Washington & Lee Eagles high school sports round-up

Varsity Football
The Washington & Lee Eagles made the trip to the Eastern Shore last Friday with one goal in mind: Block. The Eagles have had problems on both sides of the line blocking and penetrating. The Eagles defeated Northampton, 41-0.
The monsoon of rain that hit Virginia last week caused the Eagles to miss two days of critical practice during the week.  However, they faced Northampton on a surprisingly dry field.  The Eagles were lead by Josh Fones, Pip Bankhead and Travis Seager on the offensive side of the ball and Dorian Garnern on the defensive side. Fones, who completed five of six passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns, seemed comfortable in his first start.  
Seager started the onslaught for the Eagles early in the first quarter catching a pass from Fones that should have been stopped at the line of scrimmage, instead the tight end bulldozed two Northampton defenders for an 18 yard score.

No off season for the elite Washington & Lee Eagles

For most teenagers they spend their summers sleeping in, playing video games, going to the pool, going outside when it’s convenient and just “kick-it.” A number of athletes at Washington & Lee high school have taken a different approach to their vacation time.  Most of the athletes are familiar faces; the faces that coaches, teachers, and peers see every day working hard and sacrificing their time for their school, county, and more importantly, their selves.  They know winning starts in the off-season and there is no off-season for an Elite Eagle.  Games are won and lost in the weight room.

Eagles scrape their way to victory

 

W&L baseball coach Michael Clark knew that starting five sophomores, especially in the ultra-competitive Northern Neck District, would involve some growing pains.  He also knew that kicking off his season with AA schools and proven playoff teams might make for a difficulty early season.  When his team was 1-8, prior to the start of the district season, if he was questioning his scheduling choices, he wasn’t doing so openly.
When senior Bubby Miles, a veteran who has made the switch from outfield to catcher this season, came to him, distressed at the team’s slow start, Clark counseled patience.
“I told him ‘We’ll get better. We’ll learn how to play together at this level, and we’ll be ready for the district season,’” Clark said.
Many of those early season losses were competitive games against proven teams, but it’s awfully hard to keep believing when victories are so rare.
