Updated April 24, 2012 Patriot's pitcher A. J. Johnson improved to 6-4 as Mason beat ODU, 16-6, in Fairfax on Sunday. He went six innings and allowed five earned runs. “A.J. has been fabulous for us,” Mason coach Bill Brown said. “He makes quality pitches. He works fast and throws a ton of strikes.” Brown also commented on fellow pitcher, junior right-hander Brandon Kuter. “We were looking to find a role for him,” Brown said of Kuter. “He is a guy who will be critical for us if we want to play in June,” he said, speaking of the possibility of winning the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) title. Mason is 13-8 and second in the CAA. ________ A.J. Johnson began his college career in the nation’s capital at George Washington University (GW…

The aging sign was repaired by Boy Scouts last month.
Wednesday, April 18, 2012
This announcement was submitted by Fairfax Station Railroad Museum Chair Michael Chinworth. A group of Boy Scouts led by Eagle Scout hopeful Edmund Sparrow replaced an aging sign for the Fairfax Station Railroad Museum on the corner of Ox Road and Fairfax Station Road. Edmund, a senior at Lake Braddock Secondary School, volunteered to undertake the project last month in fulfillment of his Eagle Scout requirement to carry out a community service project that would leave a lasting value. Edmund is a member of Troop 50, sponsored by the men's club of Holy Spirit Parish in Annandale. His childhood memories of visiting Fairfax Station and its train shows motivated him to volunteer for replacing the previous sign. “I've worn and outgrown at …

After blowing halftime lead, Robinson scores 38 fourth quarter points to stun Yorktown, 72-65.
How different can two quarters of basketball get? Lacking punch, Robinson entered the fourth quarter in yesterday's game trailing at Yorktown 40-34. The Rams only scored six third-quarter points. Apparently, they were just saving their stamina for a wild fourth quarter run. Robinson overcame a 10-point deficit with five minutes remaining and scored 38 fourth quarter points to beat Yorktown 72-65. "We just kind of lost our defensive intensity coming out at half," said Robinson Coach Brian Nelson, after Yorktown outscored Robinson 21-6 in the third. "We got a little too comfortable with our lead and Yorktown did a great job and made some big shots to come back. We just talked in between the third and fourth quarter; we got 8]eight minutes to…

Cavaliers Beat Rams 78-67 in Red Jenkins Tip-Off Classic. W.T. Woodson To Play In Classic Championship Against Paul VI On Friday.
Nervous energy, fresh faces and sloppy play are indicators of what an opening night high school basketball game is expected to feature. Woodson Coach Doug Craig supplemented that assessment in his Cavaliers' 78-67 win over Robinson in the 2010 Red Jenkins Tip-Off Classic. "I think early in the season you see a lot more ebbs and flows in the game, than you do later in the year when you see teams play at a much more consistent level," Craig said. "We have high expectations of ourselves this year. I think Robinson's much improved and they played pretty well and made some tough shots and kind of kept scrapping to stay in the game, and we couldn't put them away." Seconds after Robinson cut the Cavaliers' lead to 67-60 with less than five …

Rams Crush TC Williams, 35-2
Most plays that get negated due to penalty float away the moment the flag is picked up. Others still find a way to show up in the box score. On the Robinson Rams' first play from scrimmage this year, senior running back Jared Velasquez took a handoff from senior quarterback Mike LoPresti 42 yards to the end zone. The play was called back for holding, but it foreshadowed the long night ahead for Robinson's opponent, the TC Williams Titans. A quick-strike Rams offense and ball-hawking defense led the way, as the team opened the season in dominant fashion with a 35-2 victory over the Titans. Defense led to offense early in the game for Robinson. Williams senior quarterback fumbled a snap, leading to the Titans' first turnover of the night. On…
