the tournament’s most outstanding
player, hoists the championship trophy. Cabrini’s John Boyd (left, shooting) put on a show in spite of coming
up a whisker short. Boyd scored 34

When Patrick Henry High School dedicated
its new baseball field (below) in late March,
the powers that be called on one of their
own to throw out the first pitch. State Sen.
John Edwards (above), a 1962 PH graduate,
did the honors. A former state champion
pole-vaulter, Edwards is a member of the
school’s athletic hall of fame.

Cave Spring High
School’s basketball
team (below) came
up a few points shy of
Brunswick in the Group

championship game
played in Richmond
March 10. Thanks to
the leadership of Amin
Abuhawwas (see page
3) and Connor Baker
(left, dribbling), the
Knights made it interesting. Trailing 15-4 a
few minutes into the
title game, the Knights
closed to within six
points in the game’s
waning minutes.
