Bobcat girls, boys run the table in Conference 8 track

- When it comes to outdoor running events in western Prince William County, Patriot sophomore Rachel McArthur has made a name for herself in her second varsity season with a slew of gold medals. Sure enough, she more than held her own last week in Haymarket during the outdoor track and field Conference 8 title by winning the girls 1,600 and 3,200-meter runs and helping the Pioneer girls 4x800-meter relay cruise to their own victory too.

Champions galore in western Prince William

- Battlefield High School closed out the spring sports regular season with a slew of Conference 8 championships, winning five out of 10 available titles, by far the most among the five Cedar Run District teams.

Forest Park aims to keep winning into postseason

- Talk with Forest Park's second-year head coach Simone Qura about the philosophy he uses in guiding the Bruins' boys soccer team, and a certain theme arises. The words discipline, chemistry, trust and communication come up often, all words geared toward Qura's ideal of playing together as a team.

Pioneers beat back Battlefield 7-5 for first baseball title

- Patriot slightly edged Battlefield both in terms of the final 7-5 score on Friday and in attendance at the baseball game that provided a minor league atmosphere in terms of audience celebrations and jeers directed toward the action on the field. It's typical for the rivalry between the two teams, which dates back to 2012.

Conference 8 tennis titles up for grabs

- Which teams will take home the Conference 8 regular season tennis trophies won't be known for sure until the end of this week. That's because of the conference happens to be super competitive this year on both the boys and girls sides. Entering this week, the Battlefield boys controlled their own destiny with an undefeated record in conference play heading into the final week of the regular season.

Hylton boys ride lax winning streak into final stretch

- At 5-8-1 last year, it's not like the Hylton varsity boys lacrosse team was particularly bad. The Bulldogs just couldn't reach .500. And when they went up against a power squad in Forest Park, they were twice shellacked, first by a 15-2 margin and then by an 8-2 score that closed the season.
