Catholic School Enrollment Ticks Higher — “It’ll be a smaller bump up in student population than a year before, but the 41 schools in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Arlington are building on a significant uptick from a year before. Total enrollment is expected to be nearly 17,000 students when classes return Aug. 24. That’s up about 2 percent from a year ago and higher by nearly 10 percent from two years before.” [Sun Gazette]

WHS Pole Vaulter is Second in State — “Looking back at his accomplished career as a high-school pole vaulter, perseverance might have played a bigger role in Justin Delgado’s success than his raw talent in the event. The 2022 Wakefield High School graduate recently capped his prep career in the sport with a runner-up finish at the Virginia High School League’s Class 6 outdoor boys track and field state meet with a personal best jump, by one foot, of 13 feet. The first-place winning height was 13-6.” [Sun Gazette]

YHS Is Second Overall in State — “For the Yorktown Patriots, the 2021-22 high-school sports season was historic, being the most accomplished ever for the Arlington school in state-tournament competitions. As a result of three Yorktown teams winning state championships and two others placing second, the school placed second with 410 points overall in the Virginia High School League’s final Class 6 standings in the competition to finish the highest in the annual National Guard Cup trophy.” [Sun Gazette]

Chair Cristol Adopts a Kitty — From the Animal Welfare League of Arlington: “When Arlington County Board Chair, Katie Cristol, stopped by the shelter this week, she was not intending to bring home a new family member… but then she met Lorrie! Congratulations to Lorrie and the whole Cristol family!” [Twitter]

Update on Fatal Seven Corners Crash — “Preliminarily, detectives determined the driver of a 2012 Honda Civic and the driver of a 2017 Volkswagen Jetta were both traveling northbound on Wilson Boulevard. The driver of the Honda was making a lane change from the left to right lane at the same time the driver of the Volkswagen was making a lane change from right to left lane. The Honda and Volkswagen collided together which caused the Volkswagen to go off the roadway to the right into the adjacent parking lot. The pedestrian, Albert Sweat, 62, of Maryland, was walking through the parking lot in the 6200 block of Arlington Boulevard.” [Fairfax County Police Department]

It’s Monday — Rain chances, including a dinnertime storm threat, until evening. High of 82 and low of 71. Sunrise at 6:30 am and sunset at 7:55 pm. []
