Armstrong HS will be receiving $80,000 in state funds to shore up security at the school:
School leaders are offering a closer look at how millions of dollars will be put to use for security enhancements at Virginia schools. Armstrong High School is the only school in Richmond to receive state funds.
As of now, Armstrong has about eight cameras up and running but administrators say they’re out of date. Within six months, they hope to install up to 35 new cameras – which could go a long way in keeping students safe.

The Armstrong Wildcats lost 65-53 to the John Marshall Justices in the Central Region semifinals last night at VCU’s Siegel Center:
The Justices (24-4) held the lead almost the entire night. They built a 12-point lead in the first quarter, but Armstrong cut it to six by halftime and took a one-point lead late in the third. […]
Capital District player of the year Tavon Mealy of the Wildcats scored 16 points, but was held to only four in the first half. […]
“They’re a good, tough team,” Ty White said of Armstrong, adding that it was great for the city of Richmond to have two of its teams in the region semifinals. “We’re the same breed. We’re cut from the same cloth.”

Ranked 12th in the state going into last night, the Armstrong Wildcats (14-2, 7-2) boys’ basketball team dropped a close one to the rival Henrico Warriors 72-71:
On Jan. 3, Armstrong gave Henrico its only district loss when the Wildcats beat Henrico 74-72. In both games, Henrico built first-half leads, only for Armstrong to rally back.
This time, when Armstrong held a 45-35 third-quarter lead, Henrico responded.
MaxPreps gives props to Rob Valentine for his effort in the game:
“Big Shot” Rob Valentine hit 7 three pointers and scored 26 points as the Armstrong Wildcats lost a close game to the Henrico Warriors. The game was highly contested and went downt to the wire. Valentine’s big shots kept the Wildcats in striking distance for a victory, however they came up short. Great job Rob.
The Wildcats’ next game is Thursday, January 31 at 7PM at home vs the Varina Blue Devils.
