  • A look ahead at the Lions vs. Courtland game Friday night

    Posted on September 11, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    To say that the two teams that take the field at Courtland High School on Friday night are familiar with each other would be one heck of an understatement. Coach of the Cougars for more than a decade now, head coach J.C. Hall has utilized a classic wing-T offense and 4-3 defense in his 12 years at the helm. He’s never altered his basic strategy, and he’s never  suffered a

    Sophomore Taylor Robinson had four of Louisa’s  25 service aces versus Caroline. The Lady Lions won 3-0.

    The Louisa girls varsity volleyball team has a celebration they do every time a member of the squad registers an ace on a serve. They’ll gather near the center of the court, slam their palms to the floor and, in drawn-out unison, yell “Ace.” It was a routine that fans saw a lot of during the team’s home match versus the Caroline Cavaliers on Thursday, August 28. The Lions defeated

Thanks to a commanding defensive performance, the Lions overpowered Spotsylvania 14-2 in the two teams’ season opener on Friday, Aug. 29. “This is obviously a special place to be,” Fischer said after the win. “I’m very appreciative of that.” “We were nervous toward

    Posted on August 21, 2014 at 11:06 am

    In his 20 years of coaching high school football, Louiosa head coach mark Fischer said Thursday's scrimmage was the first time he pulled his team off the field.

    Louisa’s opening scrimmage of the season came to an early and unexpected halt on Thursday at the campus of J.R.

The trouble began in the team’s second and final scrimmage session of the day versus the Meadowbrook Monarchs.  After a Meadowbrook score, tempers flared when a Monarch
