Volleyball player Chelsea Kaser, a Briar Woods graduate who’s now a freshman at Muhlenberg College, was selected to the All-Centennial Conference second team, according to a press release from the school.

Briar Woods, Broad Run and Stone Bridge each captured big wins Friday night.
Ashburn high school football fans enjoyed a great night across the board Friday, as all three of the community’s teams ran a way with convincing wins by a combined score of 114-20.
