THE WRAP: Atlee Lacrosse to State Tourney, Four Softball Region Wins....

The Atlee Raiders boys team clinches its first-ever 5A State Tournament bid Tuesday night dominating from start to finish in a 17-7 win over Brooke Point in the 5A South Region Semifinal at Atlee.

The Raiders will get familiar foe Douglas Freeman in the 5A South Region Championship Thursday night at Atlee. The Rebels defeated Albemarle.

All four county teams win their Region quarterfinal games. We are guaranteed a county representative in the 5A State Tournament next week because Lee-Davis and Atlee will play tomorrow night in the 5A South Region Semifinals, with the winner clinching a State Tournament bid.

Lee-Davis finished its suspended game with Prince George holding on for a 3-2 victory for their 20th win of the year. Atlee followed up with a strong pitching performance from Peyton St. George as the Raiders eliminated Conference 12 champion Clover Hill 2-0.

Also a win away from a state tournament berth are Hanover and Patrick Henry. The Hawks completed a suspended 4A South Region Quarterfinal, shutting out King's Fork 2-0 Tuesday afternoon. Hanover goes to Chesapeake Wednesday to face Deep Creek in the 4A South Semifinals, with the winner punching their ticket to the 4A State Tournament.

Patrick Henry got going on offense quickly as play resumed Tuesday, running away with an 8-0 win over Tuscarora in a 5A North Region Quarterfinal. The Patriots will face Marshall in a Region Semifinal tomorrow evening with a berth in the 5A State Tournament on the line.

Atlee girls soccer scored four unanswered goals after intermission, the last in overtime, to eliminate Clover 5-4 in 5A South Region Quarterfinal action in Chesterfield Tuesday. With the win, the Raiders get a rematch with Mills Godwin in Wednesday's 5A South Region Semifinals. The winner clinches a 5A State Tournament berth. The match is at Mills Godwin at 5:30pm.


The 5A North Region Quarterfinal between Broad Run and Patrick Henry was postponed to 2pm Wednesday.

The 4A South Region Semifinal between Hanover and Grafton will be Wednesday at 4:30pm in Yorktown.
