Throughout the school year, Oakton Patch works hard to keep readers updated on the athletic achievements of Oakton High and Flint Hill School students. But what happens once those athletes leave high school?
With strong programs at both high schools, many students have opportunities to continue with athletics in college. And some are talented enough for a post-collegiate athletic career.
This weekly feature highlights what graduates from Oakton High and Flint Hill School are accomplishing beyond high school.
