     Poquoson runs through Greensville County, reaches Region 2A final with second rout in row

The Poquoson High Islanders, fresh off last week’s big win over Bruton, picked up where they left off, running inside, outside and through the Greensville County Eagles for an easy 49-0 win Friday at Poquoson Middle School.

The Islanders, who led 35-0 at the half Friday after beating Bruton 62-0 in the first round, rushed for 446 yards, with Colten Hicks (10 carries, 158 yards) and Bailey Green (nine carries, 143 yards) leading the way. The pair combined for five touchdowns, with Austin Gault and Robert Henesey adding the other scores.

With the win, Poquoson (9-3) will move on to the 2A final, for which they will travel to top-seeded Goochland. The Bulldogs (12-0) defeated Amelia 41-20 in the other semifinal.

     Poquoson to put money for beach toward new fire truck

Money previously set aside for a beach at Messick Point will instead go to a new fire engine for the Poquoson Fire Department.

The Poquoson City Council voted Monday to start seeking bids for the new engine, a quick attack pumper.

The money reallocated from the beach to the new engine totals $125,000. The engine would cost $300,000, so the remaining $175,000 would have to be funded in the next budget.

The council decided in April to look into a different use for the beach money after hearing people were not supportive of the idea.

Councilman Thomas J. Cannella II pitched the idea to use the beach money for a new fire engine. The engine would replace another vehicle that’s nearing the end of its functional life, according to fire department staff, and would still take months to be ready for use after it’s purchased. The new engine was originally slated to be purchased in either 2019 or 2020.

     Poquoson may rethink its proposal for widening Victory Boulevard

Poquoson may be changing its plans for widening Victory Boulevard to be more competitive for state money. But while that project’s future is up in the air, the city is moving forward with other plans to improve traffic in Poquoson.

City engineer Ellen Roberts said the design to make Victory Boulevard four lanes was optimized to be as competitive as possible for state funding. But even with the optimized design, the project was not competitive enough to get funding.

Roberts suggested the city look into alternatives, such as only adding one lane or doing alternative intersections, which avoid stops at intersections and help traffic flow. She said there are several types of alternative intersections they could explore, but they would largely require more land acquisition than simply widening Victory Boulevard from two lanes to four.

The council agreed to grant VDOT easements for four parcels near the Wythe Creek Road bridge to accommodate construction access and utilities. Easements for Dominion Power will be permanent, and the rest will be temporary.

VDOT is managing the project, and plans call for a new bridge that is higher, longer and wider to replace the existing bridge. The new bridge would alongside the existing one, which would be converted to a bike and walking path with access to the water. The bridge would be three lanes wide, with a reversible middle lane for traffic flow at rush hours.

Other city traffic projects include extending the sidewalk on Poquoson Avenue to connect the city’s four schools and upgrading and updating traffic signals on Wythe Creek Road at Victory Boulevard, Hudgins Road, Poquoson Avenue and Yorktown Road.

     Three-time wrestling champion headed to U.Va.

Poquoson senior Patrick McCormick signed a wrestling scholarship with Virginia last week and had his signing ceremony at his high school on Monday night.

McCormick has won three consecutive Group 3A individual state championships, the most recent a 2-1 win in the 126-pound final back in February. He went 43-5 last season and become the Islanders’ first four-time state champion since Mike Akers in 1999.

“If there’s anyone who’s going to stay poised, focused and methodical, it’s Patrick,” Poquoson wrestling coach Eric Decker told the Daily Press after McCormick’s win in February. “He understands body positioning and what he needs to do to win the tough matches. You have to limit your mistakes and capitalize on the other guy’s (mistakes) to win the tough matches, and that’s what Patrick does.”
