Historic run by Martinsburg
With the third straight destruction of playoff caliber competition, Martinsburg is all but certain to three-peat as AAA football champs.  The game today against the team selected Number 1 by the sports writers in the preseason were so outclassed and outplayed in every facet of the game that any objective observer today would have to conclude that all other teams in WV are playing for second place.

It is remarkable what is happening at Coburn Field.  44 in a row against WV teams at home, winners of alll games but one these past three years, 7 out of 11 state championship game appearances.  And now it appears three championships in a row, tying a mark last set 40 years ago.  Ryan Switzer is a talent on a good team.  Martinsburg is a talented team across the board.  The game today, billled as the real championship game, was a complete mismatch.

I get disappoiinted calling the games with Fred when the outcome is decided by the end of the first quarter.  I have to remind myself that I am witnessing the best football played by a AAA team ever in the state.  It's history in the making and we should enjoy it for that reason alone.

Allow a proud father to brag a little
I was able to watch the Region II finals from the announcer's seat today at the Musselman gym. Buckhannon-Upshur, Hampshire, Hedgesville and Musselman girls volleyball teams competed for two spots in next weekend's state volleyball championships.  As expected, the finals involved Hedgesviile and Musselman, so I was treated to another daughter versus daughter match.

My wife and I should have our heads examined for allowing our daughters to attend different high schools.  But we believe in treating each child individuallly and granting them certain freedoms to make their own decisions.  My heart ached when they first took the court against each other in a varsity match last year but now after nine contests over a two year span we know how to deal with it.

Both teams earned a spot in the State Championships next weekend and we will be hitting the road for Charleston with Hedgesville and Musselman shirts packed away.  We are proud of them and their ability to cut their own path through school and sports.  Whle it would have been ideal to have them celebrating together and to not have to deal with sensitivities around home, it has been a great ride.  We have become closely associated wtih two great sets of parents and teammates, so in a sense our fun times have been doubled.  Let's hope one of them brings back a state championship.  If that happens, I will be more than glad to figure out how to deal with that at home.
