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.

Yellow Jackets out-duke Eagles 44-40

- With undefeated Stonewall Jackson cruising on top of the Conference 8 standings and Battlefield (10-3) still tied with the Raiders at three district wins a piece, there is an open fight for third and fourth place among the remaining three teams: Osbourn, Osbourn Park and Patriot.

Patriot hockey wins 5-2, faces OP next

- On Friday night, the Patriot hockey team started the 2015 portion of the winter season on the right skate to move up to 4-2 on the season. Facing a team comprised of students from Kettle Run High School, five different Pioneers scored while sophomore goalie Dominic Pinnisi allowed only a pair goals from Andrew Bayer and Brady Seitz as part of Patriot's 5-2 victory.

Time flies

- You don't have to remind Potomac varsity boys basketball head coach Keith Honore that his 2014-2015 team isn't the same as the Group 5A state champs he coached in Dumfries last season. He knows. Even with a line-up stacked with senior talent, Honore is taking the one-game-at-a-time approach this year instead of prospecting for a state title as the 2013-2014 team did during the pre-season before putting up a 28-1 record.

BHS boys fall just short to Rams

- Time and again, the Battlefield varsity boys basketball team battled back against the visiting Robinson Rams on Saturday evening, forcing nine ties throughout the game. Every time the Bobcats came back, the Rams had an answer -- including the final knock out in a 66-65 defeat of Battlefield in Haymarket Jan. 10.
