Realized potential: Sherando senior Sirbaugh a key to team's success

STEPHENS CITY -- Megan Sirbaugh couldn't have known her own potential. Not when she was 4 years old, bumping volleyballs with her younger sister, Morgan, at her mother's club volleyball tournaments. Megan Sirbaugh couldn't have known her potential even in the sixth grade, when she played parks and recreation volleyball, the first time she'd ever played organized volleyball. comments

Strong second half propels Warriors

STEPHENS CITY -- On paper, Sherando's 28-0 victory over Skyline on Friday night might appear to have been an easy win for the Warriors, but it was anything but that. The Hawks' defense kept Sherando in check offensively for most of the first three quarters of the game, leaving the door open for a Skyline upset. Unfortunately for the Hawks, the Warriors' powerful offensive line, and the insertion of tailback Tre Porter spelled doom for Skyline. comments

Warriors down Liberty

BEALETON -- Sherando wide receiver Dominique Porter stood on the sideline, the Friday night lights dancing on the red and yellow and green turf field at Liberty High School. Porter yelled to his brother, Tre, who stood 20 yards deeper than the rest of the Sherando defense, the eyeshield of his helmet glistening. Warriors quarterback Jalen Brisco yelled to Tre Porter, too. The offense, for four quarters, had done its part, giving Sherando a three-point lead over undefeated Liberty in the game's fading minutes. Time for the defense to finish what the offense started. comments

Stellar Footing: Varney's field goal lifts Judges in OT

WINCHESTER -- Whatever it takes. That's been Handley's team motto all season. On Saturday it took a whole lot. It took overcoming four turnovers, two successful Sherando on-side kicks, and a tired defense on the field for three-straight possessions in the fourth quarter. comments
