Josh Barr arrived at The Washington Post in the fall of 1995 and spent much of the next two years covering high school sports. He then covered the University of Maryland football and basketball teams for most of the next five years. He was The Post’s Orioles beat writer in 1998, when Cal Ripken ended his streak and in 2002 he wrote a book about the Maryland men’s basketball team’s national championship. He has spent the past eight years covering high school sports and college recruiting. Along the way, he has covered everything from the NBA playoffs to the Stanley Cup Finals and from boxing to auto racing, but has yet to write about horse racing, figure skating or the Olympics.
