Strong Start For Atlee Girls Volleyball.....

The Raiders held serve easily on opening night at home against county rival Patrick Henry, sweeping the Patriots in three sets.

Scores were 25-4, 25-5 and 25-8.  Hailey Brooks had 4 kills and 4 aces on the evening as the Raiders move to 1-0.  Brooks has committed to play college volleyball at the University of South Florida.

In boys action, Lee-Davis took a four-set victory over the Maggie Walker's Governors School Thursday night, winning the fourth set 25-22 after taking the first two and losing the third.

The Confederates are 1-0.

FOOTBALL:

Hanover's only scrimmage of the preseason was Thursday night at home against Eastern Region powerhouse Lake Taylor.  The Titans outscored the Hawks 27-7 in the first half of the scrimmage, finishing with a 48-7 score.  The Hawks played backups liberally in the second half.  Both Sam Rogers and Andrew Knizner saw time at quarterback in the first half.  The Hawks open their season at home September 7th against Patrick Henry, in a game to be heard on WHAN Radio (102.9 FM/1430 AM) and LIVE ONLINE HERE at HanoverCountySports.org.

Atlee battled Manchester in their opening scrimmage tonight, with the Lancers "winning" on the scoreboard, but, again, in scrimmage play, the takeaways are strictly on the field.  Atlee begins their 2012 regular season also on September 7th on the road at Deep Run, a team expected to finish second behind Hermitage in the Colonial District this season....

Patrick Henry scrimmaged at home against Colonial Heights....no word on how the event went.
