Highlanders will host baseball, softball and soccer Region 2C games tonight

Dusty Turman fires one in from short as Hunter
Phlegar looks on. Once the game began the Highlanders were all over Radford, taking a 7-0 lead before a thunderstorm came in the third inning
and washed the game out before it was official. Glenvar will be back on the diamond today against Buckingham at 5 pm to start Region 2C play.

The Glenvar High baseball, softball and both soccer teams will begin Region 2C play tonight and all four teams will be home.

The Glenvar baseball, softball and girls’ and boys’ soccer teams have all clinched home field games for the tournament’s opening round. The last to do so was the boys’ soccer team, who won at Floyd Tuesday, 3-1, to clinch a regional home game. Nathan Booth scored twice for the Highlanders and Gavin Curfiss had the other goal.

Region 2C tournament games are scheduled for tonight, Monday, Wednesday and Friday of next week. The higher seeds will host the first two rounds with designated sites for the semifinals and finals next week. The soccer teams will play the semis and finals at the Smith River Complex while the baseball tournament is at Kiwanis Field in Salem and the softball tournament is at the Botetourt Sports Complex.

In tennis the Glenvar girls beat Nelson County, 5-4, in their regional match Tuesday at Virginia Tech. Hannah Yando, Adelia Mau and Alex Saunders won their singles matches, while the team of Hannah Green and Mary Katherine Holliday and the team of Adelia Mau and Alex Saunders won their doubles match.
