BASEBALL: Hanover hands Douglas Freeman its first loss after an 18-0 start, defeating the Rebels in the West End 6-3 Wednesday night. Derek Casey won the pitching showdown as the Hawks improved to 14-2.  Meanwhile, Mills Godwin handed Patrick Henry their second loss in 24 hours, beating the Patriots 7-0.

SOFTBALL: Patrick Henry avenged their only loss of the season, beating Mills Godwin at their Senior Night 1-0, the same score whereby the Eagles beat the Patriots in Ashland April 10th. In both games, a late inning solo home run was the difference. Tonight it was Ashley Samuels leaving the yard on the left field wall in the sixth inning. Candace Whittemore struck out 12 Godwin batters in the victory.  Patrick Henry faces Albemarle in the Conference 16 Semifinals Friday, 6pm in Ashland.

Atlee, meanwhile, shut out Henrico 20-0 to move a win away from the Conference 11 crown and the top seed in next week's tournament. Atlee travels to Highland Springs Thursday for their finale.

GIRLS SOCCER: Atlee is unbeaten no more. Taylor Guy had a hat trick as Mills Godwin erased an early 1-0 deficit and pulled away in the second half to a 3-1 victory. The Eagles are 13-1-1, the Raiders 12-1, but the Raiders still own the top seed at this hour on power ratings.

NOTE: All Conference 11 Tournaments in baseball, softball and soccer BEGIN on Monday, Memorial Day, May 26th.
