For many years, the Sun Gazette’s online and print sports sections have included a college roundup of how local athletes are performing at the next level.
One of the reasons we do so is because there are so many from the Arlington, Great Falls, McLean, Oakton and Vienna communities performing at a high level collegiality. Those college roundups became a bit scares in recent months when sports were shut down because of the pandemic.
Now, however, most college sports programs are competing again, so the roundups have returned in our sections.
In this week’s Sun Gazette paper, and featured online as well, is a college roundup that includes former McLean High School standout softball players Bella Norton and Kate Covington, who play and start for the Indiana University and the University of Virginia, respectively.
There will be many more such roundups to come.
