WOODSTOCK - One of the initial conversations I had with Strasburg's Boys Head Basketball Coach Millson French came on a night when Strasburg (1-4) was facing Shenandoah County rival Central. I was new to the Valley and I asked Coach to share his thoughts on the two schools separated by a few miles of U.S 11.
The answer still makes me smile years later... French stated that the town folk of the two communities would fill the building if there schools were playing checkers against each other.
Monday night it was basketball the two played against each other in a gym that would classify as near-capacity in size but off the charts in noise. The Falcons (4-2) and the Rams were both well represented.By their student bodies and by the communities, the cheers filled the air from the pre-game introductions until moments after the final horn had sounded in Centrals 38-30 victory.
