<bt>Because of the recent sniper troubles, some important events at Woodson have been postponed and canceled. Fairfax County has decided whether to cancel outdoor activities on a day-by-day basis this week. Field trips are included in these decisions. In addition, homecoming activities are being rescheduled for the week beginning Nov. 18. Despite the many sports postponements and cancellations, Woodson's football team was able to play South Lakes in Richmond. Woodson finally prevailed, winning the game in quadruple overtime, 40-34.
