Abbott served on the Ashland Planning Commission for two terms. In other matters, assistant county administrator Jim Taylor provided a Public Safety annual report, an analysis that gauges the county’s efficiency in meeting needs in the county. Response times are slightly up and “off the target” for last year, but Taylor said those numbers are relative. Taylor said outcomes remain positive when citizens access emergency services in Hanover. Eleven of the 13 Tier I indicators were positive and two fell slightly under the county’s stated goals. “Our 911 center takes on average 600 calls every day,” Taylor said. One hundred of those are of the emergency nature and require immediate response. Calls for police service account for about 80 percent of the total calls to the emergency center with EMS required for about a fifth of the requests. Fire/EMS responded to a majority of

Taylor also addressed the ongoing problem of attracting volunteers for Fire/ EMS services, and the effect it can have on stations in the county. “We are seeing fewer volunteers and it is taking more time to train them,” he said, referring to decreasing volunteer numbers. Director of Planning, David Maloney requested authorization to advertise ordinances regarding the keeping of chickens and bees (not together) in residential districts. He also requested authorization for an ordinance regarding guest houses in the county. Detached single-family homes with lots of more than a third of an acre would be permitted to keep up to six female chickens under the new ordinance. The birds must be contained in an enclosure within the rear yard of the property, and owners are responsible for waste and odor control. The board also opted to advertise a public hearing for the keeping of bees in RS, R-1, R-2 and R-3 zoning districts, the same designated area targeted for the keeping of chickens.

advertise, but made it clear she has concerns regarding the new ordinance. She is suggesting increased minimum lot sizes from the proposed one-third of an acre. Citing increased neighbor disputes, she pointed out that homeowners associations will not have any power to override the new ordinance and regulate the raising of chickens. Prichard questioned the need for an enclosure inside a fenced area, a measure designed to isolate the birds and prevent escape. Maloney said the requirement ensures security in areas where fences could be as low as four feet, and also protects the birds from predators. The public also will provide input on proposed new definitions to the term “guest houses” and restrictions regarding those designations. The board approved the request to advertise all three items unanimously and public hearings will be scheduled for next month.

Sunshine Week is all about your right to know

Your right to know — that’s the bottom line when it comes to observing, celebrating and embracing Sunshine Week. Our goal with every edition is to report the news. We do not generate it; we do not create it. We report it. And having the access to do so accurately is paramount to the news you need to know. Without hesitation, we question those who would try to circumvent the media in pursuing news that impacts you and your community. Again, your right to know is why we do what we do. Do you believe your county functions with an open government philosophy? If not, then we as voting citizens are responsible for allowing such misbehavior. It is not acceptable and, no matter how it may be spun, the transparency of government in action is the only way for us to prosper and enjoy success. Hiding behind the guise of a closed session has always been a sticking point with this writer. Is it legal? Are those doing business behind closed doors adhering to the exceptions to the Sunshine Law? Yes, we often wonder and will not accept an “I didn’t know” response. Those who are elected or appointed to serve have an obligation to learn all facets of the responsibilities associated with the office. Ignorance is not and never will be an excuse. We as taxpayers have rights and expect respect from those who are representing us. Don’t take for granted that we aren’t watching, because we are — and more often than you may realize. If we seek information about the inner workings of government, our expectation also is to receive whatever materials requested. Don’t shut us out — and the same goes for the citizenry. Don’t underestimate their interest and their involvement in the process. Conduct meetings in a responsible and legal manner and keep the doors open. We understand the exceptions to the law, but we also have seen abuses through the years. It’s simple: Let the sun shine in. As of Sunday, Sunshine Week marks its 11th year. Here’s to many more. Be open. Be transparent. Melody Kinser

We have a right to feel safe at home By Dave Lawrence Richmond Suburban News

Tuesday, March 1, started out a good day for my family. Taking advantage of schools being closed because of the election, my wife, daughter and I headed to Belle Isle State Park for some hiking and bird watching. We had fun, and came home in a good mood. The good mood did not last. The problem was that somebody shot our house while we were out.

This wasn’t just a case of damaged siding. The bullet passed through the wall into my daughter’s room, ricocheted off the ceiling, and hit the far wall before falling to the floor. While I don’t own any guns now, I used to. I even used to be a member of the NRA – back when its focus was on gun safety and marksmanship. One of the things I remember from those days was the Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety, particularly the one “Know your target and what is

beyond.” Somebody failed to live up to that commandment two weeks ago. We live in the High Point Farms neighborhood. From the path of the bullet, it could have come from McCauley Lane. It could have come from a swale behind the cul-de-sac on Wilt Lane. It could have come from somewhere beyond that. I don’t know and don’t much care, because see SAFE, pg. 8 

Residents should help to keep Hanover clean As spring approaches, it is a good time to consider picking up trash and debris strewn along the streets and roads of Mechanicsville and Hanover County. It is disheartening to see the amount of trash that falls from vehicles going to the landfill off Pole Green Road and the amount that is tossed from vehicles. We have been here less than four years, and I do not remember seeing this amount of debris before. So, let’s do our part to keep Hanover County rural, clean and attractive! Spring is the time!

HSFOIL disapproves of restricting materials Recently, the Virginia General Assembly passed HB516policy on sexually explicit instructional material. This bill forces teachers to send notification to parents whenever a material that is “sexually explicit” is to be used in the classroom. The parent may then request an alternative assignment if the decision is reached that they do not want their student exposed to such content. Sound familiar? While we are Hanover-based, HSFOIL (Hanover Students for Freedom of Information and Learning) greatly disapproves of this bill, for we believe that this is an obvious restriction of a student’s information and learning. The story of how this bill came to be is eerily similar to the story in our very own Hanover County. A parent

rejected to the use of the book “Beloved” in the classroom, due to a scene where a slave girl is raped by two school boys. While rape is, yes, an extremely sensitive topic, it is still a real thing. We can’t continue to shield our students from the truths of the world in the fear of what? That they might get the wrong idea? Let me ask: Where is a student more likely to get the wrong idea — in the classroom, in a piece of literature, under a teacher’s supervision, or out in the real world, where no such supervision exists? Why not use education to our advantage? Educate students about controversial topics and discuss with them what is right and what is wrong. Give our maturity the benefit of the doubt for once! As a senior in high school, I am shocked and embarrassed by how often my intelligence is undermined by those who are supposed to have the most faith in it. Controversial materials greatly enhance a student’s education, they do not hinder it. Allowing a vocal minorsee LETTERS, pg. 8 

Familiar face welcomed back to handle schools’ finances By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

More than 700 plants are toxic to animals, including tulip and daffodil bulbs, sago palms, lilies, azaleas, and rhododendrons. Poisonous mushrooms can pop up in lawns overnight, and cocoa mulch and many fertilizers also are toxic. Protect your animals by keeping these plants and substances out of your home and yard and by keeping animals indoors and closely supervised when they are outside. Many foods that are harmless to humans can sicken or even kill cats and dogs, including chocolate, coffee, alcohol, grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts, onions, and bread dough. Xylitol, a sweetener often used in toothpaste, gum and mints, is extremely toxic to animals, as are many common medications and vitamins. Store these items out of animals’ reach and where they can’t be knocked down, and make sure that children and guests know not to give them to animals. If you suspect that your animal has been poisoned, call your veterinarian or the Pet Poison Helpline at 855-7647661 immediately. Visit www.PETA.org for more ways to keep animals safe.

ity of parents to shield students from controversial topics hurts no one but the students themselves. Our students should be well-rounded and intellectually competent in all great works of literature, despite the “evils” the pieces might hold. Evils will exist in the world no matter if we shield our students from them or not, but it is much better for students to experience them for the first time in a book, rather than in real life. This is why I, and the rest of HSFOIL, urge the veto of Bill 516, and ask all those who agree to do the same.

The Windsor Subdivision of Hanover County had its streets resurfaced -- well, sort of resurfaced -- in the latter part of 2015. Since that time the resurfaced streets are in worse shape, in my opinion, than before this resurfacing job was started. You would only have to send one of your reporters to our subdivision to view the continuous deterioration of the resurfacing project. There are gaping patches where the resurfacing material has deteriorated. Tons of loose gravel is lying on streets throughout the subdivision and will continue to cover the streets until the streets are properly resurfaced, or, until the resurface job is completely deteriorated. Residents of the subdivision have filed numerous complaints to VDOT (Virginia Department of Transportation) and communicated with a member of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors and a Virginia legislator. I have sent a letter to Mr. Mike Cade, resident maintenance manager, VDOT, dated Feb. 15, 2016. I have not received a reply to this letter. I see LETTERS, pg. 19 

Family’s journey, struggle leave impact on county By Meredith Rigsby News Editor

MECHANICSVILLE — When Joanna Frank and her husband moved to Hanover County 15 years ago they knew they would be facing some challenges. The Franks were moving from New York,

ranked number one in Healthcare Services, to Virginia, ranked 47. For this family, the transition would not come without its fair share of challenges because the Franks had two young, twin sons, Mathew Frank and Tyler Frank, who both suffered from autism, intellectual disabilities and required a great deal of medical care.

Joanna Frank, a prior health care administrator, was surprised when she contacted the Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office only to find out that there were very limited community-based services and programs in the area targeting kids with special needs at the time. After researching the cost to the county, required training and program materials,

Joanna Frank approached the sheriff ’s office about implementing Project LifeSaver. Project LifeSaver provides kids with special healthcare needs that have a tendency to wander off with an ID (identification) bracelet that looks like a watch. The ID bracelet is a personalized radio trans-

Lindgren said the ceremony will get underway at 10 a.m. at the R-MC Frank E. Brown Fountain Plaza on Henry Street. (In the event of rain, commencement exercises will be held in the Randolph-Macon Brock Sports and Recreation Center at 400 N.

Payne is a successful businessman, a steadfast community leader, and a dedicated alumnus whose meaningful connection to R-MC spans 50 years. We are honored that he will serve as commencement speaker, and we look forward to having him share his insight and life lessons with our graduates and their families.” A native of Richmond, Payne earned a B.S. in chemistry from RandolphMacon College, where, in 1966, he became the college’s first African

American student. He earned an M.B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh in 1977, and he completed post-graduate work in Carnegie-Mellon University’s Program for Senior Executives in 1994. He joined Gulf Oil Corporation in 1970 as a systems analysis chemist and remained with the company after it merged with Chevron in 1984. Throughout his career, Payne held several management positions, including general manager of research

services for Chevron Oil Research Co., general manager of technology support, and general manager and laboratory director for Chevron Petroleum Technology Co. He is a member of the American Chemical Society, American Management Institute, American Petroleum Institute, International Facility Management Association, and the National Technical Society.

word “cataclysmic.” About 30 spellers, ages 8 to 13, competed in Saturday’s bee, which consisted of more than 13 rounds and lasted over two hours. Spellers represented Richmond-area school systems, as well as districts from around the region. “She faced a lot of stiff competition and we’re really proud of how well she did,” Delany Cotton’s mother, Jodi, said.

Daniel P. Finnegan, vice president for news and digital audience at the Richmond Times-Dispatch moderated the spelling bee.

It took about six months, according to Joanna Frank, but the sheriff ’s office implemented Project Lifesaver and Mathew and Tyler Frank were the first in the county to receive the watches. Since then, Hanover has taken the initiative and trained all surrounding counties with Project LifeSaver, Joanna Frank said. Following the successful rollout of Project LifeSaver in Hanover, the Franks also became the first family in the county to receive a waiver service. A waiver service allows families to waive the placement of their child in a longterm care facility and instead opt to receive state support for in-home care. A waiver service is granted when a child has a need for long-term care but their needs

Allen, supervisor of school counselors, updated the school board on efforts underway to ensure equity for all students in Hanover County Public Schools. She said all students are required to fill out a Google request form in order to see a counselor. The completed form allows counselors to more ably track students, requests and needs. Students in Hanover also have access to a free SAT preparatory program called Khan Academy, an online tutoring service designed to improve scores. Allen said this service provides all students with access

to assistance and enhances career and college choices for all students. She explained how curriculums across the county have been examined to make sure all students are receiving the same opportunities. In another matter, a policy review committee has not reached a final conclusion regarding possible revisions to the county’s current policy on controversial subject matter aired in Hanover classrooms. The committee is actively examining recommendations presented by students in January, but was hesitant in reaching conclusions pending Virginia General Assembly legislation that could affect any modifications.

A few years after Mathew Frank’s passing, Tyler Frank began having seizures. Tyler Frank was having about 30 seizures a day, was in a wheelchair, was wearing diapers and was having trouble swallowing. On March 13, 2015, Tyler Frank, 18, had a seizure and passed away. Joanna Frank’s husband, Keith Frank, who had been watching their son that day, had stepped into the garage for a moment when the seizure occurred. He took his own life later

that day. Once again, the community of Hanover County came together to support Joanne Frank. “What a community does to get someone through is just so powerful and, you know, it was tremendous, — people just showed up,” Joanna Frank said. Although community members showed up in droves to help Joanna Frank through this difficult time, they had already been supporting her and her family for years. When Tyler Frank was 3

years old, Hanover County Public Schools created a backward training program specifically for him that allowed him to go to school at the end of the day when the other kids had left. Each day, 15 minutes were added to the time that he was at school, eventually enabling him to be able to be in public school every day from 12 to 2 p.m. “Hanover County schools really thought out of the box with Mathew and Tyler,” Joanna Frank said. Walgreens Pharmacy, every month for six years, bought

Tyler Frank’s over-the-counter medicine, such as his vitamins, so that the Franks could purchase it through their insurance. Following the passing of her son and husband, church organizations came together to be with her 24 hours per day for the next three months, rotating shifts and hours. Local paint companies came to paint her house, while others helped clean the yard to help Joanna Frank sell her home. In addition, Hanover High

LETTERS recently learned that Mr. Cade has retired. These efforts seem to have had minimal support. I am determined to continue efforts to receive appropriate response on this issue.

So, if you have a child and you’re just getting a diagnosis of something, you can register your child and it goes into the EMT first responders system. Everything we did we did because we needed it for our children.” In 2006, Mathew Frank unexpectedly passed away. Mathew Frank had been the stronger of the twins and the family was not prepared for his passing. “We were blown away by the community outreach [following his passing],” Joanna Frank said. “There was a fire truck on every street corner; the sheriff ’s deputies were his pallbearers. There were churches; there were so many people that, you know, were there that we didn’t know how to absorb that because we had only lived here six years.”

War Memorial honors former delegate

By John Ramsey Richmond Times-Dispatch

RICHMOND -- More than 100 veterans, legislators and others attended a ceremony Monday evening, Feb. 29, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Virginia War Memorial and to name a portion of the grounds after longtime advocate Frank D. Hargrove Sr. In 1956, state leaders and war heroes gathered on the hill overlooking the James River and the City of Richmond when they dedicated a memorial that included glass and marble walls etched with the 10,342 names of Virginians who died in World War II and the Korean War, a statue called Memory and an eternal flame. The memorial now includes an education center, an amphitheater and the names of more than 12,000 of the state’s war dead since World War II. “We could not be prouder

who’ve sacrificed.” The memorial is in the midst of another expansion. Plans call for a new wall to hold the names of Virginians who have died in war since 9/11, a 200-spot parking garage and a new education wing. The memorial hosted more than 50 programs last year, and its staff continues to document veterans’ stories on videos that are used in educational films sent

to schools across Virginia. More than 71,000 people visited the memorial last year. Del. John M. O’Bannon, RHenrico and chairman of the Virginia War Memorial board, urged people to stop in for a history lesson or a moment of silence. “It’s yours. It belongs to the people of Virginia,” O’Bannon said, “and I hope you’ll treasure it and use it.”

and the Hanover High School choir performed. “There were hundreds and hundreds of people that were there in every part of this journey,” Joanna Frank said. In 2006, the Mathew Frank Memorial Scholarship program was created in Mathew Frank’s name and has given out

14 scholarships to high school seniors in the community. A new scholarship also will be created this year in Tyler Frank’s name called the Tyler Frank Memorial Scholarship for first responders. “I think the most important thing is we are coming up on their anniversary and really

thanking the community for really carrying me through this year,” Joanna Frank said. Mathew and Tyler Frank had an immediate impact on the Hanover community and its residents when they moved here 15 years ago and continue to have a lasting impact today.

ASHLAND — The Arc of Hanover and Hanover Community Support Services (HCSS) invite the community to join them in celebrating the 12th annual “A Taste of Hanover,” which will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, at Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World at 11550 Lakeridge Parkway in Ashland. In 11 years, the two nonprofits – through the festive food and libation tasting event — have raised over $200,000 for Hanover County’s citizens with disabilities. A Taste of Hanover continues to grow each year and the two organizations said they are proud to highlight the very best in culinary delights and liba-

tions from some of the area’s finest restaurateurs, caterers and chefs. The Arc of Hanover and HCSS’s goal is to raise $25,000 individuals with disabilities. Funds raised will improve the lives children, adults and their families by providing

services and support to help with adaptive equipment, respite care, recreational and educational programs along with financial assistance to live independently. To be successful, the event depends heavily on commusee TASTE, pg. 26 


State, county workers and volunteers join to clean up county HANOVER — Roadside litter is an ugly and expensive problem in Hanover County. Last year county work crews and mechanical sweepers collected more than 778,615 pounds (389 tons) of roadside litter. This astounding number doesn’t include what was picked up by the Virginia Department of Transportation and its Adopta-Highway volunteers. Much of the litter on Hanover’s roadways comes from trash being blown out of trucks and utility trailers on their way to solid waste convenience centers or commercial landfills. Secure your loads so this doesn’t happen. Inexpensive tarps are available at most hardware stores. Perhaps even more of the

litter is thrown from vehicles by careless individuals. Just look along almost any interstate ramp to see how litter can ruin the beauty of an area. If you are one of those individuals, refrain from carelessly throwing trash out your window. Roadside litter is a problem that everyone can help solve. You also can help by joining the “Adopt a Highway” program. Spring is a good time to enroll because VDOT encourages Adopt-a-Highway participants to schedule one of their two yearly pickups in April to coincide with “Earth Day.” Adopt-a-Highway volunteers agree to pick up litter at least twice a year for three years over a two-mile stretch of highway. In return, VDOT

provides trash bags, vests, important safety information, and highway signs that recognize your group. More information about the Adopt-a-Highway program can be obtained by calling 1-800-PRIDE-VA or going to VDOT’s website at www.virginiadot.org Another way that everyone can help keep Hanover beautiful is by not placing illegal

signs alongside the road or within a median strip. Any area inside a ditch line would almost always be within the VDOT right-of-way. Manual roadside litter pick up is a cooperative program between Hanover County Public Works, Pamunkey Regional Jail and VDOT.

Applications being accepted for HCPS preschool initiative INFORMATIONAL OPEN HOUSE Four Rivers-Fredericksburg Project / Pinewood Switching Station Project DOMINION VIRGINIA POWER plans to rebuild an existing transmission line that extends approximately 34 miles from the Four Rivers Substation in Hanover County to the Fredericksburg Substation in the City of Fredericksburg. The line, constructed in 1957, must be rebuilt to ensure its continued safe and reliable operation. All of the work will occur within the existing right of way. Dominion also plans to build a new switching station in the North Doswell area. The new Pinewood Switching Station will be located east of I-95 off Washington Highway where the Four Rivers-Fredericksburg line delivers electricity to Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC). In addition, Dominion plans to build a new “tap” line that connects the Four Rivers-Fredericksburg line to the Pinewood Switching Station, and rebuild a tap line from the Pinewood Switching Station to the REC delivery point. Both tap lines will be constructed within the existing right of way. Stop by our open house events to learn more about what these projects will mean for you and the community. We want to share our plans and answer your questions.

Softball teams hope to keep legacies alive By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Last year, most who followed high school softball looked for a possible champion from Hanover County. Two teams in particular, Patrick Henry and Lee-Davis, were consistently mentioned among the top teams from the area with the potential to take a Virginia High School League Group 5A state title. Hanover also had a chance to make a big run in Group 4A. Atlee began the season with a lot of questions. The Raiders needed to replace six starters, and one of their returners – catcher Raine Wilson – was unable to play at the start of the season because of an injury. At the end of the season, the betting was still on Patrick Henry or Lee-Davis in Group 5A. But Atlee, not Lee-Davis, was the one to emerge out of Region 5A South. Atlee then eliminated Patrick Henry in the 5A semifinals, and defeated Hickory for the state title. All four Hanover teams lost a handful of players from graduation and other reasons this year, but all four have plenty of starters returning and have the potential to have a lasting postseason impact again.

lineup has been at the top: former head coach John Early and assistant Becky Levy had been planning to step down at the end of last season no matter what. Going out with a state championship was gravy. This year, Tom McIntyre takes the helm for the Raiders. Lee-Davis fans should recognize him.

now playing at Radford. He inherits a team largely intact from last year’s state championship team. Second baseman Annemarie Warley is the only starter who graduated. “It’s a good place to come in, on a team that’s fully loaded,” McIntyre said. “The only thing you have to think about is that when you have the expectations and the bar is set as high as this team has set, especially coming

off a state championship, I’m sure all eyes are upon us to see if we can maintain a high level. “So it does come with a different kind of pressure, maybe, than trying to restock and reload, but I think we’re up to it as a coaching staff.” The Raiders’ pitching rotation will again be anchored by junior Peyton St. George and senior Laura Kate Moss. There is an abundance of

senior leadership on the Raiders’ squad: In addition to Wilson and Moss, Taylor Sandeford, Mallory Fodill, Riley Satterwhite and Kendall Ramey. Lee-Davis The Confederates likewise return a team largely intact from last year, the only hole in the lineup that needs to be filled is that of Lauren McIntrye at shortstop.

The team will be anchored by the batter of seniors Kylie Stonebraker on the mound and Brooke Martin behind the plate. “They brink a lot of experience,” said Lee-Davis head coach Jackie Davis. “Kylie getting a lot of time on the mound last year definitely helps us out with her experience and her strength as a player. I think that’s good for us – that experience in the battery.” The Confederate starting lineup is still somewhat young, with four sophomores – including outfielders Logan Hawker and Sydney Guess – and possibly a freshman on the card. “Mixed in with the senior leadership, I’ve just got to figure out how to get those guys to gel on the field and really figure out the combinations that I’m going to use to make sure that we’re getting the most out of our offense we can while keeping a solid, fundamental defense,” Davis said. “We’re going to be pretty similar to what we were last year with the exception at shortstop. That position is still being fought for.” Davis said the Confederates’ biggest challenge this year was their Achilles’ heel last year: consistency on offense. “We need to be more consistent with our hitting and with our scoring opportunities, not see SOFTBALL, pg. 39 


Baseball teams ready to go further this year Schrad said the players vying for the position are capable of doing the job. It’s the infield and pitching that are the challenges Schrad has to solve. “What we’re really building is our entire infield,’ Schrad said. “Last year, the seniors probably pitched 90 percent of our innings. So we’re going to rely heavily on underclassmen to be our pitching staff.” While he expects southpaws Rob Whitfield and Preston Eacho to handle a lot of their innings, Schrad said the Raiders will likely be pitching by committee, at least for awhile.

By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor MECHANICSVILLE – Last year, Hanover’s baseball team made yet another trip to a state tournament. Patrick Henry advanced to the Region 5A North semifinal, and Lee-Davis just missed clinching a berth in the Region 5A South tournament. This year, some things have changed. Atlee and Lee-Davis have new coaches. All teams have had the usual turnover in players because of graduation. The Raiders have moved into Conference 16 with Patrick Henry, but the Patriots will be playing a Capital District schedule with the other three Hanover teams. But all area baseball teams have a shot at repeating, if not exceeding, their successes last year – once they get through beating up on each other in the regular season. Hanover The Hawks won two straight state titles – a AAA state title in 2013 and, after realignment, a Group 4A state title in 2014. Last year, they had to settle for a state semifinal appearance while former Conference 20 rival Glen Allen took the prize. This year Glen Allen has moved up to Group 5A, leaving Hanover some breathing room at the conference and regional levels. And the Hawks have nearly everyone back from last year’s team, having lost only four seniors to graduation. “We’ve got a really strong club coming back,” said Hanover head coach Charlie Dragum. “Most of our starters are returning, so we feel pretty comfortable as far as experience goes.” Hanover should feel comfortable. Six of their starters have signed with Division I schools.

Dave Lawrence/The Local

Hannover’s John Gregory (10) and Jack Dragum (center) return to a strong Hawks’ lineup that may challenge for another state title.

Offensively they will be potent, with Jack Dragum (.385 average), Camden Grimes (.371), Cayman Richardson (.349), Hunter Marshall (.276) and John Gregory (.254) taking the lead in putting the ball in play. Hanover has a wealth of pitching back, with ace Grey Lyttle (5-1, .740 ERA, 57 strikeouts) likely taking the lead in the rotation and Jack Dragum

(3-1 .716 ERA, 27 strikeouts), John Gregory (3-2, 3.12 EA, 25 strikeouts) and Hayden Moore (five saves, 2.41 ERA, 34 strikeouts), among others, providing plenty of pitching support. The key to earning a repeat trip to states will be getting the offense when they need it most. “We have to play better offensively this year if we are to win at the highest level,” Dragum said. “We feel like we’re

going to have a chance with our pitchers and we’re going to play good defense. We just need to have better at-bats consistently against good pitching there at the end of the season when it counts.” Atlee The Raiders are in a new conference (16) and have a new interim head coach, Ken Schrad. The also have a largely

new team, with 11 seniors who graduated last year. This year’s team is being built around six returning players. “Our outfield is all coming back,” Schrad said. “We’re pretty good out there with respect to Nabeel Gootee in right field, Andrew Foster … he’s our center fielder.” The Raiders are still looking for a starting left fielder, but

Lee-Davis The Confederates were one win away from reaching the Region 5A South tournament last year, losing to Douglas Freeman in a Conference 11 semifinal. This year, the Confederates have most of their starters back. But they have one significant change at the top. Tyler Johnson has replaced Kenny Lewis at head coach after Lewis stepped down after the end of last season. There should be no big change in philosophy for LeeDavis, though, as Johnson is a former player and former assistant for Lewis the past few years. “As far as the core values, we’re staying the same, because he was very successful,” Johnson said. “Anybody would want to have the career that he had.” The Confederates will be built around five seniors: Justin Sorokowski, who has committed to Florida State; Canon Lambert, Austin Morris, Russell Jenkins and Chip Granderson. Sorokowski will be potent on offense (.413 average) and will also be a big part of the LeeDavis pitching rotation, along

Hanover girls hope to get past Midlothian hurdle By Danny Polk For The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – One team stood in the way of Hanover’s quest for a girls tennis state championship in 2015: Midlothian. Four of the Hawk’s five losses came at the hands of the Trojans, including the Group 4A state title match at Liberty University in June. But things could be different this year. The Trojans will be without their top two players from last year’s state title team, including half of a state champion doubles tandem. Meanwhile, Hanover will have a nearly identical look – just one starter graduated from the Hawks’ roster. Hanover head coach Lindsey Hein will also benefit from a group of talented underclassmen that will add the depth she believes is needed to make another postseason run. “This is probably the deepest team I’ve ever had,” Hein said, “We are solid all the way down the lineup.” Back at the top spot in the Hawks lineup for the third season is senior Caroline Hare, a second team Richmond TimesDispatch All-Metro selection in 2015. Breanna Mouer, Mattie Moon, whose only losses last year were against Midlothian, will play Nos. 2 and 3. Brooke Kazelskis will start at No. 4. Hanover’s biggest shakeup comes at the bottom of the lineup where freshmen Madison Moore and Georgia Temple will compete for the No. 5 and 6 spots. “We are definitely stronger in the back part of our lineup this year with the freshman coming in,” Hein said. Hein sees doubles as an area that could make or break the to-do list in early season on singles these days, that when a championship caliber season, practices. they get to high school they just and has put it at the top of “Junior tennis is so focused don’t have the doubles experi-

ence,” she said. “That is definitely a goal of our season – to focus on the doubles and get better there.” While improving at doubles is a noble goal, the Hawks’ ultimate feat is a championship, which inevitably runs through its conference, region, and state foe, Midlothian. “Beating Midlothian will be a challenge, but we will definitely give them a run for their money,” Hein said. “We’ll have to work hard.” The other storyline in county girls tennis has been

one in the making, or perhaps more appropriately, in-training, for several years at Burkwood Swim and Racquet Club. A pair of Lee-Davis freshman, Casey Carnohan and Claire Davis, both daughters of teaching professionals at the local club, have practiced and competed against each other for years. Now, they will compete for one another in what head coach Nancy Sheridan thinks will be an improved season for the Confederates. The two newcomers, who are slated at Nos. 1 and 2, will

be tested by tough competition in Conference 11, which features the defending Group 5A team, singles, and doubles champions. Atlee and Patrick Henry will compete against one another in Conference 16 this season as they both continue to build with rosters full of underclassmen. On the boys’ side, Hanover will again be the county’s frontrunner after a 2015 season that came to an end with a regional semi-final loss to Jamestown. “The goal right now is giving ourselves at shot at the regional final,” head coach Bill Wheaton said. “We feel like we have the ability to improve on what we did last year based on what our team looks like and the other teams in the region.” Zach Palmer, a senior who qualified for the Group 4A state singles tournament last season, will top the Hawks lineup for the second straight season. A pair of Cole brothers, Turner and Morgan, will be staples in the lineup as well. True to the theme of the girls’ team, Wheaton is focusing on doubles play as he searches for the right doubles tandems as the start of the season approaches. “We are approaching the doubles lineup differently this year,” he said. “We’ve been going with different pairings to see if better chemistry can give us a little more success.” One of those combinations could be Palmer and Turner Cole, a duo that Wheaton thinks could see success. “They both have improved this year,” he said, “They push each other in practice and I think the results of that will start to show starting next week.” Atlee will have a pair of see TENNIS, pg. 39 


Acors should have no shortage of offense, with three returners who hit over .400 last year – Kaylyn Shepherd (.480), Mackenzie Wyatt (.449) and Erin Acors (.446) – and two, Emma Casey and Lauren Hughes, who hit over .300 (.387 and .381, respectively). Wyatt, who had a 2.400 ERA with 45 strikeouts and five walks last year, will anchor the pitching rotation this year.

leaving runners on base in scoring position,” Davis said. “That’s going to be key for us, getting those runs in when we need to.” Patrick Henry The Patriots made deep playoff runs the past few years with the help of their head coach, Shelby Foltz, and standout pitcher (and hitter), Candace Whittemore. This year, they have to start anew. Whittemore graduated and is now playing for Randolph-Macon. Foltz has moved on, and one of her assistants, Walter Pettus, has taken over as head coach. Pettus fields a young team, for the Patriots lost five other starters to graduation last year. It is a time for reloading and rebuilding, but the biggest hole in the lineup is that left by Whittemore. “It is never easy to fill the void of a pitcher and an offensive player of Candace Whittemore’s caliber,” Pettus said. “However, I think we have players who are very capable of filling that void.” At this point, Pettus envisions a pitching rotation anchored by a primary starter – who is yet to be determined. He has four players capable of earning that role: Charlotte Mitchell, Madison Carroll, Sarah Prunty and Olivia Sewell. All four are young: Prunty is a junior, Carroll is a sophomore, and Mitchell and Sewell are freshmen. Pettus is confident in the Patriots’ defensive abilities this season. Offense remains a question, however. “Balanced hitting throughout the lineup could be a weakness,” he said.

King William The area’s other team, King William, lost a player key to their two straight appearances in the Group 2A state final: pitcher Kayla Huffman, who graduated and is also playing for Radford. They also have a new coach – girls basketball coach Kerry Johnson is taking over for former co-coaches Barbara Baker and Kay Gammon. Huffman was a dominant pitcher – she led the Cavaliers to a win over Lee-Davis last year – and solid hitter who leaves a huge hole for Johnson to fill.

“Scoring the runs wins us games and what I’d like to focus on is scoring runs in the big games,” Acors said. “The big games are always so tight – low-scoring games. I’d like to stay consistent all through the lineup and put people in the right spots to push runs across the plate.”

this year,” said Hanover head coach Stephanie Acors. “We focus on offense a lot and figure out who’s going to manufacture runs for us in what part of the lineup.” She especially wants the Hawks to be able to produce runs when the season is on the line.

“That is probably the top hole that we have to fill, but we have a couple of young kids coming in,” Johnson said. “They’re not as good yet, but they’re getting there.” Those two young kids are junior Shannon Hott – a returning starter – and sophomore Jenna Evans. In some ways King William may benefit from Huffman’s graduation, as the team cannot relax and expect their pitchers to throw strikeouts all game long. They will have to stay sharp on defense and provide offense in support of whoever is on the mound. “Because we can’t depend on our pitching as much as in previous years, those girls are really going to have to be more at-bat conscious and more defensively sound,” Johnson said. “We may get six strikeouts [a game], but nothing like what we did when Kayla was on the mound.” Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

But head coach Sam Hart has a strong team coming back, including senior pitcher William Strong (4-3-1, .396 average) and sophomore shortstop/pitcher Hunter Hart (.400 average). Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

Reisenweaver, a defensive back and wide receiver for the Confederates, will play No. 1 singles. Head coach Jason Butler has his sights on a playoff spot in a very competitive Conference 11. Patrick Henry will look to improve on last season’s 59 record, and will likely see freshmen in the top part of its lineup. Danny Polk can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com.
