Athlete of the Week – April 17: Sukrija Dudic

Hermitage High School, soccer
Sukrija Dudic, forward for the Hermitage varsity boys' soccer team, is determined to rebrand the Panthers' image. While Deep Run and Freeman have historically been more successful at soccer, Dudic has spent four years working to change the perception of Hermitage.

“I always tell my teammates, ‘We’re not the Hermitage that sucks,’” he said. “Other teams can’t stomp all over us. We’re here to fight and to win.”

Last year the seventh-seeded Panthers upset Lee Davis in the first round of the playoffs, and Dudic said that was a pivotal moment for the squad.

“I think Lee Davis viewed us as an easy win,” he said. “That game was a turning point. They realized that we don’t joke around. We just ended their season.” > Read more.

Athlete of the Week - April 10: Michael Zurasky


At 5-foot-8 and 150 pounds, Michael Zurasky knows that he must use his brain if he wants to succeed on the lacrosse field.

Zurasky has scored 13 goals and has 13 assists for Deep Run High School's varsity lacrosse team through the first three games of the season, and the senior attacker attributes this success to his ability to think.

“My lacrosse IQ is probably my number one assett,” Zurasky, 18, said. “As probably the shortest kid out there, I have to find ways to be crafty and stay one step ahead of the opponent.” > Read more.

Athlete of the Week – March 27: Walter Williams


Walter Williams cried tears of joy after Henrico won the 5A boys basketball state championship. The 6-foot-4 senior guard had come a long way since failing off of the team as a freshman.

“It was a very humbling experience that not everybody could say they have, to be state champs,” said Williams.

Williams scored 37 points against Bird in the region’s semi-finals, including the shot that sent the game into overtime at the buzzer. That shot incited wild celebration, and the crowd spilled onto the court. Henrico went on to win in double-overtime. > Read more.

Athlete of the Week – March 20: Annemarie Beran


Annemarie Beran was tired of Tucker basketball not being taken seriously.

“My freshman and sophomore year people just didn’t respect us,” Beran said. “They thought they could just come in and walk all over us.”
This year, however, after going 20-4 and finishing eighth in the Times-Dispatch rankings, opponents are viewing the Tucker Tigers in a different light.

Much of the team’s success can be attributed to Beran, who said that she and her teammates began preparing for the season last spring by returning to fundamentals. > Read more.

Breaking the chain

Chuy’s proves it’s possible to have many locations but retain unique feel

If you’ve driven through Short Pump in the past six months, there’s not a chance you’ve missed Chuy’s, the big and bold Tex-Mex restaurant in West Broad Village. From the outside, the brightly painted 8,000 square foot building gives a foretaste of what’s inside: eclectic decor, a fun menu, and from my experience, a lot of noise. The restaurant is a chain of 40 in the nation, but it’s the first of its kind in Virginia.

We were fortunate to arrive at 6 p.m. on a Wednesday, the perfect time for happy hour. From 4-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, there are drink specials, but what’s really special is the free nacho bar served out of a giant car hood. > Read more.
