The season opener for Northern Region schools in Virginia pitted two NTN Southeast ranked squads against each other in SE #5 Thomas Jefferson Science & Tech and SE #8 West Springfield. There was no surprise in Thomas Jefferson coming out as the winner by a 35 point margin of victory as their superior depth was shown by placing seven runners ahead of West Springfield\'s #5. Meanwhile, the Lake Braddock girls started off their 2006 season in impressive fashion at the Monroe Parker Invite as they won by a 45 point margin over Westfield with four runners in the top 14 places.
