Lyberty Anderson Wins Group AAA with Eagle

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Manchester High senior Lyberty Anderson won the state-wide Group AAA Tournament in most impressive fashion on Tuesday, eagling the final hole to secure her victory.

Going into the final of the 18-hole tournament at Red Wing Lake Golf Club, Lyberty Anderson was one shot behind leader Jason Park. Park would achieve par on the par-5 hole. Anderson drained a 12-footer put for a 2-shot eagle, winning the tournament by one shot. She is the first female golfer to in the Group AAA Tournament since 2002 (a decade!).

Mills Godwin coach Tom Hoy said to The Richmond Times-Dispatch, “We’ve been saying golf in the Richmond area is as strong as anywhere in the state and I think that’s proven here,” Hoy said. We couldn’t agree more! The talent in this area across all sports is just amazing, and we continue to see it in the news and from talk with customers in the store every week.

We spend a lot of time talking about football, baseball, swimming, baseball, lacrosse, and so forth – but we’re fans of EVERY sport. Golf is no exception – and we’re always proud of the amazing athletes that come from the Greater Richmond area.

Richmond and VCU in the Sweet Sixteen!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

Sixteen teams, fifteen cities. Richmond has now become only the THIRD city since 1985 (when the tournament was expanded to 64 teams) to have two teams in the Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Tournament. It has happened five times since 1985, once in Pittsburg, three times in Los Angeles (UCLA, naturally, being 1 of the teams each time), and once in Richmond. Big thanks to Ross Catrow of Chartsandgraphs at RVANews for doing the research there.

Long story short, it’s been quite a tournament! It started in the (newly named) First Round of four in which VCU fought and won their place in the tournament over USC – silencing many who were critical of VCU’s selection. In the second round we watched 12-seed Richmond upset 5-seed Vanderbilt in a thrilling close win, only to be treated to 11-seed VCU’s domination of 6-seed Georgetown the next day. Things only got better in the Round of 32. Richmond and Moorehead (fresh off their own big upset over 4-seed Louisville) faced off in a matchup of underdogs, in which Richmond rolled on to a commanding victory. Was there ever any doubt VCU would beat 3-seed Purdue? It sure didn’t seem like it as VCU took charge and lead almost the entire game, winning convincingly 94-76.

VCU will take on the victor of yet another seed upset in the Southwest, 10-seed FSU. The Seminoles will be confident; having just beaten 2-seed Notre Dame – but so will the Rams. Meanwhile, Richmond will look to add the potentially biggest upset of the tournament to their already impressive resume – a victory over 1-seed powerhouse, Kansas. Both games will take place on the 25th, with Richmond tipping off at 7:27pm and VCU at 9:57pm.

If both Richmond team are victorious, they will face each other in the Elite Eight. And what an Elite Eight it could be!
