WEDNESDAY ROUNDUP....

Randolph-Macon jumped on their arch rivals, Hampden-Sydney, in their baseball game Wednesday at Hugh Stephens Field, scoring 3 runs in the first and 3 more in the second. They were ahead 13-5 going into the 9th inning....

...but the Tigers weren't done. A surge rally in the 9th fell two runs short as the Jackets survived 13-11 to go to 3-2 in ODAC play, 7-6 overall. Atlee graduate, freshman Mitch Keeler had a career game, hitting for the cycle and driving in six of Macon's 13 runs.

Minutes after the win, attention turned to Day Field where the men's lacrosse team faced off against Ferrum, capturing a 17-13 win in their final pre-ODAC tuneup. Randolph-Macon improved to 4-4 with the win, and start conference play Saturday at Washington & Lee at 1pm.

-----------------------

In the first game in the history of Lee-Davis girls lacrosse, the Confederates fell hard at Deep Run, 19-0. It was 14-0 at halftime, but head coach Catherine Ostoich kept the girls positive and confident, and it paid off in better defensive play in the second half.

"Defense has to be our foundation," Ostoich said after the game. "While it would be great to be on the attack, first you have to have the ball."

Goalkeeper Harper Matthews, one of six players on the roster with lacrosse experience, was peppered all game by the Wildcats' offense.  Though it was a hard first outing, it was a solid foundation game for the Confederates, and this day will be looked back upon years from now as the launching point of a successful program...
