BRIAR WOODS FALCONS
Sat., Aug. 27 | 09:15 AM - The Briar Woods Falcons unleashed a smothering defense and emerging ground game to defeat the Tuscarora Huskies, 21-0, at home Aug. 26 in Brambleton, marking the start of what’s sure to be an intense and competitive 2016 varsity football season in Loudoun County. The Falcons avenged last year’s season-opening loss to the Huskies utilizing a strong mix of running, passing and trickery.
Thu., Aug. 25 | 09:00 AM - For the Briar Woods football program, this season is about a change in culture, a change in leadership and, the Falcons hope, a change in results. History suggests the results can be excellent. Briar Woods won three straight state championships from 2010 to 2012 and reached the Virginia 5A title game in 2013. More recently, however, is last year's excruciating 3-8 campaign, with three Falcon losses coming by a touchdown or less.
Wed., Aug. 24 | 09:42 AM - On Aug. 22, the sports pantheon of Loudoun County grew by one.

Freshly painted boundary lines graced the field of Ashburn's Rock Ridge High School, the site of two Opening Night showdowns. New goalie nets, seven feet tall and 12 feet wide, sat at both ends.
Wed., Jul. 20 | 01:56 PM - The wait is nearly over as the opening night of the 2016 varsity football season is less than six weeks away. Regular season play kicks off Aug. 26 with 14 of Loudoun's 15 public high schools in action. Week 1 features four games pitting Loudoun teams versus each other. John Champe hosts Woodgrove, Riverside hosts Rock Ridge, Briar Woods hosts Tuscarora and Broad Run plays host to Potomac Falls.
Tue., Jul. 12 | 03:08 PM - Briar Woods High School graduate Cam Serigne, a redshirt junior at Wake Forest, has been named to the John Mackey Award preseason watch list. Serigne is one of 45 named to the watch list for the award that goes to the most outstanding collegiate tight end.

Mon., Jul. 4 | 09:05 AM - Briar Woods third baseman Nathan Davis has earned first-team honors on the 2016 Virginia High School League Group 5A All-State baseball team. Lawton Riggs and Dave Mocabee of Stone Bridge, and Michael Ludowig of Briar Woods received second-team honors.

Wed., Jun. 15 | 01:24 PM - As you would expect, Briar Woods junior goalie Will Juneau was "mad" after Atlee scored twice in the final two-plus minutes of regulation to force overtime in the Virginia 5A state boys' lacrosse championship game June 11 at Lake Braddock High School. Undaunted, the Falcons once again responded with flying colors when it mattered most.
Sun., Jun. 12 | 08:55 AM - Saturday proved to be a day to remember for many local varsity athletes. A total of seven Loudoun teams claimed Virginia High School League state championships. Area teams combined to win four lacrosse titles, two soccer crowns and a softball championship.

Thu., Jun. 9 | 04:25 PM - The team that wasn’t supposed to make it has made it. The Briar Woods boys’ lacrosse team is one win away from achieving something that some would have considered unlikely just a few days ago. After upsetting 5A South Region champion Patrick Henry-Roanoke 9-7 in the state semifinals, Briar Woods now will face Atlee on Saturday for the Virginia 5A state championship.
