In exchange for those three players, the Express sends defenseman Jeff Sproat. Sproat worked for a marketing firm before coming out of retirement. He rejoined the Express for his first game back October 26th. Sproat played 33 games, had 10 goals and 13 assists and was a minus 4.

In high school action last night, Rockbridge County moved east this year to play in the Valley district instead of the Blue Ridge.

[SUPER=03-Rockbridge Co./Waynesboro vs. Rockbridge Co.; :00]

Last night the Wildcats hosted the Little Giants of Waynesboro. Drew Snyder takes the pass in the paint and score the hoop in the third to tie the game at 24. Then Waynesboro regains the lead with Anthony Davis doing the damage. The Little Giants are up by one.

But George Tyler gets the steal and the layin, and Rockbridge County gets its first win as a valley district member 62-to-60 in overtime.

The folks at the University of Tennessee must be loving life. Not only did the Vols beat Florida - they no longer have to deal with Steve Spurrier and now it seems like no one wants to take his place in Gainesville. Yesterday Bob Stoops said thanks, but no thanks and last night Broncos' coach Mike Shanahan also turned down the job.
