STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

Tornado confirmed No serious injuries reported; trees uprooted By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com The freight train-like sound signaled a warning to several neighborhoods in Mechanicsville last Wednesday, and heralded the arrival of a tornado. On Thursday, Col. David R. Hines, Hanover County sheriff, said, “Hanover found itself in the center of the storm yesterday evening; and in true Hanover tradition, neighbors came out to help

neighbors and the full public safety resources of the county were available to respond to the area. We are all truly blessed that no one was seriously injured.” The only injury, which was not serious, reported by the Sheriff ’s Office was a woman struck by a tree branch as she exited her vehicle. Capt. Michael J. Trice said more than 70 structures received damage. At least two houses see TORNADO, pg. 14 `

Bill Bolling brought a positive message of economic development to a breakfast meeting of the Greater Richmond Chamber’s InVision Hanover at Randolph-Macon College on Thursday.

the second-in-command position, Bolling also is the state’s chief Jobs Creation Officer and is charged with coordinating the state’s vast economic development and workforce enhancement resources. “Creating jobs and getting the economy moving again is the number one priority of our administration. It is not just a priority of the administration, it is the priority for this administration,” Bolling said. He told the Hanover

Hanover man arrested on Robbery charges On October 27, 2010, at approximately 2:05 p.m., Larry D. Hooper and Deberoe Walls, Jr. entered the Bank of America, located at 8001 Patterson Avenue armed with an assault weapon and a handgun. After

forcing everyone to the floor, the subjects committed the robbery taking an undisclosed amount of currency. Hooper and Walls fled the scene in one vehicle, but later separated. Shortly thereafter, Hooper

was spotted by Investigator Howdyshell traveling on Patterson Avenue. A traffic stop was executed using multiple patrol units and Hooper was taken into custody without incident. Information and evi-

dence gathered at the scene not only implicated Walls, who was later taken into custody, but also linked them both to the takeover style robbery occurring at the Village Bank on October 8, 2010.

Crisis, Fuel Assistance available Low-income residents may be eligible; applications now being accepted Low-income Hanoverians who have heating emergencies might be eligible for Crisis Assistance, a federal program administered by the Hanover County Department of Social Services. Applications are now being accepted. Crisis Assistance can help eligible households when Fuel Assistance or other resources cannot meet the need. In order to receive Crisis Assistance, a heating emergency must exist and certain income and citizenship criteria must be met. A “heating emergency” could include lack of heat, imminent cut-off of utilities and inoperable or unsafe heating equipment. Through March 15, Crisis Assistance can provide supplemental assistance through

approved vendors to repair or replace heating equipment. It also can pay a “one-time only” security deposit for heating. Beginning Jan. 3, 2011 Crisis Assistance applications will be accepted to buy home heating fuel for customers with low or depleted heating fuel sources, including electricity, oil, natural gas, propane, kerosene, wood, coal, etc. Last fall and winter, the Hanover Department of Social Services assisted 136 customers with their heating emergencies through the Crisis Assistance program. The total amount of crisis assistance provided was $88,681.01. Income eligibility for Crisis Assistance is based upon the total number of people in your household. Maximum monthly income limits are: ✓ 1 person- $1,174

✓ 2 persons- $1,579 ✓ 3 persons- $1,984 If the only source of household income is Social Security Disability, the income limits do not apply. For more information on household size and limits or to request an application, call Hanover Social Services at 365-4103. Applications for the crisis assistance program will be accepted through March 15, 2011. Energy Share through Dominion Virginia Power also is managed locally by Hanover Social Services. Eligible households may receive help paying for the applicable source of heat (electricity, gas, oil, wood or kerosene). Call 365-4103 for information on requirements and to determine if funding is available.

Team Sklar wages war against cancer Team Sklar is waging a war against cancer, one step at a time, by using their running skills to achieve victory. Led by Randy Sklar, president of Sklar Technology Partners, this group finds a nonprofit agency or person fighting this ravaging disease and then

collects donations for them by running in a marathon. The fight began last year when Randy Sklar’s friend, Robert Mann, discovered his wife Marcy had been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. Hearing such a diagnosis was devastating and far-reaching,

affecting not only their two children (then ages 2 and 8 months), but promising to place a crushing financial burden on the family as well. Randy Sklar organized a team that would receive donations on behalf of Marcy Mann, for running in the Richmond

McDonald’s Half Marathon. Their campaign proved successful and a check for several thousand dollars was presented to the Mann family from the Sklar Technology Team. At 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, near 7th and Broad see SKLAR, pg. 19 `

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

Tornado was too close for comfort Sometimes you just really wish the meteorologists weren’t right. Well, as we all know, they were last Wednesday: A tornado rolled through several Mechanicsville neighborhoods. Fortunately, there were no significant injuries reported in Hanover County. Unfortunately, significant damage was done to some of our neighbors’ homes and properties. TV news reports kept updating the movement of a storm and the threat of a tornado. Yes, the meteorologists were right: A tornado did arrive. Officials with the National Weather Service confirmed the status on Thursday. The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office and Fire/EMS personnel set up a command post at the VFW Post on Cold Harbor Road. They were situated near some of the worst-hit areas, where a few houses and an apartment complex received structural damage. Co-worker Cindy Grant just happened to be at her sister’s house in Travellers Run when the tornado approached. She confirmed the oftrepeated comment of “It sounded like a freight train.” Thanks to the communication of Capt. Michael J. Trice of the Sheriff ’s Office, some updates were shared on our Facebook page. And residents posted photos they were taking of the tornado and its impact that evening. This is just another example of the influence of social media. Driving around Mechanicsville Thursday morning was an eye-opening experience, especially after seeing the camper on its side in a yard in Travellers Run. Trees were downed, even uprooted, along Cold Harbor Road. A common sight as repairs began was coverings on roofs, a sign of the force of those winds. Another excursion on Saturday was heart-warming though, seeing neighbors helping neighbors. There seemed to be a sense of camaraderie in the aftermath of a destructive weather event. But, that’s the thing about neighbors: It’s all about being there in times of need. Melody Kinser

about the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God and also that they are “endowed by their Creator,” (a phase conveniently dropped by Barack Obama in a recent speech.) Each day, while the Founders were meeting to discuss aspects of this new form of government, the delegation first prayed for guidance. Most of the 56 signers were members of an organized religion, Christian and Jew. Thomas Jefferson was believed to be an agnostic, yet he carried a Bible and was known to turn to prayer. The Ten Commandments are evident in the Bill of Rights. If you read the biography of Samuel Adams you will see how strong that faith the Founders had in a Supreme Being guided them while they labored to present the greatest document ever written which ensured man’s unalienable rights so long as the nation may stand.

Obama cartoon questioned I was sad, angry and disappointed to see the cartoon you carried in the Oct. 20 issue of The Local. You have carried other questionable cartoons in the past, but this one went beyond all bounds of good journalism, good taste and decency. The cartoon portrayed President Obama holding several communist books . . .

Complete Works of Karl Marx, Mao, Castro. Our president is not a Communist and you know that. To portray him as such is a disgrace. In addition, I think the cartoon is racist . . . you have so distorted the president’s features. I know you don’t create your own cartoons; you buy syndicated ones. But you do have a choice of which cartoons to use. I would ask you in the future to use better judgment and to apply the same journalistic ethics and standards to selection of cartoons that you apply to articles in the paper. After all, a cartoon says as much as a thousand word article. As a community newspaper, The Local needs to be held accountable to a basic level of journalistic standards, which it did not meet in this case. Toni Radler Mechanicsville

Tucker family says thanks On behalf of the Tucker family, I would like to express our gratitude to the Mechanicsville community for your support and prayers regarding my mom’s passing Mrs. Joyce Tucker. Special thanks to Pole Green and Gethsemane Churches, also to the athletic families of Hanover, Atlee and especially Lee-Davis High Schools. She loved local sports — not just the games she loved — she adored the kids who competed on the field and court.

study acting, singing and dance. Clinton is the son of Clint and Deborah Roane of Mechanicsville. “The Scottsboro Boys” opened on Oct. 7 for previews at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City and opens officially on Oct. 31. For ticket information, visit www. ScottsboroMusical.com.

Mama loved the Lee-Davis boys’ volleyball team and Coach Smith and I would like to send out a heartfelt thanks for kind words and support during this difficult time. High school baseball will again start this spring and there will be a void where she sat on the front row, cheering on her boys as my dad heckled the umpires. She will be missed by family and friends. Thanks again for your thoughts and prayers. I will miss her every day. Tommy Tucker Jr. On behalf of the Tucker family Mechanicsville

Sprawl brings economic pain When I read that the county is considering another subdivision on Atlee Station Road (or for that matter any road), I wonder why? I understand the issues with traffic and so on. To me, though, there is a more fundamental reason to slow down development. Drive through practically any existing subdivision and see how many homes are for sale. See also the many recent subdivisions that have available lots. Why add even more inventory and depress house prices in Hanover County further? Why not wait a few years until the inventory works off and help county residents recover from these economic times? Jeff Miller Mechanicsville

Responding to other writers In response to the letters from Mr. [Emmet] Dene and others in recent past issues: Thanks for transcribing (and creatively abridging) the Preamble and Article I of the Constitution. You needn’t have done so; I keep a copy on my desk at all times, and the bookcase behind it is full of books on the founders, the times they lived in and collections of their writings. I’ve read every one of them, most several times. I don’t turn to goons like Glenn Beck and morons like Sarah Palin for my history — I get it from actual historians. But to Mr. Dene’s point: You are right that the Constitution does not “compel” the government to provide healthcare to all. The Constitution “compels” very little in the way of what services the government may, should or must provide; for example, it does not compel the creation and forever-more maintenance of a standing army. It does provide for the possibility of one, by the call in the Preamble to provide for the common defense . . . but that provision could have been satisfied by simply having the government providing a working musket to every citizen (don’t laugh, as that’s exactly what some countries do). Someone — actually, many someones over a considerable period of time — worked out what defines “provide for the common defense,” that definition has changed dramatically see LETTERS, pg. 13 `

AL Post 175 breaks ground on new building Mechanicsville American Legion Post 175 broke ground on Oct. 16 on its new building on Bell Creek Road. Community, local and state leaders joined a large crowd of veterans and their families in celebrating the event. James E. Kickler, commander, said plans are being made to hold a dedication, possibly in the fall of 2011, when the building is completed. He also said the efforts of 16 World War I and World War II veterans led to the organization of the Post in 1945.

The Post’s first home was a house across the street from the Mechanicsville Recreation Building. The Post later moved to a house in front of a motel on U.S. 301 next to the Timberlake Realty Co. Later, the Post moved to the back room of Johnson’s Grocery Store, located directly across the street from the Post that was located on Atlee Road. After being in the Atlee Road location for more than 30 years, the Post agreed by vote to sell the property and move

Participating in the ground-breaking ceremony were, from left, Sen. Ryan T. McDougle, R-4; Col. David R. Hines, Hanover County sheriff; Del. Christopher K. Peace, R-97; Elton J. Wade Sr., Cold Harbor District, Hanover County Board of Supervisors; Del. John A. Cox, R-55; and Dave Chapman, American Legion district commander.

again. Plans were made to construct a 10,000-square-foot building on Bell Creek Road. The new building will provide additional space to accommodate the increasing needs of the veterans, as well as service

to the community. Kickler noted the Post’s community involvements, including sponsoring the Post 175 baseball team, the American Legion oratorical contest in Hanover County’s high schools, the American Legion Boys’ and

Girls’ State program, JROTC and Boy Scouts. The Post also presents yearly Law Enforcement and EMS awards. From that first group of 16 veterans in 1945, the Post has grown to more than 260 mem-

bers. Veterans interested in becoming a member can call Kickler at 814-4597 or Sean Davis at 730-5648. The Post also can be contacted by mail at P.O. Box 3309, Mechanicsville VA 23116.

since the start of the 19th century, and even today it continues to change with each administration, each advance in military technology, every ebb and flow of adversaries arrayed against us. Lots of factors play into those adjustments, including what the people are willing to tolerate and what they consider moral. So it goes with the Preamble’s clauses to establish justice and promote the general welfare. Over time we the people have determined what defines justice and the general wel-

fare, and among other things that includes basic protection for the elderly against poverty and illness (social security and Medicare.) It also already means healthcare for all, because the law requires hospitals to provide care to all regardless of their ability to pay. So we already have government-mandated healthcare — we just have it in the most-expensive and least-efficient fashion possible. Civilized and moral behavior towards our fellow man dictates that do better than we have done — the other civilized nations of the world know this, which is why we are the only nation in the civilized world that does not provide healthcare

to all. You can wrap all the conservative nonsense around it that you want, you can paint it with meaningless buzzwords like “socialist” if you like, but in the end, if the Preamble’s call to promote the general welfare does not include the most basic things like healthcare, calling ourselves a civilized and moral society is the height of hypocrisy. Moreover, doing so does not mean more individual expense. Money is fungible; it makes no real difference whether you pay some number of dollars to a private insurance company or the same number of dollars to a government agency (other than

the government agency won’t waste a substantial part of each dollar on ridiculously excessive executive salaries, marketing, “corporate image management”, legal battles and other stupidity.) If it offends your sensibilities that government can do something better and more evenhanded than can a for-profit business, I say: Put on your big boy pants and deal with it. You may be giving up your most cherished freedom — life itself — by leaving yourself to a profit-driven system that cares nothing about you, only about the money you bring in.

were left uninhabitable after trees or large branches crashed into them. Those homes are located on Aquarius Loop and Senn Way. Trees also were uprooted along Cold Harbor Road. Little Sorrel Drive in Travellers Run fell victim to the tornado. A camper landed in the yard of Beth Livermore. According to Trice, the camper was owned by Randy Agee. Fencing in the neighborhood was downed by the winds. Confirmation of the single, low-intensity tornado came on Thursday from the National Weather Service. According to the Friday edition of the Richmond TimesDispatch, the tornado “traversed a path from just east of The Diamond in North Richmond into central Henrico County and the Cold Harbor

area of Hanover County late Wednesday afternoon, with wind speeds of 80 to 90 mph.” NWS officials from the Wakefield office surveyed the damage on Thursday and determined the tornado’s path extended 11.5 miles in an eastnortheastward direction from about 5 to 5:20 p.m. The Times-Dispatch reported that the tornado’s rate of strength was rated an EF0 to an EF1, the first and second lowest ratings on a scale of 0 to 5. The Sheriff ’s Office and Hanover Fire/EMS had set up a command center at the VFW Post 9808 on Cold Harbor Road Wednesday evening. To help homeowners avoid becoming the victim of contractor scams, Hines offered the following tips: ❍ Work only with trusted local contractors. ❍ Check references. ❍ Get all agreements in writing.

Melody Kinser/The Local

A large tree on Cold Harbor Road was uprooted during the tornado.

❍ Ask for a written guarantee on work to be done. ❍ Require contractor to have work inspected by a qualified and independent inspector before final payment. ❍ Be sure all agreements include a complete description of the work, materials, starting and completion dates, and total cost. ❍ Avoid paying large sums in advance.

❍ Don’t be pressured into signing any document. ❍ Ensure that electrical, plumbing, and structural contractors are licensed. ❍ Don’t pay individuals to help fill out forms. ❍ Check with local, state or federal officials on any offer by a third party that promises to speed up government or insurance company response time. ❍ Call the Virginia Better

Hanover Fire/EMS, said. “We were very fortunate not to have significant injuries, sheltering needs, or more damage.” However, I am confident that if the storm had been more widespread or severe, the resources were in place to respond,” he added.

great opportunity to compete. We have a great story to tell and now we have more tools to close deals,” Bolling said. The General Assembly approved $57 million to enhance economic development efforts, allowing the state to open trade offices in the United Kingdom, China and India for the first time. Bolling said most of the jobs this year created are private sector. While seeking new businesses to relocate in the state, the efforts are maintaining a close watch on existing businesses. “We’re on the right track in Virginia,” Bolling said. “We’re doing what we can do to make wise choices and smart decisions in our state, but it’s certainly not a victory lap.” He said the state’s efforts are contrasted by a national environment that some interpret as anti business. “We’re not getting a lot of help out of the federal government. In fact, most of the stuff coming out of Washington today is anti-business,” the lieutenant governor said. “The economy will never do better until Washington stops pursing anti-business and starts pursing pro-business policies,” Bolling said. He said the recent state efforts are setting the environment for a real recovery of the Virginia economy. “Virginia’s economy is poised to skyrocket if we could just get a little help from the federal government,” Bolling said.

meeting with business and community leaders seeking input on improving the economic climate in Virginia. “It’s the most important issue facing Virginia today,” Bolling said. The McDonnell administration entered office facing the worst recession in 60 years, a seven percent plus unemployment rate and more than 300,000 Virginians unemployed. “We’ve made some progress at turning these numbers around, but they are still way too high,” Bolling said The lieutenant governor is assisted in his efforts by the Governor’s Commission on Economic Development and Job Creation, a 64-member panel consisting of business leaders from across the state. Bolling said he is employing an aggressive approach to economic development, including a jobs and opportunity agenda and business recruitment and development efforts. Since Bolling’s appointment and the creation of the commission, more than 190 deals have closed in the state, creating almost 11,000 jobs and representing a $1.7 billion capital investment. Since February, Bolling said the state has added 55,000 new jobs, the second highest job creation rate in the country. The state’s 6.8 percent unemployment rate is the third lowest east of the Mississippi River. “We think Virginia has a

Hannah Purvis recently completed her service project as a student at Master Cho’s World Class Tae Kwon Do in Glen Allen. Her service project involved selling lemonade and yielded a $113 donation for Hanover Humane Society. Following a tour of Hanover Humane’s facility at 12190 Washington Highway in Ashland, Hannah presented Hanover Humane with the check. Her donation will be used by Hanover Humane to provide food, veterinary care, supplies, etc., for the animals in Hanover Humane’s adoptions programs until they find a forever home.

Adopt a Senior Pet Month November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month, and I encourage people who are ready to add an animal to their family to consider some of the many benefits of adopting an “oldie but goodie” from their local animal shelter: ❍ What you see is what you get. There are no mysteries about a senior animal’s adult size, personality, energy level, or grooming needs. ❍ They know the ropes. Experienced animals are often pros at basic skills such as walking on a leash and sharpening their claws on a scratching post instead of on your couch. ❍ Less mess. Most adult animals are housetrained and well past the destructive chewing phase. ❍ They have social graces. Boisterous puppies and kittens sometimes don’t know their limits and may annoy the dogs and cats who are already part of the family. Older animals learn and respect their boundaries more quickly. ❍ A lifetime of love. Many people who have adopted older animals find that they are especially affectionate and eager to bond with the person who rescued them. To learn more about adopting, visit www.PETA.org.

COUNTING HOLIDAY BLESSINGS Not everyone finds the holidays to be cheery affairs, particularly those confronted by loss. While no one is going to propose that memories be set aside, it certainly helps to focus on the blessings one currently enjoys. Doing so is often best achieved by looking at the holiday season through the eyes of children. Grandparents can renew their perspective on the season when they introduce grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and youngsters in their social network to traditions that celebrate the values that family and friends hold so dear. By taking even small proactive steps (such as baking a cake to be shared) that accentuate the positive and bring themselves into the fold, seniors can find good reason to celebrate. If you suffer from loneliness or holiday depression, try not to be alone for the holidays. Perhaps you can volunteer your time to help the needy at a food line or soup kitchen. There are many valuable programs to become involved with well before the holidays, and your involvement may go far in mitigating your feelings of loneliness. A second option might be to attend holiday celebrations, such as candlelight church services or musical galas. At HERITAGE GREEN ASSISTED LIVING, we feature a variety of social activities that include wellness and fitness programs, guest lectures, cooking classes, movies, and gardening. There’s never a moment to be lonely! For more information, please call 804-746-7370 or visit us at 7080 Brooks Farm Road. The love and care you deserve. Presented by

Last week Hanover Fire/ EMS members made an exception to their standard uniform policy. Emergency responders wore a striking shade of hot pink in an effort to benefit the American Cancer Society (ACS) and its Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign. Lt. Chris Anderson, Chief Fred Crosby and the Hanover Firefighters Association got behind this activity to aid an important charitable cause. Personnel influenced the sale of more than 500 tshirts to raise awareness — and funds — for the ACS. Next year, the department will be seeking to sell more. Looking snappy in their hot pink shirts are, from left, firefighter/medics Kevin Morris, Wade Hampton and Lt. Chip Hartle.

VFW to sell MITCHELL WINDOWS & SIDING Craftsmen’s Christmas Classic poppies Nov. 6 Arts & Crafts Festival 31st Annual

# Maintenance Free #

The story of the poppy begins in the World War I battlefields of Belgium, where the poppies grew wild amid the ravaged landscape. The overturned soils of battle enabled the poppy seeds to be covered, allowing them to grow and serve as a reminder of the bloodshed during that and future wars. The poppy movement was inspired by the poem, “In Flanders Fields,” written by Lt. Col. John McCrae of the Canadian forces in 1915 before the United States entered WWI. Selling replicas of the original Flanders’ poppy originated in some of the allied countries immediately after the Armistice. Moina Michael of Georgia is credited as the founder of the Memorial Poppy in the U.S. For more information, call Elliott at 746-5000.

Monsanto Fund helping farmers As the leaves on trees begin to change and evenings become shorter, farmers throughout Virginia are busy harvesting crops. While they are hard at work in the fields, farmers also are working hard to make a positive impact in their communities by participating in Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities. This program offers farmers in more than 1,200 counties across 38 states, the unique opportunity to designate a $2,500 donation to their favorite local nonprofit organization. “We nominated 4-H simply because that is an organization that we are involved with ourselves,” Hanover County farmer Joel Stanley said. “Our county’s 4-H has been mainly equinefocused but is looking to start a Dairy Club, which we feel is important since we operate a dairy farm. Our hope is that the funds would assist in making that new club a reality.” The program benefits nonprofit community groups such as agriculture youth organizations, schools and other civic groups in an effort to strengthen rural America. In Virginia, $35,000 is expected to be donated in 14 counties. Whatever the need, $2,500 could mean saving a school program facing budget cuts or helping a volunteer fire department purchase new safety equipment. “We created the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program to show the Monsanto Fund’s appreciation for all the American farmer does,” Deborah Patterson, Monsanto Fund president, said. “Just one donation can touch the lives of so many people in the community. The positive impact

reaches the organization, the farmer and, most importantly, the community as a whole.” Farmers can apply online at www.growcommunities.com or by calling 1-877-267-3332. Farmers, age 21 and over, who are actively engaged in farming a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton, or 40 acres of open field vegetables, or at least 10 acres of tomatoes, peppers and/or cucumbers grown in protected culture, are eligible. The application period runs through Dec. 31. The program is open to qualifying farmers, and no purchase is necessary in order to enter or win. In Virginia, one winner will be drawn from each of the state’s 14 participating counties. Monsanto Fund will announce winning farmers and recipient organizations in February 2011. In addition to Hanover, eligible counties in Virginia include Accomack, Caroline, Chesapeake City, Ess-ex, Isle of Wight, King William, Northampton, Northum-berland, Rockingham, Southampton, Suffolk City, Sussex and Westmoreland. Visit www.growcommunities.com to sign up and to learn more about the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program. The program is part of a broad commitment by Monsanto Fund to invest in farm communities, in order to highlight the important contributions farmers make every day. To obtain a copy of the official rules for this program, visit www.growcommunities.com or send a written request to Eileen Jensen, 914 Spruce St., St. Louis, MO 63102.

In April 2011, the Orchestra is scheduled to perform for hundreds or resort guests to help celebrate Disney Magic Music Days. The students who will represent Hanover County at the national event have been working since last year to raise the thousands of dollars needed to transport them to Orlando, Fla.

The Orchestra consistently receives â&#x20AC;&#x153;Superiorâ&#x20AC;? ratings at District 1 festivals, and the students have distinguished themselves as members of All County, Regional and State orchestras.

No. 2 Hanover comes up big in big game

Cheatham, Rogers lead way in turning back No. 7 Atlee By Arthur Utley Media General News Services Big crowd, big plays, big excitement. The Atlee-Hanover football game was everything it was supposed to be and more. Hanover, ranked No. 2 in The Times-Dispatch Top 10 and No. 8 in The Associated Press Group AAA state poll, defeated Atlee, ranked No. 7 in the T-D

Top 10, 39-27 Friday night at Hanover. The edge-of-your-seat thrill ride for the players, coaches and 6,000 spectators started on the first possession and didn’t end until Hanover’s Xavier Crocker intercepted a Drew Ferguson pass at the goal line with seconds remaining. “It was awesome. It was exhilarating,” Hanover defensive back Shreve Rohle said. Hanover (4-0 Capital, 8-0) scored less than three minutes into the game on a 2-yard run by Deane Cheatham, who covered 53 of the 65 yards on two

plays, a dump-off pass from Sam Rogers that went for 29 yards and a 24-yard run. The extra point try was blocked. Atlee wasted no time responding. The Raiders went 66 yards in five plays. Ferguson connected on a 30-yard TD pass to R.J. Price. Joseph Pulisic kicked the extra point to give Atlee its only lead. Hanover scored the next 20 points on a 31-yard pass from Rogers to Tre Facison, a 5-yard run by Rogers and an 18-yard pass from Rogers to Marzae Brooks for a 26-7 lead fewer than two minutes into the sec-

ond quarter. Atlee could have folded, but Josh Doggett kept on making tackles (he was in on 27), and Ferguson capped a 71-yard drive on a 3-yard run 33 seconds before halftime to make the score 26-13. The Raiders (2-2, 6-2) got the ball to start the second half. Trevor Elie was tackled for a 3yard loss, then Ferguson found Price again for 64 yards and a TD. The extra point made it 26-20.

“This group doesn’t quit,” Atlee coach Roscoe Johnson said. Cheatham scored twice more to put Hanover in the clear, but Ferguson scored again with 1:19 left, and the Raiders pulled off a successful onside kick. Crocker’s interception and the clock finally stopped the Raiders. “That no-huddle offense wears out a defense,” Rohle said. Ferguson, a 6 - 1, 195-pound

senior, contributed 417 yards of offense. He threw the two TD passes but also had the two interceptions. The Raiders fumbled twice. “They did a great job,” Hanover coach Josh Just. “They kept us guessing, but we made big plays when we had to. I’ll take the win.” Said Cheatham, “Drew played out of his mind. I didn’t expect that good of an offense. I see HANOVER, pg. 40 `

C-feds conquer second ranked team in a row Lee-Davis downs No. 9 Henrico 22-7 By Dave Lawrence For The Mechanicsville Local When No. 2 Hanover played at Lee-Davis a couple of weeks ago, Hanover coach Josh Just said the Confederates were the toughest team his Hawks had faced. Friday night, when No. 9 Henrico visited Lee-Davis for a Capital District matchup, the Warriors found out just how tough the Confederates could be. Henrico’s offense was checked most of the night, while Lee-Davis, with the help of running back Emmit Atkins’ 159 yards, mounted a sustained ground attack to checkmate the Warriors, 22-6. In addition to scoring one touchdown, Atkins accounted for most of Lee-Davis’ offensive gains. Quarterback Israel Vaughan and running back Caleb Wyatt each contributed 29 yards and one touchdown apiece for the Confederates (3-2 Capital, 4-4). “Every single time my line

was executing every single play and getting their blocks, allowing me to get in spaces and make my moves, pickup what I could get and see what I could do,” Atkins said. “Every time I see that hole open, it’s like aaaauugh! It just feels good when everybody does their job.” Henrico, on the other hand, could not get any traction on the ground, managing only 24 yards rushing against the strong Lee-Davis defense. Struggles with their ground game forced the Warriors to go to the air, where both starting quarterback Malcolm Bell and backup quarterback Treyvon Robinson struggled. Bell completed 6-of19 passes for 87 yards and two interceptions. Robinson went 1-for-2 for one yard and one interception. Lee-Davis lineman Calvin Davis accounted for a large part of Henrico’s offensive troubles. He had three sacks and four tackles overall. His sacks resulted in losses of 25 yards total for the Warriors. “I felt like I did my job,” Davis said. But he did not take all the credit. “It’s not just me

getting to the quarterback. It’s our cornerbacks and our safeties and linebackers covering up their men for us, giving the D-line time to get sacks.” Both teams struggled from the start. After forcing the Warriors to punt on their first possession of the game, the Confederates marched 45 yards to score on Israel Vaughan’s 3yard run. The 2-point conversion run attempt failed, however. After one promising drive early in the second quarter ended in an interception by Atkins – who played both ways for Lee-Davis – the Warriors (23, 5-3) finally got on the board with a 87-yard drive at the end of the half. Bell scored on a on a 2-yard run and Ricky Segers’ kick gave Henrico a 7-6 lead. It was a familiar score for

thought we would shut it down. We thought we could do whatever we wanted to on offense, and we did. It was an awesome game and a great atmosphere.” Cheatham rushed for 159 yards and surpassed the 1,000yard mark for the season. Rogers rushed for 112 and passed for 147 more. Cheatham’s and Rogers’ 418 yards of offense nipped Ferguson by a yard. Cole Stout and Cole Woody combined for 27 tackles and two sacks for Atlee. “We knew they were capable of coming back,” Rohle said. “We had to bounce back and make big plays. We did, and we won the ballgame.” This week Atlee plays host to Highland Springs while Hanover hosts Henrico.

the Confederates, having trailed both Hanover and Highland Springs 7-6 in the second half. But the Henrico momentum did not last long past halftime. After a Lee-Davis interception, the Warriors had the ball at the Confederate 16, but could not score. “We got momentum at the half in that [scoring] drive,” said Henrico coach Roger Brookes. “We came out in the third quarter and stopped them, tipped a pass and got a pick and got a short field. We didn’t convert. I just think that made the difference.” While the Warriors swooned, the Confederates kept grinding away and regained the lead on Atkins’ 1-yard run at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Chance Stone added a two-point conversion run to

give Lee-Davis a 14-7 lead. Midway through the fourth, they added two more points on a safety when Brandon Woody blocked a Seger punt out of the end zone. The Confederates’ final score came on the drive on Wyatt’s 1yard run. “The kids played really hard there at the end and they came through,” said Lee-Davis coach Zac Hayden. “We’re proud of them. The seniors, this is the last time they’ll play on this field. We talked about that all week. We talked about that before the game. “At halftime, we said, ‘Look guys, this is the last time you’re playing on this field. You’ve all been playing together for a long time. Let’s go out a winner.’ ” This Friday Lee-Davis travels to James River for a non-dis-

trict matchup. They then close out the regular season at Atlee on Nov. 12.

Former Hawk enjoying diverse life as a Hoo Connor Miles: scholar, social worker, cheerleader, singer and football player By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Connor Miles is the kind of person that in many ways defies characterization. A scholar, social worker, entertainer and all-around athlete, there is no single way to describe the former Hanover High School standout. As a Hawk, Connor, the son of Michael and Donna Miles, lettered in football, baseball and cross country but he also competed on the Hanover High School Academic team. So it’s not so surprising that this year Miles added another title to his ever-expanding repertoire; major college football player at the University of Virginia. Yet, Miles did not take the standard route to a Division I football team, making the squad as a graduate student rather than an incoming freshman. Last spring Miles received a bachelor’s degree in biology; likewise no standard fare for

any athlete. But as if a difficult academic path was not a diverse enough route for Miles, he took on roles as singer and cheerleader prior to ever trying out for football. For three years, Miles sang with the Hullabahoos, an a capella group at UVa and also spent two years on the Cavalier’s coed cheering squad. “I had an open mind about

everything and my parents raised me the right way,” Miles said. “I was big on singing in high school and it’s something I do every day and the a capella Hullabahoos was a lot of fun. “Then cheering came up and they needed a guy,” he said, thinking of it as a means to stay in shape. “You know it was something athletic that would keep me going. It’s not as easy

as one would think lifting a girl in the air and making sure she stays there the entire time.” Then there was the continued charity work from when he was a youngster. When he wasn’t competing, Miles was lending a helping hand with Special Love, an organization for children and siblings of children with cancer. “My sister was diagnosed with cancer when she was 12 years old,” said Miles who was six at the time. “I saw a great opportunity for me to give back to something that’s meaningful for me. “I’m lucky to still have my sister and a lot of people aren’t,” Miles said. “Those kids need somebody with a level head on them to support them and kind of show them directions sometimes.” But last year with work nearly completed on his bachelor’s degree, Miles decided to take a chance to make the Virginia football team as a walk-on. “I had a couple of friends on the football team and after last year I let them know I was thinking about coming out for the team,” he said. “They said,

Congratulations Sheffield Molly Sheffield was recently awarded the 9-10 Female Swimmer of the year for Virginia Swimming. This honor, voted on by coaches, is awarded to one male and female in each age group and given based on a combination of points scored at swim meets throughout the short course season. Molly participated in Age Group Championships held in March where she won four individual events. Her performance provided her the opportunity to swim for the state of Virginia at the Eastern Zones Regional meet in Webster, New York. She concluded her short course swimming season ranked first

‘If you think you can make the team better come on out’.” Throughout the winter Miles worked out with his football player friends then came to spring tryouts and earned his spot with the Cavaliers. “I tell you, Connor, he’s doing a nice job,” said University of Virginia head football coach Mike London. “He’s a high effort guy. He likes being on the team, being around the team.” London also noted that he has never had a player with such a diverse background. “That’s his claim to fame,” London laughed. “He’s a multi-talented guy. A lot of players like him because he’s done so many different things.” The fact that Miles made the Cavalier’s team comes as no surprise to his former coach at Hanover, Josh Just. “He’s a very good athlete,” Just said. “I think he probably should have done it all four years there rather than just one.” In this, his single season of eligibility with UVa, Miles has taken on the role of scout team player for the Cavaliers and has seen action at tight end against VMI and Eastern Michigan.

But for Miles, the experience as not been what he thought it would be. “It actually wasn’t what I expected, it was better,” he said. “Coach London really has a vision for the football team and I’m really thankful that I can be a part of making that vision a reality and make the program successful.” Miles football eligibility expires at the end of this season, but his thoughts have already turned to the spring and UVa. baseball. “The thought has crossed my mind,” he said. “I would actually consider it if I didn’t have an 80-page thesis lingering over my head for my master’s degree.” Nothing simple considering Miles is mastering in hydrology in the Environmental Science department. Still, the thought is there. “If the opportunity presented itself I think I could contribute with that team as well on the pitching mound or maybe even swinging the bat,” he said. Only time will tell, but if any person could accomplish such a diverse feat it would have to be Connor Miles.

But for the Randolph-Macon men’s basketball squad high expectations are nothing new. “I think there always are (high expectations),” said head coach Nathan Davis. “I think with the success and what we have returning it’s more public now. Everyone looks around and says you’ve got a Top-12 this back and a Top-12 that back, so everyone’s expecting great things. But I think within the program the expectations every year are high.” D3hoops.com has ranked R-MC No. 2 in their preseason poll, just behind defending national champion UW-Stevens Point; the team that defeated the Yellow Jackets in last year’s NCAA Division III Final Four. Sporting News ranks RMC third while DIII News places them at sixth in the country. Everything points to R-MC having another out-

just not enough minutes available.” Likewise, there appears to be no resting on the laurels of last year’s accomplishments. Even though the Yellow Jackets made the school’s first trip to the Final Four, they left the Salem Civic Center feeling they should have beaten eventual champion UWStevens Point. As such, Davis said they worked hard in the weight room over the summer and came into this season stronger with many having added 20 pounds on their bench press. “I think the guys showed they were motivated in the off season and now it’s making sure we stay that way and keep getting better,” Davis said. Two areas Davis feels need improvement over last season are screening on offense and better positioning on defense. “We fouled way too much,” he said. Last season opposing teams averaged over 19 trips to the free throw line where they shot 67 percent, which equated in giving up nearly 13 points per game. “Defensively if we’re in better position we’ll foul less and it will be eight or 10 points each game that see R-MC, pg. 43 `

we can add to our point differential. On offense: “If we space the floor better we’ll get some better shots and we won’t turn it over as much,” Davis said. Last season R-MC averaged nearly 17 turnovers per game opposed to 14 assists. Though already talented, R-MC will have to improve because once again the Old Dominion Athletic Conference looks to be brutal with four teams ranked in the preseason Top-20. Eastern Mennonite, who like R-MC returns a majority of their team from last season, was tabbed by coaches as the league favorite this season. They are also ranked third in the preseason by D3hoops.com. Another team with all their players back is Virginia Wesleyan, which comes into the season ranked 12th in the nation and third in the ODAC. Guilford is 19th in the nation and fifth in the league. But as if that was not enough, Hampden-Sydney, tabbed to be the fourth best team

in conference and Washington & Lee, sixth in the ODAC also return a majority of their lineups. Lynchburg, Roanoke, Randolph, Bridgewater and Emory & Henry fill out the 711 slots. “I think it will be very competitive again,” Davis said, hoping to improve on last season’s 4-4 home mark in ODAC play. “We have to play better at home,” he said. “I think we were 7-1 on the road in league play and 4-4 at home. We need to do better than that and protect our home court.” This Monday, R-MC played a home exhibition game against the Hawksbury Jets from Australia. Then on Thursday, they will travel to American University for their final exhibition game. The Yellow Jackets begin regular season play with a home contest against Marymount (VA) on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. The Yellow Jackets kick off their ODAC slate with a brutal stretch, hosting Va. Wesleyan on Dec. 1 then traveling to E. Mennonite three days later followed by a trip to Lynchburg.

Hampden-Sydney seniors become winningest No. 18 Tigers roll to 8-0 with 49-20 win over Guilford HAMPDEN-SYDNEY -For the fourth time in program history and second in two years, the Hampden-Sydney Tigers (8-0, 3-0 ODAC)have won the first eight games of the season, defeating Guilford 49-20. With the victory this year’s senior class has become the winningest in school history with an overall record of 35-4 and two ODAC Championships. The 1973 football seniors previously had the most wins with 34. After forcing Guilford to punt, the Tigers took under four minutes to find the end zone. In the drive, junior Travis Lane (Mills Godwin) went five-for-six for 59 yards, while sophomore Evan King capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run. On the ensuing kickoff, Guilford’s Lawrence Blake returned the kickoff 54 yards to the Hampden-Sydney 41. His return set up a scoring drive that took nine plays and 2:43 off the clock. Quarterback Billy Watkins found Jordan Parker for the 12 yard score.

The Tigers responded quickly, and four plays after Kyle Vance caught a 54 yard pass, King ran in for his second consecutive score. After a Guilford three-andout, the Tigers drove 72 yards in just six plays to make it a 21-7 game. Senior Andrew Bruckner (L.C. Bird) found pay dirt with a 23-yard touchdown reception. The Tiger defense again held strong, while the offense continued to roll. King scored his third touchdown on a 74yard reception to give the Tigers a commanding 28-7 lead. King was not finished for the half, however, scoring one more time on a seven-yard scamper to go up 35-7 heading into intermission. Neither team could find much offense in the third quarter, but it was Guilford who broke the 10 minute drought with a another Watkins to Parker touchdown to cut the lead to 35-14 with 4:33 remaining in the quarter. Though the Tigers failed to convert a fourth down conversion, Shane Clarke (Manchester) picked off Watkins on Guilford’s first play to continue the Tiger drive. Lane then found Sean Cavanagh (Clover Hill) 16

yards in the endzone four plays later to go up 42-14. Hampden-Sydney built on its lead in the fourth quarter, with senior Chapin George (Douglas Freeman) making a highlight-worthy 12-yard touchdown catch, falling out of bounds while just getting one foot in the endzone. Guilford was not finished though, scoring on the final play of the game on a nine-yard reception by Parker to cut the deficit to 49-20. On the day, HampdenSydney amassed 535 yards of total offense on 397 yards passing and 138 yards rushing. Lane was 22-of-32 for 397 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. King accounted for four touchdowns with 59 yards rushing and 72 yards receiving. Vance tallied a game-high 118 yards on five receptions. Defensively, Trevor Ikwild tallied a team-high nine tackles while the Tigers amassed five sacks. Steven Fogleman (Hanover) had six tackles, and Clarke and Thomas McDonald (L.C. Bird) each had interceptions. Guilford was led by Justin Parker, who had nine receptions for 109 yards and three

touchdowns. On the day, they tallied 270 yards of offense on 232 passing and 38 rushing. Hampden-Sydney returns to action Saturday, November 6 as they travel to face Washington & Lee (7-2, 5-0) in a crucial ODAC match up. Kick off is set for 1 p.m. From Hampden-Sydney Athletics.

RANDOLPH-MACON WOMEN’S BASKETBALL PREVIEW

Yellow Jackets begin era without Ariail R-MC will use depth to balance loss in the middle By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com It would be easy to say that the Randolph-Macon women’s basketball team faces one of Division III’s biggest challenges coming into this season. After all, how do you replace the likes of Molly Ariail, the 2010 D-III Player of the Year. “I’m not sure that you ever replace somebody of her caliber,” said R-MC head coach Carroll LaHaye. But the coach also pointed out that this is not the first time she’s faced such a situation. “That question came up when that class of 2006 graduated with Megan Silva, Megan Senske and Michelle Orton,” LaHaye said. “Quite frankly the following year, 06-07, those players decided we’re going to show them what

we’re going to do without on the block, back to those players.” The 2006-07 the basket type of player “You know what? team finished the season 26-5 where Taylor likes to face Molly’s gone and we’ve got to and won the Old Dominion the basket,” LaHaye said. make an identity for ourselves.

Junior guard Maggie Roy is the team’s top returnee in minutes played (30 per game), assists (60), steals (40) and scoring, averaging 12.7 ppg and 42 percent from 3-point range. She is also the team’s best defender. “Often times last year she was assigned the opponent’s best offensive player,” LaHaye said. “So we’re expecting good things out of her defensively.” LaHaye expects a real challenge in the ODAC this season. Defending champion Washington & Lee returns everyone and Roanoke lost only a few players. Eastern Mennonite and Bridgewater could also be in the mix. The Yellow Jackets will play their first exhibition, hosting Virginia Union on Nov. 8 then open the regular season at Marymount (VA) on Nov. 16.

Hanover adds another jewel to hockey crown

Third time not the charm for Atlee By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com On Thursday evening, the Hanover field hockey team added another jewel in the crown of the school’s best season ever by taking the Capital District Tournament championship 1-0 over Atlee at SportsQuest in Midlothian. After having never finished higher than third in the district, Hanover (16-1) swept allcomers to end district regular season and tournament play undefeated. “It’s been a long road,” said Hanover head coach Sara Bottorff. “The girls have worked really hard to improve with lots of work in the off season, lots of practice during the season. We worked really hard during the month of August and it’s just showing them the work is worth it when you get to this stage. I think that we’ve been really close every other

year and this is the team to do it.” Bottorff is particularly proud to see seniors Nicole Shelton and Maria Piccolomini achieve the success during their careers. Both players were part of the initial Hawks team that suffered long seasons. “It’s been amazing seeing them transition from being where they were four years ago to now,” Bottorff said. “It’s been a journey.” The championship game was the third meeting between the two neighboring teams this season with the Raiders (13-4) suffering one-goal losses in the two prior meetings. Atlee head coach Alyssa Farling hoped the third time might be the charm, even going so far as pointing out to her team how difficult it is to beat a team three times in one season. “Yeah, that’s supposed to be hard,” she laughed after suffering her third one-point loss to the Hawks. “I think we put up a better fight this time though.” In a physical, highly con-

tested contest, Hanover forward Piccolomini scored the game’s only goal. Driving the ball up field at the 23:14 mark of the first period, Piccolomini found a small opening on the right side about five meters out. It was all she needed. The fourth year player threaded a shot past the outstretched defensive stick of Atlee’s Paige Brazee, between the feet of keeper Annie Lassiter and into the left rear corner of the goal. “She’s very dangerous,” Bottorff said. “I think that was her 18th goal of the season. That’s the most anybody’s ever scored for us. She’s been very dangerous and I’ve loved watching her grow up.” Throughout the tournament, both teams had to adapt to playing on SportsQuest’s perfectly flat fieldturf surface, which sped up the pace of the game. But rather than hinder play, the artificial surface accentuated the players’ skills. “You don’t’ have to worry about divots and getting around the dirt,” Farling said.

“You can really concentrate on good stick work and good handling. “It works well for our goalies because I think it give them a chance to show off their skills,” she added. “You see a lot more of the slide tackles because they can do it a little easier on this surface.” However, Bottorff pointed out one drawback is the surface also requires players to hit the ball cleanly. “When you hit the ground it doesn’t give so you might miss the ball,” she said. “Whereas if we were playing on our field we would still be able to hit the ball.” “I like playing on this surface because it’s basically like a good grass field, which is what we’re not used to,” Farling said. “We play on a couple of fields that are nice like this but we always play with infield (dirt surface) so this is nice. The only down side is it’s a little bit of a hike from Hanover (Co.). It would be nice to have something like this on the other side of town.” Playing the district tourna-

ment at SportsQuest will aid both Hanover and Atlee as they advance to the Central Region Tournament beginning Tuesday Nov. 2 at the same location. Atlee with play Dominion District Champion Cosby at 7 p.m. while Hanover takes on Dominion runner-up Monacan at 5:30 p.m. Though this year’s Hawks squad has gone further than any other Hanover field hockey team, Bottorff said their goals are much higher. “I told them at the beginning of the season

The Mechanicsville Local

that our goal is to get further than any other Capital District team has ever gotten, she said. “So we have our eyes on the Regional finals.” No Capital District team has ever won two games in the regional tournament and by reaching the finals Hanover would become the first to advance to the state tournament.

Hanover boys, Lee-Davis girls take district titles Snyder gets crown while freshman Breidenbaugh dominates girls By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com With a solid team performance, the Hanover boys became the first in school history to win a Capital District cross country championship while Lee-Davis took the girls title last Wednesday at Pole Green Park. Individually, Lee-Davis senior Cody Snyder and Hanover freshman Molly Breidenbaugh were named Capital District runners of the year after taking their respective races. After three years spent chasing the shadows of Atlee standouts Ben DeJarnette and Andrew Catanese, Snyder finally raced into the daylight and victory. Snyder ran behind his Raider rival Catanese throughout the race and faced a nine meter deficit as the pair made the final turn on the 5k course. Though seeing his runner trailing, Lee-Davis head coach Neil Mathews felt Snyder would pull out the win as the pair reached the home stretch. “When they got to that point, when I knew they were going to go for the finish line with the sprint, I’m usually pretty confident with Cody’s kick.” And kick it he did. Snyder found another gear, speeding past Catanese to finish with a time of 16:02 , nine seconds ahead of the Atlee runner. Mathews, who was named district girls coach of the year, feels that in his senior season, Snyder has finally developed a cross country runner’s mentality. “He’s training hard and working hard but he’s always had in the back of his mind, ‘I’m a track guy,’” Mathews said. “I think this year he finally became a competitive runner. He’s put in a lot of miles and put in a lot of hard

work to make himself into a strong cross country runner.” Breidenbaugh dominated the girls race from start to finish. Though she battled defending champion, Lee-Davis’ Bonny Turnage early, Breidenbaugh widened the margin through the wooded portion of the trail and emerged from the trees with a 50 meter lead over senior teammate Anna Gordon who also passed Turnage in the woods. Coming into the home stretch, Breidenbaugh’s lead grew substantially, winning the race in 18:56. Gordon, who was running 100 percent healthy for the first time in her career, took second at 19:16, Turnage was third with a time of 19:40 and Hanover freshman Annie Sadler fourth. “We knew coming in that Breidenbaugh was going to be a good performer,” said Hanover’s district boys Coach of the Year, Cameron Hopper. After competing in multiple sports throughout her middle school years, Breidenbaugh concentrated on cross country this season and came into the year in extraordinary condition. “Our job was to pull her back a little bit because she kept wanting to run more and more,” Hopper said. “She has certainly exceeded all our expectations and some.” Even though Hanover had three of the first four runners across the finish line they could not get the additional points needed for the team win. Turnage’s third place finish led a contingent of five LeeDavis runners in the top 10 that allowed C-feds to take the team title with 31 points. Sophomore Haley Uliasz was fifth followed by junior Samantha Perkins and sophomore Jennifer Vieni. Senior Tiel Westbrook finished 10th. Atlee came in third led by freshmen Julia Fraser (8th), Katt Grasberger (11th) and sopho-

more Paige Harrar (12th). Glen Allen, Varina, Henrico and Armstrong took fourth through seventh places. Like the Lee-Davis girls, Hanover’s boys did not place a runner first or second but instead filled five of the top 11 slots to win the team title with 34 points. Junior James Poyer led the Hawks with a third place finish in 16:48 while senior Michael Goolsby claimed fourth at 16:59. Senior Baylor Dickerson (7th), junior Lucas Nachman (9th) and senior Sam Rosser (11th) rounded out the Hawks scoring. Last season Hanover lost to Atlee by a point then lost one of their best runners (Ryan Peterson) to transfer over the summer. But the Hawks returned an upper-classman laden lineup and still felt they could claim the school’s first title. “We basically looked at it as

it was ours to lose,” Hopper said. “We had the talent and these guys have been running together for four or five years and have been looking forward to this day for a long, long time.” In second, Atlee edged out Lee-Davis 45-47 with three runners among the top eight. Sophomore Griffi Carmichael was sixth and freshman Nathaniel Hall eighth, while juniors Zachary Snider and Austin Smith took 13th and 16th. Though Lee-Davis took first (Snyder) and fifth (Robbie Longest), bad strategy at the start may have hurt the group finish. “I thought we ran pretty good, I think we just put ourselves in a hole too early trying to run a little too much strategy versus racing,” Mathews said. “We just didn’t have enough course to make up time, make up the distance we gave away early.” Senior Ben White (12th)

freshman Adam Paul (14th) and sophomore Joey Brissette (15th) rounded out the Confederates’ scoring. Henrico, Glen Allen and Varina finished fourth through sixth. Atlee dominated both of the Subvarsity races. Marques Atkinson edged out teammate Sean Gardner in the Subvarsity boys race while eighth graders Kaitlyn Mason, Brittany Wilkerson, Chloe Bavin, Lindsay Jefferson and freshman Katie Gardner took the top five slots in the girls race. The Central Region meet takes place this Saturday at Pole Green Park.
