Thursday Night Hoops - Riverheads @ Stonewall Jackson


The winter storm is trying to disappear from the Mountains and we have hopes of playing some high school hoops later today. It will be a busy stretch for all of the Valley High School Athletic Directors as they scramble to try and find dates for the postponed games from Tuesday & Wednesday nights.
_____________________________________________
This will also make it tough on the local Sports Editors like Rob Sisk, Hubert Grimm and Chuck McGill. If you are wondering why it is because a number of the games will be played on Saturday night. That has the coverage of the games competing with some football game that is being played this week-end.
No such trouble for me- just an opportunity to spend a few more days trying to bring joy to my little corner of the world.Riverheads will make the trip up to Quicksburg on Thursday night to play Stonewall (Girls) in a contest that was designed to be played Tuesday night.

24 hours later Stonewall will complete the Augusta County Two-Step by heading down VA-42 to play Buffalo Gap. This game promises to be a Dandy as both teams are currently 4-0 in the Shenandoah District and are set to face each other twice down the home stretch. How big will the festivities be on Friday (?) - I am hoping to walk in to a packed gym.
_____________________________________________
So check the morning newspapers later today and find a local high school game or two to attend this week-end. I promise you will still have time to catch the other game as well.
