Wednesday, February 26, 2014 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Head coach Mike Frew saw his Golden Hawks boys' basketball team let a 21-point lead in the fourth quarter disappear during Friday night's District XI AAA quarterfinals against Salisbury.

But while the Falcons went on a 16-6 run to start the final frame and pull to within five points with 20 seconds remaining, there was never any sense of panic on the Golden Hawks' bench.

The No. 5 seed Golden Hawks (12-12) held on down the stretch, earning a 73-66 win over the No. 4 seed Falcons (15-9) and advancing to the semifinals for the second consecutive season.

Liberty's Kevin Zakszeski stared down a birdie putt on hole 10 during last week's District 11 Golf Championships at Blue Ridge Country Club.

It wasn't any ordinary putt, however.

Compared to a par on hole 10 earlier on the day Tuesday, Zakszeski's birdie putt on that same hole hours later was in a playoff hole against Northampton's Tyler Smith. The winner would be awarded a sixth place finish in districts and the final regional spot.
