Strasburg and Stonewall had a busy, busy day today. The girls JV and Varsity soccer teams along with the Varsity baseball and softball teams all played at Stonewall Jackson while their counterparts (boys JV and Varsity soccer and JV baseball and softball) played at Strasburg. We didn’t get a chance to see all of the games but we did get a few snapshots from the Varsity softball game, the JV girls soccer game and the Varsity baseball game.
At the moment I’m just throwing these up but Iwill have more time, later, to come back through, change titles, edit captions and so on. Until then, enjoy!
Amanda Kingan in the on deck circle.
Stonewall Jackson head coach, Mike Hunt.
Rams’ hurtler Lauren Stickles.
The Rams played flawless defense behind Stickles.
Alex Gibson truckin’ it down the first base line.
The Generals’ Haley Stover at the plate (yeah, that green blurr is the ball.)
Odessa Ryan winds up – she pitched the entire game for the Generals.
Jaclyn Ayers steps up to the plate – her teammates look on from the dugout (and who is that handsome fellow leaning against the dugout?)
Strasburg’s Tiffany Milgrim rounds third base (catching a well-deserved high five from Coach Suzanne Mathias) after hitting one out of the park.
The whole Strasburg team runs out to celebrate Tiffany’s home run!
Strasburg’s Bethany Doman at the plate – Stonewall Jackson’s Ashley Meadows behind it.
Odessa Ryan winding up and shortstop Morgan Swartz anticipating some in-field action.

We were happy to run into Jeff Burner behind the Strasburg dugout.

Dennis Atwood was there covering the action (and offering a free gun show) for the Northern Virginia Daily (nvdaily.com).
We didn’t get a chance to watch the whole of the JV soccer game…
…but we stayed long enough during half time to snap off a few pictures.
A quick picture of the Stonewall JV Soccer bench.
An action shot! Love this picture.
You’re in Generals territory, now.
Coach Bill Harlow, Jr. watches his boys from the third base coaching box.
The ghost of Stonewall Jackson was there, cheering on his Varsity Generals. Or maybe this is a Stonewall player that was moving a little too fast for our Powershot to handle. I prefer the ghost theory.
The Strasburg dugout, bustling with action.
The Stonewall dugout.
I mostly just think pictures of lights that do this are pretty… I wanted to share it with you 🙂
We caught up with John Galle here, as well.
Even the cryptographers working on the Dresden Codex couldn’t understand John Galle’s top secret notes 🙂
Good ol’ Sergio Martinez stepped in during the second inning and did his Generals proud!
Andrew Kipps on the pitcher’s mound and Joshua Litten on his toes by the third base line.
