The Wildcats lose to the Wolverines, 27-20.
After a long and challenging game Friday night, the Centreville Wildcats lost to the West Potomac Wolverines, 27-20. Going into Friday night’s game, both head coaches had their concerns about their opponent. Chris Haddock, head coach for Centreville, said the Wildcats were concerned about the Wolverines’s speed. “Every week we have a different concern. They have speed, and there are a few kids they have that can be dangerous. But every snap is a learning experience,” said Haddock. “We have some young players, but we’re going to go out and have a good game tonight.” Jeremiah Davis, the new head coach for West Potomac High School, was concerned about the Wildcat’s offense, describing it as tough to prepare for. “Coach Haddock is very …

Basketball teams take-down Hornets, plus an indoor track update.
Westfield boys’ basketball on five-game win streak Coach Doug Ewell’s varsity Bulldogs (13-3, 4-0) came out on the winning side of a rugged battle with Herndon last Thursday night, edging the Hornets in double overtime, 73-62. Down three points at the half, Westfield rallied late in the game behind strong performances from Kris Perry and Quentin Basil to force double-overtime. The bulldogs gained a slight lead, forcing Herndon to foul, and eventually outscored the Hornets 14-3 in the final OT, including 12 straight free throws, to eek out the victory. “We started off on a 10-0 run and we were down 29-26 at halftime,” said Coach Doug Ewell. “We had some turnovers, but the third quarter was back and forth – I think we had 10 or 12 lead …

Tim Tebow whisked Kelly Faughnan on a date to the College Football Awards, and in December brought her to a Broncos game.
Even though the football season has ended for Denver quarterback Tim Tebow, his star still shines bright in the household of Kelly Faughnan, whose serendipitous encounter with him at an amusement park led to a date at the College Football Awards. ”I just think he’s great, a really nice guy,” said Kelly, 22, from the living room of her Clifton home just minutes before the NFL playoff game Saturday night between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. The story of the gentle friendship between Faughnan and Tebow is noteworthy because it is an anomaly in the brutal world of professional football. Tebow, who led his team on a phenomenal run until Saturday, has been criticized for his faith and his open talk about his belief in God. …

Westfield High School weekly sports recap.
Doug Ewell’s boys’ varsity basketball squad (12-3, 3-0) continued district competition last week with dates against Robinson and archrival Centreville. Led by a stalwart defense and hot-handed Zach Elcano, Westfield steamrolled the Rams and Wildcats both by double-digit margins, 58-40 and 64-35 respectively. “We have some seniors who are busting their butt doing their jobs,” said Ewell regarding the team’s success. “We just have to find a way to keep it going." Elcano, who averages 13-points per game, led the Bulldogs with 15 against Robinson, while Chris Mullins tallied 11 points and knocked down a team-high three 3-pointers. Julius Rosa and Quentin Basil each hit one from downtown and racked up nine points apiece. The Bulldogs have won …
About 5,000 people attended the opening, organizers estimated.
The nZone, a former Budweiser distribution building converted to a sports facility, gym and worship center by New Life Christian Church, opened on Saturday, Jan. 14th. Read more about the facility's opening.
New Life Christian Church held the grand opening of the nZone, a former Budweiser facility converted to a church and sports facility.
New Life Christian Church isn't a conventional congregation. "No perfect people are allowed at New Life. Come regardless of your hurts, habits and hang-ups. We’re a place full of messed up people," the church's website proclaims. So perhaps it's fitting that the congregation's new house of worship isn't exactly conventional, either. The church recently moved from its former home at Westfield High School to a renovated Budweiser building in Chantilly. They've named it the "nZone," which doubles as a sports facility and gym during the week and a church on Sundays. On Jan. 14th, the congregation held the grand opening, complete with free food, games, moonbounces and autographs by current and former Redskins Evan Royster, Darrell Green and …
