MRMC at 20: ‘taking care of neighbors’ By Melody Kinser Managing Editor

ECHANICSVILLE – “We’re taking care of our neighbors.� That’s how Mark Gordon, chief executive officer of Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center, describes the hospital’s role as they prepare to celebrate 20 years of serving the community. Community is a word Gordon uses often, because he is quick to praise the support shown for the medical center. He also talks about his appreciation for the EMS providers and first responders, as well as “our nurses, our medical staff and our community.� “We are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year, and in two short decades Memorial Regional is one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation. We take with deep gratitude and sincerity the

RICHMOND – Bon Secours Health System, VCU Health and Virginia Premier announced on Monday, May 7, that they had formed a new partnership to bring more options in 2019 to patients insured on the Affordable Care Act health insurance exchange in Central Virginia. Pending approvals from the Virginia Bureau of Insurance and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, these plans will be offered in areas served by providers from Bon Secours Richmond Health System, as well as from VCU Health System. “Care for the commonwealth is fundamental to our mission across the VCU Health System enterprise, including our Virginia Premier health plan. It also is a value we share with Bon Secours, and so are pleased to partner with them again in this effort to provide a means for many of our citizens to access quality health care when and where they need it,” said Deborah Davis, CEO of VCU Health Hospitals and Clinics. “The last year has been a difficult one for Virginians who rely on the individual market for health coverage,” said Linda Hines, CEO of Virginia Premier. “Three of the four insurance plans on the 2017 exchange pulled out of the exchange for 2018, which resulted in fewer care options for tens of thousands of Virginians. This new partnership brings back options and flexibility for people who want to continue care with providers at VCU Health

Dr. Joseph Elrod, Jr. and Dr. Bryson Dunham are excited to provide their patients with “gentle dental care” in a comfortable and relaxed environment. As they stay focused on the most current trends and technologies, they are proud to offer:

economy. Sumner reported updated figures for the third quarter of the current fiscal year, a period that ended March 31 and included reports on the General Fund, Public Utilities and the School Operating Fund. Revenues for the General Fund continue to show a positive trend with this year’s third quarter figures approximately $5 million ahead of last year’s figures for the same period. “Based on the current revenues and future collection estimates, total year revenues are expected to be about $235.9 million or approxi-

“significant population” in Hanover County, noting the aging population in the Richmond-area continues to grow overall. That brings him back to the need for nurses, which he said “is high; the demand is high. We look forward to the number of graduates out of our nursing school, and to retain those graduates.” Gordon extends an invitation to local residents to

take advantage of the College of Nursing. He said he has a “hope that we can clearly work to get as many people locally who seek a vocation in nursing to be a part of that honorable profession.” When asked about the successes enjoyed by MRMC, he said, “You do very few things alone, so I would say that the team, meaning, most importantly, the frontline nurses and technician, along with

our medical staff. The greatest achievement is that we are recognized for high quality outcomes.” Memorial Regional has been named to Healthgrades’ America’s 50 Best Hospitals’ Award for five years (20142018) in a row. The hospital has been the recipient of the Healthgrades’ America’s 50 Best Hospitals’ Award for seven years (20122018) in a row.

Additionally, MRMC received Healthgrades’ Distinguished Hospital Award for Clinical Excellence for 12 years (2007-2018) in a row. “The most important accomplishment of the team and myself is the continuation of high quality care,” Gordon added. “That is a role that we take with high regard and deep seriousness.” He views MRMC as “a

referral center to the Northern Neck and all points east in particular. We honor our relationship with all the communities east to serve for primary and higher levels of care.” Rappahannock General Hospital in Kilmarnock is part of the Bon Secours Health System. “We are a destination point,” Gordon continued,

mately $1million above the appropriated budget,” Summer told the supervisors last week. Property tax revenues are expected to increase by $7 million for the year, still about $250,000 short of budget projections. “Other local taxes are projected to exceed the budget by about 1.5 million,” Sumner said. Expenditures for the year also are under budget. Final year projections indicate about $277 million for those budgeted items, about $6 million less than the appropriation. The total projected General Fund operating balance is $7 million, monies that will be used for reinvestment in the FY2019 county and

school budgets. The Public Utilities portion of the equation reflected lower revenues, including charges for services that amount to more than $1 million. That shortfall is largely due to the Bear Island closing and budget adjustments have been approved to address this issue in the FY2019 budget. School expenditures also are projected to be below budget, and Sumner said the system is on track to return about $2.6 million to the county at the end of the fiscal year. In other matters, Director of Public Works Mike Flagg provided an update on Atlee Station Road improvements. “To date, we have worked on Atlee Station Road in incremental components, and that’s not unlike what we do on many of our roads,” Flagg

said. Flagg said one of the drawbacks of that methodology is the difficulty in predicting per mile actual costs, and the constantly rising price of construction projects. Shifting entrances along Atlee Station Road or widening current corridors are components of the project, according to Flagg. Flagg also addressed other improvements associated with the project, including a signal at Honey Meadows and an access road from Chickahominy Middle School. During a recent board meeting, a citizen expressed opposition to the use of proffer funds to construct the school access road. Flagg said that access road project was the result of citizen and school involvement

and addresses safety concerns and the impact school traffic has on Atlee Station Road. He added that the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) required that the access road be approved before they would approve the signal at Honey Meadows and Atlee Station Roads. Since revenue sharing is no longer available to fund local road projects, the county turned to proffers from Honey Meadows to fund the access road. “It’s our view that this particular access road is no different from us realigning the entrances or when a project is widened – it’s an appropriate nexus to Atlee Station Road widening,” Flagg said. “We feel like it was appropriate to use proffer funds for that portion of the road.”

Bids for that project are completed and a contract awarded with a completion date of late summer anticipated. Completion of the signal is less clear. Flagg pointed to difficulties in obtaining signal poles as a delaying factor in the project. “There’s as much as a sixmonth lead time in getting the poles from the manufacturer,” Flagg said, indicating that could delay the goal of having the light installed by the opening of school in the fall. Honey Meadows resident Bob Nelson raised questions regarding the appropriateness of using proffer funds for these projects at last month’s board meeting. Supervisors extended an invitation for Nelson to speak at its next meeting scheduled for Wednesday, May 23.

From the editor

Did you thank your teacher last week? By Melody Kinser Managing Editor PTA Teacher Appreciation Week was observed May 7-11, with an emphasis placed on acknowledging those dedicated individuals who go above and beyond for their students. The national PTA website said, “Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extend far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.” I’m amazed by the devotion and perseverance of those in the education field for their commitment to providing a strong base for the future. Two teachers influenced me even though neither had any impact on my career. Their guidance and support made the difference. One was my fifth grade teacher, while the other taught Spanish.

Their compassion with their students was evident in how they approached the subjects they taught. I had the good fortune in the late 1990s or early 2000s to encounter my Spanish teacher at the post office in my hometown. It was an unforgettable moment because I had the opportunity to tell her what her encouragement had done, and led to a path no one would have expected, especially me. Three years in her Spanish class were enlightening in terms of how a room filled with young minds absorbed her methods. She was the epitome of a teacher. A small woman, she was soft-spoken but held the attention of every student. She truly led by example. She kept up with my career and that moment at the post office sadly proved to be the last time I would see her. She was moving to

another state to be with family in her retirement. She had urged me to study languages at Marshall University. I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had taken her advice. That’s just the kind of teacher she was -- always thinking of what she thought would be best for the student in an adult world. Hanover County Public Schools is blessed with many similar teachers and administrators. While last week was designated in appreciation of them, you should remember every day the sacrifices they make to ensure a better future for every child in our county. We have an acclaimed school division for a reason -- and it does start in the classroom. To all teachers -- public, private and home -- thank you!

Name change means scouting for the masses By Jim Ridolphi Contributing Columnist

After more than 100 years, the Boy Scouts of America is changing its name. The new version is Scouts BSA, a name that seems even more confusing or immediately obsolete than the well-worn and recognizable mantra. It shouldn’t surprise any of us that the announcement was accompanied by a predictable dose of outrage with

one commentator exclaiming “it’s the end of another American institution.” Honestly, they are not upset with the name change per se; it’s the organization’s decision to admit girls to its troops and a previous decision to allow gays into the ranks. The name change was the final insult in a triad of unpopular decisions for many who support the organization’s original mission to pro-

vide outdoor and character-building experiences for young boys. It doesn’t escape my sense of inequity that the words of that mission were written in a period when women were not allowed to vote. But, I get the insistence that some things should be preserved, and old rules are not always obsolete. I had no preconceived opinion on the name change, or the additions to

the ranks, so I thought back to my days as a scout. As I recalled my days as a just barely First Class scout at Troop 744, a barrage of great memories spent on camping trips or jamborees swirled in my head. At the time, I remember the scoutmaster telling us we were learning lessons that would last a lifetime. It didn’t see SCOUTING, pg. 7

Sanctuary City leaders violate federal law The Left is as strident as ever on Sanctuary Cities for illegal aliens. They gloss over the “supremacy clause,” which assigns certain functions of government only to Washington. They fail to take into account the optics of such attempts at resistance in the past. Some on the Left point out that secession was illegal and all Confederates were traitors. More recently, many communities in the South resisted integration orders by closing all public schools. Whether the Left likes it or not, the leaders of those cities who affirmatively impede federal authorities from enforcing federal law are just as much in violation of federal statute as the Confederates of yore and the resistance to school integration. If the courts rule against the Justice Department that localities can declare themselves sanctuaries from federal laws they don’t like, the Left will soon rue that day. Let’s say, in the hopefully distant future, the Democrats take the presidency and both houses of Congress and they pass gun control and confiscation. Hanover, or some similar pro Second Amendment county, could declare itself a sanctuary for gun owners with the sheriff and commonwealth’s attorney refusing to provide data to the federal authorities to do their job. Muleshoe, Texas could declare itself a sanctuary town from whatever remains of Obama Care. Before the Left gets too carried away with resisting existing immigration law, they should mind what they wish for. The shoe could be on the other foot and then what would they do?

seem like that at the time, as we swam that dreaded mile, or cooked that full meal on an open fire, or performed countless other tasks required to earn merit badges, we had a blast. I was first exposed to cooking when our scoutmasters required us to assist in meal preparation. My first hikes were enjoyed with my fellow scouts, as well as my first, and, hopefully, last fall off White Oak Falls near Big Meadows. And, sure, there was plenty of foolishness along the way, but still lessons could be learned. Trying to avoid older scouts cutting the lines on your tent instilled a lasting reminder of the value of unity as our group of younger scouts fought back by releasing their canoes into Buggs Island Lake. The memories brought a

smile to my face as I remembered countless good times spent on Old Rag Mountain or Brady Saunders. Upon completion, I couldn’t think of a single activity that wouldn’t, shouldn’t or couldn’t be enjoyed by young girls, or why those same lessons should be reserved for males only. Now, scouting is not for everyone, and I can’t say I enjoyed all those merit badge challenges, but I do believe that the great experience of spending time in the great outdoors with responsible leadership is an opportunity that should be available to all. I also came to the conclusion that the idea of young boys and girls spending time in team-building exercises that highlight self-reliance and independence is probably an idea that has come of age. Besides, why should girls be denied the pleasure of a midnight snipe hunt?

ASHLAND â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mark Maphis of Fin & Feather Pet Center of Ashland wants to see more pets adopted into forever homes. He said he believes that there is an untapped opportunity to increase these numbers through the Ashland Strawberry Faire. Although animal rescue groups have participated at the Faire in the past, they are usually scattered throughout the Faire grounds. Unless you study the official Faire map, you may miss rescue groups. By sponsoring a centralized BARKing Lot, Maphis hopes adoptable dogs will be showcased more effectively to the thousands of guests who come to the Faire. The BARKing Lot will be housed at the RandolphMacon College Welcome Center parking lot at England and Henry Streets.

Dominion volunteers provide helping hand at Ashland ‘Y’ By Jim Ridolphi for The Mechanicsville Local

ASHLAND -- Employees of Dominion Energy are no strangers when it comes to community service, and each year volunteers donate thousands of hours by participating in the company’s Energizing Communities program. Last week, a group of Dominion workers took time to construct a low ropes course at the Patrick Henry YMCA in

Ashland. The course is a new addition to the Y’s summer camp program and will be ready for this season’s campers. According to one Dominion employee, last week’s project was a group effort, a recurring theme in the company’s community involvement. “Dominion Energy has a very active volunteer council,” said Dominion volunteer Lynn Chaffin, who also serves on the

board of the Ashland YMCA. “All employees are encouraged to go out and get involved in projects like this in our local community,” Chaffin added. “We thought it would be a great idea for us to come out and get involved in this project today.” Dominion donated $2,500 to cover the costs of the materials needed for the ropes course, and the volunteers provided the sweat equity.

eight hours to volunteer on a project like this and most of these people do five or six events a year,” Chaffin added. For the YMCA, it’s an opportunity to expand opportunities for its popular summer camp program that is a col-

laborative effort with the Atlee YMCA. Jamie McClure, director of the Patrick Henry Y, said the project adds another exciting activity for this year’s campers. “We’ve never had a low ropes course at Patrick Henry so it’s amazing what happens when a community comes together like today,” she said. “We are very excited for our kids who will experience the team-building and build confidence as they participate on this course,” she added. The summer program serves children from all districts in Hanover County, and McClure said it’s a unique and exciting experience for many of the kids. “We serve some kids who have never seen a swimming pool, let alone being able to participate in a low ropes obstacle course,” she said. Holly Austin of the Atlee Station Y said the program identifies kids from Hanover in an effort to offer the program to children who might not have access to summer programs. “We work together to serve kids who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to get the camp experience,” she said. “We work with our local guidance counselors to help us locate the families in our community who need these services.” Transportation is provided from the Atlee Station Y, and campers take swimming lessee DOMINION, pg. 19

Richmond were recognized with an “A” Hospital Safety Grade, a standard measure of patient safety, by The Leapfrog Group in their Spring 2018 Hospital Safety Grades. These facilities were among only 30 percent of hospitals nationwide to receive the “A” grade. The Leapfrog Group is a nonprofit organization com-

mitted to driving quality, safety, and transparency in the U.S. health care system. Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grades of A, B, C, D and F are assigned to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals across the nation twice annually, once in the fall and once in the spring. Each of these facilities received an “A” grade in the fall of 2017 as well, sustaining top-

notch performance over time. The grade represents a hospital’s overall performance in keeping patients safe from preventable harm and medical errors. The Safety Grade includes 27 measures, all currently in use by national measurement and reporting programs. “Patient safety has always been and will always be a top

priority for Bon Secours,” said John McCurley, M.D., chief medical officer of Bon Secours Richmond Health System. “Our hospitals are a trusted part of the greater Richmond community and we pledge to honor the trust of our patients by being transparent about our progress and working toward the highest possible standard of safety.”

The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is calculated by top patient safety experts, is peer-reviewed and fully transparent and free to the public. To see Bon Secours Richmond’s detailed scores, as well as individual hospital grades and state rankings, visit the Hospital Safety Grade website at www.hospitalsafetygrade.org.

Master Gardener Training open house to be held Monday

MECHANICSVILLE -- Do you love gardening? Do you enjoy helping others learn? Do you feel a commitment to community service in Hanover? If so, take part in the Master Gardener Course. Master Gardeners are trained community leaders working with individuals to increase knowledge and understanding of environmentally sound horticulture. They seek to improve the quality of life in their communities through education. Master Gardeners are specially trained by Virginia Cooperative Extension which is a group of Specialist and Extension Agents who extend knowledge of Virginia’s Land Grant Universities: Virginia Tech and Virginia State. The 2018 course offers two separate fee categories: (1) Traditional Master Gardener includes 50 hours of volunteer service before MG status is achieved and volunteer service thereafter. The fee is $125, payable after acceptance into the program. (2) For individuals interested in increasing their horticulture skills and knowledge but who do not intend to volunteer, the fee is $225, payable after acceptance into the program.

Hanover takes advantage of C-fed miscues By Rob Witham For the Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – Despite their slow start this season, Hanover’s baseball team is getting into position to make yet another deep postseason run. Showing an important sign of a team experienced with success, Hanover took advantage of a shaky start by the Lee-Davis defense, eventually turning a 2-0 first inning lead into a 7-2 victory Friday to improve to 9-5 on the season. “That was a big relief, because we didn’t swing the bats too well. To get two runs was a blessing,” said Hanover head baseball coach Charlie Dragum. “We’re, I think, far from a finished product. We make too many mistakes still.” Hanover mistakes Friday paled in comparison to the Confederate miscues. In the opening frame, a throw to first base on a simple grounder to pitcher Jake Stanley went awry, allowing Hawk starting pitcher Jack Dragum to reach base and move to second. Nick Zona then singled to score Dragum, stole second, then scored when Michael Warley’s grounder to third was missed by Braden Lambert. Two Lee-Davis errors, two Hanover runs – a young team at home can’t afford such gifts to an experienced foe.

Rob Witham for The Local

Hanover second baseman Will Bowles returns to first as Lee-Davis’ Trey Karnes waits to apply the tag in the first inning of the Hawks’ 7-2 victory over the host Confederates Friday. With the win, Hanover improved to 9-5 on the season.

“You want to come out, throw a zero on the board and have some momentum, and we were well on our way to doing that, then we gave them runs”, said Lee-Davis head coach Tyler Johnson. “A good team like that, you can’t hand them runs. We did, and then Jack’s

tough on the mound.” Dragum went six innings, shutting out Lee-Davis until the sixth when the Confederates (10-8) scored their two runs thanks to a double from Carter Trice to drive home Nick Evans and an error by Camden Grimes on a ground ball to

third that allowed Jack Rice to come home. Dragum ended the rally with a pair of strikeouts to strand two Lee-Davis runners, finishing the night with five strikeouts, four walks, and just two hits allowed. Eric Anderson struck out two of the three batters he faced

in the seventh to close out the Hawk win.. Part of the reason for Hanover’s success was the ability to overcome some mistakes of its own. A first-inning error allowed Rice to reach base for Lee-Davis, but, two outs later, he was caught trying to steal

second by Warley to end the inning. The Confederates got two runners on base in the third when the score remained 2-0, but a strikeout and fielder’s choice again quelled their threat. When Hanover responded with three fourth-inning runs thanks to four singles, two stolen bases and another Confederate error, the mountain became too tall to climb. Both coaches see opportunity, as well as concern, for their teams in this the final week of the regular season. Lee-Davis is all but assured a berth in the Region 5B tournament which begins May 25, but it will be on the road in the quarterfinal round. Hanover, in the new Region 4B, has no idea what seed, and how many games, await them in their quest to again clinch a return to the Group 4 state tournament. For the moment, Johnson and Dragum are both focused with not just the next game, but the next practice, any chance to draw their respective squads closer together. “They’re working at it, and I hope they figure out what ails them,” Dragum explained when asked about his approach to the upcoming playoffs. “It comes to having good practices and wanting to be there. It seems sometimes we’re kind of going

Randolph-Macon gets NCAA baseball berth were there and who would like to go a bit further this year. That experience wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it any easier for them to do so, however. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody we play now is good,â&#x20AC;? Hedrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping is that our experience in the [ODAC] and the teams that we play in the league, will prepare us for success at the regional level because our league is extremely strong.â&#x20AC;? Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

By Dave Lawrence Sports Editor Randolph-Macon stumbled to take an early out from the Old Dominion Athletic Conference baseball tournament, but the Yellow Jackets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who went into the tournament ranked No. 1 in the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Collegiate Baseball Poll and the Massey Ratings â&#x20AC;&#x201C; still have some baseball to play. The Yellow Jackets dropped a 9-7 decision to Shenandoah in the first round of the ODAC tournament â&#x20AC;&#x201C; held at City Stadium in Lynchburg â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Friday and were eliminated by Roanoke 6-5 Saturday. But they still earned an atlarge bid to the NCAA Division III baseball tournament and will be the top seed in the South Regional in Holly Springs, North Carolina. They will open against LaGrange Thursday at 11 a.m. at Ting Park, home of the Coastal Plain Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holly Springs Salamanders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew going into the [ODAC] tournament â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if that was the reason why we played the way we did or if we just got beat by better teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that our body of work throughout the course of the year had put us in a strong position at the regional level,â&#x20AC;? said Randolph-Macon head coach Ray Hedrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been common for us to be in that position. We typically go to the ODAC tournament with the idea that we have to win it to get to a regional.â&#x20AC;? Hedrick felt the Yellow Jackets could have managed their ODAC appearance better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though, if it is any consolation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shenandoah went on to win the ODAC tournament title as well as the conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

The interruption may have hurt the Yellow Jackets when play resumed Monday. They dropped a 7-1 decision to Rowan, forcing a decisive second game later that NCAA field.

The Yellow Jackets had breezed through the winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bracket with a 1-0 victory over Staten Island in the first round of the Glassboro Regional Friday. They then beat Penn State-Berks 3-0 Saturday. Lightning interrupted the region final against Rowan in the fourth inning Sunday. The Yellow Jackets began

at bat in the bottom of the fourth inning, but it was the Profs who struck first, erupting for four runs in the fifth inning and adding three more in the seventh. Randolph-Macon struck first with a run in the first inning of the deciding game, but could muster little offense afterward. Rowan tied the game in the second and got the game-winner in the sixth. Dave Lawrence can be reached at dlawrence@mechlocal.com.

Hedrick said. The 2018 NCAA tournament appearance will be the sixth for the Yellow Jackets overall and the fifth with Hedrick as head coach. Their

last NCAA appearance was in 2016 when the team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after winning the first regional game in program history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; advanced regional championship game in Washington, Pennsylvania.

 

  

    

        


Experience made difference in Atlee victory By McKenzie Terrell Richmond Times-Dispatch MECHANICSVILLE – In a nine-inning battle of defense, No. 9 Atlee edged No. 8 Patrick Henry 3-2 on Friday. With the extra innings rule in play, putting Atlee’s Alyssa Bernadini on second, shortstop Jordan Durbin hit a walk-off single to send her home. Atlee pitcher Rachel Davis threw 14 strikeouts in a complete-game effort. Patrick Henry’s chance to score in the ninth was foiled by some recalled knowledge. Radiers third baseman Victoria Bernadini snagged an airborne bunt hit by Patrick Henry’s Hailey Thomas. Victoria then tossed the ball to

Durbin at third for a double play that ended the inning. Victoria said she was ready for the Patriots (9-3) to bunt because it was the same strategy Patrick Henry used to beat Atlee earlier this season. “I knew they were going to bunt at some point,” Victoria said. “I was just trying to take (their chance) away, any kind of bunt I just wanted to make sure that girl didn’t score.” Victoria’s outs gave the Raiders (10-6) the chance to plate the winning run. Atlee coach Tom McIntyre said the reason the Raiders prevailed is because they were able to put runners on base. “This game we were finally able to find the way to push a runner in when it was finally

time to do so,” he said. The final baserunner came automatically in the ninth. McIntyre said, while he doesn’t love the rule, it is helpful in games such as Friday’s. “It takes what could be a 20-inning game and shortens it,” he said.

As the end of the regular season nears, Atlee prepares for its final three games with a similar strategy as the one used Friday night. McIntyre said his team will continue to try to put runners on base and push them in for runs.

Lee-Davis 6, Hanover 5 MECHANICSVILLE – LeeDavis’ Jesse Gentry’s walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh drove in Sydney Guess to cap a 3-run seventh that led the Confederates to a 6-5 comefrom-behind win over the visiting Hawks Friday night. The Confederates took an early lead thanks to a threerun first inning, but Hanover responded with two runs in the second inning to close the gap to 3-2. Then the fireworks began. Savannah Thorne opened the Hanover seventh with a walk. She advanced to second one out later on a groundout by Jessica Russell. Thorne advanced to third on a single by Leslie Currie, and Lauren Hughes drove them in with a

home run to center field to put the Hawks ahead 5-3. The Confederates were down, but not done, and they got their first baserunner, Lauren Taylor, on with one out in the seventh on a Hanover error. Hayli Wagner singled and moved to third on a double by Sydney Guess that scored Taylor to bring the Confederates within a run, 5-4. Wagner tied the game on a groundout by Logan Hawker. That brought up Gentry, who launched a line drive to right field to score Guess and end the game. Mechanicsville Local sports editor Dave Lawrence contributed to this report.

Broadened access helps pole vaulters ‘Aim High’ By Monica Hunsaker For The Mechanicsville Local MECHANICSVILLE – The pole vault is becoming more inclusive as it rises from a oncedying high school sport to one to watch in Virginia. Kyle Bishop knows accessibility is the key to the pole vault progressing to mainstay status in Virginia athletics and the VCU graduate remains at the forefront of making it happen. Bishop started what is now Aim High Pole Vault Club in 2011 after years of coaching at Lee-Davis. He felt strongly pulled to bring his beloved event to potential athletes kept out of the sport due to its hefty equipment price tag. “I wanted to give back where kids weren’t given the opportunity to try pole vault. It’s extremely special to take a kid who wouldn’t normally be

able to afford to vault, or who has never even seen the sport, and say, ‘Okay, let’s see if we can take this kid from ground-zero,” Bishop said. The Mechanicsville club has been a powerful force for preparing athletes for collegiate competition. Bishop joined forces with coach Eric Sandridge, which has proven a potent recipe for the club’s athletes. “It’s amazing what can happen when like-minded people get together,” Sandridge said. “We want to provide the place where these kids can thrive.” It was under Bishop’s coaching that Sandridge, then an Atlee student, earned numerous district championships and all-region awards before going on to compete at William & Mary. Sandridge has now himself coached a myriad of state champions.

role in what proved the most fundamental and important shift for the pole vault in the state. Championing the inclusion of female athletes, Bishop’s foresight paid further dividends as he watched his Lee-Davis

contingent of pole vaulters quickly grow from just five to a healthy 15 members when the VHSL added the girls pole vault to its slate of track and field events in 1999. This was a major shift from what pole vaulters and their coaches had

become accustomed to: living with the constant fear of being shut down altogether because of high equipment and insurance costs and too few participants. “Females really saved the sport,” said Sandridge, who has helped female pole vaulters – such as Lee-Davis’ Jordan Lipinski – win state championships and achieve personal bests over 12 feet. “I’ve seen [the pole vault] die four times in Virginia, just since I’ve been around.” The coach remembers his early days, which involved a lot of teaching himself the ins and outs of the pole vault. Still, he finished high school holding the school record and All-Region honors. Today he believes the sport and its athletes are on the rise and at their best yet. Though not one for the spotlight, Bishop admits he’s incredibly honored to be recognized for his role in the developing the sport, such as being named National Pole Vault High School Coach of the Year. To be recognized for the club’s extraordinary dedication to the pole vault and its young athletes is, as the coach put it, “the best testament to what we’ve done and are still striving to do.” Monica Hunsaker can be reached at sports@mechlocal. com.

in on that experience as May draws to a close. While Hanover and LeeDavis finished before surprise storms arrived in the county Friday night, Patrick Henry and Atlee did not. The Patriots led 4-3 with a runner at first in the top of the seventh when lightning suspended play, then a downpour made the field unsuitable to continue. The Patriots scored two runs in both the first and third

innings, while the Raiders scored once in the first, then twice in the fourth. Gabe Lassiter pitched six innings for Patrick Henry, striking out nine Raiders, while Timmy Matthews scored twice. Atlee heads to Lee-Davis Friday to make up a game lost to weather April 27, a game which could determine both teams’ seeding in Region 5B. Rob Witham can be reached at sports@mechlocal.com.

Working with Lee-Davis senior Alex Slinkman at Aim High during the 2016-17 season helped the young athlete to secure a school record at 16 feet 0 inches, as well as sweep the Virginia High School League’s Class 5A indoor and outdoor state championships. Atlee senior Will Chapman has seen his work with Aim High pay off this year. He simultaneously broke his school record, the VHSL Class 5 indoor state meet record, and the Boo Williams Sportsplex facility record when he cleared 16 feet 5 inches Class 5 indoor championships in February. It was also the second-best vault ever in Virginia and won Chapman his first state title. But even before Bishop was running his own show, he was actively involved in strides to open the sport to more potential talent. He played a pivotal Nick Liberante for The Local

Family and friends of Salem Presbyterian Church recently took a copy of The Mechanicsville Local to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The group saw how the Old Order Amish live and work in today’s world -- and without electricity. Their large families work together to raise crops and livestock and keep up with household chores. The Salem tourists visited Gettysburg National Park, where they saw the Cyclorama Painting of Pickett’s Charge. They enjoyed the Sight & Sound Theatre’s musical stage adventure of “Jesus.” They also took advantage of the many opportunities to shop. Judy Bowles arranged the trip.

MECHANICSVILLE -Jean Fender of Mechanicsville was presented the 2017 Member Award of Honor by the President of the Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs Convention on April 10 “In recognition of, and appreciation for, her constant dedication to the growth and spirit of her club, district and state garden club, and for the diligent example that she has set for all of us to follow.” She also received the South Atlantic Region Member Award of Honor “For performing outstanding service in promoting the aims and objectives of gardening in the Region.” In May, Fender will attend the National Garden Clubs Inc.

JEAN FENDER Convention in Philadelphia for National recognition. She is a member of Hilliard Park Garden Club and was nominated by her club for the award.
