Centreville (12-2, 3-1 Concorde)
The Wildcats’ 2-1 victory against Chantilly on Tuesday night makes the district race much more interesting, as the teams head into their final games of the year. The final meeting between the two team (May 11) could determine playoff seeding.
McLean (10-5, 7-3 Liberty)
The Highlanders didn’t have too much trouble beating South Lakes, 7-4, this past week, but a Tuesday night game with Stone Bridge proved challenging. McLean lost, 9-1, ending a six-game winning streak. Five games remain on the schedule with key meetings against Madison and Langley to end the year.
Chantilly (11-2, 4-1 Concorde)
Tuesday night’s loss to Centreville put the Chargers only one game ahead of the Wildcats in the district. But Chantilly’s upcoming district slate gives the team a chance to build a sizeable lead. Games against Westfield and Oakton are on the horizon.
Stone Bridge (11-4, 8-1 Liberty)
Since a 6-4 loss to Robinson to start the month of April, the Bulldogs have been on a tear — winning five straight. In those wins, Stone Bridge has given up only two runs and notched wins against McLean and Fairfax.

Stone Bridge (11-1, 8-1 Liberty)
Friday night’s game between the Bulldogs and Madison is one that shouldn’t be missed. The game pits the top two district teams against each other. Stone Bridge will be looking to use Friday to rebound from a 5-3 loss to McLean.
Madison (12-3, 8-2 Liberty)
