STOPS AT EVERY HOME IN TOWN

Parents voice support for 10-point grading scale By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local ASHLAND — When Hanover County School Board members met last month, they discussed the possibility of transitioning from the current grading scale to a 10-point system. Due to a lack of data regarding a possible switch, members took no action. A recent VCU-based study that officials hoped would supply that data did not achieve the desired results and made no recommendations.

Education Expo 2016 planned

Some parents took advantage of a public comment period last week to voice their support for the revised system of grading. Julie Stubblefield presented a petition signed by more than 800 individuals requesting that a committee be formed to study the feasibility of changing the current system. “I’m here tonight to urge the board to form a committee comprised of teachers, administrators and parents to review advantages and disadvantages of moving our county to a 10-point see GRADING, pg. 4

Fuel assistance applications being taken by Social Services ASHLAND — The Hanover County Department of Social Services is accepting applications for the Fuel Assistance Program. Fuel Assistance is a temporary program that helps eligible households with the costs of heating their homes. The amount that is received will not necessarily cover all of the winter heating costs but will be a supplement. Benefits are based on the availability of funds and the number of applications received within the state. In order to be eligible for fuel or utility assistance, your household’s income must be less than the maximum allowed for the number of people in the home, and you must be responsible for paying the heating bill. Applications will be processed as soon as

possible but no later than mid-December. Funds are sent directly to the vendor beginning the first week in January. Hanover’s share of this statewide allocation is limited. Applications for Fuel Assistance are available at the Hanover County Department of Social Services, 12304 Washington Highway, Ashland VA 23005 or 8475 Bell Creek Rd., Mechanicsville, VA 23116. You also can submit an Energy Assistance application online at www.commonhelp.virginia.gov, or you can call a Human Services Agent at 804-365-4100 to have an application mailed to you. A face-to-face interview is not required. Information submitted by Tom Harris, Hanover County public information officer.

HCSO, APD, Public Works join in drug take-back HANOVER – The Hanover County Sheriff ’s Office, in cooperation with Ashland Police Department and Hanover County Public Works, will be conducting a Prescription Drug Take-Back Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Mechanicsville Solid Waste Center at 7427 Verdi Lane in Mechanicsville and the Ashland Police Department at 601 England St. in Ashland. Those locations have been established as collection sites. This is a free service to Hanover County and Town of Ashland citizens. It is sponsored by the Drug Enforcement Administration Office of Diversion Control. Citizens can safely surrender their expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceuticals and medications — no questions asked, no identification required. These items include:  Prescription medications and over-the-counter solid dosage

medications (e.g., tablets, capsules, pills, etc.).  Liquid products, such as prescription cough syrups (please keep sealed in original container). The following are examples of items that will not be accepted:  Intra-venous solutions, injectables and needles.  Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.

several issues in Congress that have local implications. “It’s an honor and a privilege to be here today to update you on what’s going on in Washington.

In other matters, the board heard a report by a committee formed to study the possibility of eliminating mid-term and final exams. The group, comprised of educators, students, parents and interested citizens, studied the benefits and drawbacks of a system of testing that has been employed in schools for decades. “The instructional benefits of an exam are minimal,” said director of secondary education Bob Staley, who headed the focus group. He was joined by parents and teachers who supported the group’s recommendations. Hanover’s 2016 Teacher of the Year Kelly Pace noted that the elimination of the exams would allow more instructional time for students. In their estimation, the exams might have outlived their usefulness in a changing educational environment. The group suggested eliminating mid-term exams and replacing those half-days with full days of instruction. see GRADING, pg. 5

At right, Bob Staley, director of Secondary Education and Hanover 2016 Teacher of the Year Kelly Pace expressed their desire to eliminate mid-term exams.

In addition to the four days allotted for students to take exams, four additional days of preparation are required, representing a total of 16 days a year spent on exams.

Mid-terms under the new plan, if approved, would be eliminated in the next school year.

Should God and discipline return to our schools?

Dems: Where does Wittman stand?

By Melody Kinser Managing Editor My high school graduating class has a closed Facebook page, so I recently asked (to make sure my memories were correct) if we had a devotion/prayer and joined in unison in the Pledge of Allegiance every morning before classes started. The 60-year-old memory was working that day — I was right. Students were selected to read a devotion or say a prayer and lead the Pledge of Allegiance on the principal’s intercom system. As to my question, responses included one classmate noting that her elementary school had prayer before the day began, at lunch and before dismissal. When she got to junior high school, prayer was said at the start of the day and at lunch. “We turned out blessed and thankful,” she said.

Many social media posts claim that part of today’s problems in schools is the fact that God was removed. We also had discipline — as in paddles, not a “go sit in the corner time-out.” And, despite the lack of technology, nine out of 10 times parents knew about the incident before you arrived home. So, there were those consequences to face too. My question is: Should God and discipline be returned to the public school system? I’m sure there are some in our community that just screamed and possibly cursed me. The question is legitimate. Would returning prayer and discipline to the classroom reawaken something that may be missing? When children are being gunned down (no, I’m not anti-gun; I grew up in a home with pistols

and rifles owned by a member of the NRA), we need a solution. Are children being properly disciplined at home? Contributing columnist Jim Ridolphi recently wrote about taking away his kids’ smartphones as a method of punishment. In today’s world, I’m sure that hurts. Back in my day, losing landline phone (remember those?) privileges made the point. I do hope you’ll take the time to write a letter to the editor or send an email response to mkinser@ mechlocal.com. Your opinion matters. In closing, Nov. 8 is fast approaching. Mark your calendar, set your smartphone, put a post-it on your computer monitor, whatever reminder works for you. We have too much at stake.

A younger brother sings the praises of having an older sister By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist No one ever writes a column about their sister. I can only wonder at what the reasoning is behind that oversight but, perhaps, sisters are too often taken for granted or underappreciated. That is not the case pertaining to my sister and me for seldom a day goes by I don’t think of her and thank my lucky stars that I have more than

just a great friend — I have a wonderful sister. Having an older sister is an advantage that only younger brothers can explain, but everything in life is easier as a child when you are following a female sibling who’s more experienced ... and smarter. It also had its disadvantages. In high school, teachers would marvel at the difference between the two of us. While she was a straight-A

National Honor Society student, I was not as focused on my studies as a high school student. “Are you Rebecca Ridolphi’s brother?” many teachers would ask as I entered classes a couple of years after her. When I replied in the affirmative, they seemed amazed at my shortcomings when compared to her stellar record and straight-A report card. And even though we were on different sides of the academic land-

scape, we remained close and she never judged my misguided exploits or exposed my lack of aptitude. She often told me I was just as smart as her, but I knew that it was just an effort to build my confidence and instill a belief in myself. It wasn’t until years later that I realized that her subtle support was probably the difference in career and college choices that served me well for see SISTER, pg. 8

Fifty-five members of the Hanover Democratic Committee recentday signed a petition demanding to know if Republican Congressman Rob Wittman will continue to endorse Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump after the release of an Access Hollywood video showing Trump making disparaging, lewd and vulgar comments toward women. For the past several months, you have continued to wholeheartedly support Trump even after his repeated statements disparaging minorities, immigrants and women. Now, we demand to know if you will continue to champion him after a video clearly shows candidate Trump objectifying women and espousing aggressive sexual behavior toward women. Your campaign spokesman said that you “do not condone the objectification of women.” Our question is: Do you condone the man who embodies the objectification of women? Will you have the courage to disavow Trump, as some other Republican candidates have, or will you continue to go along to get along? We want to know the measure of your character; we already have the measure of Trump’s character, or more accurately put, the lack thereof. We will continue to forward Mr. Wittman additional names of those who sign the petition as they come online or sign in person at our upcoming events. “ I am quite sure Mr. Wittman will find that his constituents in Hanover County do not approve. It’s not the first time we’ve been in touch. We recently sent him a petition with 80 names of our members very concerned about Congressman Wittman’s delay in approving a clean bill for Zika funding; we were pleased to see that bill finally passed, but only after see LETTERS, pg. 8

Since then, this locally owned and operated business has continued to serve the community with its unique combination of caring and convenience.

All four facilities are under the personal direction of Charles D. Morehead, President. In a time of need, you can turn to Bennett Funeral Home with trust and confidence. It serves families of all faiths with personal service – before, during and after. There is a long tradition of professionalism and caring. One way in which Bennett cares for families is by offering a convenient and personalized pre-need program.

amount of foolishness through all of those emotions. For many years, I feared Rebecca’s kindness would result in someone taking advantage of her, or some fool mistaking her kindness for weakness. But all who encountered her quickly learned a quiet demeanor and subtle style did not equate to weakness or lack of intensity, and she quickly rose to the top of her field. Through the years, miles separated our families, but we still maintained that special brothersister relationship. She unashamedly claims me as her little brother, and I am glad to have her as my older and only sister. It’s also hard to believe that this month, my sister turns 70 years old. For me, that’s hard to accept and I often think of our time as kids as we played on the swings or played kickball. I doubt either of us will be duplicating those feats this October. As she gathers with her kids and grandchildren for the big celebration, my thoughts won’t be far away. For all the words of support, the love and kept promises, I’m eternally grateful to the best friend I’ve ever had in this world, my sister.

supporting Wittman. Wittman introduced the Accountability, Collaboration, and Transfer (ACT) now for veterans’ legislation, which includes measures to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits claim process and expedite veterans access to quality care. This set of bills includes the Veterans Choice Accountability Act (HR 3883), which would expand veteran access to nonVA medical care and establish a review of the VA’s implementation of the Veteran’s Choice program; and HR 3885, which would require a military doctor to be a part of the evaluation for service-connected disabilities. Wittman also is fighting for better transparency and accountability within the VA, and voted for Veterans Modernization Act

(HR 2556), which would direct the VA to report annually to Congress through the duration of 2016-2020 on its furnishing of hospital care, medical services, and improvement in these key areas. Lastly, on the many recent visits Wittman has made to Hanover Count where I have attended with him, I have found him to be very concerned about the citizens, has given straight answers to questions posed to him, has fully explained his voting record and discussed the $20 trillion deficit this country has and what must be done to bring it back under control.

Hilton Warner Goodwyn Jr., died October 6, 2016, at age 92. Born June 19, 1924, he grew up in Church Hill and Ginter Park, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Richmond. During World War II, he piloted B-24s, flying bombing raids on Germany across the Alps from Italy. For his service, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross. An accountant for Commonwealth Natural Gas, he had been forbidden

by his father to enter his real estate and mortgage business. Thus, at his father’s death, Hilton was suddenly thrust into complete management, with the added burden of an IRS audit of his father’s estate that resulted in a 16year Tax Court case, which was finally won. GOODWYN Under his leadership, Realty Industrial Loan Corporation, a regulated small loan company, found its niche in single-family first mortgages, instead of riskier second mortgages. He improved the Richmond Shopping Center, the western anchor of Carytown, with a Ukrop’s Supermarket (now Martin’s/Publix), Ellwood Thompson’s, Walgreen’s 5,000th drugstore and CVS. He built parking decks at

6th and Main and Cary Streets and developed and leased other building and parking facilities around the city. His private H & H Foundation funded charitable grants to individuals in need before transferring its assets to the Children’s Hospital in Richmond. In February, he gave $5 million to benefit the Better Housing Coalition, in honor of his parents. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Erline Goodwyn; daughter, Rebecca Faye Goodwyn of Asheville, North Carolina; son, David W. Goodwyn (Susan) of Hampton; stepdaughter, Beverly Presser (Erich) of Richmond; grandchildren, Abigail Hockett (Jim), Hannah Goodwyn, Joshua Goodwyn (Devon), Zachary Goodwyn and Rachel Goodwyn; and great-grandson, William Goodwyn.

Stop Hunger Now event slated Nov. 5 at L-DHS Contributed Report news@mechlocal.com MECHANICSVILLE — A quarter and four pennies is all you need to sustain a young child through the next three hours of his or her education. A quarter and four pennies won’t buy books or pencils or note paper or pay a teacher’s salary. But a quarter and four

pennies will offer a healthy breakfast or lunch so that the child can concentrate on the lessons being taught rather than the hunger in his or her stomach. A quarter and four pennies represents one of the founding ideas for Stop Hunger Now, a nonprofit organization foundsee HUNGER, pg. 15

er to assemble the nutrients into food packets that can be safely stored and distributed throughout the world. These gatherings are called packaging events. There is a local packaging event scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 5, at Lee-Davis High School in Mechanicsville. A number of organizations are joining the event with monetary donations and volunteers. The groups include: members of several local Rotary Clubs, students from the RandolphMacon College Rotaract Club (a college level Rotary affiliate), students from the Lee-Davis High School Interact Club (a high school level Rotary affiliate), Scouts (Boys and Girls), and other organizations.

Additional groups are invited to participate. This won’t be Lee-Davis High School’s first experience with a Stop Hunger Now Packaging event. Bob Rodgers, special education teacher and Interact Club sponsor, has worked with the Interact Club students to host these events in the past. A packaging event can be as small as 40 volunteers who can package about 10,152 meals in under two hours. Some packaging events have over a thousand volunteers and the number of meals packaged is measured in 6 figures. The goal for the Nov. 5 packaging event is 29,160-plus meals. In a packaging event, volunteers form an assembly process

Transportation improvements included a dedication of right-of-way (ROW) and construction of a public road to allow for a connection from Route One to Hill Carter Parkway. The proffer shall be implemented so long as certain conditions don’t negate the requirement. Such conditions included hardships due to topography, existence of wetlands that would inhibit construction, engineering concerns with environmental and storm water issues, and access concerns from Hanover FireEMS or the Ashland Police

In the past months, Wittman said he’s monitored the project in not only Hanover but also other counties affected to the north. “To me, the project is being done backwards,” Witman said. “They have come in with a bunch of plans that have concerned many people across these counties, and have created almost an impossible situation.” He said he would have preferred a process that

involved the citizenry first before plans were devised, a system that informed counties of potential costs or what could be required of localities to support the project. “None of those things were thought out, and they are going to be applying for federal money. I believe if there is not a situation where there is agreement across the board, then they shouldn’t make the application.” Wittman said his job is to make sure the DRPT (Department of Rail and Public Transpirtation) reflects you decision. “That’s my job ... to make sure we push back on anything that doesn’t serve

Catherine Widdick and her husband Bill, who are residents of Snead Street and have been living in Ashland since

1992, took the floor to share their issues with the Planning Commission. “It is a visual assault for us to have to look out our family room window every day and see a sign for McDonald’s, or Ace Hardware, or a plumber … or someone else. We did not move to Snead to have to look at advertising. If we wanted to look at that, we would have moved to Route 1,” she said. Ashland Little League receives a majority of its funding from its sponsors, large enough of a majority to where

if they were to lose their funding, there wouldn’t be any more Ashland Little League. Widdick approached commissioners once his wife had finished her statement, saying, “We certainly support little league, it’s great when spring comes and those little kids are out there, it’s almost like all America right there,” he said. He proposed a compromise, in that, while the season is in play, the signs should stay up. However, he said when the season ends they should be coming down.

the interest of the citizens of Hanover, Town of Ashland, Caroline County, City of Fredericksburg, Stafford and Spotsylvania.” Another local issue that requires an increasing portion of the county’s budget is new regulations regarding TMDL (Total Maximum Daily Load), or daily runoffs of pollutants that flow into the Chesapeake Bay. For the past couple of years, state grants and matching funds have assisted the county in meeting the requirements, implemented in states over 15 years with clear target goals in place to reduce levels. The measures require

upgrades in storm water management, runoff systems, water treatment and other improvements like creek bed restorations. As a former supervisor, Whitman empathized with the county’s position of accepting federal unfunded mandates, like the TMDL requirements that could cost the county up to $30 million. “First of all, where do we get the dollars?” Wittman asked. “Second of all, we’re being asked to do things that really haven’t been proven out to result in the things they want.” Requiring farmers and citizens to spend dollars to meet requirements that are unprov“When the season ends, those signs don’t come down,” referring to how he was forced to look at an Ace Hardware sign all last winter.

Peebles said he wanted to work with the town and the residents of Snead Street to figure out a solution everyone can agree to, explaining to commissioners that the money coming from these sponsors allows children in the local community to play baseball. Without the sponsors’ funding for the baseball team, children in the Ashland community won’t have a baseball team to join.

Raiders’ last-minute heroics net upset win By Billy Fellin Richmond Suburban News MECHANICSVILLE – Just before a crucial fourth-and-9 from the Atlee 28-yard line, the Raiders called a timeout. Atlee coach Matt Gray gathered his offense and prepared them for the next play. “I said ‘You’ve just got to be smart,’ ” he said. “ ‘Keep your composure and do your job.’ ” The Raiders did just that and more when Connor Young found a wide open Queshon Baker for a 72-yard touchdown with 1:16 on the clock –enough to boost Atlee past No. 10 Henrico 28-25 on homecoming night. “This is awesome,” Gray said. “These kids have been fighting and battling and not getting the outcome that we wanted. We had a good week of practice and kept talking about composure, discipline and doing things the right way. If we did those things, we’d win the football game. And we did, those guys executed. I’m proud as heck of these guys.” Baker, who was able to get behind double coverage on the final scoring play, had 112 receiving yards and the touchdown for the Raiders. The matchup didn’t have the feel of one that would go down to the wire early on as the defenses dominated. Henrico scored first when Warriors quarterback Jalon

TOANO – Ward Wilkinson and the Hanover Hawks made history for the school – being the first Hawk team to qualify for a state golf championship tournament, but Wilkinson would have liked to make a little bit more history in the closing minutes of the VHSL Group 4A tournament on Oct. 11 at Stonebridge Golf Club. Wilkinson played solid golf both days of the tournament, posting the low score Monday and going into the clubhouse at the end of team play Tuesday still in the lead with a two-day score of 141.

Varina dominates youthful Hanover squad Despite the bleak statistics, Stoudt is optimistic about the future. “We’re in the process of putting together a new core group of young men, a group like the one that graduated last year,” he said. “We’re going to take the lessons we learned here tonight and the experiences we had as a team, and hold on to them for the years to come.” Andrew Spencer can be reached at sports@mechlocal. com.

By Andrew Spencer for the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – It was not the homecoming celebration Hanover fans were hoping for. The Hanover squad, which lost 19 seniors from last year’s squad, were outgunned when they hosted Varina Friday night. And it showed as the Blue Devils dominated the Hawks in a 41-0 shutout victory over the hosts. The Hawks have struggled all season. “We graduated the core group of a very successful team from last year,” said Hanover head coach Derek Stoudt. “That was a group of players who had been together for a very long time, and we’re missing that experience this year.” The Blue Devils’ offense amassed 465 total yards, while their defense held the Hawks to 121 yards. Hanover’s offensive problems were compounded by the loss of starting quarterback Clayton Cheatham to injury in the first quarter. Stoudt wouldn’t speculate as to the extent of Cheatham’s injury. The Blue Devils didn’t emerge unscathed from this game either. On the first play from scrimmage in the first quarter – an off-tackle run by Hanover’s Ben Mahone – Varina

free safety David Daniels went to the ground in obvious pain. He was taken off on a stretcher by paramedics. The Varina defense, however, stepped up following Daniels’ exit, forcing a Hanover three-and-out. The Blue Devils only needed five plays after the Hanover punt to get on the scoreboard. The drive was high-

lighted by an 82-yard run by Varina running back C. J. Jones, who reached the 100-yard rushing mark with 6:30 remaining in the first quarter. Jones finished with 211 yards on 18 carries. “When you play a lot of young people like we were forced to tonight, it’s a doubleedged sword,” Stoudt said. “On

the one hand, you’re playing inexperienced players. But on the other, you’re giving those players experience for the future.” Sophomore Tyler Elrod took over running the Hanover offense after Cheatham was injured. Elrod found himself under intense pressure from the Blue Devils defense. He was

sacked once while completing eight of 21 passes for 61 yards. Hanover struggled on the ground, too, gaining just 60 yards on 23 carries. Despite the defeat, Stoudt praised the team’s character. “We went through a lot adversity in this game,” Stoudt said. “But we kept fighting and the kids kept getting after it.”

who got open on a slant route to score. Henrico scored again when Jones – who accounted for most of the Warriors’ offense, throwing for 286 yards and three scores running for 88 yards – connected with Robert Joseph for a 42-yard touchdown. The Raiders then scored with a 35-yard strike from Young to Derrick Mills. Mills caught his second

touchdown pass from Young from 7-yards to put the Raiders up 20-19, but a 26-yard pass from Jones to Carter gave the Warriors a five-point lead, 2520, and set up the heroics of Young and Baker. Young and Warren have split snaps up to this point in the season, but Warren left the game injured and Young took the reins from there. “We got (Young) some reps

this season and he had two really good weeks of practice,” Gray said. “Tyler brings the dimension of the run game for us. It’s good to have. I keep telling everyone, these two quarterbacks, the character of these guys and the way they embrace the challenge and stick up for each other … it’s a beautiful thing to witness.” Gray noted that coming into the game, Henrico only allowed,

on average, 7.3 points per game and averaged 38 points per game on offense. “That’s the challenge I put in front of the kids,” he said. The win improves Atlee’s record to 3-4 this season and keeps the Raiders’ playoff hopes alive. However, the schedule doesn’t get any easier for them as they will travel to Patrick Henry Friday. “It’s huge. We’ve got some

Suliman, Northcutt claim Milestat victories By Dylan Garner Richmond Times-Dispatch MECHANICSVILLE – A poorly timed cramp was the last obstacle in Douglas Freeman senior Waleed Suliman’s way as he raced to the finish of the MileStat.com XC Invitational. It wasn’t enough to stop the fastest race of his career – or the fastest cross country race by a Richmond high schooler. With a time of 14:49, Suliman claimed school, course and all-time area records with a victory in the boys varsity ‘A’ race at Pole Green Park on Saturday morning. “I came in with 15 meters to go, and I saw the clock, and I was like ‘Yes, I’m going to make it,’ ” he said. “It was amazing. I didn’t know what to do.” Cosby sophomore Rachel Northcutt added a victory in the girls varsity ‘A’ race in 17:35, claiming back-to-back titles at the state’s largest invitational. “It was exhilarating. ... It was kind of shocking. I was coming down the finish, and I was like, ‘I’m doing it again.’ ” Fifteen minutes has been a target for Suliman all season. With only two races (and two victories) for Suliman this season, coach Brian Reutinger wanted to make sure he approached the race aggressively. According to Reutinger, he had “raced to win” in his previous efforts, but he wasn’t running away with victories to the degree he was capable of, which was the only way he was going to hit his goal Saturday. “We race so few times that every time we race, we want him getting something out of it besides just winning,” Reutinger said. “So we prepped him over the course of the week to get out, be aggressive and be tough.” Through the first 4,600 meters, Suliman was aggressive

as directed. He led the entire way, distancing himself from his competition by the second mile with some audible gasps and wows from the crowd. The last 400 meters tested his toughness. The lead cart cleared the way for Suliman’s final sprint, but the cramp created resistance between him

and the records he sought. But when he knew he had the time he needed, he raised his two index fingers in the air in celebration as he crossed the finish line. Suliman said he tried to change the now familiar pose in the moment, which turned out to be his only failure of the day.

The previous record by a Richmond-area high school runner in a 5K was by St. Christopher’s Charles Alexander at the 1981 Kinney Nationals in Orlando, Fla., finishing in 14:51.90. Just more than two years ago, Suliman, now with an arguable claim to the title of the area’s all-

time greatest high school cross country runner, could barely speak English and had raw, untrained running ability. Saturday was a proud moment for the senior, whose American journey continues to grow by the week. “It’s absolutely awesome. Like I told you before, Richmond is now my new hometown, and I’m proud to make it a little better, faster. ... I’m proud it is my hometown,” Suliman said. “For records, I’m happy about it. I’m not gonna lie about that.” In the girls race, Deep Run’s Lily Snow pushed the tempo early, leading Northcutt by a couple of steps by the first mile. The Northcutt took over the lead by the time she reentered the course’s straightaway approaching the two-mile point. She fended off a trio of seniors, including Glen Allen’s Caroline Robelen, through the

end. Last year’s victory, the first in her high school career, was on her mind as Northcutt made the last steps to the finish line, flourishing a wide smile. She dedicated the race to her grandmother, who has been fighting lung cancer for the past three months. With the thought of her grandmother pushing her throughout the race, Northcutt is excited to tell her the result. “She’s a motivation to me,” Northcutt said. “She’ll be very happy.” In the team standings, Deep Run – led by Bashir MosavelLo’s fifth-place finish – finished runner-up in the boys race. Cosby, led by Northcutt, placed third overall in the girls race. Lee-Davis competed in the varsity ‘A’ races. The Confederate boys finished 13th and the Confederate girls finished 24th. Jack Ikenberry was Lee-Davis’ best finisher, coming in 14th out of 295 runners in the boys ‘A’ race in 15:37. Desirae Horsley was the Confederates’ highest girls finisher with a 19:34 time. Atlee’s boys finished second and Patrick Henry’s boys finished 24th in the varsity ‘B’ race. The Raiders were led by Connor Moses (eighth place in 16:30) and Kameron Helmlinger (11th place in 16:37). Patrick Henry’s Noah Campbell finished 14th in 16:42. Hanover’s girls finished 21st and Atlee’s girls finished 24th in their varsity ‘B’ race. Rachel Crytser led the Hawks with a 16th-place finish in 19:51. Laney Owen led the Raiders’ girls with a 21:22 finish. Hailey Draper led a small Patrick Henry contingent with a 22:31 finish.

HIGHLAND SPRINGS – Highland Springs was feeling its way early on offensively, but now the Springers seem to be feeling pretty good about the way things are going. No. 4 Highland Springs rolled up 471 yards of offense, got three touchdowns from sophomore running back Shy’Re McKeiver, two touchdown passes from quarterback Juwan Carter and beat LeeDavis 49-21 on Friday. The total could have been bigger had several plays not been negated by penalties in a game that included some chippiness. Since an 8-7 upset loss to Meadowbrook, the Springers (6-1) have outscored their past four opponents 205-31. “There was some immaturity early on,” said Highland Springs coach Loren Johnson, whose team had to replace several playmakers from last year’s state title team. “Guys understand what we need to do and what we need to do to be successful. Coaches, players, everybody had to manage things a little bit better. We kind of needed the loss to wake us up a little bit.” Carter injured his knee in that game but hasn’t shown any lingering effects. He completed 13 of 20 passes for 196 yards, with touchdown passes to James Jackson and Isaiah Winstead.

Lee-Davis Jamon Coffey (20) is hit by Highland Springs’ Billy Kemp in the Springers’ 46-21 victory over the Confederates Friday.

He was intercepted once. “The difference is togetherness,” said Carter. “At first, everybody was playing for themselves. Now we’re playing as a team. “That loss, when I got hurt in the Meadowbrook game, it kind of shook everybody up. Everybody was expecting me to make plays and get people the ball. Now everybody really is a

playmaker.” The Springers unleashed a new one in McKeiver, who ran for 122 yards on 12 carries in his first start. Johnson said McKeiver averaged 20 yards on his carries last week, so he informed him Thursday he would be in the lineup. “I was so excited,” McKeiver said. “I did good, but I’ve got more room for improvement.”

Said Johnson: “Our kids have to be patient here. We have several kids who can run the ball. When we give him the ball, he’s always done a good job.” Carter’s 3-yard run put Highland Springs ahead 28-7 with 4:37 left in the first half. Lee-Davis (5-2) took advantage of Jamon Coffey’s interception deep in Highland Springs territory to cut the Springers’ lead

R-MC beats W&L to stay unbeaten in ODAC By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor ASHLAND – RandolphMacon’s women’s volleyball squad may be young, but the Yellow Jackets proved they were resilient when they hosted Washington & Lee in a battle of two squads who were undefeated in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. With less than an hour to go before the contest, former Hanover High School standout Miranda Hall took a ball to the head during warmups and was put on concussion protocol, forcing head coach Bill Rogers to change his lineup for the evening. While the team got off to a slow start as the women adjusted to the changes, they soon found their footing and rolled to a 2125, 30-28, 25-20, 25-17 victory over the Generals in Crenshaw Gymnasium Wednesday night. “We’ve been sick. … We’ve had two concussions this week. We’ve had starters go out with ankles – and someone else steps up. It’s just next woman up,” Rogers said. “This is the most resilient team I’ve ever seen. Different players … find a way to make it happen. Taking Miranda out loses four points a set right off the bat, so someone’s got to step in and make up those four points.”

One of those who stepped up was outside hitter Kai Cunningham, who finished with 14 kills. She came on stronger as the match went on. “I was ready to put on a strong face and bring some energy to the court,” said Cunningham. “I think it took a little bit to warm up. I was a little nervous in the beginning, but my teammates are awesome. They really helped get through this, get rid of the freshman jitters.” Erin Quinn had four kills, 47 assists and nine digs for Randolph-Macon (15-4, 7-0 ODAC). The Yellow Jackets’ other statistical leaders were Mariah Clark (13 kills, seven digs), Emily Fitzwater (nine kills), Rebecca McGilvery (18 kills, 11 digs), Samantha Sallade (23 digs) and Rachel Wyatt (13 digs). Former Lee-Davis standout Anna Soroka was one of the Generals’ highlight players, finishing with five kills and 17 assists. She was excited to play before a home-county crowd for the first time as a college player. “It was awesome,” Soroka said of the experience. “Just driving on the same route I take back home was really fun.
