Sports Notebook: Schedule oddities

Must Read

The varsity football schedules are set for Arlington’s four teams and there are some interesting aspects about each.

For example, one of the 10 games for the private-school Bishop O’Connell Knights is a contest against the Annandale Atoms, a public-school team. O’Connell usually only plays private-school rivals.

In recent years, more games have been scheduled between public and private teams.

The public-school Yorktown Patriots have three straight non-league games against Concorde District teams Madison, Oakton and Westfield. How will Yorktown hold up in those clashes, as the Concorde District is considered the high-school football equivalent of the SEC in football?

The Washington-Liberty Generals have a Thursday night and two Saturday afternoon games on their schedule. Normally, W-L plays all Friday night games, as is the case for most public-school teams.

The Wakefield Warriors play their first two games on the road, then their final two at home.

The season is slated to begin for Wakefield, W-L and Yorktown on Aug. 27.

We’ll see what happens with those oddities to their schedules.
