With the Dulles District season looming Dec. 19, Briar Woods, Tuscarora, Heritage and host Loudoun County competed in their final tune up at the Duals for the Warriors Dec. 15 in Leesburg.

The 10-team tournament, sponsored by Loudoun County High School and the Ranger Wrestling Club, benefited the Wounded Warrior Project.

Loudoun County coach Joel Caruso, also the tournament director, presented U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Anthony Rico with a plaque prior to the start of the tournament. Caruso served with Rico, a Purple Heart recipient who was wounded in Afghanistan. The Wounded Warrior Project had a display in the foyer and the Raiders raised more than $900 for the cause in sales of tournament T-shirts.
