The Deepest Team Ever? Loudoun Valley 2017 vs Chantilly 2012 Nolan Jez Aug 31, 2017

Virginia has definitely had some dynasties in cross country. We've had teams nearly sweep a decade's worth of XC team titles and we've had quite a few teams make NXN and be untouchable on the state level.

Athlete Spotlight: Andrew Hunter (Loudoun Valley) Brandon Miles Sep 26, 2013

Loudoun Valley sophomore Andrew Hunter has quickly become the state's best underclassmen distance running talent this fall and a runner to keep on the radar for the next few years to see if he develops to become a elite competitor on the national stage. Hunter was the second highest finisher from the state of Virginia in a loaded Oatlands Invitational this past weekend cross the finish line ahead many of the state's best runners in a new 5K personal best time of 15:45, which is the 16th fastest time among all 10th graders in the United States this cross country season. 

Athlete Spotlight: Audrey Houghton Brandon Miles May 6, 2010

Loudoun Valley sophomore Audrey Houghton has to do a quick turnaround between her top two events of the 400 meter dash and 800 meter run with the 300 meter hurdles as her only break to separate her two races. The limited recovery time has not affected her this outdoor season though as she currently has the Northwest Region's fastest time and several invitational wins in the 400 meter dash, while most recently running a PR time of 2:18 in the 800 meter run doubling back from a 400 win at VMI. With the perfect mix of speed and endurance, Houghton (pictured right by John Herzog) seems destined to become a great 800 meter runner as the district champion and top 25 finisher this past cross country season might have the fastest open 400 PR out of any competitive runner from the fall season at 57.35. Houghton is the top seed in both the 400 and 800 on Friday at the Loudoun County Championships. Read more for interview with the Loudoun Valley sophomore...

Cedar Run District Championships Virtual Meet Preview Brandon Miles Oct 27, 2009

The Cedar Run District looks much different this year with Osbourn Park having moved into the Cardinal District and Heritage High School in Leesburg moving up into the Group AAA district. With no Osbourn Park, it should make life easier for the Battlefield boys and Loudoun Valley girls to win district titles. Battlefield is expected to win the boys' team title by a large margin and will be one of several schools vying for a state meet berth next week in Charlottesville at the Northwest Region Championships. Both Darren Driscoll and Garrick Clemente (both pictured by Nicoll Knudsen) are younger brothers of former star runners at Battlefield High and also the district's top two individuals with Driscoll having ran the fastest time in the Cedar Run District at a 16:21 season best 5K. Loudoun Valley girls might get an honest challenge from Battlefield as the team's top two runners will face off for the individual district crown in Battlefield freshmen Nicole Carter and Loudoun Valley sophomore Audrey Houghton having almost identical season best times in the 19:20's.
