Our first highlight is that the weather begat brilliant late-day sunshine so we could return to the fields and diamonds of the area!

SOFTBALL: Lee-Davis handed defending Group AAA State Champion Cosby their first loss of the season, defeating the Titans on the road by an 8-2 count. Cosby scored their only runs in the first inning. The Confederates tied the game with two runs in the second, took the lead for good with a run in the third, then broke the game open with 4 runs in the 4th.

Haleigh Cottrell homered for Lee-Davis (12-3) while Amy Wingfield and Becca Hicks each had three hits off Cosby starter Chelsea Whitcomb.  This was Cosby's first loss in any game since a 4-3 defeat to Midlothian on April 18, 2012.

Meanwhile, Ashley Samuels hit two home runs as Patrick Henry shut out Douglas Freeman 6-0 to improve to 11-0 in the Colonial District, alone in first place. Hanover comes to PH to face the Patriots in non-district action Friday at 6pm.

BASEBALL: In a key Colonial battle, Douglas Freeman handcuffed Patrick Henry, as two pitchers combined on a one-hitter leading the Rebels to a 4-0 victory in Ashland.  Chesdin Harrington had the lone hit, a double, for the Patriots, now 10-3 in the Colonial, 10-5 overall.  The Patriots must regroup to face J.R. Tucker Friday at 6pm; it will be Senior Night.

Hanover broke a close game wide open in the 3rd inning en route to an 11-1 thrashing of Lee-Davis at the Hawks' Nest tonight. The win all but clinches the Capital District title for the Hawks, who lead Atlee and Varina by two games, and now Lee-Davis by three.


Douglas Freeman 5, Patrick Henry 0
Atlee 5, Henrico 2 (Connor Hulser had FOUR goals for the Raiders!)

Atlee 5, Henrico 0

The wire electrode normally consists of brass- or zinc-coated brass materials. Wire EDM permits for Bidet Toilet Seat near 90-degree corners and applies little or no stress on the material. The electrode and workpiece are related to an acceptable power supply, which generates an electrical potential between the two components. As the electrode approaches the workpiece, dielectric breakdown happens within the fluid forming a plasma channel and small spark jumps.
