Big Night For Hanover Hawks!

The irony of a hawk perching at various locations around the Hanover High School athletic complex Tuesday night, observing action below, is not lost.

By night's end, the Hawks softball team had won their sixth straight game, the baseball team drew closer to a District title showdown with Lee-Davis, and the Boys Soccer team knocked Atlee off their unbeaten perch.

SOFTBALL: Hanover 5, Atlee 3

--Erica Barrett slammed a home run to extend an early 3-1 Hanover lead, helping the Hawks to victory. Kiandra Mitchum gave up twelve Raider hits, but Atlee left 11 runners on base. The Raiders outhit the Hawks 12-8, but leaving runners stranded doomed their chances of sweeping the season series from Hanover. The Hawks move to 7-2 in the Capital District, 10-5 overall, while Atlee falls to 6-2, 12-3. The Hanover victory gives Lee-Davis, unbeaten in the District, a two-game lead in the standings, with the Confederates coming to Hanover Friday at 6pm. Atlee looks to rebound Friday at home at 7pm against Glen Allen.

BASEBALL: Hanover 2, Atlee 0

--The Hawks only allowed six hits to the Raiders, who left the bases loaded in their half of the fourth inning. The Hawks now await Lee-Davis, winners Tuesday over Highland Springs, for a matchup Friday at 7pm.

BOYS SOCCER: Hanover 2, Atlee 1

--After losing to Atlee on the road April 5th in the final minutes 1-0, Hanover exacted revenge, taking a 2-0 lead en route to a 2-1 victory, Atlee's first loss of the season. Jordan Cleveland scored in the first half for the Hawks, Cole Snyder in the second. Atlee falls to 8-1 in the Capital, 8-1-1 overall, while Hanover goes to 7-1 in the Capital, 9-3 overall.
