    3 Sep 2015 | 9:05 pm
    VIRGINIA BEACH With teammates dropping all around him and Landstown down 13-0 to Princess Anne, Eagles quarterback Bryson Stukes remarkably said he never felt any pressure to carry his team. His actions showed it. Despite five Landstown starters on the sidelines - several with potential season-ending injuries - Stukes orchestrated a 21-13 comeback victory that gave the Eagles a 2-0 start. Princess Anne was attempting to earn its first 2-0 start since 2001. "We just had to keep our focus because we knew we could pull out a win if we did," Stukes said. "I didn't give up on…

Redskins backup QB Colt McCoy threw for 208 yards and a touchdown, but Washington (3-1) fell short in its bid to finish the preseason unbeaten for the second time in three years. McCoy went the distance, playing alongside and against players trying…

    VIRGINIA BEACH It was business as usual when top-ranked Ocean Lakes played First Colonial on Thursday. The Dolphins made easy work of the Patriots, rolling to a 55-0 victory. But in the back of the players' minds was head coach Chris Scott, who is serving a three-game suspension after a Beach District investigation found the program had violated the Virginia High School League's rule on recruiting. What had many really concerned were rumors that their coach had been fired. Scott hasn't been fired, but the rumors have had an effect on the players and parents. So much so that…

By a thread The Tides (76-64), who have lost three straight and nine of 12, saw their lead over Gwinnett (75-65) in the IL South fall to one game.

  • Joint aquatics venture between City of Alexandria and Arlington County under consideration

    Chris Teale
    3 Sep 2015 | 7:00 am
    By Chris Teale (File photo) When a consultant prepared a report on the state of aquatics facilities in Alexandria last year, one of the more troubling findings for some was that only about 20 percent of swimmers were being provided for and 80 percent going elsewhere. With capacity problems and maintenance issues plaguing many of the city’s existing pools, the report found that a dramatic investment needs to be made in aquatics. City officials announced last month that a joint facility with Arlington County is under consideration either at Chinquapin Park or at Long Bridge Park in Arlington,…

    By Erich Wagner (File photo) An internal debate over the future of the Alexandria Fire Department bubbled to the surface last month, as a group of paramedics denounced the city’s ongoing transition from utilizing paramedics to using hybrid firefighter/medics. The change, which was proposed last year by Fire Chief Robert Dubé and began implementation this year, would see all future paramedics — those trained in advanced life support — also receive training as firefighters. The idea is to have someone capable of providing ALS on every ambulance and fire apparatus; currently, most fire…
