Cadet shares Naval training experience (Editor’s note: Cadet Ryan Pellegrino, who participated in a Basic Airman training program at Naval Station Norfolk, submitted the following about his experience.) One of my two summer trainings was a 13-day Basic Airman training, held at Naval Station Norfolk, Va. There I learned what it means to be an Airman and what their job is in the Navy. We learned about aerodynamics, fixed and rotary winged aircraft, jet engines and teamwork. Most of the day I would get hands-on training with the men and women of HM14. This squadron is one of two airborne mine countermeasure squadrons in the Navy. HM-14 uses the powerful MH-53 Sea Dragon helicopter for mine countermeasure and transport of personnel and equipment.

buy teacher editions. I believe when you’re a teacher, you’re a teacher.” Her career choice came at a young age. She said she was a mere 7 when a plan was put in place to pursue teaching. Even as she started preparing for college, Erin set her sights on education “because I knew that’s what I was going to do from the beginning.” She received her bachelor’s degree in English and a master of Teaching Elementary Education from the University of Virginia. She was fresh out of college when she accepted the position at Henry Clay “and I’ve been at Henry Clay ever since I started teaching.” She said she considers “this to be a very good fit.” And what attracted her to Hanover County? The job opportunity, she said, as well as

Jack Anderson, who was then with the school district’s human resources department. “He was amazing. I interviewed with him and I knew that was where I needed to be.” Erin said Anderson “kind of embodies Hanover and he knew you personally.” She said he did “an excellent job of putting me in a school that’s a good match for me.” “I just really enjoy it,” she said of teaching. “I look forward to coming to work every day. I love seeing the kids make progress and have those moments where it all clicks.” Working with second graders brings a special joy to Erin, especially when reading is involved. “You’re still learning how to read [in the second grade]. I enjoy that kids enjoy reading when they leave me. They will love reading and they

will love learning and they will continue that.” In 2008, Erin received an R.E.B. Award for Teaching Excellence, which allowed her to participate in professional development conferences in Texas and Australia. The award, according to The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia, serves “to identify, recognize and promote excellence in classroom teaching in area public schools.” The Australian experience, which was nearly two weeks, offered Erin the opportunity “to learn more about the brain and how the brain learns and kind of tying that into differentiation and learning levels so they are all challenged.” When she returned from Australia, Erin said she wanted “to change the way that I do things. I got to see some of

schools’ effectiveness. Indeed, Hanover’s performance within the state and region and among Virginia’s largest school districts is practically second to none on these key measures. Moving forward, our community’s continued investments in the safety nets necessary to help every child stay in school and succeed will be central to our students’, teachers’, and school leaders’ collective ability to add even more to this already strong record as we all seek to build upon it further.” “I know that our entire county joins the School Board and me in expressing our heartfelt appreciation to all of the dedicated individuals who are behind this latest news of Hanover’s very impressive success story,” he added. According to the Virginia Department of Education, more than 85 percent of students in last year’s class graduated on time with a diploma.

no significant glitches, which brought “a sigh of relief from everyone involved.” “I wouldn’t say I was nervous – we had done an awful lot of testing – but I didn’t know what to expect from the 911 cutover,” Heins said. “We had both centers staffed the whole time. It went extremely well – we had only one test call that went into the old center instead. We also picked an excellent night to cut over – it was very slow. By Wednesday afternoon, we were confident enough to close the old center and now everyone is in the new center and everything is going smoothly.” The new Motorola 700/800 megahertz digital communications system accomplishes what Hanover voters endorsed overwhelmingly in the 2005 bond referendum: It allows public safety providers a radio “lifeline” to communications officers and their colleagues virtually everywhere in the county, Harris said. It also provided Hanover law enforcement and Fire/EMS with a much greater ability to communicate with Henrico, Richmond and Chesterfield. Deputies with the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office also tested the system just after 3 a.m. on Aug. 25. Officers went into areas that were “blacked out” before from Communications dispatchers. Locations tested included in the vicinity of Memorial Regional Medical Center and the Walmart stores in Mechanicsville and Ashland. Officers reported they were able to both talk and hear perfectly.

the things that they did in the schools could easily be done here.” The classroom structure, she said, is more individualized there, “so it was great to see how they met the needs of all their learners.” Going to Melbourne, Australia, also provided a special time for newlyweds Erin and Jeremy, who had married in August 2009. They make their home in Mechanicsville. In her spare time, Erin said she enjoys reading. “I read a lot, a whole lot – that’s what people make fun of me for at work.” She also scrapbooks and likes to cook. “I try to be involved with church (Shady Grove United Methodist Church) as much as I can.” A background in Girl Scouts paved the way for Erin’s desire to work with young children. “It’s just great to teach.”

“All interoperability tests with our regional neighbors have also been passed,” Heins said. “When the Capital Region localities upgrade their systems, Hanover should be able to maintain interoperability with relatively minor modifications to the new system.” Hanover’s new Positron Viper 911 system also makes it able to adapt to the “next generation” of technology, which will allow dispatchers to receive text messages and photographs or video through the 911 system. “We will be ready for those types of calls and technologies when the infrastructure and specifications are developed,” Heins said. By using the latest wireless 911 technologies, Hanover communications officers can determine the approximate location of wireless 911 callers. “Mapping and software technology is in place, which can get us to within 600 meters of where you are calling,” Heins said. The new system includes 15 tower and transmitter sites. Call takers also are working in a new Communications Center, which also was authorized in the 2005 bond referendum. Heins said the process spanned five years. “The planning phase took up most of 2005; 2006 was spent developing the RFP (Requests for Proposal) for the 911 Center and radio system and reviewing proposals for both; 2007 was spent on design. In 2008, we started construction of the call center, tower sites and the ordering of the equipment. In 2009, we were busy with building, installation and testing of the system. In 2010, we have the completion and the cutover. It’s been a very long process and I’m glad that we’re at the end of it.”


Sliding Hill Road improvements complete By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com The completion of a new intersection in the Ashland District “has helped ease the traffic situation,” according to the chair of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors. G. Ed Via III, who represents that district, said the New Ashcake Road and Sliding Hill Road project started in April 2009. With a price tag of $5.4 million, Via said it “came in a million dollars under what the county had projected.” He attributed that to “The economy and the lack of work and these big companies needed to keep their people working in order to stay in business.” According to the Virginia Department of Transportation, the estimated cost was $9.3 million. That figure included preliminary engineering,

right-of-way and construction. Standing alongside the highway, he watched as traffic moved smoothly. “The project scope was to realign the intersection and to provide turning lanes. And the project included a free-flow right-turn lane off Sliding Hill going toward New Ashcake.” Via said that turn lane “drastically improved” the way motorists know who is turning.” That turn lane, he added is “what helped us as VDOT had hoped and projected that right turn lane and realignment of the intersection would be such a great improvement that we would not need a stop light there. So far, that has turned out Ed Via III, Vice Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, stands at the newly improved Sliding Hill Rd. The project first began in to be true. Traffic flow is April of 2009 much better there.” The addition of that turn lane, Via said, has greatly reduced the occurrence of accidents in that area.

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Art Linkletter was right about kids As a newcomer in 2008, one of the most impressive education-related revelations came with the start of the school year: The superintendent and key Hanover County School Board members visit every school on the first day. Not an easy task, but one that has become a tradition here. Tuesday, Sept. 7, continued the ritual, with Dr. Stewart D. Roberson being joined by John F. Axselle III, chair; Ann F. Hagan Gladstone, vice chair; Sue Forbes Watson, member; and Dale Theakston, Hanover County Public Schools communications specialist. They held tight to the schedule and, as always, crossed the county with ease. Catching up with them at Kersey Creek Elementary School meant an opportunity for some photos and a few “hellos” and “nice to meet you” to administration and staff. It was a smooth day there. A week later, the four talked about their experiences that day. While some comments appeared in our Sept. 22 edition, a few merit sharing. Reminiscent of the late Art Linkletter, Roberson offered some musings that certainly fall in the category “Kids Say the Darndest Things.” A kindergarten student at Rural Point Elementary School asked the principal after lunch if she served lunch every day. Before the principal could reply, the youngster said, “If you do serve lunch every day, then I don’t think I’ll be back tomorrow because my parents will miss me.” Another kindergartner, this one at Cold Harbor Elementary School, cried at day’s end — because he said he didn’t want to leave his teacher. Roberson said tears can be expected on the first day, but clinging to the teacher usually isn’t the case.

“Statistics show that when you do have a stop light that you have more accidents than when you have a free-flowing intersection, especially one that’s as well defined as this one is,” he said. “In addition to the realignment, we have those raised concrete medians, which divided the traffic

and we have four-foot bike lane.” With a six-foot paved shoulder, Via said “There’s plenty of room for people to get off the road if they have any problems.” Another bonus, he said, is a precast arch that goes under Sliding Hill Road enabling Totopotomoy Creek to drain. “Then we also have the stub road, which would be an extension into the future expan-

sion of the [Hanover] industrial park.” “The intersection moved about 200 feet to the north, which improved the freeflow of the right turn lane on to Sliding Hill Road,” Via said. While VDOT managed the construction of the job, Via said the Hanover County Department of Public Works designed the project and acquired all the rights-of-way. As he watched traffic move,

he said, “The flow seems to be greatly improved.” Feedback from his constituents has been positive. “Citizens have remarked about how much more efficient the intersection is and how they can get through more readily.”

It does not have the weight of law. It merely says what the Constitution is about. Notice the word Promote not provide was used, as is Promote the general welfare, not Provide. The Constitution is a contract between the several states creating a central government to do what the several states could not do singly. Such as defending the nation as a whole, promoting the well-being (i.e., welfare) of the people, and seeing that the several states worked together. There is nothing in the Preamble that requires the central government to hand out money to anyone, require anyone to buy anything, or to provide anyone health care, Or any-

BRICKS Continued from pg. 7 b

Immanuel Episcopal Church in Old Church invites area residents, former students of The Cherub School and their families to purchase a personalized brick for a new entrance to the historic property and literally leave their mark on history. Personalized bricks will become a permanent part of the “Welcome Wall,” which will be constructed this year around a new perennial garden and sign at the entrance to the church and The Cherub School, a preschool for children ages 2½ to 5. The school was established as a nonprofit ministry of Immanuel Church in 1988 to meet the demand for preschool education in Hanover, New Kent and

Steve Sneed took a mighty swipe at the letter by Gary Allen. I would like to continue that discussion, but will limit my response at this time to his first issue, the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States. The Founders were opposed to a strong central government and that is why they included the Bill of Rights, also referred to as the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution. They wanted a limited government that could not intrude into their everyday lives. As you read the Constitution and these 10 amendments, no

where will you find wording that industry is too large or difficult or that individuals choose not to perform. Those words are from the Progressives, another name for Socialists. The Progressive Movement had its birth and growth during the administrations of Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR). Wilson and FDR were able to appoint social progressive judges to the Supreme Court who made rulings from the bench that reinforced Progressivism. And now, our current President has taken the Progressive policies to heights unacceptable to average Americans. The Progressives believe that only the central government knows what is best for the common man and that power should be in the hands of the central government.

Your description of social justice, social security, Medicare and healthcare were not issues for the Founders. Rather, it was and is the responsibility of the community through the churches to provide for the poor, the sick and indigent. “The power under the Constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can, and undoubtedly will, be recalled.” — George Washington. With the acceptance of the editorial staff, I would like to respond to your other charges at a later date.

King William counties. Bricks cost $60 each and may be engraved in honor of someone or with words and numbers of your choice such as family names, initials, important dates, Bible verses, your favorite hymns or songs, love or thank you notes, etc. Each brick is approximately 4x8 inches and may be engraved with as many as three lines of text and up to 16 characters per line. Spaces count as characters. Order forms are available from immanueloc.org or 779-3454. Gift certificates also are available. Orders must be received by Sunday, Oct. 17. The Rev. Ryan Kuratko said, “We are excited to offer the community a chance to participate in this project, leave their mark on Immanuel and help beautify Old Church Road. We

also hope the new entrance will help more people realize that we are an active, growing congregation. We welcome everyone to join us for Sunday worship at 9 and 11 a.m. and Church School at 10. Nursery services are provided and we offer refreshments after the 11 a.m. service.” Im m anu e l C hu rch is a Virginia Historical Landmark and has been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. The origins of the church date to the early 18th century, when a frame church structure was shared with several other local congregations. The present brick church was constructed in 1853, largely due to the efforts of George Washington Bassett, grandnephew of Martha Custis Washington.

The church is considered to be the best example of Gothic Revival architecture in the county, and it represents the revitalization of the Episcopal Church in Virginia and the United States during the two decades prior to the Civil War. During the Civil War, the property served as a field hospital and army headquarters. Immanuel Church is located at 3263 Old Church Rd. in eastern Hanover County. Directions: Fr o m Mechanicsville, go east on U.S. 360 and turn right on Route 606 (Old Church Road) at West Store. Immanuel will be about 1.5 miles on the right.

Sea Cadets get real world experience While many kids talk about joining the military when they graduate from high school, five Mechanicsville teens are already trying it out through a program known as the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps. Russel Jarvis, Ryan Pellegrino, Ryan Socha, Joe Weggen and Nick Weggen are members of AMERICA Division, the Richmond area unit of the Naval Sea Cadets. The Naval Sea Cadets is a congressionally chartered nonprofit youth organization supported by the Navy, Coast Guard and Marine Corps, and sponsored by the Navy League of the United States. Cadet Seaman Apprentice Socha, a sophomore at Lee Davis High School, attended his first Sea Cadet training this summer, graduating from Recruit Training (“Boot Camp”), held at Camp Pendleton State Military Reservation in Virginia Beach. Sea Cadet Boot Camp is developed by the U.S. Navy, modeled directly after the Navy Recruit Training in Great Lakes, Ill. Recruits learn how to make a military rack with hospital corners, shine shoes, march in a unit, and work as a team. They also learn about Navy Heritage and Customs. Many of the staff officers are active duty or retired military. When asked about the training, Socha said, “Attending was a great experience. I would definitely do it all again. I didn’t miss home, but I did miss eating at McDonald’s.” This summer Cadet Seaman Pellegrino, a sophomore at Atlee High School, participated in a 13-day Basic Airman Training, held at Naval Station

Norfolk. Cadets from all over the United States, as far away as California, traveled to Virginia to get this opportunity. “I learned what it means to be an Airman and what their job is in the Navy. We learned about aerodynamics, fixed and rotary winged aircraft, jet engines and teamwork. I got handson training with the men and women of HM-14, a squadron that is one of two airborne mine countermeasure squadrons in the Navy. HM-14 uses the powerful MH-53 Sea Dragon helicopter for mine countermeasure and transport of personnel and equipment. I was proud to be part of serving my country and working with the men and women of the U.S. Navy.” Cadet Seaman Jarvis, also a sophomore at Atlee, attended Field Operations (Hand to Hand Combat) training in Matthews, N.C. The objective of this training is to expose the cadets to hand-to-hand self-defense techniques. Hand-to-Hand included striking and grappling instruction, techniques for disarming an attacker, and an overview on how to deal with multiple attackers. The training also included daily fitness instruction, including training in the functional movements of fitness and dietary recommendations and lecture. Seaman Jarvis said he feels very fortunate to have been able to attend this training and really enjoyed being taught by the ex-KGB world champion. This was a very physical and demanding training that required each cadet to be in tiptop shape. Cadet Petty Officer Second Class Nicholas Weggen, a junior at Atlee, had a different experience, getting to

serve as a staff member helping run the Master at Arms Academy at Naval Air Station Oceana. “I attended the Academy last year and learned so much I wanted to come back and staff. The Master at Arms (MAs) are the Navy’s Military Police. The Navy MAs serve all over the world to provide security for our military as well as for our national interests overseas. They teach how to apprehend suspects, search vehicles and buildings, and how to shoot weapons. We also learned how the security force works on a large Navy ship when we toured the USS OAK HILL. I was there to make sure the cadets learned the basics of what a Cadet Master at Arms needs to help run a Sea Cadet unit, which means a lot of regulations, discipline and attention to detail.” As a rising senior at Atlee High School, Cadet Petty Officer First Class

Joseph Weggen wanted to spend his last summer as a cadet at training related to a potential college major. He attended Photojournalism Training at Navy Submarine Base King’s Bay, Ga. “At Photojournalism, I worked with the Navy photographers and

journalists to create the base newspaper. I learned to write articles, interview people, and edit copy. They also taught me how to take better photos and edit them on the computer. I am considering a career in journalism so this was a great way to try it out with no obligation.” In addition to attending at least two weeks of the summer training, the cadets drill one weekend a month at the Navy Operational Support Center Richmond on Strathmore Road. The monthly program offers practical and adventurous activities on a military and nautical theme aimed at developing vital life skills, like leadership, team work and responsibility, while offering young people a chance to excel in a nurturing and positive environment. AMERICA Division is currently accepting new members, and is open to students in the Metro Richmond area ages 10-17. For more information, visit www.americadivision.com.

Hanoverian roots run deep at State Fair By Art Taylor Special to The Mechanicsville Local

This year’s State Fair of Virginia at The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County once again highlighted Hanoverians’ long and continuous contributions to the fair, particularly in the Heritage Village. From the Virginia State Agricultural Society’s first State Fair of Virginia in Richmond’s 11-acre “Western Square” (Monroe Park) to this year’s fair, Hanoverians have always been there. Richard Wallace and Art Taylor’s 19th century Virginia Implement Exhibit in Heritage Village featured several native Hanoverians who were awarded cash premiums at that first State Fair. In the Agricultural Implements competition as reported in the Nov. 17, 1853, Richmond Daily Dispatch and the January 1854 Southern Planter Magazine. John Haw (ca. 1802-1873)

of Spring Grove Farm and Haw’s Shop was awarded the $30 premium for best sweep horse power, patented by him March 14, 1845, and George Watt (1815-1884) of Springfield Plantation (Watt House) of Geo. Watt & Co. of Richmond was awarded the $6 premium for Watt’s cuff and brace cultivator, which had elements of his Cuff and Brace Plow patented April 11, 1842, while a resident of Gainesville, Ala. Many other Hanoverians exhibited and were awarded premiums in the different branches and classes from livestock, poultry, vegetables, agriculture crops to canning, sewing, cooking, etc., at that first fair. This year’s fair featured many of the same branches and classes with ribbon awards as opposed to cash premiums. Many Hanoverians such as Charlotte, Everett, Gene Scott and children, Danny and Jason Talley, Jim Perkins, Carl

Allen, Wesley Carneal, Danny O’Steen, Andy Britton and Art Taylor more recently, are responsible for some of the core makeup of the volunteer exhibits from the “Americana” late 19th century, early 20th century collections to the early “hit and miss” one cylinder gasoline engines that replaced steam power to the more modern farm tractors. Many of the volunteer exhibitors have been plying their trade for as many as 20 to 25 years. It is through the efforts of these many Hanoverians and the many other at-large volunteers that the State Fair of Virginia remains the success it is today in its second year at this wonderful and spacious new location. It still enjoys the same reputation that was established in that very first State Fair that was closed by former President of the United States John Tyler on Nov. 4, 1853. Art Taylor is president of the Hanover County Historical Society.

EVB supports 2010 Junior Achievement

V Cancer Cancer -After -Afterthe theDiagnosis. Diagnosis.

Hanover Green Veterinary Clinic, having a special interest in oncology, now offers chemotherapy for patients with cancer. Pet owners have an alternative to the stress, inconvenience, and expense of going to veterinary schools or referral facilities when seeking information about treatment options, expected costs, and prognoses. The most up to date information regarding treatment doses and intervals, as well as careful patient monitoring, have markedly reduced the complications that once made chemotherapy unsafe. Nonetheless, a decision to treat a pet with cancer should also be based on compassion and each individualʼs circumstances. We will work closely with owners and their family veterinarians in making the most thoughtful and caring decisions for each patient. With early detection and treatment, many patients can expect a greatly improved quality and quantity of life.

Stages of breast cancer Breast cancer comes in many stages. The rate of survival improves the earlier the cancer is detected. Stage 0: Cancerous cells have not spread outside of the ducts or lobules into surrounding breast tissue. This stage is classified in two types, ductual carcinoma in situ and lobular carcinoma in situ. This is a very early cancer, which, if caught promptly, can be successfully treated. X

STAGE I: The cancer is no larger than 2 centimeters and has not spread beyond the breast to lymph nodes.

X

STAGE IIA: The tumor can be larger than 2 centimeters but no larger than 5. Or, the cancer is not larger than 2 centimeters, but has spread to up to three auxiliary underarm lymph nodes.

X

STAGE IIB: The tumor has grown between 2 and 5 centimeters and has spread to up to three auxiliary underarm lymph nodes. Or, the cancer is larger than 5 centimeters but has not spread.

X

STAGE IIIA: The tumor is between 2 and 5 centimeters in size and has spread to at least 9 auxiliary underarm lymph nodes.

X

STAGE IIIB: The tumor has spread beyond the breast to tissues nearby, such as the skin, chest wall, ribs, muscles, or lymph nodes in the chest wall.

X

STAGE IV: The cancer has spread to other organs or tissues.

In terms of 5-year survival rate, individuals with Stage 0 can expect 100 percent recovery. Individuals with Stage IV, however, have a 16 percent survival rate. — Metro Creative

Understanding breast cancer Each year, Mother’s Day in the United States helps shed light on the problem of breast cancer. Heightened efforts at raising awareness of breast cancer around Mother’s Day include the cooperation of many corporations, including Major League Baseball, whose players use pink bats in a show of support for breast cancer victims and survivors. But breast cancer is an issue that extends beyond the month of May, and many people might be surprised to learn of breast cancer’s prevalence. In the United States alone, breast cancer incidence in women is 1 in 8, or roughly 13 percent. In fact, among women in the U.S., breast cancer rates are higher than those of any cancer besides lung cancer.

With such staggering figures, it’s important for both women and men (who can also suffer from breast cancer) to gain a greater understanding of this deadly disease.

What Is Breast Cancer?

a tumor. In the case of breast cancer, cancerous cells gradually invade nearby healthy breast tissue and make their way into the underarm lymph nodes, which are small organs that filter out foreign substances in the body. If the cancer reaches the lymph nodes, it then has a pathway into other parts of the body. Upon diagnosis, a patient will be told what stage of breast cancer they are in, which tells how far the cancer has spread beyond the original tumor.

Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. Any type of cancer is the result of mutations in genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy. In a healthy body, the cells replace themselves in an orderly fashion, Is Breast Cancer as healthy new cells take over as Hereditary? old ones die out.

Can Breast Cancer Be Prevented? Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is always an ideal approach, but breast cancer is never the fault of the individual. A balanced diet, a lifestyle that includes abstaining from smoking and drinking alcohol in excess and regular exercise are all ways to stay healthy, but none will guarantee a woman or man will not get breast cancer.

Are There Risk Factors for Breast Cancer? BreastCancer.org notes that there are factors a woman or man can control that might lessen their risk for breast cancer. Those risks include: Weight. Post-menopausal women in particular can reduce their risk of breast cancer by maintaining a healthy weight. Fat tissue is the body’s main source of estrogen after menopause, and having more fat tissue means higher estrogen levels, which increases breast cancer risk. Diet. Many cancers are

Practicing breast self-awareness Ruby Nails Early detection of breast cancer is the single-most effective way to beat the disease. That is why it is essential for women to conduct their own breast exams to discover any potential anomalies early on. While doctors stress the importance of self-examination, many women still show up for routine wellness visits admitting they don’t do examinations because they simply don’t know how. Perhaps because the practice was given the formal name “breast self-exam.” Today, however, doctors tell women to have “breast self-awareness.” That means women don’t have to follow a set protocol regarding checking for breast changes, and simply being aware of how the breasts look and feel is key. Why the change in the formalities? Doctors have determined that most women notice a lump in their breasts while doing routine activities, such as bathing or dressing. They also figured out that a formal method of examining the breasts was not necessary. Lumps can be found simply by touching the breasts in any pattern, as long as the entire breast is checked. To demystify the process even further, follow these guidelines.

linked to diet, but studies have yet to show for certain which types of foods increase the risk for breast cancer. In general, it’s good to restrict sources of red meat and other animal fats, such as fats from dairy products. Some studies have shown that eating a lot of red and/or processed meats is associated with a higher risk of breast cancer. Eating a diet low in fat and rich in fruits and vegetables is often recommended to reduce cancer risk. Exercise. The American Cancer Society recommends engaging in 45 to 60 minutes of physical exercise 5 or more days per week, as evidence continues to mount that exercise can reduce breast cancer risk. Alcohol and smoking. Alcohol limits the liver’s ability to control blood levels of estro-

their appearance and shape. Recognizing subtle differences can help alert a doctor if something is amiss. Be conscious of these changes: • changes in breast size, shape, skin texture, or color • dimpling or puckering of the breast • discharge from the nipples • scaliness of the skin • nipple pulling to one side • lump or mass in the breast • enlarged lymph node under the arm Any changes or questions about breast condition should be promptly brought up with a doctor.

anxiety and exposure to estrogen. While all of the mentioned risk factors are within an individual’s control, there are a host of additional factors beyond a person’s control that can increase risk of breast cancer. These fac-

How many women get breast cancer? National organizations and Web sites

The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:

American Cancer Society Toll-Free number: 1-800-227-2345 Web site: www.cancer.org

About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women

National Breast Cancer Coalition Toll-free number: 1-800-622-2838 Web site: www.stopbreastcancer.org

About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is noninvasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).

National Cancer Institute Toll-free number: 1-800-4-CANCER (1-800-422-6237) Web site: www.cancer.gov

About 39,840 deaths from breast cancer (women) Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 35. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States.

Inaugural Charity Bachelor Auction and Shop for the Cure a hit By Elizabeth Farina Media General News Service To say the bachelors were nervous before taking the stage would be an understatement at the inaugural 2010 Charity Bachelor Auction and Shop for the Cure on Friday, Sept. 17, at CenterStage’s Rhythm Hall. Among the beaming grins, numbered paddles and attentive bidders, the evening offered an oppor-

tunity to be flirtatious with Richmond’s eligible bachelors as well as raise awareness and funds for the Richmond Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Chesterfield County resident Susan Groves, River City Charities organizer and founder of the Pink Tie Gala, was inspired to launch the September bachelors’ auction when her friends said they would like to take a great date to the annual October gala fundraiser.

Groves recruited 20 Richmond bachelors of all ages and professional backgrounds to be auctioned as a date to the 4th annual Pink Tie Gala, which will be held on Saturday, Oct. 23, at The Marriott in downtown Richmond. In fact, some would say that Friday evening was nuts with Nutzy, the Richmond Squirrels’ mascot, as one of the bachelors up for auction. However, most bachelors agreed that the cause outweighed any crazy nerves that might happen on stage. “Breast cancer is definitely an issue that needs to be addressed, and anything I can do to help -small or large -- I’m willing to do it,” Richard “Rich” Rodgers, a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual in Richmond, said.

Besides being auctioned for a date, each bachelor also presented a date package for the winning bidder. Rodgers, who also is an arena football player for Richmond Revolution, created a fitness package that included three months free at American Family Fitness and three personal training sessions with him. Rodgers was one of the two auctioned dates for the evening that reached more than $500. For Chesterfield County resident Bill Levitt, stamping out cancer was why he volunteered to be a bachelor. Levitt jokingly said he hoped to “go for more than 25 cents.” He didn’t have to worry with help in the crowd from friend Sherry Venant, who was on hand to help drive up the price.

Trevor Dickerson, who had a few committed bids before the auction began, had no regrets going into the evening. “It’s just something that I thought would be fun to do, and since it goes towards such a great cause, why not?” Bachelor Drew Wilkins was drawn to the event through friends, who are breast cancer survivors. “I have two friends. Loralyn, who actually is going to be dancing at the Pink Tie Gala. She was 33 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. I also have a friend Gretchen who was diagnosed at a super, super early age. I believe she was 21 or 22, and she had to have a double mastectomy. She was one reason why I came out to support this event too because it was something that was dear to me.” Wilkins was quick to point out that men should be more comfortable talking about breast cancer. “I would say one in 1,000 men will develop breast cancer over their lifetime, so it’s just not a disease that affects women,” he said. In fact, this year the Pink Tie Gala will feature dance team member Hardy Graves of Mechanicsville. The breast cancer survivor has been practicing his Fox Trot for the gala at Rigby’s Jig Dance Studio with other Celebration of Life Dance Team members. Groves also announced the addition of a free Women’s Wellness Expo, presented by Bon Secours Richmond Health System. The expo, which will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, at The Marriott, will provide an occasion for women to speak with health pro-

HARDY GRAVES

fessionals about women’s health issues. The gala will be held later that evening at the same location. The three events benefit the Richmond Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. “We’re always excited this time of year because a lot of folks like Susan [Groves], who raise money for us, and we’re so grateful,” Richmond Affiliate executive director Linda Tiller said. The Richmond Affiliate contributed more than $600,000 to 14 different organizations in Virginia this past year, Tiller said. “It’s so exciting to see how many people donate $15, $20, $25, $50 at a time contribute to Komen and then it all turns into money for $50,000 grants for education, screening and treatment for underserved women that stays in the Central Virginia area,” she said. For information about the Women’s Wellness Expo and ticket or sponsor information for the 4th annual Pink Tie Gala, visit pinktiegala.org. Elizabeth Farina is editor of The Midlothian Exchange.

Hawks make big first impression

Not just a milestone but a stepping stone

www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online!

Charlie Leffler/The Local

Highland Springs quarterback D.J. Johnson, center, found the going tough against the Hanover defense. While field position played a key role, the Hawks’ defense held the Springers scoreless and allowed only 14 yards of offense in the second half of the milestone win.

Hanover’s KJ Weatherspoon, left, got position on a pass intended for Highland Springs receiver Marcellus Carter. The pair dove for the catch, collided in midair and neither came away with the ball. However, on the night, Weatherspoon finished the game with two interceptions in the Hawks’ landmark 27-8 victory at Highland Springs.

“Yes. Yes,” said Hanover coach Josh Just. “This is a good football program, but people say we can’t play against speed and couldn’t beat the elite teams. Highland Springs is an elite team. We showed we belong. We want to play and beat everybody on our schedule.” The Hawks, ranked No. 3

in The Times-Dispatch Top 10, were 0-7 against the fifth-ranked Springers before last night. The past two meetings Hanover had played well enough to win, but Highland Springs won on the scoreboard. “It’s a big milestone, but that see HAWKS, pg. 35 `

When the final seconds ticked off the Kreiter Stadium clock at Highland Springs on Friday night, it was not just a signal that another football game had come to a close. Nor did it just signal the final tally in a 27-8 win for Hanover High School. In much more than a metaphoric sense, the scoreboard also signaled the beginning of a new era of football for Hanover. For so long, the Springers have been the undefeatable foe in the face of valiant efforts from Hanover. But after Friday night, the local squad can rejoice, singing, ‘Ding-Dong the witch is dead.’

But make no mistake about it, this was not an upset win for Hanover. The Hawks came into the game ranked higher and favored to win over the Springers. Yet, in the past the Springer stigma, especially on their home field, served as a stake in heart of opponent’s confidence. Highland Springs sideline is regularly crowded tradition. On Friday, former Hokie and NFL player Victor “Macho” Harris was at the game. As a comparative newcomer to football tradition, on Hanover’s sideline there were only cheerleaders. The Springer players swaggered onto the field, dancing with an air of bravado (albeit, see MILESTONE, pg. 35 `

celebration is all you’re going to see,” Hanover running back Deane Cheatham said. “We’ve set our goals as high as we can go. It’s a week-to-week process.” Cheatham, an All-Metro first-teamer last year, rushed for 167 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. He also caught a 38yard TD pass from quarterback Sam Rogers, who rushed for 95 yards and two touchdowns. Punters Oscar Portillo (Highland Springs) and Andrew Knizner and both defenses were the stars in the first quarter. Highland Springs lost a fumble. So did Cheatham, who was stretching for the goal line. “Those guys got mad and said it wasn’t going to happen again,” Just said. “I can’t remember the last time he fumbled.” The Springers (0-1, 3-1) proceeded to keep the ball more than 11 minutes after starting at their 2-yard line, but quarterback D.J. Johnson fumbled

that changed after one series against the Hawks). “It’s coming into a hostile environment,” said Hanover quarterback Sam Rogers. “It means a lot for our program to come in here and do it. What makes Hanover’s win over the Springers more impressive is that the Hawks are a Group AAA Div. 5 team, which technically should be playing in Group AA. Not only did they beat a Group AAA Div. 6 team, but they beat one that is regularly ranked among Virginia’s best in the state’s top football division, and did it on their home field. “We know we’re Div. 5 but we want to play and beat everyone on our schedule,” said Hanover head coach Josh Just. “It’s not just about Div. 5. We don’t care whoever we’re playing, we don’t care who it is, we

Hanover senior running back Deane Cheatham, left, and sophomore quarterback Sam Rogers, right, were the dynamic duo for the Hawks in Hanover’s 27-8 win over Highland Springs. Cheatham rushed for 167 yards on 23 carries and one touchdown, had a 38-yard TD reception and scored on a two-point conversion. Rogers was 6-for-12, passing for 82 yards and one TD while rushing for 92 yards on 19 carries, scoring twice.

on fourth down, and Hanover recovered at the 50. Three plays later, Rogers scored from the 5. His 43-yard run on the first play set up the TD. The Hawks (1-0, 4-0) led 7-0 at halftime. “We got a good chewing out at halftime,” Cheatham said. “We put it on them pretty good in the second half. We were

much more physical.” Hanover’s K.J. Weatherspoon intercepted Johnson twice in the second half, although batting one down would have given the Hawks better field position. The Hawks started possessions in the second half at Highland Springs’ 26, 35, 39 and 30 yard lines.

“The defense gave us opportunities in the second half, and we showed what we could do,” Rogers said. Highland Springs had 14 yards of offense in the second half and didn’t run a play from scrimmage in the fourth quarter. The Springers’ touchdown was Tareek Folsom’s 27-yard interception return when he

sniffed out a screen pass and picked it off. Varina is next on the Hawks’ schedule. Hanover is 0-7 against the Blue Devils. “It was a huge step getting this milestone and checking it off the list,” Rogers said. “Now we can look to Varina next week. Every game is the most important game for us.”

want to play to win. Our kids did that tonight. “We want to show that we belong,” Just said. “We just got another milestone,” Rogers said. “We’re taking it step by step and that’s one of our goals.” The Hawks’ victory was not just a milestone, but more importantly a stepping stone. After years of frustrating closebut-no-cigar losses, Hanover finally came away with a win over the seemingly, eternally invincible Springers. The Hawks were playing not only for themselves but for every Hanover player past and present. “We respect them, they’re a great program,” Rogers said. “They’ve always been top dog and I remember the years watching my brother (Ben Rogers) play. And over the years (Highland Springs) would just beat them and they beat them bad. I was playing for them, playing for those guys, playing

for the seniors who got their last chance at them.” Confidence is always a key in reaching victory but the confidence Hanover gained with the win is priceless. In years past, losses were wrapped in the feeling that they could have beaten the Springers. Now, Hanover knows for a fact that they can and did beat Highland Springs. “It’s huge,” Just said. “We wanted to get over the hump and I think we did.” “We know what we’re capable of and we showed it here,” Rogers said. “We’ve got confidence in ourselves and we did a good job.” Ironically, Just believes the Hawks made major strides in confidence from a game they lost. When Hanover fell to eventual state champion Phoebus 10-7 in last year’s Div. 5 state semifinals, they learned something about themselves. “I think the Phoebus game

kind of raised our eyebrows, where if we’d have played this differently we’d had a better shot,” Just said. “I think they saw that. They saw that they can play with anyone and I think it carried on into the off season. It was really our effort against Phoebus. I hate to say a loss helps us but I think that loss helped us to put everything into perspective.” So, how good is Hanover? When it comes to perspective, take these numbers into account. Maxpreps.com currently ranks Phoebus, the team that barely beat Hanover last year, No. 1 in the state of Virginia and No. 48 in the nation. Hanover is ranked No. 10 in VA and 274th in the U.S. Not to be overlooked, Atlee currently sits at 23rd in VA and 628th in the nation. This Friday, Atlee can join Hanover in the milestone/stepping stone category. The two Hanover County teams can

cross more stepping stones toward their football futures when No. 7 Atlee travels to No. 10 Henrico while No. 3 Hanover hosts No. 9 Varina. A win by Hanover would truly put them in the position of being the team to beat, something completely unthinkable at this time last year. And though they defeated one seemingly invincible team, the Hawks know they have one

left to go. “It’s a big win for the program but you know we win this game then next week we’ve got Varina, that’s almost even bigger,” said Hanover running back Deane Cheatham. “It’s check off the list, like Coach Just said and take another one next week and go on from there; keep it going.” Another milestone, another stepping stone.

Foutz scorches and Hawks shine in rain Hanover takes Capital District crown while Atlee senior shoots 5-under By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com A two day postponement and steady rain did little to cool off Capital District golfers during their tournament at The Hollows last Wednesday. The Hanover Hawks golf team posted a school record 299 to take the championship with ease while Atlee senior Tanner Foutz blistered the course with a 5-under par 67. But Foutz’s score was not enough to carry the Raiders (318) past a strong effort from Lee-Davis, which scored 308 to claim second place and join Hanover with a regional berth. The tournament was originally scheduled to be played on Monday, Sept. 27 but with noon tee-times and a forecast of severe thunderstorms a move to Wednesday was mandated. Ironically, after early morning clouds on Monday the skies cleared into a beautiful day while Wednesday brought cool temperatures and steady rain. “You would think that our weathermen with all of their modern technology could come close to getting a weather forecast right from Monday to Wednesday,” said tournament director Bob Stratton, who pointed out they were at the discretion of a course’s ruling. “If you looked at the weather, today was the good day of the week. “But it is what it is and we survived the elements,” Stratton added congratulating the players for controlling their game under adverse conditions. With many of the golfers playing on a wet course for the first time since Spring, the

rounds were impressive across the board with an average 87.6 shot by the 24 scoring golfers. But it was Foutz who opened eyes when he came in with the first group to post at 5-under. “I just wanted to shoot anything under par,” Foutz said. “I knew it was going to be a little bit tougher with the rain, make it a little bit harder.” Ironically, Foutz’s day started off with a bogey on the first hole, but he bounced back. “I had an eagle and a few birdies and just played pretty consistent for the most part, hit the ball well, made the putts I needed to basically,” he said. For Foutz, the rain both helped and hindered his play. “It definitely made it more tough,” he said. “Just made everything wet but I kept switching gloves. This is definitely the worst I’ve played in, in a while.” But other than slowing the putting surface, Foutz felt the rain benefited course condi-

tions. “It definitely softens the greens up a little bit,” he said. “For the most part it didn’t effect it too much in the fairways because they needed the water anyway. It just made less hardpan everywhere.” “Today was not a day to go under par,” said Hanover head coach Chris Pace. “That’s why Tanner Foutz’s accomplishment is really outstanding.” The performance by Foutz overshadowed a spectacular round from all of the Hanover golfers. Though the four scoring Hawks shot in the 70’s, Hanover two other competitors finished with 82. “We’re the deepest team here and it showed today,” said Pace, who returned as head coach of the Hawks golf team this season. “Justin Lynn playing the four slot and shooting 76, I think that speaks to our depth.” Last year’s district player of the year Trey Cully had a round not up to par but still finished

with a 77. “I actually had to stop hitting driver because the grip was so wet,” Cully said. “I couldn’t hit it.” “When you have kids that have a bad day and shoot 77 you’re certainly a favorite,” Pace said. Senior Reece Chalkey and Philip Hudson both posted 73 for the Hawks to set the stage for the record win. “We’d never broken 300 before in districts so it’s great to set a school record,” Chalkey said. “I played well, for the conditions, with it raining and windy outside, it’s tough to put up a normal score, so I thought I did really well today.” As early scores were posted it was clear that Hanover would repeat as district champions but second place appeared to be a toss-up between Lee-Davis and Atlee. For Lee-Davis, the wait was made much more anxious as each Confederate player

returned to the clubhouse to see Foutz’s 67. Jeremy Gilbert’s 76 was the first C-fed score posted and he was followed by Charlie Wilson (76) and Bobby Noble (82). Despite Foutz’s score, Lee-Davis was only trailed the Raiders by one point with three scores posted. Relief did not come until the final Confederate finished his round and the 73 by Zak

Lewis put Lee-Davis solidly in second. The Central Region Tournament teed off Monday at Jefferson Lakeside then moved to Stonehenge on Tuesday. Having set one school record, the Hanover players were looking for more as they head into regional play. “We haven’t made it to states before but you’ve got to see GOLF, pg. 37 `

start thinking this is the year,” Chalkey said. “I think we can definitely contend,” Culley agreed. “I’ve been on the golf team for four years now and this is the best chance of going to states that we’ve ever had.” –As did Pace. “If they did what they did today, I could have a lot of individual qualifiers going to states, and that’s never happened before in Hanover history,” he said. “I’d love to see it.” Individuals who qualified for regional play: Atlee: Thomas Moore (83), Andrew Crain (84), Stephen Waskiewicz (84) and Andrew Cridlin (85).

No. 24 Yellow Jackets down Wasps, move to 5-0 Second half surge sends R-MC past Emory & Henry 34-22 EMORY, VA – No. 24 (D3football.com) RandolphMacon scored 20 unanswered points to start the second-half as the Yellow Jackets got a key 3422 ODAC road win at Emory & Henry College on Saturday. R-MC is now 5-0 overall and 1-0 in the league, while E&H is 4-1 and 0-1 in the ODAC. Randolph-Macon used a balanced attack, rushing for 201 yards and throwing for 205 for a combined 406 total yards of offense. Running back Drake Sanders led the R-MC offense with 112 yards on 22 carries and scored two second-half touchdowns. Quarterback Austin Faulkner was 17-of-22 for 205

yards and two scores. Faulkner found Earl Peoples 10 times for 105 yards on the day as well. The R-MC defense was able to hold All-American running back Caleb Jennings to just 40 yards on 14 carries and allowed just seven points in the second half to help the Jackets to the win. Andrew Leonard led RMC with 10 tackles, while Mark Jackson and Jeremy Bowry (Matoaca) had eight and seven stops, respectively. Emory & Henry took the opening kickoff and ran nine plays into R-MC territory before the Yellow Jackets’ Joe Pricone recovered a fumble to give RMC the ball on its own 47. The Yellow Jackets then put together a seven-play drive, which saw Thaddeus Scruggs

run the ball five times for 39 yards, including a 23-yard scoring scamper to put R-MC up 7-0. On E&H’s ensuing possession, quarterback Dustin Beck found Anthony Sims for 64 yards on the third play of the drive, sending the Wasps’ to the RMC one-yard line and then Beck scored on a keeper one play later. The point after attempt failed, making the score 7-6 with 6:35 to go in the opening quarter. Randolph-Macon got the ball back and drove 52 yards on nine plays, down to the Wasps’ nine-yard line before coming up on a 4th down and one yard to go. The Jackets’ went for it, and Austin Faulkner found Zach Midulla (JR Tucker) on a play action pass to extend the R-MC

advantage to 14-6. E&H took a 15-14 lead into the locker room at intermission after the Wasps scored all nine points in the second stanza. The first three came on a Matt Churchin 39-yard field goal with 12:32 to play in the half. Beck then set up his second score of the day with a 47-yard run followed by another one yard keeper. The two-point conversion failed to keep it a one-point game. R-MC regained the lead after its first drive of the second half, taking the kickoff and driving 63 yards on seven plays in 3:13, scoring on a 10-yard pass from Faulkner to Peoples. The extra point was missed, leaving the Jackets’ lead at 20-15. The game remained that way

until the late part of the third quarter when a Peoples 42 yard punt return set up a Sanders 3-yard touchdown run to put R-MC up 27-15 with just under three minutes to go. Sanders then struck again when his one-yard scoring plunge with 8:23 to go in the contest, capped a 10 play, 81 yard drive that took 5:01 and extended the R-MC lead to 34-15. The Wasps rallied on its ensuing possession, marching 74 yards on just six plays, cutting their deficit to 34-22 when Beck ran for a 6-yard TD run with 6:33 to play. That would be as close as E&H would get as the Jackets offense got the ball back and ran out the clock, running 10 plays and picking up three first downs

to seal the victory. Randolph-Macon returns home Saturday to host ODAC rival Catholic at 1 p.m. From Randolph-Macon Athletics.

Hampden-Sydney runs road streak to 18 games No. 22 Tigers start ODAC 1-0, 35-27 over Catholic WASHINGTON, D.C.Head Coach Marty Favret enjoyed a nice homecoming at his alma mater as his No. 22 (AFCA) Tigers defeated Catholic University 35-27 in the first week of ODAC play. Hampden-Sydney received a huge offensive boost from sophomore running back Evan King, who scored the final three touchdowns of the game. With the win, HampdenSydney improves to 5-0 overall and 1-0 in the ODAC. H-SC took just two drives to strike first. On the seven play, 80-yard drive, junior quarterback Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) was 4-for-5 for 66 yards, including the 39-yard touchdown pass to junior Sean Cavanagh (Clover Hill). Four plays later Catholic tied the game at 7-7 after

38

Greg Cordivari hit Lawerence DeSimone for a five-yard touchdown. The Tigers fumbled on the first play of the next drive, which set up Catholic for an 11-play, 70-yard drive that lasted for four and a half minutes. On fourth and 11, Cordivari and the Cardinals chose to go four seven rather than three, and it paid off with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Tanner Keefe to end the first quarter up 14-7. The Tigers’ found pay dirt with their second drive of the second quarter. With the ball on the Catholic 33, it took just one play with Lane to hit Kyle Vance for the equalizer. Hampden-Sydney’s defense forced a three-and-out, but Scotty Braswell picked off Lane in the end zone to give the Cardinals possession. Catholic began to steadily march down the field, take over six minutes on the drive. They reached

the H-SC 12-yard line, but the Tigers would not allow another first down, forcing Catholic to settle for a 21-yard field goal to go up 17-14 heading into intermission. The Tigers pounced first in the second half. After Chris Shembo danced his way 31 yards to the Catholic 2-yard line, King capped off the 53yard drive with the 2-yard scamper. Just 11 plays later, however, Catholic struck right back with a 28 yard field goal to cut the Hampden-Sydney lead to 21-20. The back-and-forth scoring continued, with H-SC scoring on the ensuing drive. After 14 plays, 61 yards and almost seven minutes, King again ran into the end zone, this time to go up 28-20 to end the third quarter. After a Catholic three-andout, Hampden-Sydney added a cushion to the lead with a four yard touchdown scamper

from King with 10:17 left in the game. The two possession lead was not safe, as Catholic in front of its Homecoming crowd - quickly moved the ball 85 yards down the field for a Cordivari to Alonza Cooke six yard touchdown connection. The comeback was too late, though, as Hampden-Sydney was able to control and move the ball for the final 5:44 of the game for the 35-27 win. Offensively, Lane was 25-for-34 for 319 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Vance and Cavanagh combined for 11 receptions, 207 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Andrew Bruckner (L.C. Bird) had a game-high nine receptions for 83 yards. King tallied 71 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Catholic’s Pitensberger led all rushers with 185 yards on 35 carries. Cordivari was 24for-32 with 234 yards and three

touchdowns. Defensively, Trevor Ikwild led all tacklers with 17, while Steven Fogleman (Hanover) tallied 10 stops. August Berling (Benedictine) and Kenny Fryman (Hanover) each had nine tackles. Hampden-Sydney returns to action this Saturday, October 9 as it travels to Bridgewater College for a 1 p.m. kickoff. From Hampden-Sydney Athletics.

Waller (11 carries, 102 yards) was just 5 of 16 passing, but his 124yard total included TD strikes of 31 yards to Kenny Mock and 28 yards to Gibson Vaught. Josh Thomas (two 5-yard

TD runs) and Brian Houchens (13 carries, 95 yards) also provided backfield production. Andy Joyce led the defensive effort with three sacks and an interception. Jarrell Pringle’s 40-yard pass to Darius Simpson accounted for Thomas Jefferson’s score. Thomas Jefferson.....0 7 0 0 — 7 Patrick Henry.......... 8 26 13 6 — 53
