There are lots and lots of rec league games going on each weekend in Botetourt (and some weekdays, too.) Goodness knows, we can’t be at all of them. So how do we decide which ones to drop in on with our roving camera?
We use a very scientific method. Sometimes, yes, we go by the team names.
So when we spotted a match-up on the schedule between one girls soccer team named the Storm and another named Category 5 — as in a Category 5 hurricane — well, we just couldn’t resist that one.
You’ll find photos of that game in this week’s print edition of The Botetourt View — and you’ll find the entire photo shoot from the game online in this gallery.
Those are just some of this week’s online extras. But before we get to the rest, well, like we said, we can’t be everywhere. But you can be! So if you have photos of your favorite rec league team, send ‘em on to us. We’d love to help you show them off!
