Week in Review: March 20
-- Millbrook wrestling coach Chris Haines has announced he'll be leaving the program. Haines has helped the Pioneers develop into one of the area's top overall teams. See the full story in Saturday's issue of the Northern Virginia Daily.
-- Sherando football player Jacob Sumana was announced as one of Shepherd's newest football commitments. Sumana starred on the defensive line for the Warriors this season.
-- Central's Ashley Ebersole continued her torrid start to the season, belting her fourth homer. We at the Daily usually take a few weeks before summoning coaches to send in stats, but there's no secret who will be on top of the home run list when the stats debut. An early Player of the Year leader?
-- Speaking of All-Area teams, we are almost complete with the Daily's Winter All-Area Section, which will feature six stories (three players and three coaches). The special insert will appear in the April 3 issue of the Daily.
-- On the non-local front, Virginia men's basketball coach Dave Leitao resigned early this week. Could VCU's Anthony Grant be among those considered for the position? Anybody want to speculate on potential candidates?
-- Speaking of VCU, the Rams were bounced in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday. The only other state school -- Radford -- was blown off the floor against the Tar Heels. That leaves Maryland, who beat Cal, and WVU, who is playing Dayton as I type this, as the lone "regional" teams still in the tournament.
