    Richlands Softball

    Agree. A lot of good softball down this way. I'd add Volleyball and Girls Basketball as the area's top 3 overall.

    2019 MLB Thread

    I believe (and hope) that both Harper and the Phillies will live to regret this contract.

    The stats of two MLB players next to a perfectly engineered baseball cyborg. Harper: 7.5 WAR Machado: 16.1 WAR Trout: 27.3 WAR (2016, 17, & 18 seasons)

    State semifinals

    I know Mennonites are slow to embrace progress, but you'd think they'd have a 3 point line by now.

    I concur that BH leaving is for the best. The CBP band box will be kind to his stats and he'll be a thorn for years to come. But if he stayed, the Nats would've likely lost Eaton, Rendon, et al. ensuring a decade of mediocrity. I'm excited to see Soto and Robles join a healthy Eaton in the OF. Dozier solidifies a talented infield. Corbin gives WSH the best top 3 in the MLB while Gomes and Suzuki fill a big hole behind the dish. Rizzo's fielding a solid team AND getting back under the luxury threshold this season. And yes, please send BH a few bucks. $300m over 10 years just ain't what it used to be. Bryce needs record $.

    As a Nats fan, I just don't see them winning the 2019 NL East (aka Anchorman street fight). The Braves are getting no love as the defending champs (seriously, a game below the Mets?). Philly signed half an all-star team during the off-season and are slated at only 86 wins?

    Garrett Amburgey BHC Prep Coach of the Year

    There is a natural geographic bias that affects all regional papers. I'm not saying that's the case here, but Graham is on the periphery of the BHC coverage area and nowhere near to its circulation area. We fans can be purists, but the media doesn't always have that luxury. After all, newspapers are in the business of selling newspapers.

    Garrett Amburgey BHC Prep Coach of the Year

    Congratulations to Coach Amburgey. I appreciate the justification for his selection and don't envy BHC for having to select only one winner. My personal vote would be 1. Tony Palmer 2. Garrett Amburgey 3. Mark Palmer

    Brody Meadows...

    This is how I choose to picture Brody. Congratulations to this young man on a well-deserved selection.

    great coach left us today.

    George Welsh took Cavalier football from laughingstock to a number #1 ranking and national credibility. UVA was a basketball school in a basketball conference, which featured a single football power (much like today). In what I think was UVA's greatest win, Welsh and the Hoos shocked the nation with a win over an insanely talented Florida State team in '95.

    Zac Ervin 2000

    If my calculations are correct, Mac reached 2,000 points on the nose on January 5th in his 10th game of the season. He played in 20 more games averaging 40.05 ppg (801). He finished his career with 2,801. This would put Zac on pace with a number of obvious assumptions.

    Casto retires at Riverheads

    There was no mention of a successor. I've heard Riverheads teaches the double wing at every level beginning with rec ball. An assistant familiar with the system could keep this team on top for a while. Perhaps a Ragsdale-Williams transition would be possible for RH.

    Below are possible symptoms for a mental disorder. At first, I thought it described this thread. But on second thought. I believe it describes every thread on this site. -Affected people lose their train of thought during conversations, make loose associations of topics (tangentially jumping from one topic to another apparently at random, or on the barest of associations), and give answers to unrelated questions. -Speech may be highly circumstantial, meaning that affected people may speak continuously, providing numerous irrelevant details and never getting to the point. -Occasional speech that is so disorganized that it becomes a completely jumbled "word salad" devoid of discernible meaning despite being full of words. -Easily agitated with bizarre, socially inappropriate outbursts.

    Thankfully football is finally over. We can now focus our full attention back on Mac without distractions.
