Tigers win The Wrench wrestling tournament

- Maybe it shouldn't come as a surprise that Brentsville District and Forest Park are both undefeated on their home mats. This past weekend in Nokesville, the Tigers' varsity wrestling team won The Wrench Round Robin tournament at their home gymnasium, capturing 265.5 points.

PHS falls 67-32 to Vikings in girls hoops

- When each of your starters earn double digit point totals in high school basketball, chances are you're putting yourself in position for victory. That fate played out for the Woodbridge varsity girls team on Dec. 10 against visiting Patriot.

That just happened

- The smile on Tyree Hill's face showed more than just excitement over banking in a jump shot late in the fourth quarter against a district rival. It's not like the Stonewall Jackson varsity basketball team needed it to win against Patriot; it merely put the Raiders up 92-67 in a game ultimately decided by a 102-70 margin.

Fighting back to the top

- Throughout the latter half of this century's first decade, Gar-Field had a wrestling program to be envied. Nearly every weight class was filled by a victory-amassing stud, making the Indians one of the top teams in Virginia. Now, as the midpoint of this decade nears, Gar-Field has become more of an also-ran. Just two Indian grapplers made it to the Group 6A South Regional tournament last winter.

The stings of victory

- The Battlefield varsity boys basketball team improved to 4-1 for the winter season last Friday night in Manassas, defeating host Osbourn Park 82-73. The win marked the Bobcats' second Conference 8 victory of the season, after they dispatched Osbourn 75-72 on Dec. 5.

Battlefield girls strong in opening week

- Opening the season with three games in five days? No problem. For the second year in a row, the Battlefield varsity girls basketball team roared in the opening week of the regular season, this time sweeping T.C. Williams, Osbourn and Potomac.

Crashing the boards

- Last Friday night, the Woodbridge Vikings won their home opener at the Prince William Ice Center with a 4-2 victory over Osbourn Park. Despite a strong effort from Osbourn Park senior Nathen Mabbitt, who scored both of the Yellow Jackets' goals, Woodbridge managed to spread the puck around offensively more effectively than the visiting team from Manassas.

Pioneer wrestlers ready for winter season

- In Woodbridge this past weekend, the Patriot wrestling team faced its first test of the year at the Forest Park Duals. The Pioneers came within one pin of tying two of the top three teams of the tournament in head-to-head matches but ultimately lost both times. Patriot fell to the host Forest Park 42-36, marking the closest showing any team came against the host Bruins on their way to winning the tournament championship 48-28 over Lake Braddock. Third place Annandale also just edged out Patriot 43-37.

McArthur takes 25th in nation

- Patriot sophomore Rachel McArthur officially ran out the clock as the last athlete from Prince William County competing in the high school sports fall season this past Saturday in Oregon. At the Nike Cross Nationals girls championship at Glendoveer Golf Course in Portland, Ore., McArthur claimed 25th place overall out of 199 runners competing for the national cross country title.
