The Briar Woods Falcons netted a big volleyball win at home Tuesday, defeating the Loudoun County Raiders in straight sets. The Falcons won the match 25-23, 25-20 and 25-11 to the delight of the home crowd in Brambleton.

Alice Rosales, Sydney Flowers, Megan McKee, Maggie Malloy, Chandler Manusky, Victoria VanDyke, Kelly Ryan, Grace Nathan and Lauryn O'Rourke played in each set for Briar Woods.
