Cadets had an excellent time tubing and using the trampolines at the Liberty University Snowflex facility. Snowflex offers year-round tubing, skiing, and snowboarding. While we've have unseasonably warm temperatures, we know that these guys are ready to hit the slopes on skis and snowboards!

The following cadets completed their training and earned their American Red Cross Lifeguard certification this weekend: Caleb Chester, Gabe Chester, Ben Gregori, and Jay Thompson.

Post-Graduate Basketball at the Top

 

In the latest edition of the National Prep Coaches Poll, the Hargrave Tigers Post-Graduate Basketball team earned the #1 national ranking.


On the heels of an impressive tournament victory in  December at the Fork Union Military Academy Invitational, the Tigers were rewarded for their efforts by the voters when Tuesday's National Prep Coaches Poll was announced. Hargrave, currently 15-0, has put up face-to-face wins over other top national contenders:  #9 Woodstock Academy (89-72) and New Hampton (104-85). 

Rogers-Fuller Baseball Field Preparation

 

New head varsity baseball coach, Frank Thomas, took to the baseball field over the holidays. With assistance from Mr. Don Haston, facilities director, and a rented turf cutter, the two of them improved the pitching mound and infield. Additionally, they repaired and cleaned up the batting cage.

 

Even though it is still the middle of the winter season, even more field preparations are scheduled so our Tigers can take to the baseball program to the next level this spring!
