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!

Correction: Kendyll Brown, middle at Lee-Davis, is a Junior not a Sophomore.
