Wright, a transfer from James Wood, will join four returning starters from a Handley team that advanced to the AA Region II tournament. Also joining the team is sophomore J.J. Dorsey, who shined in his first season as the football team's starting quarterback with more than 3,000 yards combined rushing and passing. . . . Heritage, in its fourth season, returns all five starters from a team that has posted back-to-back winning seasons after going 1-21 in its inaugural campaign. Shockley is the Dulles District's leading returning scorer, averaging 16.8 points per game including 49 three-pointers in 2004-05. . . . Millbrook, in its third year, returns two players from last year's team that made a run to the Virginia AA quarterfinals and will benefit from the transfer of Sherando senior swingman John Morgan (11.7 ppg). Groce, the returning starter at point guard, 7.4 points and 5.4 assists per game last season.
