2019.05.07 Girls Lacrosse: Park View @ Dominion Sterling, VA (May 7, 2019) - Although they had not won a game in the Dulles District, the Park View Patriots were having a winning season overall. Their 6-5 record was a real accomplishment for a program that had not seen a great deal of success over time.

2019.05.06 Girls Soccer: Briar Woods @ Potomac Falls Potomac Falls, VA (May 6, 2019) - The Potomac Falls Panthers were reeling a bit. Their season had been one of streaks, and they were on a recent losing skid--and all three games were decided by one goal.

2019.05.03 Girls Lacrosse: Dominion @ Riverside When the Dominion Titans arrived at the home stadium of the Riverside Rams, they were on a twelve game winning streak and 5-0 in the Dulles District. Formidable, right? Well, not if you consider that the Rams were on an eleven game streak and 4-0 in the district. In other words, the only thing separ...

2019.05.02 Boys Soccer: Loudoun Valley @ Park View As opposed to the opening game of this double-header, the nightcap featured teams from the same schools but with markedly different aspirations for the postseason.

2019.05.02 Girls Soccer: Loudoun Valley @ Park View Sterling, VA (May 2, 2019) - The season is winding down and for some teams their playoff hopes are high. For others, the season has been long and tough and their post-season goals are more modest. When the Loudoun Valley Vikings visited the Park View Patriots, both teams were in that latter category...

2019.04.30 Boys Lacrosse: John Champe @ Briar Woods Brambleton, VA (April 30, 2019) - When choosing a game to photograph this late in the season, this writer checks the standings and looks for key matchups.

2019.03.01 Boys Basketball: GW-Danville @ Riverside

Playoff basketball at its best 2019 Class 4A State Quarterfinal

2019.02.22 Girls Basketball: Millbrook @ Loudoun Valley Purcellville, VA (February 22, 2019) - When you get to the regional championship it's often hard to gauge the matchup. Common opponents had been dispatched by both teams so that wasn't much of an indicator. And each team had a stellar regular season, cruised through the district tournament, and fair...

2019.02.22 Boys Basketball: Riverside @ Loudoun Valley Purcellville, VA (February 22, 2019) - They say it's hard to beat a team three times in one season, and that adage would be put to the test in this Region 4C Boys basketball championship. Back in January, in back to back games, the home-standing Loudoun Valley Vikings had beaten the visiting Riversi...

2019.02.13 Boys Basketball: Riverside @ Woodgrove Purcellville, VA (February 13, 2019) - Just moments into this Dulles District semifinal match between the Woodgrove Wolverines and the Riverside Rams, Woodgrove's Zach Johnson dove on the floor to knock a loose ball up to a teammate who easily scored. Leaving a tooth on the court, the gritty senior....

2019.02.13 Girls Basketball: Riverside @ Woodgrove Purcellville, VA (February 13, 2019) - The stands filled up early for the first of two Dulles District semifinal basketball matchups. In both the boys and girls divisions, the Woodgrove Wolverines were seeded second and the visiting Riverside Rams were seeded third.

2019.02.11 Boys Basketball: Heritage @ Riverside Lansdowne, VA (February 11, 2019) - Entering the first round of the 2019 Dulles District playoffs, the third-seeded Riverside Rams sported an excellent overall record at 16-6. Their opponent, the sixth-seeded Heritage Pride, had a much more modest record at 10-12.

2019.02.11 Girls Basketball: Loudoun County @ Riverside Lansdowne, VA (February 11, 2019) - What a night for the Riverside Rams. For the first time ever they would host not one, but two Dulles District playoff games. Both the boys and the girls teams had earned the third seed and the right to play the sixth seed.

A beautiful expression of the ordinary

2019.02.06 Boys Basketball: Millbrook @ Potomac Falls Potomac Falls, VA (February 5, 2019) – When you're on the verge of an undefeated season you may not realize just how special is the accomplishment.

2019.02.05 Boys Basketball: Loudoun Valley @ Woodgrove Purcellville, VA (February 5, 2019) – The gym was already packed following an exciting girls varsity basketball game.

2019.02.05 Girls Basketball: Loudoun Valley @ Woodgrove Purcellville, VA (February 5, 2019) – At 18-2 overall and 11-0 in the Dulles District, the visiting Loudoun Valley Vikings had already clinched the top seed in the post-season tournament. But the Woodgrove Wolverines, having an excellent season as well, were on a mission to establish a high seed o...

2018.02.04 Boys Basketball: Woodgrove @ Riverside Lansdowne VA (February 4, 2019) – There is just a week left in the regular season, and boys basketball playoff seeding in the Dulles District is still unclear. The Loudoun Valley Vikings are in the driver's seat, but the Woodgrove Wolverines and the Riverside Rams are battling for high seeds as we...
