Speaking of Sports for April 23, 2009

Halifax County’s varsity baseball team faced a key matchup last night against Tunstall, traditionally a potent prep program. The Comets improved to 9-0 overall Tuesday - and 4-0 in the Western Valley district - with a key 12-6 win on the road over Patrick Henry-Roanoke, which suffered its first loss in the district.

Late runs give JV Comets a 3-1 win

Ryan Puryear earned the win on the mound and the HCHS JV baseball team produced timely late offense in a 3-1 win over border rival Person County Friday. Puryear worked four innings, striking out six. He walked two, allowed two hits and held Person scoreless. Dylan Sons finished up, pitching three innings. Sons fanned six, walking two. He allowed one hit and one earned run.
