Good Morning from Liberty University : Busy Day coming up Around The Valley


LYNCHBURG - Greetings from the desk of Sabrena Carter - Office Manager at Selah Yearbook- Liberty University. Last night ended at 11:00 P.M. at Kinko's after TK sent his gamer on the Strasburg match up to Chuck McGill at the desk of the NVD. Not to often I get to share work space with my daughter!

Today will include the opening round of the ODAC volleyball tournament over at Hollins University in Roanoke. Eight teams have advanced to the quarter-finals and the action will begin at 4:00 P.M. Two courts will be in use at both 4:00 and then again at 6:30 as the field will be trimmed to the final four. Play resumes at 11:00 A.M. on Saturday with the finals being played at 3:30 P.M.

The time to leave the gym at Hollins today will be shortly after 6:00 P.M. Our Augusta County Game of the Week is taking place just 4 miles down the road at Northside High School. Stuarts Draft High School will be playing their opening round playoff game at NHS and we will be going on the air with the Tailgate Show at 6:30. Jim Sacco is making the trip down to Roanoke and will be joining Chip Crabill and myself for the 1 hour long show leading up to the game.

Tri-Cities (http://www.tricities.com/) reported last night that Gate City is one step closer to returning to Richmond following their win over John Battle High School in the Region D finals last night. The gamer is a solid one and tells us that Gate City (22-1) defeated Battle (19-6) for the fourth time this season. Gate City will play at home on Tuesday while Battle will hit the road.
___________________________________
The Region A final four is set but I couldn't find any papers showing results from last night. All four top seeds made it to the Semi's and the teams include Windsor, Mathews, Northampton and Northumberland. The schedule stated that both the semi's and finals were to be played yesterday at King William. The Wilson - Strasburg winner will host the Region A runner-up while the Region B runner-up will be taking a Road Trip next Tuesday.
____________________________________
Region C will be playing their Final Four Saturday at the same Northwood High School with play starting at 11:00 A.M. Northwood vs. Glenvar will take place at 11:00 and be followed by George Wythe vs. Auburn.
