Northern Neck Rivermen, bigger and stronger than ever

To the delight of area fans, the Northern Neck Rivermen are back for another exciting season of semi-pro football. After their debut 2009 season in the Regional American Football League, the “Green & Black” have taken a step up to the Mason Dixon Football League where they will continue their ongoing rivalry with the Fredericskburg Falcons. With an offensive line averaging 300 pounds and a quarterback in the form of Gage Ford to lead them to a possible league championship, morale is high within the ranks of the Rivermen. Ford played a crucial role in leading his high school alma mater, James Monroe, to a state championship in 2009. During the off-season, Cornwell recruited a contingent of linemen to anchor his offensive line.

Eels start swim season

Well over 2,000 swimmers from 23 swim clubs representing the Rappahannock Swim league took part in opening day exhibition meets last Wednesday in the Fredericksburg metropolitan area.
While the meets will serve as a litmus test for each respective team’s ability to prepare for the regular summer swim season, the Eden Estate Eels enjoyed a fun-filled competitive day, while producing standout individual triple win performances — and a number of first place finishes.
During the meet at Regency Park, Eel co-head coach Curt Albert recorded triple wins in the 50-yard butterfly, 50-yard backstroke and the 100-yard IM. Albert’s 14-year-old teammate Scott Loudin also had a big day in the water, with victories in the 25-yard freestyle, 25-yard butterfly and the 25-yard backstroke.

Bushrod football camp, a hit with area youth

On Saturday, on the fields of King George High School, more than 150 kids, ages 6-13 gravitated to the Jermon Bushrod Visualize and Rise Football Camp. More than 50 volunteers made up of KGHS alumni, area coaches and educators taught aspiring football players the fundamentals of the game. Camp coordinator and Courtland High School varsity football coach George Major is hopeful that the camp motto and focus, visualize and rise, will become a recurring theme throughout the campers’ lives as they pursue their athletic goals.
“The purpose of this camp is to make kids understand that anybody can do anything they want to if they put their mind to it,” coach Major said.

Potomac Warriors 13U win AA State Tournament

Most recently, the Potomac Warriors 13U baseball team defeated the 13U Culpeper Cardinals 13-12 to win the AA State Baseball Tournament at the Virginia Sports Complex. Over the course of the tournament the Warriors won all five games, resulting in 57 runs scored, while giving up 23 runs. After splitting victories against the Mid County Cougars (8-7, win) and the Virginia Patriots (9-6, loss) during this weekend’s tournament at the Bowling Green Baseball Stadium in Bowling Green, the Warriors are boasting a record of 18-10-1.
During the championship game the Cardinals jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Undaunted by the Cardinal attack, the Warriors defense settled down in the second inning; nullifying the Cardinal offense to zero runs. In the bottom of the third inning the Warriors delivered 12 runs to take the lead and the momentum away from the Cardinals. However, in the top of the fifth inning, the Cardinals bounced by with two more runs.
Holding on to a precarious 12-11 lead, the Warriors scored their final run in the bottom of the fifth inning for a 13-11 lead. Not to be outdone, the Cardinals roared back with a run in the top of the sixth inning.
