IN LIKE A LION

Rappahannock News - - SCHOOLS - — Jimmy Swindler

March was true to form, en­ter­ing like a lion and lit­er­ally knock­ing Rapp’s first spring scrim­mages into next week. But de­spite the weather de­lays, our Rapp ath­letes de­liv­ered some timely wins, set­ting the stage for more suc­cess to come in the spring sea­sons. Mon­day af­ter­noon our JV

Girls’ Soft­ball team hosted Lu­ray for a scrim­mage and when the last in­ning had ended the Rapp team was on top in the score­book. At the same time our Var­sity Soft­ball and Base­ball

teams trav­eled to Lu­ray, with a split de­ci­sion the re­sult of the trip — Var­sity Base­ball scored a win in their scrim­mage while var­sity soft­ball dropped their con­test to the Bull­dogs.

Our JV and Var­sity Girls’ Soc­cer teams

were sched­uled to visit Sky­line this past Tues­day, with boys var­sity to host Sky­line, but March’s capri­cious weather post­poned those games, along with sched­uled var­sity base­ball and soft­ball scrim­mages at home on Wed­nes­day.

As of this writ­ing, the girls’ soc­cer teams will host a scrim­mage ver­sus Lu­ray this Fri­day, March 9, first kick at 5 p.m., while the boys’ var­sity team will travel to Lu­ray for a scrim­mage of their own, first kick at 6 p.m.. The Var­sity Base­ball team will play on Fri­day as well, host­ing Ran­dolph Ma­con Academy for a scrim­mage, first pitch at 5 p.m.
