How The Falcons Stand
For the Guys
For the Falcons, the playoff picture is looking bleak. The team sits at 2-6 in the conference in a tie with Surry Central for fourth place. Carver, North Surry and West Stokes are out of reach with only two games left in the conference season.
So, where does that leave the youthful Falcons? Two options: pack up and go home or put on a show during these last two games and get ready for the conference tournament. Who wants to play the a team with loads of talent and zero pressure? No one, that's who!
Friday night, the boys take on the Eagles of Surry Central. So, get some dinner, put on a red shirt, and make sure that your bleacher seat has a seat belt. I anticipate a wild ride from the free-flying Falcons, led by Logan Lineberry who has been averaging a double-double.
The cheerleaders are still putting forth the effort. The West Stokes student section tried to overwhelm them at the last home game, but the Falcon cheerleaders just got louder and louder. More routines equals more noise from the home crowd which equals more energy for our teams. Get up and get loud!
Athlete of Month
Before the varsity boys game against West Stokes, Lauren Hobson was recognized as the November Athlete of the Month. The award is sponsored by Edward Jones in an effort to spotlight the accomplishments of our student athletes.
Lauren is a varsity competition cheerleader in her fourth year. She was a member of the State Championship squad, and played a pivotal role in its success. Lauren is a member of the National Honor Society, and a student representative to the school board. She is the vice president of the Forbush HOSA chapter. She served as a junior marshal for graduation, and remains one of the top students in her class.
Lauren is pictured with Chris Funk of Edward Jones, and her parents, Derek and Angela Hobson. Congratulations on the well-deserved honor!
So, You Are Saying There's A Chance?
The Eagles of Surry Central knocked off the North Surry Greyhounds earlier this week to forge a tie at the top of the Western Piedmont Athletic Conference. Our Lady Falcons dropped West Stokes and Carver with impressive fashion, and now things are getting interesting as the conference finish line approaches.
The Lady Falcons sit at 6-2 in the conference with losses to Surry Central and North Surry. Both North Surry and Surry Central have records of 7-1. Forbush will play both teams in the next week, with Surry Central coming up this Friday. Two wins would put the Falcons in a tie with the Eagles and Greyhounds for 1st place. Is it possible? Yes. Is it easy? No.
The Falcons have been on the outside looking in all season. It has been North Surry and Surry Central as the favorites, but the girls have control of their own destiny. Either way, you have to be proud of the team, but wouldn't it be nice to knock of the conference's top two teams?
Looking forward to it.
