Alex Ha, the Marriotts Ridge wrestling team's 160-pound senior captain, has come a long way in a short time since he picked up the sport when he first came to the school as a sophomore. He was admittedly overmatched that first season, the first year for the school and program, but he proved to be a quick study. After winning just one varsity match as a sophomore, he came back last year to qualify for the regional tournament. This season, his goal is to qualify for the state tournament. He is off to a good start, with a 10-4 record despite missing some early action because of a shoulder injury.

A car drives by above the soccer fields and the buzz begins: "That's Claudio," one camper yells in excitement. False alarm. Then another. And then finally, the team captain of the U.S. men's national team, fresh off its quarterfinal performance in this summer's World Cup, had arrived.

On days before a game, the Marriotts Ridge boys soccer team cranks up the intensity for the last precious few minutes of practice. The team splits into three groups, with two on the field at a time. They are crammed inside the penalty area, with two goals placed at each end. A ball is thrown in the middle and the feisty fray - simply dubbed "The Game with the Goals" - begins. Pinball-like shots, courageous defense and a fair share of trash talk follow. The first team to score twice stays on the field, while the loser leaves.
