6 Wednesday, July 27, 2016 THE JOURNAL ,+ Local youngsters learn setting, hitting, spiking at annual event CHASE DAVIDSON Oak Grove Baptist Church, fresh off of soccer and science camp, finished its third successful camp of the summer; this time it was volleyball. Throughout the week, the four major skills of volleyball were focused on during station work. These skills were serving, passing, setting, and attacking. Skills, along with 6 versus 6 game-play, rounded out each day. A total of 42 kids came out to the Oak Grove Baptist Family Life Center to take part in volleyball camp. The past two years, we have held volleyball camp outside. With the new addition of the Family Life Center, we were able to host the entire camp inside. I definitely felt like volleyball camp went smoother this year than in years past. Being able to be inside and on a real court was very beneficial and the improvement in skills throughout the week showed just that. I was excited, kids stayed focused and really improved in all aspects of the game. Many of these kids are going to make solid volleyball players in a few years. When Davidson is not up to his hands in volunteer church recreational activities, his life takes a sudden shift as the Colonial Beach High School head volley- ball coach. Recently, he and a team of players spent five day , and four nights at the annual Liberty Uni- versity Volleyball Camp, in Lynchburg, VA. The experience had a profound effect on Davidson and his team of Drifter players. During their stay, in a crowded field of 50 plus teams, they played 10-14 games, while constantly perfecting their court skills. "Basically, you wake up, eat, play volleyball, and got to bed" Davidson said. "It's a great camp, and this is the second year in a row that we've attended the camp. The girls leave the camp so much better, and the best part is that we get go much volleyball in long before we start practice. By the time August arrives, we feel live we are ready" Last season, the Drifters volleyball program fin- ished with the best record (12-11) in recent school history. The double-digit finish has proven to be the perfect incentive to attend more Liberty University volleyball Camps. Kids of all ages were taught the basic fundamentals of volleyball Oak Grove Baptist Church Recreation Center camp. from coach Chase Photo by Leonard Banks Davidsonduring a recent RICHARD IGITT Washington & Lee High School in Montross, noted for the top flight long distance runners, it has produced in recent years, is getting ready for the 2016-17 cross country season. "Boys and girls cross country will start Aug. 1 at W&L High School," said Cole Vanover, the boys cross country coach. "All those interested will meet near the W&L softball field next Monday." Vanover said there will be an in- formation meeting at 5:30 p.m. for parents, then a 6 p.m. meetingwith all interested athletes.

"Last year was a huge change for our program, moving from 1A to 2A. We found success individually having two athletes earn all state honors," said Vanover. "We are still Washington & Lee, and the expecta- tions are high for our runners. We will continue to try to develop the best student athletes." RSL swimming roundup LEONARD BANKS Sports editor HAMMERHEADS DEFEAT GRAFTON: IMPROVE TO 4-1 After their 254-226 win over Grafton last week, Hopyard is now tied at 4-1, for second place in the RSL National Division. The meet featured three triple Ham- merhead winners in the form of Abby Ella, Grace Brancheau, and Lindsay Knoke. Poise, confidence, and team spirit were the three key ingredients for the Hammerhead away- meet victory. "Last night we traveled to Grafton and showed how much we have grown as a team;' Hammerhead head coach Connor Muncie said. "I was very impressed with our demeanor as a group and composure in the face of adversity. We have our last dual meet of the year against the Eels Monday and are really looking forward to ending the season with a bang!" 8 & under 25-meter butterfly, 29.75, girls 8 & under 25-meter breaststroke, 34.12; Re- becca Miller: girls 9-10 25-meter backstroke, 22.53, girls 9-10 25-meter breaststroke, 23.09; Katelyn Spuchesi Girls 9-10 25-meter freestyle 17.13, girls 9-10 25-meter butterfly 22.50.

The last meet is the championship meet where all six teams of the Patriot Division compete in an all-day competition at the Spotsylvania YMCA pool on Saturday, August 6. SHARKS SWIMMERS OF THE WEEK Our girls' Swimmer of the Week joined the team last year and already has started to make her mark on the team. Eight-year-old Brooke Hayden works hard at practice every day and it is paying off at the meets. Her fast freestyle time has kept her a spot on the 8 and under girls freestyle A-relay team and helped them take first place finishes three times this seas.on. Last week, Brooke placed under boy medley B-relay team place fourth. Triston placed l lth in 25-meter freestyle (only six seconds behind first place); third in 25-meter backstroke (25.08); and sixth in 25-meter breaststroke (37.27). These times show great promise for Triston and the team. Triston is very enthusiastic at practice and is eager to learn. Way to go, Triston!
