Virginia public schools and most private schools began their seasons this past weekend, and the area’s top teams were mostly successful.
D.C. power H.D. Woodson was the only ranked team to drop a game over the weekend, falling to Martinsburg (W.Va.). Otherwise, the D.C. area was represented well against out-of-town opponents. In the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference, St. John’s, Gonzaga, DeMatha and Good Counsel beat nationally respected foes.
