THE WRAP: Atlee Wins; Others Fall on Hard Fought Friday.....

Here's the quick look at Week 4 in High School Football across the county.....

1) Atlee dispelled the myth of the Henrico Warriors, cruising to a 38-7 halftime lead en route to a 38-14 win on Homecoming night for the Raiders. Atlee moves to 3-1 with TD passes from Reid McCoy to Daniel Glymph and Austin Phipps. Henrico falls to 3-1.

2) Hanover went to war at home against former Capital District foe Highland Springs. PAT's were missed left and right, two fake punts, multiple 4th down conversion attempts and a very controversial call later, the Springers escaped with a 32-26 win.  DJ Johnson threw for 184 yards and 2 touchdowns, running for a 3rd, while Alex Wilson scored the first and final touchdowns of the game.

So here we go!

GAME OF THE WEEK NEXT FRIDAY: Hanover (2-2) at Atlee (3-1), 6:30pm on WHAN, 102.9 FM, 1430 AM and online HERE at

3) Lee-Davis ran into a buzzsaw at Varina as the Blue Devils advanced to 4-0 with a 33-7 win. Tim Minor led Varina, including breaking off a 70-yard touchdown run. The Confederates fall to 1-3.

4) Patrick Henry's comeback attempt fell a Hail Mary short at home as the Patriots lost to Mills Godwin 28-20. Bender Vaught became the first Patriot rusher to crack the 100 yard mark on the season. Patrick Henry is still in search of their first win of the season, while Mills Godwin, after losing their home opener, wins their third straight on the road.


Randolph-Macon football is on a bye week, so no action on Saturday.

The Randolph-Macon women's volleyball team is participating in the Emory Tournament in Atlanta, Georgia. Women's Soccer goes to Sweet Briar for a 2pm game, while the Men's team plays at Emory & Henry at 3pm.

Many county cross country athletes will participate in the Maymont Cross Country Festival Saturday morning in Richmond.

Taylor Loomis, Ally Ritchie, and the R-MC field hockey team are home, hosting Bridgewater at 1pm.

THE WRAP: Tons of Volleyball Action; JV Football....

Here's what you need to know from Thursday!

1) GIRLS VOLLEYBALL: Lee-Davis went the to Birdcage and picked up a 3-0 over Hanover that was much closer than that score indicates. An excellent game from libero Rianna Riccardi, the lefty sophomore whose serve was the perfect diversion for the Confederates' offense. She served L-D into a comfortable lead in set 1. Fellow sophomore Kendyll Brown had some excellent kills and blocks, giving the CFeds more help in the middle.  Lee-Davis goes to 9-4, while Hanover drops to 6-6. It was the Hawks' third consecutive 3-0 loss, but consider the competition: Atlee, Glen Allen, and now Lee-Davis.

Put Atlee at 10-1 after a 3-0 sweep tonight against Highland Springs. Speaking of the middle, Molly Jarvis continues her impressive play with six kills to go with five aces.  The Raiders host Henrico Tuesday before going to Lee-Davis for their first showdown of 2013 a week from tonight.

Deep Run swept Patrick Henry tonight in Ashland, 3-0, by scores of 25-17, 18, and 17. Amber Lee led the Patriots (4-5) with 10 kills.....

2) BOYS VOLLEYBALL: In an epic five-setter, Lee-Davis held serve at home and knocked off Hanover 3-2, with the tiebreaker 15-12. Meanwhile, Patrick Henry's first loss since the Virginia Volleyball Showcase Labor Day Weekend came tonight at Deep Run, falling in three sets.

3) GOLF: In the inaugural Conference 16 Tournament at Hanover Country Club, Patrick Henry shot a 330 to finish 4th overall.  Jackson Clarke and Zack Napier each qualified individually for the 2013 Class 5A North Region Tournament, each shooting a nine-over par 80.

4) JV FOOTBALL: Very, very impressive victory for the Lee-Davis Confederates, 12-0 over Varina tonight. On the road, Atlee knocks off Henrico by a 24-14 count.


FOOTBALL!  Our Game of the Week on WHAN Radio (102.9 FM/1430 AM) features a decade-old, former Capital District rivalry as Hanover welcomes in Highland Springs. Both teams are 2-1 and look for a win to help solidify playoff position in Class 4A and 5A respectively. Hanover won the last time these two teams met on Chamberlayne Road, 10-7, and last year's battle went down to the final play of the game when Highland Springs QB D.J. Johnson found the left front corner of the end zone on an eight-yard run with no time remaining to complete an 18-point 4th quarter comeback to win, 24-21.

Listen LIVE starting at 6:30, either on radio or online at the link at the top of this page!

ALSO: It's Homecoming at #Atlee, and the opponent is a surprising 3-0. The Henrico Warriors and quarterback Malik White come to the Rage Cage to try to match Reid McCoy and company yard for yard, point for point. Henrico's victories are all over winless teams, so this is a big step up in competition for them, but the Raiders are one of the region's most banged up teams, missing Austin Cannon, Booth Watson and Ross Gardner due to injuries.

Patrick Henry will host Mills Godwin (2-1) in hopes of not going 0-for-September and give Jonathan Clark his first varsity head coaching victory. The Eagles have won two straight on the road after losing their opener at home to Monacan.

Lee-Davis, coming off their Tomato Bowl win and Blake Stattelman's 321-yard rushing night, must go to Varina, who are coming off their first win over Hermitage in five years. The 3-0 Blue Devils are near the top of Class 6A South, while, at 1-2, Lee-Davis is trying to find victories to claw back into the playoff race in Class 5A South.

Follow us all evening Friday on Twitter for score updates, @hanoversports!  We'll talk to you on 102.9 FM Friday at 6:30!

THE WRAP: #LDFH to 8-0, PH Boys, Atlee Girls Continue Volleyball Success....

Here's a review of the night that was Tuesday across Hanover County....

1) FIELD HOCKEY: Lee-Davis improved their torrid start to an 8-0 mark, scoring all of their goals in the first half en route to a 3-1 win over Glen Allen.  Lauren Wolfgang had two more goals for the Confederates, one was assisted by Madison Doss, who scored their final goal just 85 seconds before halftime.  The Jaguars got on the board in the second half, but came no closer than two.

2) VOLLEYBALL: Patrick Henry's boys team scored an important win at home over Mills Godwin in a game heard live on HCS Media Network. Sam Boyd's 38 assists set up Lucas Pienkowski, Austin Pace and Cowles McCray with important kills as the Patriots swept the Eagles, 25-18, 27-25, 25-20, to move to 8-4.
The Hanover boys survived a marathon versus Glen Allen, winning the tiebreaking fifth set 18-16, and the Lee-Davis boys were victorious, sweeping Highland Springs on the Springers' home court.

In girls' action, Atlee moved to 9-1 with a sweep of Varina, while Lee-Davis held serve at home, sweeping Highland Springs. Hanover fell to Glen Allen in three sets in a battle of former Capital District, and now Conference 20, foes.

3) WOMEN'S SOCCER: Randolph-Macon traveled to Mary Washington, but fell by a 4-2 count. The Jackets now have a record of 3-5.


1) CROSS COUNTRY: Patrick Henry meets J.R. Tucker and Hermitage on the road Wednesday afternoon, while Atlee, Hanover, and Lee-Davis all head to a "Capital District" meet at Pole Green Park.

2) FIELD HOCKEY: All eyes will be on Atlee at 5pm as Hanover comes in to face the Raiders, who are coming off a shocking loss to Henrico Monday in penalty strokes. Patrick Henry looks for their fifth win of the year at home against Maggie Walker Governors School while the unbeaten Lee-Davis Confederates go for 9-0 at Varina.

3) WOMEN'S VOLLEYBALL: Randolph-Macon, winners of three straight ODAC matches, look to extend that streak in Crenshaw Gymnasium Wednesday night when Bridgewater comes to Ashland for a 7pm match.

LIVE TWEETING: HCS will be at both the Hanover/Atlee Field Hockey match and the Bridgewater/Randolph-Macon Volleyball match at 5pm and 7pm respectively!  Follow us on Twitter, @hanoversports, for real-time updates from those matches and scores from other games!!

THE WRAP: L-D Unbeaten; Atlee Upset.....

Field Hockey action in every corner of the county Monday night with some interesting results.

The shocker of the night was at Atlee, where the Raiders (6-3) were upset by Henrico 3-2 in penalty strokes after a scoreless regulation and overtime. Numa Rehmani had 12 saves for the Raiders, who must regroup and be ready to face Hanover at home Wednesday at 5pm.

The Hawks dispensed of Varina 3-0, while Patrick Henry shut out J.R. Tucker on the road 4-0.

Meanwhile, Lee-Davis celebrated Senior Night with a 10-0 defeat of Highland Springs.  Cameron Gibson had four goals and Madison Angus and Lauren Wolfgang each tallied one.  The Confederates have a huge match-up tonight at Glen Allen.


1) Field Hockey tonight: Lee-Davis trying to stay unbeaten at Glen Allen, 7:30pm

THE WRAP: College Stop Saturday!

Through the monsoon went HCS to visit two Hanover County freshmen who have already made their mark in football and women's volleyball.

1) Sam Rogers played often, at tailback and on special teams as Virginia Tech won the first triple overtime game in Lane Stadium history, 29-21 over Marshall. 33 plays for Rogers by our count, most blocking, but QB Logan Thomas missed a wide open Rogers on a key fourth quarter pass. The Hokies, behind for over half of the game, finally tied things up with 3:09 to go on a TD pass from Thomas that was tipped before being caught in the end zone by Willie Byrn.

Each team failed to score in the first two overtimes as the rain poured and the winds swirled. Thomas finally took the game into his hands, scoring a touchdown and the mandatory 2-point conversion in the third overtime. The Tech defense, stalwarts in the second half while the offense sputtered, stopped the Thundering Herd one last time to seal the victory.

2) We visited 89-year old Memorial Gymnasium on the campus of the University of Virginia next to see freshman Karlie Suber and the Cavaliers battle in-state foe William & Mary. The Tribe won the first set 26-24 before the Wahoos took the next three sets to win in four to advance to 7-5. Suber played in the first two sets and had six digs.

Virginia gets ready for ACC play, having to travel to Duke and Wake Forest before returning to Charlottesville October 11th and 12th.  Karlie is one of four freshmen active on the roster and getting a lot of playing time, and thus, key growth experience in weekend tourneys as the Cavs prep for the ACC.

3) Deshaun Rogers had two kick returns for 27 yards total and a solo tackle as Randolph-Macon outlasted Bethany (WV) College Saturday 36-28. Will McGhee had a monster game, rushing 42 times for 296 yards to lead the Jackets, now 2-1, who have a bye next week before starting ODAC play at home October 5th.

Add in Donte Haynesworth's work on defense with Norfolk State, and the Class of 2013 is already making its mark at the next level, with many other athletes waiting in the wings come winter and spring.

We'll have a wrap-up of this special Saturday tour in Thursday's Hanover Herald-Progress.


It's NFL Week 3....enjoy it!  We'll rest up and get ready for another full week of high school and college action, including two volleyball internet broadcasts:

Tuesday 9/24: Boys Volleyball: Mills Godwin at Patrick Henry, 6:45pm
Thursday 9/26: Girls Volleyball: Lee-Davis at Hanover, 6:55pm

Listen to both right here at from HCS Media Network!

THE WRAP: Friday Night Football, Week 3

No one's unbeaten in football anymore.....and a monster night for a running back. Here's the headlines from September 20th:

1) The Blake Stattelman Show--The junior tailback rushed for 204 yards and three the FIRST HALF!  He returned to add 117 more yards and a final touchdown run to end the night with 42 carries, 321 yards, and 4 TD's, Player of the Week candidate without a doubt, as Lee-Davis beat Patrick Henry 34-14 in the 55th Tomato Bowl.  It's the Confederates' 3rd straight Tomato Bowl victory, as well as their 3rd straight win in Ashland dating back to 2009.

2) PH Finally Scores, Now What?--Their defense, again, wore down, because the offense couldn't sustain drives. Tyler Phelps was quite rusty in his return, going 2-of-13 for 11 yards, though he had two long pass attempts to Chesdin Harrington right on the money before they were knocked away by Lee-Davis defenders in one-on-one jump ball situations. The Patriots are 0-3, and 2-1 Mills Godwin comes calling next Friday. PH desperately needs #1's to emerge: a number one tailback, a number one receiver, a number one shutdown defender who leads the charge a la Jeff Thompson, Sam Smith and Adrian Cavanaugh have over the past decade. That warrior-type leader hasn't emerged for the PH defense...yet.

3) Hanover, Atlee Go Down on the Road: Hanover jumped to a 13-0 lead, then sputtered the rest of the way, while Hopewell jumped back into the game with a great 3rd quarter, taking the lead for good late and holding on for a 21-19 win. The Hawks are 2-1 and return home to facing a rested 2-1 Highland Springs team, who had a bye this week.  Highland Springs at Hanover is our Game of the Week on 102.9 FM WHAN Radio and here at next Friday!

Atlee discovered they didn't have the only defense in the area making huge improvements over last year. The Douglas Freeman defense held Atlee to just two touchdowns as the Rebels pulled away with a 24-14 win to go to 3-0 for the first time since the 1990's, a minimum of 15 years....the Raiders come back home next Friday to face 3-0 Henrico, whose offense can strike quickly.  Suddenly, another tough test for a Raiders squad whose offense has regressed the last two weeks after that 70-point performance on opening night.

The Raiders were without lineman Austin Cannon and wideouts Ross Gardner and Booth Watson, all out due to injuries. They probably won't be available for the Henrico game either, making it all the more important for McCoy, Dandridge, Stubbs, Carey, etc to step up their games individually if the Raiders want to be 3-1 going into Hanover week.

4) Congratulations to Travis Phillips, now a freshman at East Carolina, and Shania Williams, a Patrick Henry senior, as they received their state championship rings tonight in a pregame ceremony at the Tomato Bowl!  Phillips won the 110-meter hurdle title, Williams the women's shot put title, last spring.  Travis sent us a shot of his new hardware....


1) Sam Rogers and Virginia Tech welcome Marshall at 12noon at Lane Stadium, while Karlie Suber helps the UVa Women's Volleyball team in a weekend tourney in Charlottesville.  They'll play William & Mary at 7pm. @Hanoversports plans to be at both events on Saturday, as we work on a series for the Hanover Herald-Progress on multiple county freshmen already making their mark on the college level.

2) THANK YOU!!!!  Our halftime fundraiser for the American Heart Association's Richmond HeartWalk raised an amazing $341!!!!  CLICK HERE for all the details about the HCS Team walking next Saturday, and, if you haven't given a donation, we'd love for you to do so!  Just click the "Give Now" button!!

3) Don't miss "Central Region LIVE!", Richmond's ONLY LIVE call-in radio show dedicated to high school sports, Monday night at 7pm on WHAN, 102.9 FM/1430 AM.  Guests include Marc Davis of @NBC12 and Highland Springs head coach Loren Johnson!  Join us before you watch #MNF!!

Friday, September 20, 2013


Here are Thursday's Highlights....

FIELD HOCKEY: Sophomore Sydney Baldwin had a penalty stroke goal and an assist to pace Atlee to a 3-2 win at Patrick Henry, advancing the Raiders' record to 6-2. Brooke Flexon and Ashley Samuels tallied for the Patriots, who fell to 3-4.

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL: It will go down as an Atlee 3-0 sweep of Hanover in the record books by scores of 25-16, 25-11, 25-11, but the Hawks performance at home was better than the score reflects. They led set one 13-12 before Atlee went on a 13-3 run to win it. The Raiders were more decisive in the final two sets, taking advantage of several unforced Hanover errors. Kudos to Lauren Stanford, in at libero for the injured Melanie Snyder, who contributed 10 digs, 4 assists and 3 aces. Maddie French and Kylah Blackmore each had 12 digs as Atlee improved to 8-1.  For the Hawks (6-4), Rebecca Hoover had 12 digs, 3 kills and an ace while Leila Haynesworth at 7 kills, 2 aces and 5 digs...

                                  (action from the JV matchup, won in two sets by Hanover...)

Lee-Davis had a sweep victory of their own tonight over Varina, as Chelsea Matthews helped herself to 6 kills and 5 digs while Anna Soroka added 15 assists. the Confederates move to 7-4...and in a titanic battle to a five-set tiebreaker, Patrick Henry outlasted Hermitage, 25-11, 22-25, 16-25, 25-21, 15-13. Laura Williams' 35 assists and 5 kills paced the Patriots (4-3).

BOYS VOLLEYBALL: A five-set showdown for Atlee and Hanover, and, as in the girls match, the visitors were victorious. Hanover (3-2) knocks off Atlee (4-7) 25-15, 25-22, 25-27, 17-25, 15-12. Giles Vanhuss paced Hanover with 33 assists and 10 blocks, while Drew Hazelgrove had 11 kills, 10 digs, and 5 aces. Eric Rohr led Atlee with 10 digs, 9 kills and 6 aces, while Jeremy Eye had 16 kills on the night, as did Hanover's John Atwood.

Life was much easier for Patrick Henry, as they swept Hermitage 25-19, 25-20, 25-15. Will Burch led the Patriots (6-4) with 2 kills and 3 digs while Wood McIlhenny had 8 kills.

JV FOOTBALL FINALS: Atlee 17, Douglas Freeman 14; Hopewell 34, Hanover 31; Patrick Henry knocks off Lee-Davis 29-20....

GOLF: Atlee takes a victory at Queensfield today, defeating Hanover and host Lee-Davis. The Raiders shot a 161, the Hawks a 174, and the Confederates a 179. Leaders for each team were Phillip Sening, the medalist at 37, Ward Wilkinson for Hanover at 41 and Austin Diehr for L-D with a 42.


It's Football!!

--The 55th Tomato Bowl sees Lee-Davis at Patrick Henry, two teams needing a victory to avoid starting 0-3.  LIVE coverage of the Tomato Bowl begins at 6:30pm on WHAN Radio, 102.9 FM, and online at the link at the top of this page!
--Atlee travels for the first time this year, and they get Douglas Freeman, who they lost to 49-48 on a touchdown with 3 seconds left. Both teams are 2-0 and a huge crowd is expected at William Long Stadium. Get there early for good parking.
--Hanover travels down I-295 to the site of their 2012 Division 5 Regional Championship, rematching against Hopewell. The Blue Devils lost to Powhatan last week while Hanover is 2-0, coming off victories against Patrick Henry and JR Tucker.

FOOTBALL WEEK ONE: Hawks, Raiders Storm To Victory....

The defending regional champions picked up quite nicely with life after Sam Rogers and Company....

The Hawks scored on their opening possession and never allowed a point, defeating Patrick Henry 22-0 in Ashland on opening night, Hanover's eight consecutive victory over the Patriots.

New quarterback Korbin Bordonie went 11-of-20 for 130 yards and 2 touchdowns, including a 9-yard strike to Brennan Gary.

Chesdin Harrington, subbing for the injured Tyler Phelps at quarterback for PH, completed his first seven passes, but didn't complete a pass in the second half. Phelps was out with a sprained ankle and is expected to return next week at Atlee.

Brooks Coombs was the star of the game, rushing 19 times for 134 yards and an insurance touchdown, the only score of the second half.

Meanwhile, the Atlee Raiders picked up right where they left off offensively, as a new cast emerged in a 70-14 rout of Deep Run. It was 49-7 by halftime.  The game was over almost before it started.

Now Patrick Henry must travel to face and find an answer for Atlee next Friday night.  That's our "Game of the Week" on WHAN, 102.9 FM, 1430 AM and here at

In Stafford tonight, Lee-Davis' 4th quarter comeback effort fell a touchdown short as Mountain View held on for a 28-21 victory in the opener for the Confederates......
