RICHMOND -- James Madison University collected both Colonial Athletic Association men's soccer weekly awards Monday as junior defender Bjarki Aðalsteinsson was named Co-Player of the Week and freshman forward Joe Vyner earned Rookie of the Week after the team opened CAA play with a 1-0-1 record last week.
FRONT ROYAL -- Skyline's football team feels it's in the midst of a three-game stretch that is critical if the Hawks hope to be alive in the Northwestern District race in the second half of the season.
QUICKSBURG -- It could have been worse. Shenandoah District foe East Rockingham had three touchdowns come back by various means, but still put on a 49-0 drubbing of league last-place Stonewall Jackson on Friday night in a game that was shortened in the second half due to the mercy rule.
WINCHESTER -- Shenandoah University's football team can't afford to dwell on its loss to rival Bridgewater in the Hornets' Old Dominion Athletic Conference opener last Saturday. Not with Guilford's high-powered offense looming this afternoon.
STEPHENS CITY -- Perhaps it was for the simple fact that Sherando's volleyball team was hosting Northwestern District rival Millbrook, but the Warriors looked especially sharp on the court Thursday evening.
FRONT ROYAL -- On their way to what they thought was a three-set whitewash of Bull Run District opponent Manassas Park on Thursday, Warren County watched as the visiting Cougars had something to say about that.
WOODSTOCK -- Central's football team entered the season with plenty of question marks regarding its youth and inexperience, and head coach Mike Yew admits that the Falcons are still experiencing some of the expected growing pains.
WINCHESTER -- Skyline senior Luke Cline can still remember what it was like running against the Northwestern District teams two years ago. That's what made things even sweeter on Wednesday, when the Hawks won the boys district cross country title.
Drag racing wasn't completely unfamiliar to me; before Friday I had seen Pro Modifieds, Pro Stock, Alcohol Funny Car and Alcohol Dragsters, as well as sportsman bracket racing at a number of facilities.
