Tuscarora nets first conference crown as Kaplan shuts door on Briar Woods

For four years, goalkeeper Courtenay Kaplan has walked by a board at school that displayed Tuscarora High School's conference champions - a board that did not include girls’ soccer. The board gave her a subtle, daily reminder of unfinished business for the Huskies. Now, Kaplan and her teammates have found their place on that elusive board.

Row your boat: The sport of crew takes off in Loudoun

Any weekday morning, rise before the roosters and head out to Beaverdam Creek Reservoir off Belmont Ridge Road in Ashburn. The lake's normally placid waters will be churned up and waving, as eight young people paddle madly across it, seemingly desperate to get to the other side. These young people will all be perspiring from the effort, even though their day's real work - school - is still a few hours away.

He would have loved to have been playing alongside many of his closest friends, playing at his favorite position of shortstop donned from head to toe in a No. 15 Falcons uniform. He would have certainly loved the final result, too.
