Thu., Oct. 23 - Of the three high school golfers from Prince William County to compete in the state finals last week, none came home with the gold but all performed relatively well as a group.

Wed., Oct. 22 - Being bulldozed by the Bulldogs 47-6 wasn't the way Woodbridge fans wanted to celebrated their homecoming against visiting Hylton on Friday night during the varsity football game.

Wed., Oct. 22 - T. Clay Wood Elementary and Patriot High School were on lockdown for much of Monday after a domestic violence murder the day before ended with the suicide of the alleged gunman.

Wed., Oct. 22 - For eight minutes, the Woodbridge varsity football team held Hylton scoreless last Friday night. That's when the sails gave out on the Vikings' warship.

Wed., Oct. 22 - This fall, the Forest Park volleyball team has had just about as close to a season-long perfect game as the team could reasonably muster, winning every set of every game against 18 out of 20 opponents heading into this week. It's put the Bruins in position to wrap up the regular season Conference 4 title and give the girls from the eastern end of the county top billing heading into the playoffs as they attempt to finish the job the 2013 team started last year by making it to states as the regional runner-up.
Wed., Oct. 22 - On Oct. 21 at 6:58PM, investigators from the Prince William County Police Department's Crash Investigation Unit responded to the 13400 block of Jefferson Davis Hwy. in Woodbridge to investigate a crash involving a pedestrian.

At the same time, a pedestrian, identified as an adult woman, was crossing the street and was subsequently struck by the vehicle.
