THE RESET: A Look At The Week Ahead In Every Spring Sport...

We're back from Spring Break, into a five-week sprint to the postseason in all spring sports!

BASEBALL: Atlee gets their first home games in three weeks on Wednesday and Friday, but both against county rivals. Wednesday sees Patrick Henry come in for a make-up game from March 20 at 6pm, then Lee-Davis is on the docket come Friday at 7pm. Before their trip to Atlee Wednesday, Patrick Henry first hosts Hermitage Tuesday at 6pm. The Patriots wrap up a busy week at Maggie Walker Governors School on Friday at 4:30. The Confederates, meanwhile, begin their week hosting Varina Tuesday at 7pm.

Hanover returns from their trip to South Carolina by traveling to Glen Allen Tuesday at 7pm before hosting Highland Springs on Friday. Expect UVA signee Derek Casey on the hill Tuesday night.

SOFTBALL: Atlee (3-2) gets a shot at two county rivals as they seek to re-ignite their offense this week. They've scored 57 runs in three wins, but only one in two losses (Glen Allen, Hanover). The Raiders host Patrick Henry Wednesday, 6pm, then take on Lee-Davis Friday at 7pm.

(NOTE: Both games can be heard LIVE on HCS Media Network by listening on the Mixlr Player at the top of this web site.)

The Patriots (4-1) first host Hermitage on Tuesday looking to start a new winning streak after losing at home to Mills Godwin April 10th. On Friday, they travel to Maggie Walker to face the Green Dragons. Lee-Davis (6-2) hosts Varina Tuesday at 7, then makes good a game at Douglas Freeman Wednesday at 6pm before their trip to Atlee.

The unbeaten Hanover Hawks (5-0) must go to Glen Allen Tuesday for a 7pm game, then host new Conference 20 foe Midlothian in a make-up game from March 21st on Thursday at 6pm, then host Highland Springs Friday at 7pm.

TRACK: All four schools have entered to compete in the MileStat.com Elite Classic on Friday and Saturday to be held at Sports Backers Stadium in Richmond, just behind The Diamond. Field events get underway Friday at 4:30, and Saturday at 9am.

BOYS SOCCER: Hanover is 5-0. Midlothian is 4-0. Something's gotta give Monday at 7pm when the Hawks and Trojans collide at Hanover. Could this be a Conference 20 title game preview? This is just the start of a marathon week for the Hawks, who go to Glen Allen for an 8pm Tuesday match, then come home to host Patrick Henry Thursday at 6pm and Highland Springs Friday at 8pm.

Patrick Henry, whose 2-4 record does not reflect their talent or level of play, get Hermitage Tuesday at home before heading to Hanover Thursday, then to Maggie Walker on Friday as their brutal opening nine-game schedule stretch comes to an end.

Lee-Davis at 4-3 after a disappointing 1-0 loss at Hanover before Spring Break, hosts Varina Tuesday, then travels to face rival Atlee on Friday. The young Raiders, at 1-3-1, only play this week on Friday against the Confederates.

GIRLS SOCCER: Atlee gets the week to prepare to host Lee-Davis Friday evening, looking to improve to 6-0. The Confederates are 3-2-1 and first must go to Varina for a Tuesday night match at 7pm. Hanover gets back-to-back Conference 20 away games to begin the week: at Midlothian Monday at 6pm, then at Glen Allen Tuesday at 6:30pm. The Hawks, 2-3, host Highland Springs Friday.

Patrick Henry, who began 2-0, have gone winless in their last five to stand at 2-4-1. They go to Hermitage Tuesday, then host Maggie Walker on Friday.

BOYS LACROSSE: Atlee is 3-0 and plays all three county rivals in the same week. First up, Patrick Henry Monday at 7pm in Ashland, then to Lee-Davis Wednesday at 7:30, finally to their home field Saturday afternoon for a 2pm match with fellow unbeaten Hanover (3-0), who doesn't play this week until the Saturday showdown with the Raiders. Lee-Davis, at 3-1, gets their shot at Atlee at home on Wednesday at 7:30. After hosting Atlee, the Patriots (0-4) host Mills Godwin Wednesday and Glen Allen on Thursday.

GIRLS LACROSSE: Patrick Henry, at 1-2, also hosts an unbeaten Atlee squad Monday at 5:30, then travel to Mills Godwin Wednesday and Glen Allen Thursday for 7:30 matches. The Raiders, who start the week 3-0, host Lee-Davis Wednesday, Douglas Freeman Thursday, then Hanover on Saturday at 12noon. The Confederates are 1-3 and looking to learn from their 19-1 loss to the Raiders on April 10th.

Hanover is 2-1 after their April 11th win at Glen Allen. They don't play this week until the high noon Saturday match at Atlee.

BOYS TENNIS: Danny Polk and Hanover, at 5-2, host Varina and Atlee on Tuesday and Wednesday respectively before traveling to Highland Springs Friday. The Raiders are 4-2 and host Highland Springs Tuesday before seeking revenge on Hanover Wednesday, then traveling to Lee-Davis on Friday.

Wednesday Baseball Finals....

LEE-DAVIS: The Confederates get great pitching from Joey Pride and Patrick Holler but go 1-1 in their Conference 11 doubleheader Wednesday, Pride shutting out Mills Godwin 4-0 on a one-hitter, Holler the hard-luck loser of a 1-0 game against unbeaten Douglas Freeman. Lee-Davis is now 5-4.

Tuesday Baseball Postponements, Updated Wednesday Schedule....

Rain, indeed, washed out play for county teams on this Tuesday, not that one didn't give it a try.

Hanover got underway in their second game of the Forest Acres Spring Break Tournament in South Carolina, falling behind 3-0 against Wesleyan Christian of North Carolina after two innings. The Hawks scored a run and had the bases loaded in the top of the 3rd when the heavens opened again, forcing first a delay, then a complete cancellation of this game and all scheduled Tuesday tournament action at around 4:25pm ET.

Hanover, who lost their tournament opener 5-2 to Gloucester Catholic (NJ) in 9 innings Monday, will next face Voyager Academy of North Carolina at 2pm Wednesday. Records over two games and runs scored in case of tiebreaker necessities will determine who qualifies where for Thursday's final round.

The Lee-Davis at Douglas Freeman game was postponed to tomorrow. Here is the updated Wednesday schedule for games involving county teams at Douglas Freeman:

12pm: Lee-Davis vs. Mills Godwin
3pm: Lee-Davis vs. Douglas Freeman
6pm: Atlee vs. Douglas Freeman
