Governor's Schools, Boys State, and Girls State Students

Virginia Governor’s Schools provide some of the state’s most able students academically and artistically challenging programs beyond those offered in their home schools. With the support of the Virginia Board of Education and the General Assembly, the Governor’s Schools presently include summer residential, summer regional, and academic-year programs serving more than 7,500 gifted students from all parts of the commonwealth. The following Stone Bridge students were accepted into the 2021 Summer Residential Governor's School:

  • For Math, Science, and Technology (MST) – Brett Wilson
  • Alternate for Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) – Rachel Emch


The Ashburn Leonard W Kidd American Legion Post 2001 will again sponsor both girls and boys to attend Boys State and Girls State activities this year. The program is quite prestigious but more importantly, allows students to learn and live in an environment that stresses Civic Mindedness/American Citizenship. Attendees learn about our democratic government and actually run their city and state governments. Boys State will be held at Radford University and Girls State will be held at Longwood University.

  • For Boys State - Brandon Fobes
  • For Girls State - Kyra Campbell and Kyra Padam


Congratulations to all!

Athletics Updates from our Coaches

Soccer

The boys soccer team finishes the regular season on Friday night, June 4, at Riverside. To date, the team has 6 wins and 2 losses, and has conceded the fewest goals (8) of any team in the region. The team begins regional play on Tuesday, June 8 against Potomac Falls at home.

The team also celebrated 17 seniors as part of Senior Night on June 2 against Potomac Falls. The coaching staff is grateful for their contributions these last few years, and wishes them the best in their future plans!


Our Varsity & JV Girls Soccer Teams have ended their regular seasons with hard-fought and well played games against Potomac Falls and Riverside this week. We are very happy and excited with their performance and look forward to seeing the new friendships made this year bloom and grow. We look forward to travelling to TJ next Tuesday 6/8 to play in the regional quarterfinals. If our Lady Bulldogs grab the win they will face either Potomac Falls or Woodgrove in the next round of competition.


Softball

Varsity Softball won 4-0 this week. Kayla Fekel had all the right stuff on Tuesday for SB allowing zero runs and striking out 15. Veronica Kidwell started the scoring by knocking in Olivia Smith, who started the inning with a leadoff triple. SB notched three runs in the seventh inning behind hits by Fekel, Mairin McCarthy and Olivia Smith. Fekel and Smith accounted for the 3 RBIs in the 7th. JV softball lost to Briar Woods and beat Rock Ridge.


Baseball


The baseball team lost to Briar Woods 3-2. Zach Mazur hit his first home run and Mikey Hafer struck out 9 Falcon hitters while scattering 3 hits.


Track

The track team was off this week due to inclement weather. The Bulldogs will compete again next week at the region championship on Monday 6/7 at Rock Ridge High School.


Lacrosse

Boys' Lacrosse celebrated their seniors this week before a tough match against Potomac Falls. Our three-game win streak came to an end after a 21-13 loss. The boys are looking to bounce back for a first-round playoff win against Freedom this Monday. The program would like to thank all of its seniors again for the hard work they have put into this team.


Last Friday 5/28 the girls varsity lacrosse team lost a hard-fought game in overtime 19-18 to Freedom High School, one of the best games they have played all season. Working as a team to play outstanding lacrosse, freshman Allyson Ryan lead the team with an impressive 7 goals, closely followed by Senior Erica Lawernce adding 5 goals and sophomore Avery Moon adding 4 goals. Bulldogs followed with a win on the road vs Potomac Falls this past Tuesday 6/1. Goals were scored by Allyson Ryan (7), Avery Moon (4), Lauren Cole (2), Beca Rosales (1) and Erica Lawernce (1). The girls will face Woodgrove in the regional quarterfinals Monday June 7th at home!

Rowing Team

Stone Bridge Rowing battled the elements to ‘Protect the House' this week. The team endured 50 degree temperatures, driving rain, and intense winds at the Darrell Winslow regatta at Sandy Run Regional Park on the Occoquan Reservoir on May 29, 2021. SBHS competed in 8 races against 190 other boats from a myriad of schools across the Northern Virginia region.


The Men’s Junior Varsity 4 and Women’s Novice 4 boats took 1st place; the Men's Junior Varsity 4x and Women’s Novice 8 boats took 2nd place; and the Junior Varsity 8 boat took 3rd place out of all competitors in their classes.

More information about the team, details about upcoming regattas, and photos are available on the team’s website.

Volunteers Needed for Senior Picnic

The Project Graduation team still needs volunteers to help run the games and other activities at the Senior Picnic on Thursday, June 10, from 11:00am to 3:00pm. Traditionally we rely on underclass parents to "Pay it Forward" so that senior parents don't have to volunteer for their own graduates. We will need a lot of volunteers to deliver an amazing event for the Class of 2021. Please consider helping for a shift or even all day if you can. Sign up today!

Yearbook Pickup

Our yearbooks have been delivered and will be ready for pickup soon! We are so proud of our students for putting together a beautiful and comprehensive yearbook even in such a difficult year as this was.

  • Seniors - June 7th, 9 AM - 1 PM
  • Grades 9-11 - June 7th, 2 - 4 PM
  • Makeup Day - June 14th, 10 AM - 12 PM
