Leesburg wrestler McHenry wins world championship

It's a common thing for Kurt McHenry to return home a conquering champion. The 16-year-old Leesburg resident attends St. Paul's School near Baltimore, and he comes back nearly every weekend to regale with tales of his latest triumphs on the wrestling mat. He's not usually returning home with a victory from eight time zones away, though.

Broad Run runs past rival Briar Woods

Broad Run needed a response. After scoring its second touchdown of the second half, Briar Woods trailed by just eight with plenty of time for another if it could get a stop on defense. Fortunately for the host Spartans, there was little doubt that they would get it and possibly even less about who would be responsible for it. Senior Meech Hembry scored on a 20-yard run with 3:05 left to give Broad Run the insurance touchdown it needed in a 36-21 win over crosstown rival Briar Woods on Friday night.
