Here is the place for the lowdown on tennis, golf and other sport on campus. And if you consider band, debate or quiz bowl a sport, you have found your home. It is also the place to discuss schoolwide athletics.

#540676 I have to admit, I’m pulling for his teammate Elliott Sadler to win the championship. He’sfrom my hometown and a family friend. A 1-2 finish would be pretty sweet though.

#540714 Thought so...I remember the Sadlers are Emporia and the Burtons are South Boston (and of course Ricky Rudd, my favorite driver, from Chesapeake)

#540744 And Denny Hamlin from Chesterfield.

I met Rudd at Southampton Motor Speedway in the early 00’s when his nephew Jason was running a late model. Pretty cool dude to hang out and talk with a few of us a while.

I was an Earnhardt fan as well. These days I don’t have one main driver as much but have several I like to pull for.

#541175 LU got a lot of PR today at Homestead. TV had lengthy post race show. LU uniforms all over the screen. I saw Jerry Jr. In Victory Lane. Dale Earnhardt Jr. Was wearing LU cap.

#541178 Good stuff! Going to be fun watching him in the Cup series next year. Thinking he'll get the 24 into victory lane. That car is due.
