warmer in March, hitting around 60

Blacksburg's average low is also cooler
near 30, with mid 30s in Roanoke,

spring storms can provide decent rain.

4-inches of moisture, with Danville

Danville sees around an inch, with

Maroons vs. Quakers To the Salem Civic Center we go :00 where it was all tied up at halftime.


The Maroons push it up to start
the 2nd half. A-J Dowell didn't want
his career to end. He penetrates and
nails a pull up in the paint for the
Noke.


But Ben Strong came up big for
the Quakers. The league's player of
the year cleans up the boards for two
and Guilford started to get some
breathing room.


Josh Laporte then hit Curtis
Peery on the nice pass for a deuce down
low. But Guilford hit their free
throws down the stretch and advanced *CG final Roanoke with a 67-57 win over Roanoke. 57 Guilford will get Virginia Wesleyan in Guilford the championship after the Marlins beat

(END SOT) Valley's new baseball and softball


facility was reduced to to a glorified
pile of kindling before they could even
put the roof on it.


But now exactly five months later
the 54 hundred square foot facility is
open for business.


STEVE STILWELL


Stillwell spearheaded the the
lofty effort to build the facility
without a penny of taxpayer's money.
Businesses and inviduals kicked money,
manpower and materials to make the
project a reality in time for the
current softball and baseball seasons.


But even with the building,
nothing would have been possible
without Steve Helgeson.


The former owner of the Hitting
Zone donated all of the nets, pitching
machines, pitching mounds and the
astroturf - equipment valued at more
than $50 thousand dollars.


STEVE HELGESON


Helgeson not only got to see his
equipment put to good use, but his
oldest son Zach - a University of
Maryland bound senior at Hidden Valley
- is in this week's Sports Illustrated
in the Face in the Crowd section.
