Included in the district schedule is a Week 5 meeting with defending state champion Northside in Moneta September 26. Poston feels the Golden Eagles will be much improved from last season. Staunton River set two main goals in the off-season, get stronger and improve throwing the football. Poston says the Eagles have gotten a lot better in both areas, adding last year's 2-and-8 record spurred the team to work harder and come together more as a team. This will be the second year for Staunton River running the single wing.
