York County and Poquoson Weekly Sports Recap
Submitted by John Hamilton

Recap18AprThe Virginia pollen is thick and blanketing the air, but that hasn't stopped our local athletes from continuing to compete.

In outdoor track and field, Tabb High School drove up to the James River Invitational, and Zachary Coldsnow drove off with the First Place Trophy in the discus, complete with a new meet record!

In baseball news, the Tabb boys visited Bruton on Friday, 4/12 and batted their way to a 10-1 victory. Not to be outdone, the girls were there too, and batted their way to a 16-5 victory. The York boys lost two close ones this week. On Wednesday, 4/10 they hosted Jamestown and lost a slugfest 16-14, and two nights later they visited New Kent and lost 3-2. They are now 0-7, but we should note five of their losses have been close contests. They should get that first win soon! The York girls lost to Warhill 11-0 at home on Wednesday, and 2-0 at New Kent on Friday. On Friday, 4/5 the Grafton boys traveled all the way to Atlee in the middle of the state of Virginia, only to lose a 6-5 squeaker. That was the team's first loss of the season. However, they rebounded the next Friday with a 9-5 home triumph against Smithfield. That same night the girls also hosted Smithfield, and won 6-3. They also only have one loss on the season so far. On Friday the Poquoson boys visited Lafayette and lost 13-3, but the girls visited too and won 8-7.

The girls also played New Kent that evening, but at home, and won 4-1 to move to an impressive 5-0-1 on the season. The York boys lost at Gloucester on Wednesday 5-3, but bounced back at home on Friday with a 4-0 win over Bruton. The York girls continued their dominating season, as they shutout Gloucester at home 2-0 on Wednesday and away at Bruton 8-0 on Friday. The York girls now have four straight shutouts, are 7-0-1 on the season, and have given up only two goals in eight games! The Grafton girls won 4-0 at Warhill, and now have a winning 4-3 record. Poquoson went to Jamestown on Thursday and lost 7-0, and the next night the girls hosted the same school and lost 2-1. On Thursday the Middlesex High School boys made the long drive to Bruton, only to lose by a 5-0 score.

After winning three straight to open the season, the Tabb boys have now lost three straight. However, the Tabb girls hosted Poquoson the same night, and won by that same narrow 5-4 margin.

The York girls won twice on the road. On Tuesday they also visited Grafton but won 8-1, and on Thursday they defeated host Lafayette 9-0. They are now 7-0-1 on the year. In addition to their previously mentioned win against York, the Grafton boys won 8-1 on Thursday at home over New Kent. They are now a stellar 7-0 on the season, while the girls squad currently sits at 2-4. Both the Poquoson girls and boys teams are now 5-3 on the season. The Bruton girls lost two home matches, one to Lafayette and one to Jamestown, to fall to 0- 7 on the year.
