When the VHSL announced plans for a new classification system last year, we knew major changes were in store. Virginia high school athletes will be crisscrossing the state this week as they head to their respective championship meets.

It has been a long layoff for many of the 6A North athletes as early conference meets and weather delays have created a 3 week gap in the schedule. Action will resume this Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 PM at the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, MD. Below you will find a meet preview for the 6A North Region Championship. Relays are not included as it is much harder to determine the potential finishes without knowing the legs for each school.
