Jonathan Wallace would put Halifax up by two runs with the ground out to first, an out, but Shepherd crosses the plate from third.
[SUPER=34-Halifax/11/Patrick Henry/4;]


PH gets on the board in the third. Joey Fernatt with the line drive base hit to center. Nick Uzelac(U-za-lack) is gonna score to cut the Comets lead to 2-1.
But Halifax pulls away. Priest with the single up the middle, David Green makes it 4-1 and the Comets win 11-to-4.

Yesterday afternoon Oak Hill Academy superstar center Sagana Diop announced that he is heading straight to the NBA. Diop averaged 14 points, 13 rebounds and 8 blocks per game this season, but many who saw him play felt like he wasn't ready for the NBA. Still the native of Senegal will without question be a first round pick in the June draft. In making this decision he disappoints UVa, Carolina and Ga. Tech.

The 3 day, multi-stage Tour D' Festival bicycling events that climax on Memorial Day Monday were canceled yesterday.
Several factors led to the cancellation.
The time commitment of these events became too overwhelming for the volunteers and since the last campaign, essential committee members have had to resign due to time constraints and other commitments.
Financial sponsorships were also significantly reduced for the 2001 campaign.
