Budget public hearing draws few remarks By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local Less than a dozen speakers took advantage of an opportunity to voice their views regarding Hanover County’s proposed 2013-2014 budget at a public hearing last Wednesday.

Festival of Arts and Sciences set

Most who did speak expressed support for the plan as presented by county administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. last month. And more than one commended supervisors and county officials for holding the line on taxes and balancing a budget that pre-

sented mounting challenges to vital county services like the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, Hanover County Public Schools and public utilities. No one spoke in opposition of the increased water and sewer fees, the only increase directly affecting county taxpayers.

Larnie Allgood spoke against increasing revenue for Hanover schools, and said students had been used as pawns for teacher unions. “I was a union member for 30 years, and I know union tactics when I see them,” Allgood said. “The use of school chil-

dren to push a political agenda is a union tactic.” “Each year we spend more money on our public schools, and get less in return,” he added. Allgood said a 10 percent decrease in the school budget could be affected with “no det-

rimental effects.” Beaverdam District citizen Patty Davis did not agree. She congratulated Hanover school administrators for their foresight in seeing and planning for financial shortfalls. She said see HEARING, pg. 26

Chickahominy Middle School recently represented Hanover County as one of 22 Richmond-area schools to receive “Active RVA” Certification by Sports Backers, a local organization whose mission is to “produce and support nationally recognized quality sporting events and programs that motivate locals and visitors alike to be more active.” The Sports Backers established the Active RVA certification and awards program to recognize the region’s exceptional employers and schools that are implementing innovative programs to promote physical activity. Thirty-eight companies and 22 schools were recognized for earning Active RVA certification, serving as role models in the community. All companies and schools recognized took home a commemorative plaque. Chickahominy was recognized for its wellness programs that promote fitness among teachers and students, including Chargers on the Move — an after-school running/walking group for students, teachers and parents, Girl’s and Boy’s Nights Out — wellness nights for

OPINION | The Local Views From the editor

LETTERS

Believe it or not, some are worth it

| Reader Views

While the debate rages on about funding and salaries in our county, some of us are convinced that there are those who truly merit the salary they are paid. Yes, you read right: You can be a government employee and worth every penny taxpayers provide. The opinions expressed on this page vary — and that’s most welcome. It is, however, somewhat puzzling when it comes to salaries considered by some as exorbitant. Well, for starters, did you consider the education that backs up that wage? For example, a physician, an attorney, a certified public accountant can demand — and receive — fees some may find unreasonable (as in high). Nonetheless, if they are employed in the private sector, they can work within whatever parameters to determine payment. Government employees have the qualifications — one would hope and expect — to perform whatever designated responsibilities with the abilities necessary. One of the most important jobs is that of a teacher. This writer considered that route when, fresh out of high school, it seemed the logical path. Many friends were pursuing either teaching or nursing degrees. (Obviously, the path for yours truly took another direction.) It’s alarming and disheartening to read the opinions of some who certainly come across as critical of the public school system — from the administration to the classroom teacher. Hanover County is known for its excellent educational opportunities. Here is a resident who has encountered several people who relocated here specifically for the schools. So, why shouldn’t our school leaders, teachers, support staff, etc., be compensated for bringing acclaim to our county? Friends in the field talk about the rewards and satisfaction, especially when a student succeeds. We should be proud of the accomplishments our school district has achieved. This is a time when unity and solidarity should echo throughout the county. We must have faith in our school and county leaders that our future is worth the effort — and the salaries. Yes, some really are worth it. Melody Kinser

Request goes out to change tone of opinions in letters

Financial status and how county operates

Can we please raise the level of discourse in this newspaper? I address this letter to all the other letter writers when I ask: Please refrain from calling our public officials money-grabbing morons. Please do not denigrate the people who educate our children and grandchildren as whiners or self-serving. Please stop accusing one another of deliberately defaming the character of another or spreading disinformation. Please be careful when quoting another person as we do not want to mislead or misquote someone else. And please do not compare our current leaders and students to the leaders and students of 50 years ago or some other age. Trust me when I tell you, I can cite just as many villains and miscreants from the “good old days” as any past heroes, scholars and selfless leaders you might come up with. The truth of the matter is we are on the tail end of a difficult financial cycle. Everyone is feeling the pinch. As a society we have become accustomed to a certain level of service. Now our service providers (and their employees) are telling us that they can no longer continue to provide those services we expect without increases in funding. This is true in both the private and public sectors. In the private sector we grumble but accept higher food prices, gas prices and other costs as the cost of doing business. Why do we cut the private sector slack while not extending the same slack to the public sector? Because we can change where and what we eat, where we shop, what we buy and where we travel and go for recreation. Our public schools roads, libraries, fire and police don’t have that luxury. Instead we demand more from these public servants while we complain about the costs for their services or complain about their inability to meet our expectations. It seems to me there are three ways to go concerning our county services: 1. Accept lower expectations, achievement, and service and response times. 2. Ask our providers what they need to maintain and/or exceed current service levels and deliver on those requests. 3. Move to a different locality. Personally, I like option 2 the best. Writers and speakers, please continue to express yourselves in our county public forums, but please temper your words. I’m quite sure we can all shape our future public policy with more civility and less demagoguery. Bill Callahan Mechanicsville

Out of 20 localities in the Central Virginia area, Hanover has: ❍ The highest paid school principals. ❍ The highest paid county workers. ❍ The second highest paid assistant principals. ❍ The third highest paid teachers. ❍ Compensation of county administrator — $200,000. ❍ Compensation of county attorney — $250,000. ❍ Compensation of School Board superintendent — $200,000. Does it look like the monies budgeted “for the children’s” instruction is really going to our children or simply into the pockets of special interests that demand more and more of your hard-earned tax money? Why does a relatively small, semi-rural county like Hanover need to pay individuals these high priced salaries anyway? John Calhoun Mechanicsville

Letter used figures reported by RT-D I read the letter to the editor on March 27, 2013, from Chris Pace, “Teacher salary scales in area quite similar.” Reread my letter to the editor of Feb. 27, 2013. You stated in your letter by saying “In March 6 Mechanicsville Local, Tom Chorinos cites average teacher pay at $49,110 in Hanover.” You further state, “This is a misleading figure about teacher pay.” There is nothing misleading about my letter. The figures were report by see LETTERS, pg. 15

Education in Hanover County and its funding have taken front and center as the Board of Supervisors nears making the Fiscal Year 2014 budget proposal official. W . C anov a Peterson IV, who assumed the chairmanship in JanPETERSON uary as he entered his second year on the board, recently talked about Hanover County Public Schools and the leadership of superintendent Jamelle Wilson. “The reality is I think Dr. Wilson is doing a super job, but she’s been basically given a very tough task: a new superintendent in a bad economy. I think she and the [Hanover County] School Board are being hit very hard by these teachers,� Peterson said in referring to some of the backlash experienced during budget talks. At that time, he said he and his fellow supervisors were “catching e-mails every day from teachers discussing what they see as cuts in the school budget and talking to the board, asking us to fix it. I don’t want to micromanage the [School] Board, they’re the experts.� Peterson also wanted to tackle head-on what he called misinformation being dissemi-

nated about the proffers and how those funds had been utilized. “Proffers have never been spent on the operations of schools,” he emphasized. When the supervisors removed proffers last year, Peterson said “It didn’t take a dime away [from the school district] because proffers have never been allowed to be spent on schools.” He pointed out that is state law. “They could only have been spent for expansion and capital improvements that were required by growth. Our schools have not grown in the last four years – they’ve actually shrunk in the number of students.” “Whatever money there is,” he continued, “we have to sit on it until sometime in the future when our schools are growing again.” He did note that operations always are separate from capital improvements. “There’s not one dime of proffer money that’s ever been in the operations of schools,” he stressed. Throughout the budget process, Peterson, of the Mechanicsville District, said he has maintained communication with his School Board represen-

tative [Glenn T. Millican Jr.]. He said the same was true of the other supervisors. “I know John Axselle [the Beaverdam District representative on the School Board] made a statement that he thought there was some conflict between the two boards that wasn’t there before,” Peterson said. “I’m not sure if it wasn’t just a spur of the moment [comment],” he added. He said a Joint Education Committee consisting of the Board of Supervisors, School Board, Wilson and county administrator Cecil R. “Rhu” Harris Jr. meets “to find ways that are effective for not just schools but the entire county.” The committee does not have a designated chair. A topic that panel has addressed is consolidating the finance departments of county government and the school system as a means “to develop efficiencies and get clarity for the whole county.” “More effective ways to cooperate from both sides” also have been on the committee’s agenda. Peterson said it is “intentionally an unchaired committee.” “This is an opportunity to put people together and to

brainstorm and to work out the best ways for the county to operate, which comes back to, I think, there’s more cooperation than there was before. Frankly,” he continued, “because before they were working as two separate entities. Now there’s communication and, of course there are going to be times of disagreement – but that’s good.” “The School Board is working the best way to work within their means, their priorities. I really do believe Dr. Wilson is looking out for her teachers – but not before the kids. The kids are her No. 1 priority.” He said that also is the stance of the Board of Supervisors. When the county faced the 5 percent increase from the Virginia Retirement System, Peterson said the supervisors gave employees a 5 percent increase in pay across the board last year. “We did it one time and got it done with” — a one-hit rather than over five years, “just smaller hits,” compared to other counties. As his term leading the supervisors moves forward, Peterson said they continue to pursue the bailout from the U.S. Department of Justice regarding polling places. The goal is

to eliminate the need “to go to Washington [D.C.] every time we want to move a polling place. I know and recognize that the Democratic Party has come out in opposition to this. I don’t know why; I think it’s a non-partisan issue.” “I do understand the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) and minority community having a fear of it. They have come and expressed opposition to the bailout. It’s not even a matter of education, it’s a matter of history.” Peterson went on to say “A bailout does not excuse us from any of the obligations of the Civil Rights Act. We’re just as bound by the law as we’ve always been.” With the bailout, he said the county won’t have to get the Department of Justice “to look at every single little thing we do. We have to abide by the law. A perfect example last year, we had three new precincts in the county.” Among them “was the precinct here in Mechanicsville moved from Stonewall [Middle School] to the library for accessibility reasons. Stonewall actually serves Covenant Woods and there was no handicapped ramp to get to the polling place.” At the library, he noted, access was available “right up to the door.”

Davis as vice chair: ‘a voice for the people’ By Melody Kinser mkinser@mechlocal.com His second year as a member of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors has Sean Davis of the Henry District serving as vice chair – and it’s a role he welcomes. “If I’m a voice for the people, the people have to speak first, and I have to gather as much input from them prior to making any decision,” he recently said. While budget matters still face Davis and his fellow supervisors, he readily steps up about where he places his support. “I believe school funding should go to the classroom; school funding should be focused on the classroom. Our schools are made by students, parents, teachers and principals.” “I can’t look back and look forward at the same time while I recognize that there are some substantial issues. I want to identify those issues, correct them, and then move forward in a positive upward path to make sure that we are taking care of our students, our teachers and the entire education system,” Davis added. “Because, you know, that really is the goal.” “We have to be focused on the kids,” he

said. “We need to make sure that funding is focused on our highest priorities. I mean, it’s that simple.” He solicits citizen input “on both sides of any issue.” With so much attention being placed on the school system’s budget, Davis said, “I want to commend the superintendent [Dr. Jamelle Wilson] and the [Hanover County] School Board for their tremendous leadership during this extremely difficult time – because we’re not at odds.” Going back to his DAVIS commitment to the classroom, he said, “I think it’s a going idea that we have the highest priority placed on classroom education and those that are providing the services to our students.” “I also want to ensure that we take a long, hard and critical look at the fiscal impacts to public safety. Public safety is something that is paramount to quality of life. I think it fits hand in glove with educa-

tion as a top priority,” Davis continued. “A lot of times when you’re looking at central services of government, people want to look at it as an either/or education and public safety.” He said both “are crucial, essential services of government and I support both at the highest level.” In serving as vice chair to W. Canova Peterson IV’s chair, Davis said, “I certainly enjoy the opportunity to serve with him. I feel that he’s a capable and qualified leader and look forward to 2013 serving with him.” With what he called “a lot of inaccurate information” being circulated, Davis said “that frightens people — and, if it were accurate, it should frighten them. But Dr. Wilson stated on Jan. 14, ‘Sometimes there’s just bad information out there.’ But I have to agree with her statement, and I think it’s incumbent to ensure that accurate information is provided to the citizenry and that a leader’s decisions are based on accurate information.” He also said “people should know that leadership decisions are based on accurate information. I think that’s more important.” see DAVIS, pg. 15

to Sean Davis’s letter to Col. David R. Hines, sheriff, that appeared in the March 20, 2013, edition. Mr. Davis wrote, “While I will not question the motives of the individual who wrote this, I do not believe it was done in error or out of any misunderstanding.� These comments are unfair and, quite frankly, wrong. The individual who wrote the letter that Mr. Davis refers to is Chris Pace. I have known Mr. Pace since we were in high school together in the late 1980s and over the past 25-plus years I have never once thought to question his integrity. Mr. Pace has twice been I am writing in response named Teacher of the Year

in Hanover County and only wants the same education for his children — and all children in the county — that he and I received. Appropriately, Mr. Pace wrote in the March20, 2013, edition that he “confused his [Sheriff Hines] comments about needing revenue with his desire for a tax increase, and for that I apologize.� I will add that I believe that revenue is either a tax, fee or penalty and thus I understand Mr. Pace’s interpretation of the sheriff ’s comments. Added revenue has a direct impact on the citizens or other county departments who pay the tax, fee or penalty. In his letter, Mr. Davis went on to say that “I continue to be

disappointed in these deliberate tactics to provide erroneous information.� Over the last two months that I have been a part of Friends of Hanover Schools, we have never once deliberately tried to make inaccurate comments. We are parents, teachers and citizens of this great county who are concerned about the current state of our schools. I can assure you that each member of our team is genuine and means well.

the newspaper, the Richmond Times-Dispatch. I did not mislead anyone in my letter. The average teacher’s pay reported by the Times-Dispatch on Feb. 24, 2013, on page 6 shows the Hanover average principal’s pay at $99.339, assistant principal’s average pay $72,752 and teacher’s average pay $49,110. It did not say anything about experienced teachers. Further, you state “In addition, the Richmond TimesDispatch article Chorinos cites lists the average school employee salary at $41,120 . . . etc.� Again, my letter did not state

anything about average school employee salary — period. This is what you stated. Yes, the Times-Dispatch article does show a school employee’s average salary at $41,120. You are distorting the facts. Since you brought school employees into the mix then I can see the overall average being at $41,120. But, school employees are not just teachers. I also see that you only picked the localities very conveniently to do your comparison. Comparing the two largest school systems in the area, Henrico school employees at $39,959, Chesterfield at $40,023, still Hanover pays more at $41,120.

DAVIS

To clear the air, I have no doubt about our school system’s performance. We pay plenty for that performance. However, the school administration is another subject. They are the ones that rake in the big bucks and no one can deny. I don’t believe the Board of Supervisors wants a cheap school system as you stated. Why? Look at the salaries that they are appropriating, they are not cheap. Tom Chorinos Mechanicsville

Customers were worried when the McDonald’s at 7059 Mechanicsville Turnpike closed its doors in November 2012 and workers began tearing it down. That closure was just temporary, and was needed for the restaurant to start over with a new look and new technology, owner-operators Tim Bishop and Whitney Welsh recently said. The restaurant is now back in business and is in the process of preparing for grand opening festivities, which will begin with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, April 13, to celebrate its new look and feel. The complete rebuild was needed because the restaurant, which sees an average of 2,500 customers a day, had simply outgrown its previous building, Whitney explained. The kitchen was just too old to use new McDonald’s systems being rolled out in locations across the country, Tim added. For the Bishops, McDonald’s

Whitney’s cousins. The Mechanicsville location opened its doors in 1979. Although McDonald’s franchises look very similar, there is evidence of the Bishop family’s touch in the Mechanicsville location. A large glass portrait of Bishop’s three grandchildren separates the main dining area from the new toddler-geared play area, which includes oversized cartoonish toy musical instruments that play tones when touched. It was Whitney and her mother Anne’s choice to include the kids – Whitney’s children and a cousin – in the store’s décor. The mother-daughter team made all of the choices about how the new store would look and feel. They didn’t tell Tim their plan. “I was the one surprised when they unveiled this,” see McDONALD’S, pg. 19

complex located near the main campus of Longwood University. The trailer was in a fenced-off construction area, police said. According to Longwood’s website, Lancer Park is a university-managed apartment and townhouse community located less than a mile from campus. Nearly 260 students live in the community and construction is underway on a housing expansion.

The new buildings are slated to be ready for occupancy this fall. University Police Chief Robert Beach said in an alert posted to the university’s website that “no Longwood students, faculty or staff were involved in the shooting, and there is no continuing danger.” Officers found Robles dead at the scene and recovered a firearm, police said.

Authorities did not say what type of gun was used in the shooting. Robles’ body was taken to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy. The circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation, police said. State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said both men were associated with the construction site and not the university.

Atlee’s Luke Bolka playing under the gun www.mechlocal.com See slideshow online!

Atlee senior pitcher Luke Bolka, right, was drawing a lot of attention on Tuesday when the Raiders hosted Mills Godwin. A host of professional scouts, above, were in attendance with radar guns in hand to get a look at the stellar southpaw during early season work.

By Eric Kolenich Richmond Times-Dispatch As Luke Bolka wound up, kicked his leg and delivered the ball to home plate, a swarm of radar guns surfaced behind the backstop. That was the scene last Tuesday at Atlee High School, where at least a dozen scouts witnessed the senior pitcher throw his first significant innings of the season. “It’s a blessing and a curse,” Atlee coach Barry Burton said of the attention. “To be able to focus with all those radar guns popping out, it’d be easy to lose it.” Bolka didn’t disappoint, throwing a complete-game twohitter as No. 6 Atlee beat No. 4 Mills Godwin 2-0. The lefty struck out 11 Godwin batters. “I think I pitched very well,” Bolka said. “My control was

there, I had good velocity, and the curve was there. Everything was good.” Attention is nothing new to him. He’s gotten a good deal of it since his sophomore year. That’s when he grew three inches and gained 30 pounds. He also put another six mph on his fastball. Now as a senior, the pitch arrives at home plate around 89 mph, though he has topped out at 93. The fact that Bolka throws at that velocity with his left hand makes him even more of a desired commodity. Professional scouts and colleges quickly took notice. He once pitched in front of 100 or so scouts at a showcase in New York. Though Bolka has committed to East Carolina, he could be drafted this spring. Scouts haven’t given him an indication

of where he might be drafted. Though he hasn’t made a firm decision, Bolka said he would only go pro if selected high enough, perhaps in the first 10 rounds. “I’d love to go pro,” he said. “It just depends on what round.” The Raiders got their first run of the day in the fourth inning when they loaded the bases, and David Graubics executed a flawless safety-squeeze bunt down the third base line. Pinch runner Jordan Harris

scored without a throw. The next batter, Roy Coates, followed suit and dropped down another bunt, scoring Evan Swecker from third. Godwin’s best chance to break through for a run came in the second inning. Bolka issued two of his three walks in that frame, and the Eagles loaded the bases. But Bolka got an inning-ending groundout from Brandon Soden, and that was the closest Godwin ever got. “I thought we had him in

trouble a little bit,” first-year Eagles coach John Fletcher said. But Bolka settled down afterward, mixing in his fastball with a big, sweeping curveball to keep Godwin’s batters off balance. He commanded the offspeed pitch well, throwing it for strikes even when he was behind in the count. “He made pitches when he needed to make them,” Fletcher said. Atlee started off Spring

Break week with a 4-3 win at Benedictine. Evan Swecker picked up the win in a complete game effort against the Cadets. Bolka did his damage on offense against the Cadets, going 1-for-3 while finishing with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI. Steve Edmunds was 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored and Dalton Ruch 2-for-4 with two doubles.

Phillips is All-Metro Indoor Athlete of the Year By Jordan Bondurant Richmond Times-Dispatch Staying focused is a skill that has served Patrick Henry High School senior Travis Phillips well, in competition and in life. Phillips, the Richmond Times-Dispatch All-Metro boys indoor track athlete of the year, won the state Group AAA and Central Region 55-meter hurdles championships during the recent indoor season. He said the expectations of a strong and supportive family have given him a significant push. “My parents have been tough on me, but I know I wouldn’t be where I’m at if it weren’t for them,” said Phillips, who intends to run track and play football at East Carolina in 2013-14. Phillips’ father, Kennedy, said that while he is delighted that his son has excelled as an athlete, academic success has always been the main priority. “We told him from the start that if he was going to do sports, he had to have the grades to do so,” Kennedy said. “Whatever

Patrick Henry senior Travis Phillips, right, was named the Richmond Times-Dispatch All-Metro Indoor Track Athlete of the Year.

he’s wanted to do, we’ve let him try it. We just told him school came first above everything else.” An honor roll student at Patrick Henry, Phillips plans

to study accounting at East Carolina. He’s planning to move onto campus a short time after graduation in June to get a jump on classes, while also preparing for his freshman season as a

member of the Pirates football team. He said there is a possibility he could spend his first season as a college football player as a redshirt. But instead of look-

ing at it as a negative, he sees it as a chance to get on top of his academics, opening up the opportunity to earn his master’s degree in accounting while playing football in his final year of eligibility. “Anything I can do to knock out some of those prerequisites,” said Phillips, a secondteam All-Metro wide receiver in 2012. “I’m excited to get down there, though.” Phillips at first used track and field as a way to stay in shape for other sports. He had played basketball for his church leading into his freshman year at Patrick Henry and decided he was going to eventually try out for the team. When his teammates saw something in him as a runner, and when he realized that his dream of playing high school basketball would be tougher than first imagined, he decided to give running a serious shot. “A couple of my friends just saw a lot of potential in me,” he said. “And when I started doing well, that’s when I decided to

stick with it.” Phillips’ parents were surprised when they learned of their son’s interest in track. But a state championship and a college scholarship later, Kennedy is glad Travis kept running. “We couldn’t be happier,” Kennedy said. “We’re really proud of everything he’s accomplished and happy his college is paid for. We know he will do great things.” Soft-spoken and calm, Phillips says he has never been much for talking trash before races or jumping around at the starting line before settling into the blocks. The only time he gets nervous, he said, is the final moment or two following the official command to get set. That is the instant in which the entire stadium goes silent. But when the gun fires, he thinks about nothing but the task at hand. “I just think about getting over one hurdle at a time,” he said. “Getting over each hurdle and making it to the finish line. That’s it.”

Payne’s homers lift Freeman past Lee-Davis By Eric Kolenich Richmond Times-Dispatch To be admitted into the Douglas Freeman High School leadership center, Ethan Payne had to write an essay, fill out an application and take a test. “It’s basically like applying to college,” he said. When the school offered him a spot in the program, he was ecstatic. Not only could he take the classes he hoped for, he had a chance to try out for Freeman’s baseball team, which he knew since middle school could be very good this year. “It’s like an added bonus to play baseball,” Payne said. Last Wednesday, the sophomore hit two home runs batting ninth in the order, and No. 5 Freeman defeated Lee-Davis 86. The Rebels (8-0) won for the second time during spring break after beating Benedictine a day before and return to district play this week. With the score knotted at 5 in the seventh inning, Logan Harvey hit an RBI single to give Freeman the lead. The next batter, Cole Hawkins, knocked in two more runs to make the score 8-5. Lee-Davis (1-2) scored one run in the bottom half of the seventh and loaded the bases. But

sidearm pitcher Miller Trevvett got Haiden Lamb to tap back to him for an easy third out. “Lee-Davis scrapped the whole game,” Freeman coach Ray Moore said. Payne’s first home run came in the third off an 0-2 fastball. He sent the pitch high and deep into the parking lot beyond the left-field fence. “I was pretty shocked I got a

fastball down the middle,” Payne said. “I guess batting ninth, they don’t expect too much.” The second came two innings later off freshman Justin Sorokowski. Payne wanted a fastball and got one on the first pitch he saw. It came in a little flat, and Payne again rocketed it into the parking lot. “If I saw a fastball, I knew I’d go for it,” he said.

They were the first two home runs of his varsity career. Payne lives in the Mills Godwin district, but crosses rivalry lines to attend Freeman. He was Freeman’s designated hitter Wednesday, but also plays center field. When starting center fielder Kyle Farkas hurt his arm in the second practice of the spring, Payne got a chance to play.

R-MC spring sports battling for ODAC slots By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com The spring has turned into a battle for Randolph-Macon College athletics to reach post season play. As the Yellow Jacket teams head into the final weeks of their regular season, every sport finds itself in a similar situation, residing in the middle of the pack among Old Dominion Athletic Conference competitors. Baseball: The Yellow Jacket baseball team currently sits fifth among the 11 ODAC squads.

On Sunday, R-MC swept host Eastern Mennonite 7-5, 11-7 to improve to 14-12-1, 8-7-1 ODAC. With only four ODAC games remaining on their schedule, Randolph-Macon may need to win out their final league contests to maintain a hold on a berth for the tournament which begins Apr. 25 in Salem. However, the schedule does favor R-MC. This Saturday, Apr. 13, the Yellow Jackets host last place Emory & Henry (8-20, 3-11

ODAC) in a double-header starting at 1 p.m. R-MC then plays it’s final ODAC series at Guilford (14-17, 6-10) the following Saturday in a doubleheader. The Yellow Jackets had an opportunity to solidify their hold on a tournament berth against fellow middle-of-thepacker Lynchburg on Saturday. In the home double-header, RMC suffered a shut-out 8-0 loss in the opener then saw their chance to even things up in the night cap nullified by darkness.

The game ended in a 10-10 tie after four hours and 16 innings played. R-MC rallied four times to stave off the loss. Trailing 6-2 heading into the bottom of the eighth inning, Tim Benjamin and Michael Trentham produced RBI singles to trim the margin to two heading into the ninth. In their final at-bat of regulation, Mitch Keeler’s RBI single drove in Travis Lodge to trim the lead to one then Benjamin see R-MC, pg. 34 

His bat was good enough to earn him a spot in the lineup, even after Farkas returned to center field. “If Farkas doesn’t get injured, I don’t know what would have happened,” Moore said. Payne said he’s fine batting ninth. Wednesday night, he showed Freeman’s lineup can hit from top to bottom. On Thursday, Lee-Davis fell to 1-3 on the season in yet another close loss, 8-6, at St. Christopher’s. Andrew Sergeant was tagged with the loss in the contest. Patrick Holler led the Confederates at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Sorokowski notched an RBI and a double while Josh Lam went 1-for-3 with an RBI. This week gets no easier for Lee-Davis. After a Monday outing at rival Atlee, the C-feds travel to Varina for a 7 p.m. Tuesday contest. Last week the

Blue Devils pulled off a 10-2 upset of Dinwiddie; the only team to beat Hanover this season. (Both games were played after press deadlines) On Friday, the Confederates host the #2 Hawks in a 7 p.m. contest. D.

Young falls into relief role for U.Va. baseball By Michael Phillips Richmond Times-Dispatch C HA R L O T T E S V I L L E When Virginia’s pitchers make a mess, Austin Young is there to clean it up. The Atlee graduate has found himself in some of baseball’s least desirable situations, entering games in the middle innings with runners on base. His job is to shut down opposing rallies, something he’s done with remarkable consistency this year. “In most games, there’s going to come a pivotal point in the ballgame that you need somebody to come out of the bullpen and get an out,” Cavs coach Brian O’Connor said. “Certainly Austin Young has shown he’s capable of doing that on a consistent basis.” Young, a junior, slammed the door once again against Miami last Sunday, drawing an inning-ending double play after entering the game with a runner

on second in the fifth inning. Young picked up his fourth win of the season at Wake Forest on Sunday, dropping his ERA to 0.77 this season. He’s been a big part of the Cavs’ 29-3 overall record entering Tuesday night’s game at Liberty. “I love going out there, knowing I need to make big pitches to get us out of the inning,” he said. “It’s good to know our coaches have confidence in me – as well as the team – to get the job done.” Young sat on the bench most of his freshman season. That’s when he worked on his unorthodox throwing motion, hoping it could give him an edge out of the bullpen. His delivery is a cross between a standard pitcher and a sidearmer. Asked to describe, he called it a “high three-quarters on the side, with a little crossfire across my body.” Entering in the middle of innings out of the bullpen, he’s able to catch opponents off guard after facing one of the

Wahoos’ starters, all of whom have more traditional motions. “It gives us a different angle, a different look,” Young said. “Now as a junior, I’m throwing with a lot of confidence – a lot stronger, more motion and more velocity.” Young stepped into the spotlight after two successful appearances against N.C. State, one where he stranded two runners, then the next day picking up a key out with the bases loaded. “We have a lot of confidence in Austin,” O’Connor said. “He comes in and throws strikes. He’s got really good stuff, and has a different look that maybe (opponents) haven’t seen from an arm angle standpoint.” Young’s long-term goal is to make it to Omaha for the College World Series. He wasn’t on the trip in 2011, but as one of the few upperclassmen on this year’s team, has the memories of what it took to get there. The Cavs’11-3 record in ACC play is the conference’s sec-

Drivers getting feel for Gen-6 car at RIR By Charlie Leffler cleffler@mechlocal.com Last Monday and Tuesday a select group of Sprint Cup drivers took advantage of a change in NASCAR’s testing policy to put the new Generation 6 car through its paces at Richmond International Raceway. For the first time since 2008, race teams were allowed to run up to four test sessions at tracks that will appear on the NASCAR schedule. Therefore, Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing’s Juan Pablo Montoya and Jamie McMurray joined Richard Petty Motorsports drivers Marcos Ambrose and Aric Almirola at RIR to take advantage of two days on the short track. “It’s crazy to be at a track testing that we actually get to race at,” McMurray said. “We don’t get to do this very often.” While most of the drivers were looking for insight into how the car would perform at RIR, Almirola sought an opportunity to establish an early season baseline for every short track on the circuit. “Other than Phoenix, we’ve really not had much time with

this new car and the new setups and stuff that we’re running on a short track,” he said. “This is really an opportunity for us to test here at Richmond and get dialed in for our short track package and get a better grasp on what we need.” While testing produced few specif-

ics that will prove beneficial for the drivers’ return trip to RIR in three weeks, McMurray said the crews get a chance to get a closer look at things that they can’t micromanage over the course of a busy race weekend. “The one thing you get out of this is you get to have lasers on the car,

the travel indicators on the shocks so you can really get the splitter and all that you don’t get to look at when you come back here for the race,” he said. “When you come to test it’s just really nice to be able to look at all that and get a really good baseline when you come back.”

Likewise, RIR presents unique challenges for teams to adjust to on a short track. “This has been a really hard track to get around,” McMurray said. “It’s really hard to make your car turn in the middle of the corner and it’s probably the slickest race track to drive off the corners. You literally, in the race here, spin the tires all the way from Turn 4 to the start finish line. So you work really hard on trying to get your car to do both of those things and it’s hard to do one without hurting the other. So really that’s what we’ll work on the whole time we’re here.” As such, Ambrose said drivers are battling the same problems they faced with the previous version of the car. “We’re fighting similar characteristics,” he said. “We’re fighting, these cars are very heavy anyway and hard to get them to turn the middle without spinning the rear tires coming off the corners.” Still, the overall impression among the four drivers was the Gen-6 car is much faster at RIR than past versions. see TESTING, pg. 36

TESTING Continued from pg. 35 

During early morning laps under low temperatures, the cars nearly reached the track record speed of 129.93 mph set by Brian Vickers in 2004. “The track was extremely fast in the morning,” Almirola said. “When we rolled out on the track at nine this morning it was still kind of cool and the track had a lot of grip. We were running lap times close to the pole speed for the spring racein race trim. So, really surprised at how fast the track was.” Ambrose concurred. “This car is certainly capable of going lap record speeds around this place,” he said. “If the weather is good in qualifying and nice and cool we’re going to lay down some fast lap (times). “This car has got inherent characteristics that are better for the race car,” Ambrose said. “It’s got less weight. It’s got more down force. It’s got a wider track. All those things really make for better lap times.” Early in the season some

drivers voiced displeasure with the Gen-6 car but those testing at RIR had nothing but praise for the latest version. “Everything’s been really good about it,” McMurray said. “It’s got much more grip than what we had last year. I think you’ll be hard to find anybody that says they don’t like that. It just turns better, has more drive off, everything’s better about it.” Montoya agreed. “Probably the racing is better than it was before and I think it was great already and the way the cars look; this Chevy SS- I think it’s amazing.” Almirola utilized sarcasm to point out, from a driver’s standpoint, little has changed. “Inside the car, the steering wheel’s in the same location and the pedals are in the same location so I really don’t’ have a whole lot to adjust to,” he said. However, he was quick to add- “The crews, the crew chiefs, engineers and stuff, they’ve had quite a bit of stuff to adjust to from track to track to track that we’ve gone to. So, really for me, I just get in

and drive and complain about what I’m doing.” Some early driver complaints were it was difficult to pass with the Gen-6 car but McMurray disagreed. “For me it’s been a little bit easier to pass than the last couple of years so I don’t think that’s a fair assessment,” he said. While Ambrose did not go so far as to condemn the Gen-6 passing ability, he did point out everyone is still going through a breaking in period. “The teams and the drivers are all brand new to this

Racing is always about change and things moving forward and what we did last year to race them and to set them up are different than what they are now. So we have to be aware and mindful of that and working to putting on better races for the fans. “It’s just the evolution of racing,” Ambrose said. “That’s really what it’s about.”
