The Park View High School football team was scheduled to return to action on Tuesday night with a Tri-Rivers District road contest at Southampton HS but Dragons’ Athletic Director Mike Barmoy said on Monday that the game had been cancelled.

“Between injuries and quarantine, we just don’t have enough bodies,” he said.

The Dragons (1-4) are scheduled to travel to Surry HS on Friday and then complete the regular season with a home game against Windsor HS on November 5.

The Brunswick High School football team (3-1) meanwhile is scheduled to play host to Sussex-Central HS on Friday, travel to Franklin HS on Tuesday, November 2 and finish the regular season at district-leading Greensville HS on November 5.

The Bulldogs are hoping to get all three games in as they are in the hunt for a 2A playoff berth and came into last week ranked at No. 7 in the region. Park View meanwhile checked in at No. 14 in the 3A rankings.

The Tri-Rivers District volleyball tournament was scheduled to get underway on Tuesday night with Southampton, Windsor, Park View and Greensville in the four team field.

The two winners from Tuesday will play for the title on Wednesday night at the higher seed.

The regional playoffs will begin next week with Park View expected to play host to a first or second round contest based on the final seeding.

Champions Tour Stars

It was a beautiful weekend in Richmond for the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, the first event in the Charles Schwab Cup playoffs for the PGA Tour Champions.

Phil Mickelson, the reigning PGA champion, returned to the capitol city to defend his crown and was joined by a large contingent of Hall of Famers including Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Jose Maria Olazabel, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Davis Love III and Vijay Singh.

Mickelson, who drew huge crowds all weekend, never seemed to get in sync and closed with a quadruple-bogey 9 on his final hole on Saturday to erase any chances he had of successfully defending his title. He finished in a tie for 47th in the tourney after winning three of his first four events on the 50-and-over tour.

The ageless Bernard Langer made a big run on Saturday to get back in the mix and then topped Doug Barron in a sudden death playoff on Sunday to become the oldest winner in the history of the PGA Tour Champions and keep his lead in the Schwab Cup standings.

Good Luck to the Braves

How about those Atlanta Braves?

It has been 22 years but the Braves are back in the World Series after topping Los Angeles 4-2 in the National League Championship Series.

Atlanta will have their hands full with Houston in the Fall Series but I like the makeup of this Braves team especially with the way Eddie Rosario has been swinging the bat.

I think they can win the ship. Go Braves!
