The Cavaliers haven't had a winning season since 2000, and they've won only four games in the past nine years - six of which have been winless.

This win for the city highlights what we typically regard as a role of, and certainly an accomplishment of, the Alexandria Economic Development Partnership.

    (Photo/Chris Teale) It may seem like a relatively minor issue, but the dire state of the press box at T.C. Williams’ Parker-Gray Stadium is a symbolic and logistical nightmare for the school’s rebuilding football program. For the second year in a row, Alexandria City Public Schools has deemed the shambolic structure atop the stadium’s home bleachers unsafe and unfit for use. Although it is not officially condemned, the door is locked shut and nobody is allowed inside. Let’s get the obvious complaints out of the way: the press box makes Alexandria’s only public high school look bad,…
