A Brambleton Story
Meet the Ladner/Cleveland Family: "We are very excited to be a part of the Brambleton community. We were very familiar with Brambleton, especially with the Town Center, as we lived down the road in the Broadlands for the past six years. The Broadlands is a great community, but with the birth of our second child we were in need of more space. So began our search for a single family home. We visited most of the new developments between Ashburn and Frederick, MD, where I commute three days a week. We saw many nice houses, but for one reason or another most were not a good fit for us. Truth be told, we were not expecting much the first time we entered the Pulte Homes model that would eventually be our home. However, the interior blew us away as it had everything that we had been looking for with an upstairs layout that is hands-down the best (for us!) that we had seen. Most importantly, for the first time we were not just visiting a nice house but rather a place where we could envision raising our family and making memories...a home.” Read more here:

Practice makes perfect for Briar Woods
“Our practice field was a mud bath but we told our guys listen, ‘I don’t care how it is, it’s like old style football we just have to prepare.’ We had our best Thursday practice out in the mud,” Pierce said. “We had one dropped ball and we did all of our assignments right. That told me something there ... the guys stayed focused.” Briar Woods - who has outscored its four district opponents by a combined 192-9 this season - will host Heritage Oct. 14. Read more here:
