Stanley also said there is a growing need to provide high speed Internet to all areas of the county but said he didn’t want the county to pay for it.

He said he and his wife Nancy raised three children in Hanover and now have 17 grandchildren. “They are the reason I’m running,” he said. Hazzard suggested that real estate taxes are so high that his grandchildren might not be able to afford to live here. When it comes to economic development and jobs, Hazzard said Hanover County needs to be “open for business.” He said he is opposed to trying to attract a big company as a cure-all, preferring to attract small, momand-pop businesses that would “last and last and last.”

American Legion Post 175 dedicated its new home at 8700 Bell Creek Road Friday and all in attendance were proud of the new building and what it stands for. Post Commander James Kickler led the program that featured an array of national and local political figures and true patriots. The building dedication was given by Paul E. Galanti, a Prisoner of War (POW) from Jan. 17, 1966, to Feb. 12, 1973 in Vietnam. Galanti, who is now Commissioner of Virginia Department of Veterans Services, asked for a moment of silence during his remarks for those who had made the ultimate sacrifice while serving their country. “When I was a POW, I learned several things about myself,� he said. “I learned I wasn’t as tough as I thought I was and that no matter how hard I thought I had it, somebody else had it worse.� Galanti spoke briefly about those that served and made it back and those that didn’t. “We wanted to serve our

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

We are blessed to have caring neighbors here Velma Holmes and her family recently did something that should serve as an example to all of us about making a difference in our communities. We first learned of her incredible act of kindness in a letter to the editor that appeared in last week’s edition. After receiving a letter from her neighbors in Dogwood Knoll, she and her family submitted a letter of thanks. Then it was time to get the interview. She came by the office last Tuesday and it was, to say the least, a great pleasure to meet someone so genuine, compassionate and caring. Her story appears on today’s front page. While we often hear about and read about stories of illness, how many of us actually take the time to help others? This is the heart of Velma’s story. She saw a need and she responded. Despite her own ailments (fibromyalgia and back and neck problems), Velma spearheaded a fundraiser for her neighbor, Jimmy Dickerson, who recently was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She became emotional when she talked about what guided her to turn her home into a restaurant for a day. “God put it in my heart to do this. He just came to me and said, ‘Do it.’ ” To help Jimmy and his wife Connie, Velma hoped to raise about $500. When the last dinner was sold around 7 p.m. on Oct. 8, Velma’s husband Ryland told her they had brought in $2,500. Her eyes filled with tears when she recalled the support of her neighbors, as well as residents in other parts of Mechanicsville. She even received help from people in the Tappahannock area, which was her home until she married Ryland a few years ago. It’s heart-warming to encounter someone like Velma — and reminds us how fortunate we are to have such kind neighbors.

flyers and that Sunday (Oct. 2) we went from house to house. We went to 30 houses that Sunday. And, then, I think it was that Monday, I went out and put flyers in peoples’ doors and paper boxes, and that’s how it happened,” she said of advertising her fundraiser. The Sunday she and Ryland distributed the flyers “the phone just started ringing,” with orders being placed. Velma and Ryland did contact Jimmy and his wife Connie about their plans. “We wrote what we were going to do and then we carried it over to make sure it was OK for us to and they said, “Yes, that would be fine.’ ” As she started organizing for her fundraiser, Velma received $300 in donations to purchase the food. The dinners she sold included fried lake trout, baked or fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn pudding, corn bread, pound cake and apple cobbler. In addition to help from her husband, Velma’s daughter Tracy and son-in-law Jose Vidal joined in preparing the food. The dinners had price tags of $11 for fried chicken, $10 for baked chicken and lake trout fish for $12. Each also included two side dishes. Desserts were sold for $3 each. After she spent the $300 to buy food, Ryland contributed nearly $400 to support his wife’s fundraiser. Velma was still receiving donations the day after the sale. “People came Sunday giving money. I saw Connie afterwards and she said people were coming to her door giving money. She didn’t even know who the people were. They said they got one of my flyers.” Recalling that Saturday, Velma said, “If you could have been there to see all these people — my den was full, my kitchen

was full. People were standing there waiting for orders. People were coming in all directions.” Many paid more than Velma was asking for her dinners. “They were giving me extra – like $50, $100.” She smiled thinking about the atmosphere in her house. “I think the most important thing was when people were in my home, they were talking. It was like one big family. They were talking — even the mailman that delivered the mail [joined in the conversation]. I’m 59 years old and I’ve never seen anything like that in my life.” People started arriving at Velma’s house at 11 a.m. “We had orders that had to be ready at 11:30.” Those were the first orders to be filled. “The last person that had an order was at 7 o’clock and he said that was the nicest thing that we ever did. Everybody said that.” She couldn’t estimate the number of dinners that went out her doors on Oct. 8. “I ran out of baked chicken, I ran out of fried chicken. I had to make another cobbler. I had a neighbor peeling potatoes and another slicing apples for the apple cobblers.” Velma said she was outside when her husband told her to come into the house, “because we’re going to count the money.” Velma, who came to Mechanicsville from the Tappahannock area when she married Ryland, said she and two friends from her hometown went into her dining room. “They helped count the money and I stood there. Ryland said, ‘Velma, we collected $2,500’ and I dropped. I sat in the chair. I was in shock. I couldn’t believe it.” That evening, she went to Jimmy and Connie’s house. “They were getting ready to get in the car and I asked them if they would come over because we wanted to give them something. They didn’t drive over, she pushed him.” Since his diag-

Childhood school trip becomes a reality Mom accompanies Mechanicsville Elementary School son on Jamestown trip she missed (Editor’s note: The following was submitted by Tywana Hampton of Mechanicsville.) n 1968 when I was a fourth grader at Robert E Lee Elementary School in Spotsylvania County, I was unable to accompany my fourth grade class on the annual trip to Jamestown.

My son and I were both so excited about the trip. When we boarded the bus, I wanted to jump up and announce to everyone that — after 43 years — I was finally getting the chance to go to Jamestown, but I contained myself!

The trip was great. Even though the Jamestown trip is designed for fourth graders, I don’t think they have the life experience to totally appreciate the many lessons to be learned there. I watched them as they were sometimes engaged and

other times totally aloof. This trip gave me a deeper understanding of the history of the State of Virginia and of our country. I also have a greater appreciation for the freedom and quality of life we experience today.

The 5-year-old movie star has many talents, including playing basketball, which she will show off to Extravaganza crowds Friday through Sunday, Nov. 4-6, at the Meadow Event Park. Steve Foster, Grace’s owner, said, “Grace and I are very pleased to return to Equine Extravaganza. Being able to come to an event that

started her career is great. It’s even better when it’s close to home!” Grace first attended the Equine Extravaganza in 2008 where she won the America’s Ultimate Horse Idol competition. “It’s not every day that Hollywood starlets come to Doswell,” said Vicki O’Hara, organizer of Equine Extravaganza. “It is wonderful to see how far she’s come from her 2008 Extravaganza win.

Our public servants were prepared and out in force helping our businesses and citizens get their lives back to normal. We sincerely appreciate the long hours and dedication to serving our citizens. Here are just a few examples of what county employees were able to accomplish for our citizens: In two hours they reduced road closures from 200 to 20 so that power companies could reach downed power lines and citizens could travel as needed. They provided water — both bottled (5,100 cases) and bulk — along with 5,700 bags of ice. They extended hours at service centers for debris disposal as citizens cleaned their properties and brought in more than 10,000 cubic yards of debris. They opened a high school as an emergency shelter for families. All of this was possible because of extensive planning

gained a lot of knowledge and insight of the workings of local government. During the course of his professional life in Hanover, he has represented clients before the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors. Canova Peterson truly loves Hanover County and the town of Mechanicsville. His approach to serving as a member of the Board of Supervisors would be one emphasizing freedom first and a small government approach.

In an era of increasing regulation on businesses and individuals, Canova Peterson would seek to limit government interference in the lives of the citizens of Mechanicsville, businesses and civic groups such as churches and religious organizations. As a businessman, Canova Peterson would bring much insight into economic development. I believe that his experience as a business owner would be of great benefit in the areas of encouraging the growth of business in the county, and by extension job growth and development in

Mechanicsville and Hanover County as a whole. Canova Peterson is seeking this office because of a deeply rooted feeling of a responsibility to give back to the county that he has lived in for so many years. The driving force behind Canova Peterson’s efforts to seek this seat on the Board of Supervisors is a deep love for the country. Over the years, Canova Peterson has served in the military and has fought for his country. He has worked hard during his life to become the successful businessman that

he is today. As a member of the Board of Supervisors he would work to keep government growth in check and seek to ensure that the young people growing up today have the same opportunities that he has been blessed with over the years.

As a voting Republican and a Hanover resident for over 28 years, I attended what I thought was a candidates’ forum held in Montpelier and heard only one set of candidates. There I heard Wayne Hazzard speak. Since 1955, I have voted Republican in all but one election. This will be the second. Candidate Hazzard in the South Anna District is quick to tell us in glittering generalities what is wrong with John Gordon and Hanover County but is real short of solutions. In Mr. Hazzard’s view, John Gordon is responsible for all of Hanover’s problems and we need to elect three or four (Tea Party) candidates whose heroes reside in Texas to correct our miserable lives in Hanover County. I, for one, count Texas, and Houston, for example, as the last place on earth we’d use as a model for Hanover! John Gordon has been at the forefront of our lives in the South Anna District. I have not always agreed with John, but I do respect him and I know he has South

Anna’s and Hanover’s best interests at heart. Mr. Hazzard makes popular statements that lack backup and, most importantly, lack any thought to the repercussions of his cuts, changes and deletions. Hanover boasts a 90 percent satisfaction rating of living in the county. The AAA bond rating, a balanced budget and no tax increases for the last three years is a tribute to John, county administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. and the Board of Supervisors. It is the easiest thing in the world to just say, “no, no, cut, cut.” The tough part comes when you require the logic of a plan and the foresight to see the results of your “cut, cut, no, no” plan. Mr. Hazzard offers neither solutions nor thought of the consequences of his programmed agenda. John Gordon has the experience, the foresight and knowledge to continue Hanover’s successful path. Please consider John as your candidate for re-election to South Anna’s position on the Board of Supervisors. Don Lancaster Rockville

‘Well-connected’ needed on board Recently, I read a remark regarding our upcoming Board of Supervisor elections that some candidates are too “well-connected.” If “well-connected” means that a candidate has earned the trust of our federal and state representatives, then that is exactly what we need. So much of effective governing in Hanover depends on resources passed down from the federal and state budgets. We citizens benefit from representatives who can strongly advocate for Hanover County while working with McDonnell, Cantor, Peace, Cox and McDougle.

Angela Kelly-Wiecek has worked for over a decade supporting and building relationships with those who represent Hanover County in Congress and the General Assembly. They know Angela and they trust her. She will be a more effective advocate for us in the Chickahominy District and Hanover County than her opponent. She has the experience and trust to ensure that Hanover County’s interests are upheld among higher levels of government. Angela deserves our vote on Nov. 8. Laura Holzgrefe Hanover

Support for Gordon I’m writing in support of John Gordon for re-election in Hanover County as South Anna supervisor. John is conservative. The board’s response to the recession (budget reduction, no layoffs or service cuts), the AAA bond rating, steady low taxrate and lauded below average per capita spending directly reflect John’s long leadership on the Board’s finance committee. John knows that low taxes hinge on a healthy economic mix. He’s been instrumental in county action creating current “product” (business ready space with all services) in the Interstate 95/U.S. 1 corridor, and long-term vision (3,000plus acres set aside) in the South Anna District. The number and quality of new businesses (drive Lakeridge Parkway sometime) and planned projects (outlet mall) over the last decade prove Hanover’s emergence as a genuine competitor to our freespending neighbors. John knows small business as a business owner himself see LETTERS, pg. 19 `


LETTERS Continued from pg. 18b

and recent appointee by Gov. McDonnell to the Governor’s Small Business Commission. John is accessible to his neighbors, and is an effective advocate for them. Give him a call, you’ll see. John knows and supports public safety. Response times for fire, EMT and the sheriff are better than ever with the board’s support. The sheriff is nationally accredited. Hanover is the safest community in the region. John knows education. John’s long School Board service,coupled with his supervisor work, is, as much as one person’s service can be, responsible for Hanover’s fine schools, which shine in every measure regionally, statewide and nationally. John is a selfless leader, proven over decades of service to Hanover and his South Anna neighbors, with little or no remuneration. He is a humble, decent, principled man. John’s faith is genuine — not a political code word or talisman. That’s conservatism in action. Hanover’s “direction” doesn’t need changing. Forced national criticisms don’t fly in Hanover. Continued improvement, building on the strengths listed by Bob Rayner (RT-D Sunday, Aug. 7, 2011), is what John has always advocated and will continue to deliver. Vote conservative. Vote John Gordon for Hanover’s South Anna supervisor on Nov. 8.

the far reaches of Hanover County. It is amazing to me that in a time of heretofore unknown financial crisis in this country, brought upon by unparalleled (and unconstitutional) spending at federal and state levels, that the county is considering funding yet another boondoggle. From what the reader can discern from the article, there are students and people with home offices in the county who do not have cable service, so the citizens of the county are being asked (forced would be a more appropriate term, since taxation is rarely optional) to subsidize these individuals. The proponents appeal first to the “education” argument, which amounts to “Any expenditure is justified in the name of education.” This kind

of thinking has given us the world’s most expensive educational system, which has produced nearly the world’s worst results in terms of student performance. The second appeal is to business, where “Any expenditure is justified in the name of bringing business to Hanover County.” This is the same rationale as spending a fortune in taxpayer monies to finance airport improvements, as if somehow a pretty arrival lounge will bring business to Richmond. The problem with government financing is that those spending the money are not those earning it. The article says that Comcast and Verizon have already considered this proposition, and it is not economically feasible. That never

deters legislators and “activists” – they are all too willing to spend somebody else’s money in the pursuit of their agenda. Where one lives is a choice, and we lived just fine without an Internet in the past. It is a proven fact that students performed much better in their course work before the Internet, so one can hardly say that it is essential to their education. A good argument could be made for the opposite. Are they using the Internet to research topics, or are they looking for papers to plagiarize, or merely using Facebook and Twitter to keep up with their friends? Are we called to finance this activity? Living in the country is great; many people would see LETTERS, pg. 20 `

love the opportunity to do so. Like living in the city, there are advantages and disadvantages; one of which is the lack of cable. There is dial-up and satellite Internet access available however, so it is certainly possible to get online from nearly anywhere. Regardless, where you live is your choice, and there is no reason that I or anyone else should have to subsidize that choice.

As a lifelong resident of Hanover County, I take great pride in my community. We frequently take for granted our reasonable tax rates, excellent schools and superior law enforcement. However, none of this happens by accident. We have been well represented by a dedicated and responsible Board of Supervisors. I write today in support of our incumbent board, but, specifically, the South Anna supervisor, John Gordon. I have considered myself a Frederick R. Liewehr Republican since I became active Mechanicsville in Teen Age Republicans at Patrick

Henry High School. Occasionally, I have been convinced to support an independent candidate, and this is one such occasion. Although Mr. Gordon doesn’t wear his religion as a political banner, I know him to be a man of deep faith and strong convictions. He has been our representative for a number of years, and, while I have not always agreed with his positions, I have observed and respect the process by which he represents all of the people, not just special interest groups or individuals. I know it is difficult to render an unpopular decision; Mr. Gordon always follows the path see LETTERS, pg. 21 `

The Dance Company in Mechanicsville hosted two performers from the cast of “Wicked” for a dance Master class. Courtney and Ryan instructed more than 50 local dancers, sharing their love of theatre and dance. The cast donated their time and The Dance Company donated their studios to raise more than $1,300 for Broadway Cares, a national charity that raises money for needs within the Broadway artistic community. The extensive class of dancing was followed by a question and answer session. The students learned valuable dance lessons as well as life lessons such as doing your best and that “no” often means “not this time” but to keep trying. Each student donated $25 for the opportunity.

Springers take advantage of C-fed miscues Lee-Davis cannot maintain strong start against No. 9 Highland Springs By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local For about seven minutes on Friday night, Lee-Davis looked like it might be able to run with visiting Highland Springs. But after the Confederates were outfoxed by a fake punt that led to a second Springer touchdown at the end of the first quarter, followed by the quick conversion of a Lee-Davis fumble into a third Highland Springs touchdown in the first 15 seconds of the second quarter – momentum had established itself firmly in the favor

of the visiting Springers’ and they ran away with a 38-14 victory. Highland Springs (5-2, 31 Capital) scored on its first possession, as did Lee-Davis (4-3, 2-2). But instead of staying neck-and-neck, the miscues with the fake punt and fumble put the Confederates at a disadvantage they could not overcome. Highland Springs coach Loren Johnson felt the fumble recovery was the key moment of the game. “I think that was huge, “Johnson said. “I felt that was turning point of the game really. It gave us a chance to get the ball right back on the first down. I think that was a big momentum changer for us.” The win sets up Highland Springs – ranked No. 9 last

week in the Times-Dispatch poll – as one of the top teams in the intensely competitive Capital District. “They’re a talented team. They’ve gotten better,” said Lee-Davis coach Zac Hayden. “Last year, I think, they had some young kids. Their quarterback (D.J. Johnson) is now a sophomore. He looks like a football player.

Book highlights gridiron founding fathers Pomfrey’s latest book details Richmond’s football history By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Mentioning Richmond football teams with names such as Arrows, Saints, Mustangs, Rebels and Roadrunners might leave most people scratching their heads but they are part of a rich gridiron tradition in Central Virginia.

the foundation for sports memorabilia collector turned author Ron Pomfrey’s latest book. The long time Hanover County resident has followed up his popular 2008 release, “Baseball in Richmond: Images of baseball” with a gridiron cousin “Football in Richmond: Photographic Memories of the Old Days”. “I done the one on baseball three years ago and got a lot of response and it went over better than I ever expected,” Pomfrey said. “So a lot of the people that

The Mechanicsville Local October 26, 2011

I’ve talked with and who have talked with me have asked me about doing one (on football).” “Football in Richmond” is a fun and nostalgic look into the gridiron past. Through short bios, copies of antique game programs and photographs, many of which came from his own collection, Pomfrey brings the reader back into the early days for football in the Richmond area up through the 1970s. Two years in the making, Pomfrey felt the most difficult

task in creating the book was deciding what he did not have room to include. “Even though I have over 200 photos in here, there’s so many more that I could have added,” he said. “I could have had umpteen more but you have to draw the line somewhere and that’s what I did.” Pomfrey kicks off each chapter with a synopsis poem to detail what lies and ahead. The book begins with a look at the Richmond Arrows Club

team that spanned the 1920s through the 1940s. With names such as Mush De Lotto and Tom “Potsy” Jones, the Arrow set the tone for future generations of Richmond football fans. While doing research for the book, Pomfrey was most surprised by professional football’s presence in Richmond. From the late 30’s to the mid ‘60s Richmond became a regular stop on the NFL exhibition circuit and Pomfrey highlights see GRIDIRON, pg. 43 `

good offensive line. They’re well coached. They did a good job tonight.” Johnson ensured that the Springers’ passing game rather than their running game proved pivotal. He completed 10-of-11 passes for 174 yards and four touchdowns. Johnson’s favorite target was Stubblefield, who caught four passes for 77 yards, but his touchdown strikes were to Wright (12 yards), Kenny Oliver (4 yards), Ralph Stovall (26 yards), and Traquan Brown (42 yards). The Springers’ other touchdown was a 5-yard run by Roy Adams. In addition to kicking all the extra points, placekicker Oscar Portillo connected on a 30-yard field goal. Another key to the Springers’ victory was the physical play on both sides of the ball. “We just wanted to come out and play well, play physical,” Johnson said. “I think we did a good job of that this evening. … We wanted to dictate where the ball was going and how it was going.” Defensively, the Springers held Lee-Davis to 179 yards

some of the biggest games. From the likes of Arrow taking on the Washington Redskins in 1937 to visits from the Pittsburgh Pirates (Steelers) to the 1964 exhibition between the defending NFL champion Chicago Bears with player Mike Ditka and the Redskins at City Stadium. “Of most interest to me was probably the NFLers that came to town,” Pomfrey said. “Just researching all that information from 1937 and 38 when the Washington Redskins came to town to play. The fact that George Preston Marshall graduated from Randolph-Macon College here in Ashland. The

total offense – 115 on the ground and 64 in the air. The two Confederate touchdowns came on their first possession and their last – of the seven possessions in between, two ended in turnovers, four in punts, and one ended as time ran out in the first half.

building on their success as the Capital District season winds down. “You never know who’s going to come out of it in the thick of things,” Johnson said. “For the most part, we just want to play and put ourselves in a position to be in the thick of it toward the end of it.” The Confederates are more focused on improvement. “We’ve just got to keep getting better,” Hayden said. “We’ve just got three games left.

Of particular interest is a 1949 photo of singer Frank Sinatra acting as holder for Tobacco Bowl Queen Dorothy Kristen. Pomfrey moves on the college game, highlighting some of the top teams and players from 1899-1970s at the University of Richmond and Virginia Union. The chapter Field of Legends is packed with photos and bios from the likes of Willie Lainer, Ken Willard, Lee-Davis alum Jim Bunch. Once again, Pomfrey found it harder deciding who to leave out than who

to include. “There’s so many that could have been included there but again you have to draw the line,” he said. The book also touches on the high school game of football and is a true indication of how things have changed. Pomfrey highlights high school play from the day when John Marshall, Thomas Jefferson and Armstrong were the cream of the crop. When the original Glen Allen High School and Maggie Walker football teams competed for championships. “I went out myself to see some of the Armstrong contests,” he said. “That was truly a happening in Richmond when all of that occurred. I think in ‘68 they had 30,000 fans here

to see the Walker vs Armstrong games. Of course the John Marshall vs TJ games were history in themselves starting back in 1930-31. They had some awesome contests. That was the happening of the season.” Overall, Richmond football fans will enjoy the trip down memory lane or crossing the yard markers into the gridiron past for the first time. Pomfrey held his first book signing on Monday night and has two more scheduled in the weeks ahead. Pomfrey will be signing books at Gus’ Italian Café in Mechanicsville on Saturday, October 29 from 12-2 pm. The author will also be at Big Al’s Sports Bar & Grill on November 5, from 12-2 p.m.

Raiders rolling as season winds down www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online!

By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The Atlee boys volleyball team continued their roll through the Capital District last Tuesday night with an impressive 25-11, 25-13, 25-15 sweep of visiting Lee-Davis. With the win, the Raiders moved to 15-2 overall and 10-0 in district play with only three matches remaining. Lee-Davis dropped to 7-9 overall but more importantly a Thursday night loss to Highland Springs dropped the Confederates to fifth among district teams with a 5-7 record and in danger of not reaching tournament play. For the past few seasons, Atlee has produced a plethora of recognizable faces on the district’s top teams but this season they have become a cast of unknowns seizing the spotlight. “You figure in the last two years prior to this we’ve basically replaced both starting lineups,” said Assistant Coach Andy Crane who was temporarily filling in for Atlee head coach Nick Robinson. “It’s a testament to the seniors on this team that they’ve waited in the wings to play. They’ve shown

44

up for practice every day in those years and this year the rewards are paying off for them; a lot of different hitters; a lot of different passers.” But now, success from the group of virtual unknowns is no longer a surprise to Crane and the Atlee coaching staff. “I don’t think they’re surprising us now,” Crane said. “I think they surprised us early considering they didn’t have a lot of varsity experience. I think we expected that towards the end of the year we’d be a very solid, formidable team. I think where they surprised us is they were up and rolling from the beginning and have just continued to play better.” Though untested, the players themselves were not surprised by what they have been able to accomplish. “We had high expectations coming into the season,” said senior setter Billy Dishman. “A lot of people doubted our abilities but we believed in ourselves and knew what we could accomplish this season.” Atlee wasted little time going to work against the Confederates, running out to a 10-4 lead in game one on the strength Rashan Winters, Isaac Mackey and Austin Martin, who finished the night with eight kills and three blocks. Lee-Davis momentarily

stopped the bleeding with a kill and ace from Will Caudell but Atlee answered, widening the margin to 15-7 off two kills and a block from Mac Gray (8 kills, 3 blocks) and a reverse from Kevin Eye. Back to back kills from Matt Rohr gave Atlee a 17-8 lead and they went on to take game one 25-11. Game two proved to be somewhat tighter when Will Dowdy’s kill was followed by an Atlee hitting error to pull Lee-Davis within one, 8-7. But with the game close, the Raiders came alive to go on a 12-2 run leading to a 25-13 win. Throughout the evening, the character of the Atlee squad

appeared to be loose and carefree regardless of how close the games became. “We just have a lot of people who like to have fun around volleyball,” Dishman said. “It’s not as tense as it was in past years and this year we’re just having a lot more fun.” It appeared game three would end quickly as Atlee raced out to an 8-1 lead off three kills from Gray and a block by Gray and Andrew Price. But Lee-Davis was not about to throw in the towel. Led by Dowdy, the Confederates went on a 6-2 run to pull within three, 10-7. Atlee answered with another

run to take a 20-10 lead from where they closed out the match 25-15. Crane was especially pleased with the play of Dishman who finished the night with 28 assists and four aces. “He is the straw that stirs the proverbial drink,” Crane said.

“He’s what makes us what we are because he’s a calming influence and it’s just nice. He’s solid. He deserves a serious look as Player of the Year in the district.” In a Monday night matchup that took place after press deadsee VOLLEYBALL, pg. 45 `

R-MC romp secures 5th straight winning season Gridiron feat the first since 1965-70 Contributed report

Randolph-Macon racked up 504 yards of offense as the Yellow Jackets topped Guilford 45-7 in Old Dominon Athletic Conference football action Saturday afternoon in Greensboro, NC. The win propels R-MC to 6-2 on the season and 22 in ODAC play. The sixth win secures a fifth consecutive winning season for the Yellow Jackets, a feat that has not been accomplished by the program since 1965-1970. Guilford

The Yellow Jackets got off to a quick start after Brandon Harrison intercepted Guilford quarterback Zac Halbert on first drive of the game. R-MC then went 47 yards in seven plays, hitting pay dirt on a 24 yard scamper by Vance Hendren (Powhatan) on a trap up the middle.

R-MC volleyball reaches 20win mark for 4th straight year Contributed report

ST. DAVID’S, PA — The Randolph-Macon Volleyball team topped York College 30 at a tri-match at Eastern University on Saturday night. R-MC dropped the opening match of the day to the host Eagles. With the win over the Spartans, R-MC improved to 20-5 overall. It is the fourth straight year and the ninth time in the last 10 seasons the Yellow Jackets have won 20 or more matches. In the 25-17, 25-16, 2519 victory over York (13-14), juniors Mallory Carter (Cosby) and Jessica Sears combined for 24 kills with 13 and 11, respectively. Carter finishes the regular season with 360 kills which currently ranks third all-time in the R-MC single-season record books. She now stands just 26 shy of the program record, 386 set by Carrie Wells in 1998. Tori Puryear had eight kills, while Mallory James

chipped in with five. Baily Troia handed out 32 assists. Sears and Carter each had 14 digs in the win, while libero Marli Dabareiner had 13 and Troia added 11 stops.

Randolph-Macon held Guilford on its ensuing possession, got the ball back and drove 64 yards on 14 plays, taking 7:21 off the clock. The Jackets went up 14-0 on a three yard plunge by Drake Sanders. The Quakers appeared to be heading in for a score on its next possession but Guilford fumbled on the goal line and RMC recovered in the end zone. R-MC capitalized, driving into GC territory before getting a 31-yard field from Josh Storm to go up 17-0. Following another Guilford fumble, Naccarato hooked up with Sellers on a 50-yard touchdown pass to put the Jackets up 24-0 with just over two minutes

to go in the half. The Randolph-Macon defense was then able to get the ball back for its offense prior to halftime. Naccarato found Hendren on a screen pass for a 23-yard touchdown to send R-MC to the locker room with a 31-0 lead. The teams exchanged possessions to start the second half before R-MC took over and was able to drive 50 yards in just five plays, pushing its lead to 38-0 on a one yard run by Thaddeus Scruggs. The R-MC defense held GC to just 59 yards rushing and was led by Tom Solak (Mills Godwin) and Andrew Leonard, who both had eight tackles on

Hanover repeats as field hockey champs Hawks lock up second straight district title By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Only a year ago, the Hanover field hockey team was in search of its first Capital District title and first ever berth in Central Region play. Last Tuesday, the Hawks wrapped up their second consecutive achievement in both categories with a 3-1 win over rival Atlee. With a 2-1 win over Henrico the following night, Hanover finished the regular season 14-2 12-0 Capital District. Hanover has now gone through back-toback district schedules without a loss. Atlee defeated Henrico 3-2 in overtime on Thursday to finish the regular season 11-4, 10-2. Like last season, Atlee came to Hanover needing a win over the Hawks to maintain a tie atop the district standings. And also like last season, the game intensity had time to build as the match-up was postponed due to weather. Hanover head coach Sarah Bottorff felt her team was mentally sharp in anticipation of playing the game when originally scheduled October 12. But she was unsure how the additional week of waiting would affect her squad. “It’s just a lot to deal with,” she said. “We had Homecoming this past weekend so everybody’s all over the place and we just really just came back together tonight.” Bottorff ’s qualms were quick quieted as the Hawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first nine minutes of play. In the seventh minute, senior wing Erika Taylor swept in from the left side, took a

feed from Abby Bellows and slammed the ball into the box for a 1-0 Hanover lead. Two minutes later it was Taylor again, this time working clean-up action to regroup a save from Atlee keeper Hayley Smith and fire it back for a 2-0 advantage. Getting multiple scores early was a part of the Hanover game plan. “We knew that we couldn’t go deep into this game not having scored,” Bottorff said. “We had done that before with LeeDavis and that just made things a lot harder because it seems like you’ve got to climb to get out. But if you have (multiple scores) you can kind of sit back and you can make mistakes. Not that we try to make mistakes but they’re a little more forgivable when you’ve got a two goal lead.” On the other hand, one place Atlee coach Alyssa Farling did not want to see her Raiders was in a multiple goal deficit so quickly into the match. “That

never helps,” she said. But it only took Atlee three minutes to cut the margin in half. In the 13th minute of play, senior Emily Dietrick attacked from the right side of the goal, firing past Hawk keeper Bailey Lien to get the Raiders on the board. “Emily Dietrick is a great player and she does a great job for them,” Bottorff said. “That was a great shot. It was a great goal.” Yet for the most part the Hanover pressure defense did its job on Dietrick. “They marked her well during the game,” Farling said. “She certainly felt that pressure.” After the initial onslaught of scoring, the contest turned into a defensive battle as neither offense could find an effective attack. “That’s the one thing about these two teams; they know each other,” Farling said. “They play in a lot of leagues together so they know who to watch.”

Hanover edged ahead 3-1 midway through the second period when an attempt by Smith to defend the Atlee goal, took the legs out from under Hanover’s Juliana Moore in the box. Bellows set up for the one-on-one penalty stroke and nailed the goal past Smith to create the final margin. Bottorff felt there were not individual standouts for her Hawks but rather a complete team effort. “We really played as a team and they all stepped up in different ways,” she said. “This really is about working as a team. Everybody had to step up to beat Atlee. Atlee’s strong opponent so it took all of us to get that in there.” Likewise, Farling was pleased with the effort of her Raiders but noted that they need more speed. “I feel like we hesitated a little too much to the ball,” she said. “We were just a step behind sometimes. I feel like we didn’t get enough shots off on offense. That’s one area I feel

we were lacking today, is just getting up there and being able to get shots off, which is usually not an issue for us. But they played tough defense against us and they’re quick in the middle. They definitely challenge us in the middle. Odds are that as the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, the two teams will once again face each other in the Capital District Tournament this week. If so, Farling feels her Raiders have areas they need to improve upon. “I feel sometimes we’re chasing them more than we’re playing,” Farling said. “There were a couple of times there at the end that I felt we were chasing them around rather than playing our game. Just controlling the ball better, keep it on our stick, make good sharp passes. Because they do, they double team well and you’ve got to be able to get through that.” While not overlooking the Capital District, Bottorff has her thoughts on play beyond that tournament. “To be honest with you, I’m worried about the regional tournament because

we’re going there,” she said. “Our goal is to obviously make it out of the first round. We think we need to work on putting pressure in the circle and treat every chance as if it’s our last. As these games get more and more competitive we’re not going to get as many chances to score and we’ve been harping on that in practice for weeks now.” Atlee..................................... 1 0 — 1 Hanover............................... 2 1 — 3 A: Dietrick H: Taylor 2, Bellows Assists: Bellows Saves: Smith (A) 10; Lien (H) 4 Records: Atlee 7-2, 6-2 Capital; Hanover 12-2, 10-0

R-MC to host NFL legend Raymond Berry Contributed report

On Wednesday, November 16, Randolph-Macon College will host Pro Football Hall of Famer Raymond Berry at 7 p.m. in R-MC’s Crenshaw Gymnasium. Berry was a member of the Johnny Unitas led 1958 Baltimore Colts team that won the NFL Championship. His visit is sponsored by the BB&T Moral Foundations of Capitalism Program and the RMC Ethics Program. This event is free and open to the public. General admission tickets must be reserved and are available at http:// rmc.informz.net/rmc/event. asp?eid=2736 Berry will present Preparing for Life: Ethics for the Greatest Game Ever! and will describe the relationships and professional preparation that led to his success on and off the football field. The public is also invited to an earlier discussion at 11:30 a.m. where Berry will discuss the importance of faith and ethics. “I’m looking forward to meeting members of the Randolph-Macon and surrounding communities,” said Berry, “and sharing those moments that inspired me during challenging times in my life. I think success, ethics and faith go hand-in-hand and I feel privileged to have opportunities to spread that message with all people of all ages.” Raymond Berry was selected by the Baltimore Colts in the 1954 NFL draft. He played 13-years as a wide receiver, leading the league three times in receptions and catching a then-record 631 passes for 9,275 yards and 68 touchdowns. Berry was widely known for his attention to detail and preparation. He only fumbled once in 13 years and was selected to play in six Pro

Bowl games. Greatest Game Ever Played One of Berry’s most notable performances was in the 1958 NFL Championship Game, known as “The Greatest Game Ever Played.” He set a thenrecord with 12 catches for 178 yards and a touchdown. During what was called the Colts’ life-or-death, last minute drive, Berry caught three consecutive passes for 62 yards to set up the Colts tying field goal at the end of regulation. The historic game, against the New York Giants, marked the first time that a NFL playoff game went into overtime. Berry helped lead the Colts to victory with two receptions for 33 yards. Historians note that this game changed the popularity of the NFL and propelled it to become the favorite sport to watch in the United States. NFL Coaching Career Berry ended his playing career in 1967 and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1973. He returned to the NFL as a receivers’ coach for the New England Patriots from 19781981 and was rehired in 1984 as head coach of the struggling team. The next season, the Patriots recorded an 11-5 record and made the playoffs as a wildcard team. They went on to become the first team in NFL history ever to advance to the Super Bowl by winning three playoff games on the road. Unfortunately, they were defeated in the 1985 Super Bowl game by the Chicago Bears. In 1986, the Patriots made it to the playoffs again, but were defeated in the first round. Berry was released as head coach of the Patriots in 1989. His overall coaching record is 48 wins and 39 losses, and 3-2 in the playoffs.
