(April 21, 2014) – Freedom High School athletic director Matt Oblas announced Monday that he will leave the South Riding school this summer to become Riverside High School’s first Athletic Director. The Lansdowne high school is set to become Loudoun’s 15th public high school when it opens in 2015.
Oblas in a statement to the Freedom athletic community:
“I wanted to take the opportunity to let all Freedom athletes and parents know that I will be assuming the position of Athletic Director at Riverside High School (to open in Fall 2015 in Lansdowne) beginning July 1, 2014. I sincerely thank the wonderful community at Freedom, and I feel fortunate to have worked alongside outstanding coaches and an amazingly selfless FEABC board. Most importantly, however, I am honored to have been associated with incredible student athletes. I will personally cheerish many great memories, but I am confident that Freedom will only continue to improve athletically and in all areas of student life. The Freedom Athletic Director position will be posted by Loudoun County Public Schools in the very near future. I am thankful for the last seven years at Freedom and I look forward to seeing you at future athletic events.”
