis. With Hudson, Peyton Slater and Caroline Grubbs loading the bases, Durbin singled to center allowing two more runs to score. Durbin and Guess pushed the lead to 10-0 on Gentry’s triple to right center. Gentry scored the final run off single from Mckenna McAlbrech.

As hot as the Huguenot bats appeared to be, Davis feels his team has not yet played their best. “I can tell you there are some players on this team that aren’t hitting that should be hitting,” he said. “They haven’t even hit their stride yet. The middle of the lineup is jacking the ball. We struggled at the top

a little bit but typically the top of the lineup jacks the ball too.” Mechanicsville broke through on the scoreboard in the top of the fourth. Gracie Murry led off with a single to left center, stole second then came home on Walter’s RBI groundout to second. Huguenot advances to this

Post 175 two games away from perfection By Michael Schoeffel Richmond Suburban Newspapers

Through the first two innings of Sunday afternoon’s American Legion baseball game at Atlee High School, it looked as though Powhatan Post 201 had a very real shot at knocking off undefeated Post 175. But then the third inning happened. -and, after that, the fourth inning-and three innings later the game was called due to slaughter rule, with Powhatan on the losing end of a 14-3 final. Powhatan jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the game thanks to a combination of wellexecuted, textbook baseball and one costly defensive mishap by Mechanicsville. After a single by Post 201 shortstop Paul Wood, a perfectly executed sacrifice bunt by Coleman Paz, and a single by Michael Trentham, Powhatan had runners on the corners with only one out. On the first pitch of the following at-bat, Trentham broke for second, but the throw was unexpectedly cut off by Mechanicsville pitcher Michael Thomas. This left Wood - who had wandered dangerously far from the third base bag - in a highly compromising position as Thomas threw to Conner Hall at third. Wood’s base running error turned out to be a blessing for Post 201, however, as Hall’s throw home sailed over the glove of catcher Bryant Lowry and lodged in the backstop. Wood scored and Trentham was awarded home for Post 201’s first two runs of the contest. Mechanicsville coach Eddie Gates was upset more than concerned over the slow start. “Two runs are not going to beat us,” he said. “It’s just a little frustrating that we lost a little bit of our focus before the game even

started.” The 103 temperatures may have contributed to the uncharacteristic start for Mechanicsville. “It was really hot so we started off with a lack of energy,” said Post 175 right fielder Chop Pulisic. “Once we saw that we were losing…We picked it up and turned it on when we had to.” “We got a little motivated because we didn’t want to lose,” said first baseman Ryan Bettinger. Powhatan pitcher Kyle Jones added another run in the top of the second. Jones tagged a one-out double to the left field fence then came home on Wood’s RBI single up the middle giving Post 201 a surprising 3-0 lead. But Powhatan’s streak of good fortune would end there. The momentum shifted into the Post 175 dugout in the bottom of the second. Brent West reached on a one-out double to the right field fence then came home on a sacrifice to left by

Chad Woodell. Mechanicsville then took control in the bottom of the third. A fielding error at the onset of the half-inning proved to be an omen of darker things to come for Powhatan. Over the next twenty minutes, Mechanicsville sent 10 batters to the plate. Seven would reach base, six went on to score. Thomas and shortstop Brent West drove in two runs a piece, on a double and a single, respectively. Post 201 aided Post 175’s offensive explosion by committing three errors. Zach Broaddus led things off by beating out a grounder to short then Pulisic was walked on four pitches. Both runners advanced on a dribbling groundout to the mound by Bryan Johansen. Next up Thomas blistered a line drive up the middle plating Broaddus and Pulisic to tie the game. Thomas came home on a RBI single to left by Hall and West’s shot past third drove in

Lowry and Hall for a 6-3 lead. Facing Powhatan reliever Nicky Maieln, Post 175 batted around once more in the bottom of the fourth, tacking on an additional four runs and stretching their lead to 12-3. This time around, it was Woodell who carried the run-producing torch, knocking in two runs with a line-drive single to left. West drove home a run for the second consecutive inning as he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. On the hill, 175’s Thomas was able to recover from a fairly rocky beginning to turn in a borderline dominant performance. Over the first two innings, he allowed three runs on six hits. From that point on he seemed to settle into a groove and showed decent command of his fastball and utilized a hard-breaking curve to keep Post 201’s hitters offbalance. Thomas ended the day with eight strikeouts over six innings of work. Allen Ellis came in for mop-

up duty in the top of the 7th. With thunder booming in the distance, Mechanicsville looked to end the game via the slaughter rule. “We know this storm’s rolling in so we wanted to finish it quickly,” Pulisic said. But speeding up the play nearly cost them as Ellis hit two of the first three batters he faced. “When you hear the thunder like that and you know the past, what has happened here as far as storms coming, I guess we kind of probably did a little rush job on trying to get things done,” Gates said. But the team found a quick escape when Andrew Corbits hit a grounder to short. West fielded the ball, threw to Woodell at second then Thomas at first for a double-play to end the game. The victory improved Post 175’s record to 16-0 heading into the final week with the possibility of becoming the first American Legion team to finish the regular season undefeated. “I don’t believe it’s happened in the league that anybody’s gone undefeated,” Gates said. “I don’t think anybody’s gone

undefeated this long in the league.” For the players from Atlee, Lee-Davis and Hanover, it is a chance to do something none of them have ever done in baseball. “I’ve played on some really good teams but this might be the best I’ve ever played on,” Pulisic said. “Combining these three schools into one just makes one really good team.” Woodell agreed. “I’ve never been on a team like this before in my whole life,” he said. On the game, Mechanicsville recorded 11 hits, four walks, and 14 runs over six innings, without a single strikeout. “We play to have fun and just happen to beat teams as bad as we do,” Bettinger said. Thomas, West, and Woodell, all of whom drove in three runs a piece for Mechanicsville. Wood went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base for Post 201.

Goleski grand, Dragum perfect in championship Atlee counters Mother Nature’s fireworks with some of their own By David Halstead For The Mechanicsville Local The Atlee All-Stars dodged a cosmic display from Mother Nature Sunday night and then put on quite a show of their own, defeating Tuckahoe American 11-0 to win the Little League District V Championship at Central Chesterfield Little League Park. After being pushed back six hours from its originally scheduled time due to heat, the game was delayed twice for lightning. Atlee and Tuckahoe American finally got underway 90 minutes later than scheduled. Once they got started, Atlee made sure to end things quickly with ominous clouds still see ATLEE, pg. 34 `

Mechanicsville downs Huguenot for Seniors’ title By David Halstead For The Mechanicsville Local The Mechanicsville Seniors Little League team was not even sure if they would be able to field a team at the beginning of the season. Last Tuesday night at the Chesterfield Little League Park, Mechanicsville knocked off Huguenot 11-1 in the Senior League Virginia District V Championship game. Now they are headed to the state tournament. It was the end of journey that didn’t even seem possible two months ago. In the 15-16 year old Little League division, it’s sometimes difficult to field a full squad with many high school players competing in other summer league travel teams. Thanks

to head coach Matt Hileman and son Austin, they were able to find 14 players, which was enough to at least be able to compete. “We weren’t even sure if we were going to have a Senior team this year. We had to scrounge around and get kids from Ashland, Atlee, and Mechanicsville,” Coach Hileman said. “We started the season with 14 players and finished with 12 kids. Some of these teams have 40 or 50 to kids to choose from and we had 12.” Mechanicsville’s squad got even smaller on the afternoon of the championship game when starting catcher Brett Whitlow was involved in a car accident and wasn’t able

to attend the game. Whitlow, who was not seriously injured, got a call from Hileman shortly after Mechanicsville hoisted the championship banner. “The kids said before the game that they wanted to win it for Brett and they did just that,” Hileman said. The season started out for the Mechanicsville Seniors with a 5-4 loss to the Huguenot Red Sox. That was the last time that Hileman’s team would lose. Huguenot, which fielded three squads this year, put together one roster to challenge www.mechlocal.com Mechanicsville. See slideshow online! After that loss, Mechanicsville strung together David Halstead/For The Local 17 straight wins en route to Mechanicsville coach Matt Hileman, center, talks to his Seniors team between innings in the the District V Championship.

threatening in the distance. Atlee used a perfect game no-hitter from starting pitcher Jack Dragum to spearhead the effort on a night in which everything seemed to be clicking at the right time. “The catchers were doing well giving signs and keeping it low,” Dragum said. “I was just hitting my spots.” Dragum had 11 strikeouts from the mound and also got things going from the batter’s box in the bottom of the first. He took a pitch from Tuckahoe pitcher Jasper Darion deep over the outfield wall for a two-run homerun that sparked a wave of fireworks for Atlee. Still in the first with the bases jammed, Atlee’s Nick Zona reached home on a wild pitch to make it 3-0. After a walked batter, Jack Goleski stepped up to the plate and belted a shot well over the

right-field fence for a grand slam to give Atlee a 7-0 lead. “Jack Goleski just crushed the ball all tournament,” Atlee head coach Rodney Chenault said. “He has been solid and played great at first base for us.” Darion’s and Tuckahoe American’s problems continued as Atlee stayed hot at the plate. Two batters later, Carson Miller’s two-run homerun to centerfield gave Atlee a 9-0 lead through one inning of play. “They stayed focused and came right back out once we had the delay,” Chenault said. “They put up nine runs in the first inning and that was huge.” Tuckahoe head coach Rob Grimes had seen enough and replaced his ace with Levenson Sumner. Sumner didn’t have much better luck. Atlee picked up where they left off in the second inning when Scott McDonough scored on an RBI from Jack Chenault.

Then in the third, Zona’s sacrifice fly to right-field scored Mason Cox to give Atlee a 11-0 lead. Dragum struck out the final three batters that he faced to give Atlee the championship. “Jack Dragum has done that every time out there,” Chenault said. “I kid around and call him the mailman because he always delivers.” Atlee will play in the state tournament in Portsmouth, Va. starting on July 20. The winner of the 16-team tournament will be sent to the Southeast Regional in Warner Robins, Georgia. The final destination is the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa which is broadcast live on ESPN. “We know this is just the first step to our ultimate goal of making it to the World Series,” Chenault said. “We have to get the state tournament done first Kenny Moore/For The Local obviously in order to get to Atlee’s Jack Goleski gets all of a fastball and smacks it over the fence for a grand slam home run regionals.” that put his team up 7-0 in the bottom of the 1st inning. Atlee went on to win 11-0.

Huguenot reached Tuesday’s Championship game by knocking off Central Chesterfield in the semifinal. Austin Hileman started from the mound for Mechanicsville and was brilliant, going six innings with three strikeouts and one earned run. Hileman was also one-for-three hitting with 2 RBI. “He came out and did everything I asked for him,” Matt Hileman said of his son. “To throw strikes and keep them off-balanced. That’s exactly what he did.” Bai Stanfield started from the mound for Huguenot. He soon ran into trouble as Mechanicsville’s Chris Lee scored the game’s first run on a sacrifice fly in the first. Hileman’s sac fly in the second scored Matthew Alfonso and Huguenot head coach James Tavenner had seen enough.

David Halstead/For The Local

Mechanicsville’s Matthew Alfonso (17) beats the throw at home in the bottom of the second inning to give Mechanicsville a 2-0 lead.

“Tonight was tough,” Tavenner said. Our pitchers weren’t throwing strikes and we put a lot of kids on base.” Tavenner replaced Stanfield with Alex Fowler, who didn’t have much more luck. Fowler allowed three runs on bases loaded walks and suddenly Mechanicsville had a 5-0 lead

through two innings of play. Mechanicsville’s Hileman then controlled the pace of the game, pitching a gem and keeping the momentum on his side. “Pretty much everything was working for me tonight,” Hileman said. Mechanicsville added a run in the fifth before Huguenot

“We have had a young team this year and we are mostly 15 year-old kids playing a 15-16 year-old team,” Tavenner said of Huguenot. “So, I’m really excited for next year and many of the kids can come back and learn from this and maybe try and advance a little further.” OnThursday,Mechanicsville will travel Pound, Va for the state tournament. There are 16 districts in Virginia, but not all of them were able to field teams in the Seniors’ division. “This is the first time we have been able to pull a team from my age group to states and I’ve been coaching for nine or ten years,” Hileman said. “So, it’s a great feeling; a fantastic feeling.” The winner of the state tournament will advance to the Southeast Regional Tournament to be held in Florida later in July.

finally came through with a score in the sixth. Craig Douglas’ blooper scored Austin Peirpont on a fielder’s choice to cut the lead to 6-1. Mechanicsville didn’t leave anything to chance and pushed five runs across in the bottom of the sixth inning to end the game Senior Division Championship Huguenot............... 000 001 — 1 2 early on the 10-run rule.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Take inventory of your life this week, Taurus, and make the necessary tweaks to align you with your primary goals. Take a cue from someone organized. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you’re inspired to do something creative. Narrow down the possibilities. Maybe you want to paint indoors or take on a new craft hobby. Either way you’ll find success.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Even the most organized people can get tripped up once in a while, Cancer. This week you may be unable to keep track of things. Keep your cool, and you will get it under control. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Take control of a situation that arises, Leo, because right now it seems no one else is capable of handling the situation. You may prove to be an excellent leader. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Influential people will be moving in your social circles, Virgo. Failure to introduce yourself and network could lead to setbacks in your employment goals.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Once the excitement of an event wears off, Libra, you may be left floundering for a little while. Don’t wallow in boredom. Get started on a new project.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Now may be the time to get serious about your efforts to find a new job, Capricorn. Start doing the legwork and get your name out to new people as much as you can.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Sometimes much more can be said by remaining quiet that actually speaking, Scorpio. Keep this in mind when you are socializing with new people.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Although you’re a do-it-yourself person by nature, Aquarius, sometimes letting someone get the job done frees you up for more important projects. You also get a needed break.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 It can sometimes feel lonely at the top, Sagittarius. Now that you’ve acquired many of the things you wanted, the resulting feelings may not be what you thought.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, you can’t seem to keep your mind on the thing at hand. Your wandering thoughts may put you in tune with a better idea.

THIS WEEK’S ANSWERS

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, the week may begin a little off-kilter, but you’ll find that by Wednesday or Thursday, things turn around significantly. A couple of opportunities for socialization arise.
