Thursday Night Volleyball and JV Football!

The Atlee Raiders boys volleyball team remained unbeaten in the Capital District with a hard-fought 3-0 win over second-place Glen Allen. Game scores were 25-15, 25-20, 25-22.  The second game saw the Jaguars (5-2, 10-5) in the lead most of the way, as the Raiders didn't go out in front until grabbing a 16-15 advantage.

Atlee (7-0, 12-2) was led by Justin Luu's 21 digs, while Matt Rohr had 11 kills, 3 aces and 8 digs. The Raiders host Hanover on Monday night at 7pm.

In the Colonial District, Mills Godwin held off Patrick Henry in four sets, 25-18, 25-19, 16-25, 25-22. The Patriots, now 7-3 in the Colonial (as is Godwin), 9-3 overall, was led by Scott Brigham with 22 kills, 10 digs and 4 aces.  Patrick Henry is next set to face John Marshall on the road Monday afternoon.

Highland Springs defeated Lee-Davis in four sets Thursday night, 26-24, 21-25, 25-19, 25-15 to up their record to 4-2 in the Capital, 5-5 overall.  Lee-Davis fell to 3-5 in the Capital, 6-6 overall, and next must face Atlee, at Lee-Davis, on Monday.


Atlee's unbeaten girls volleyball team rolled on with a 3-0 sweep at Glen Allen, 25-16, 25-15, 25-13, to advance to 7-0 in the Capital District, and 14-0 overall. The rematch with #2 Lee-Davis will be held this Tuesday night at Atlee at 7pm.

Mills Godwin stayed unbeaten in the Colonial by virtue of a 3-0 sweep of Patrick Henry Thursday, 25-16, 25-9, 25-15.  Ellen Davidson had 16 digs for the Patriots, who are now 4-5 in the Colonial, 4-8 overall.  Mills Godwin is 10-0, 15-1.

Hanover disposed of Henrico in Capital District play in a three-game sweep, with scores of 25-23, 25-11, 25-12. Kendall Pully led the Hawks with 18 assists, 2 digs, 2 kills and an ace, while Rebecca Hoover had 9 aces plus 12 digs.  Hanover advances to 4-3 in the Capital District, 8-5 overall.


Douglas Freeman scored 36 points in the first half en route to a 43-0 shutout win over Patrick Henry in Ashland Thursday night.

Meanwhile the Hanover Hawks took the lead for good on a touchdown with less than seven minutes remaining, then the defense sealed a win with two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, as Hanover beat rival Atlee on the road, 26-14.

Dwayne Holmes intercepted Atlee's first pass after taking possession after the lead change, and the Hawks drove to the Atlee 12.  Their drive stalled, but they took precious time off the clock, as Atlee took over at their own 12 with one timeout and only two minutes to play.  Faced with a fourth down with 1:10 to go, the Raider pass was tipped and intercepted by Kevin Sesson who returned the ball all the way for the insurance score.
