Pioneer swim team goes deep

- Sometimes, Lisa Bussian plays around with her swim team's lineup the way some people fiddle with their fantasy football lineup. Not because she has to, but -- with 36 male swimmers and 37 female -- because she can.

After brief scare against OP, Stonewall girls stay perfect

- "We expected to beat them from the start." At face value, it's hard to justify why eighth-year Osbourn Park varsity girls basketball head coach Clifton Gorham set defeating undefeated Stonewall Jackson as his 7-10 team's expectation rather than just as a lofty goal.

Hot and cold

- When the Woodbridge varsity boys basketball team won 54-51 on Jan. 16 at home over Conference 4 rival Forest Park, the final score somehow didn't seem reflective of Woodbridge leading from the first quarter all the way through the end of the game.

Bobcat boys stay perfect in district

- From senior Kameron Hedgepeth's opening dunk to junior Jakin Thorne's hoop-and-harm classic three point play with 19 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter, the Battlefield varsity boys basketball team on Friday night kept control of a hectic, wildly fast-paced game against host Osbourn to stay undefeated on top of the Conference 8 standings.

Osbourn Park wins 16-team wrestling meet

- They came from across Northern Virginia, around the Commonwealth and beyond the borders to take part in the inaugural Joe Verciglio Memorial Wrestling Tournament Jan. 16-17 at Chantilly High School. Four of those grappling squads -- Osbourn Park, Battlefield, Gar-Field and Forest Park -- arrived from Prince William County, and the Yellow Jackets represented best as team champions.

Osbourn Park, Brentsville swimmers chart different paths, same goals

- As a Group 3A school in a county with a majority of Group 6A schools, Brentsville District can be overwhelmed in competitions with seemingly endless supply of athletes. Take this past Saturday's swim meet between Brentsville and Osbourn Park at the Central Park Aquatic Center.

Bobcats girls take first, boys second at OP

- This past Saturday, Osbourn Park hosted what you might call a local indoor track and field meet, given the number of Prince William County teams competing in Manassas. Yet the 19 high schools earning points in the girls events and the 20 that did the same in the boys events told of a much larger story, making the team wins by Battlefield (girls) and Woodbridge (boys) stand out that much more.

No rest for road-weary Raiders

- As a longtime head coach of the Stonewall Jackson varsity boys basketball team, Marcus Lawrence has something to say about his team's schedule this year. Since Dec. 22, his Raiders have been road warriors, playing eight games away from home including a holiday tournament in Chesterfield and a trip down to Virginia Beach. "I need to go in and talk with my athletic director," he joked.

Bulldog girls upset Panthers in basketball

- This was not supposed to be the Hylton varsity girls basketball team's third win of the season ... at least on paper. With red-hot Potomac, winners of four in a row, coming to Dale City six weeks after previously clubbing the Bulldogs 51-21 on Dec. 5, Hylton first-year head coach Lou Perkins had to figure out some way to at least keep his girls competitive through the first half.

End of an era

- It just ain't what it used to be. When Battlefield varsity football head coach Mark Cox told the players planning to return for the 2015 fall season that he planned to step down from the team before then, he did so as one of the last varsity sports founders still coaching at the 11-year-old high school.
