VA Shamrocks look locally for newest talent

- Since spring and summer in 2014, Prince William County has made a name for itself collectively with one of the most elite travel softball programs in Northern Virginia. That's when the Virginia Shamrocks developed a 16U team coached by long-time area travel baseball and softball coach Troy Toureau, best known for his work developing players with the Gainesville Cannons.

After two losses, P-Nats bounce back

- Just when the second half of the regular season seemed to start out as badly for the Potomac Nationals as the first half went as a whole, the 2014 Carolina League champions bounced back.

As BD AD retires, former director’s son takes over

- Seeing an athletic director with the last name of Cameron at Brentsville District High School is a thing of the past ... and future. This past weekend, retiring athletic director Jane Earman announced that Forest Park wrestling head coach Seth Cameron would be taking over for her as she moves to North Carolina. Given Brentsville's reputation as perhaps the most tight-knit community in Prince William County with the longest legacy, it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are family ties in the AD's office, both for the outgoing director and the incoming one.

- With the conclusion of the spring sports season, the numbers are in and it's safe to declare Battlefield had the best year in high school sports. The Bobcats accrued 19 Conference 8 titles when combining regular season and tournament tallies through June. That includes four during the fall, five in the winter and 10 during the spring. Battlefield also won Group 6A North Region wrestling and girls soccer titles.

Going out with a bang

- Placing second in the North Division standings at the end of the first half of the regular season doesn’t look bad on paper. The problem for the Potomac Nationals though is that runner-up status doesn’t quite clinch the automatic playoff berth the team’s grown accustomed to winning. In fact, it took three straight wins just to pull the defending 2014 Carolina League champion out of the North Division cellar before the all-star break.

Heritage Hunt names golf winners

- Heritage Hunt Golf and Country Club held its 2015 Three Club Challenge golf tournament on June 6. The event was a “three clubs and a putter two-person scramble” and the winners in each flight are as follows:

Courage goes to nationals

- Prince William County has a 13U boy's soccer team heading to the nationals. The Prince William Courage 01 Boys White recently won not just the state of Virginia but also the regional tournament held in Pittsburgh over Memorial Day weekend. Their victories landed them a spot as one of four teams in their age group playing at a national level.

Christ Chapel seniors up their game

- The Christ Chapel Academy’s (CCA) boys basketball team finished an impressive season with another run to the state championship game this year. Last season, Steve Brown, who went on to attend Bucknell University, became the first CCA male to receive a full athletic scholarship.
