SALEM – Stonewall Jackson High School junior Dakota Bush’s official start to the wrestling season didn’t come until the midway point of the campaign in early January, as he worked to cut the weight he’d built up during football season in order to compete in the 285-pound class. On Saturday Bush nearly topped the Virginia High School League Group 1A heavyweight field.

QUICKSBURG – Stonewall Jackson High School’s boys basketball team entered Tuesday’s Conference 44 tournament semifinal matchup against Riverheads riding a three-game win streak – a spurt that included a win over the Gladiators 11 days earlier – during which the Generals had scored at least 70 points in each of those victories. That momentum didn’t carry over with Stonewall’s regional tournament hopes on the line.
