That's one year for each of

<< Good evening, I'm Brent Watts in the
SkyTracker7 Forecast Center. A
pleasant night is on tap, with partly
cloudy skies and lows in the mid 50s.
Maybe you'll sleep with the windows
open to enjoy the fresh spring air??
Friday starts sunny with a few
afternoon clouds as temperatures warm
back into the 70s. There's a chance of
a few afternoon showers - mainly after
2pm. Lows Friday night will be near 60.


The weekend should offer variably
cloudy skies and shower chances as a
cold front approaches. Don't expect a


washout, but there are certainly
chances of rain this weekend, with
Saturday looking slightly wetter than
Sunday. Highs are forecast in the low
and mid 70s this weekend.

Highlanders vs Lancers The Highlanders were looking to
keep things rolling at home and there
were plenty of fireworks early.


The Lancers would score in the
Top of the first, Ryan Washington a
Liberty High product will hit one to
centerfield. Camille Ketsdever will
score from second with the game's first
run.


Radford would answer in the
Bottom of the 3rd, Jennifer Everhart
will get a hard chopper through the
infield. Pinch runner Larissa Williams
scores the first run for the
Highlanders to tie the game up at
1-all.


The Next Batter, Cassie Rhodes
hits one into the Bermuda Triangle in
Left Center Field. It would drop, one
run scores and Everhart is looking to
make it 2, but she is tagged out at the
plate. Highlanders though would take
the lead.


Longwood Head Coach Kathy Riley
none to pleased with the umpiring *CG final Longwood in the inning, she made her opinion 1 known and got ejected for her troubles. Radford Radford wins game one 2 to 1 and then 2 takes game two 7 to 6. Those two wins

RU WINS GAME TWO 7 TO 6 give RU 39 for the season a new school
record.
