Two months ago, the position of Ground Supervisor came open at the West Point Parks and Recreation Department. When director James Crowley began his search for the person who would be over the youth sports games, he needed someone dependable and hard working. He found that person in the form of Clyde Hopkins.
Hopkins had been a full-time umpire for Crowley, but he was also known for his dedication while working for the Public Works department as a garbage truck driver.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) had a rough start to the 2009 season, but there is a good chance that they will have rebounded themselves into a playoff spot, if they can defeat the 0-6 Manchester Mavericks tonight, on the road.
“It’s the most important game of the year for us,” said Oak Hill head coach Leroy Gregg earlier this week.
Gregg went on to say that the implications of a win tonight would be a playoff spot for the Raiders, who started the 2010 season 0-4.

It’s time for soccer again. The West Point Parks and Recreation Department announced this week that youth soccer will begin on Monday night at 6 p.m.
The first games of the season will be played at the sportsplex, and the sport will be played on Mondays and Thursdays of each week.
According to parks assistant director Jarod McDaniel, soccer roster numbers are up in 2010.
“Since last year the numbers have gone up,” McDaniel said on Wednesday, as he worked on completing the 2010 schedules. “Numbers have gone up each years since I’ve been here.”

With the high school football season more than half over, conference play is bringing a playoff atmosphere to the air in every ball game.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (2-5; 1-0) are no exception this high intensity football that fans will see as the season rounds out over the next month.
This week’s match for Oak Hill is by far the most important one since their first conference game against Carroll, which they won. A second district win against Manchester (0-6;0-1) on Friday night would spell November football for the Raiders.

They will be heading to the Delta to take on the Carroll Academy Rebels.
The Raiders have had an up and down season in 2010, winning two in a row after a week one loss.

Friday night was one of those nights for the Oak Hill Academy Raider football team.
Just when fans thought things could not get any worse than the scoring gap between their team and Lamar’s Raiders, the sight of players being carried off the field was almost too much.
Late in the game, Oak Hill’s Reid Posey was assisted off the field during a series, and later on, senior running back Doss Miller was carried off by the coaching staff, after injuring his ankle.
