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.
