Fall Teams Get Ready for Early Season Successes  

Varsity and Junior Varsity Cheer started the season by sweeping all events in their divisions at the United Cheerleading Association Camp in Virginia. Each team was awarded Overall Camp Champion, Game Day Champion (cheer, chant and sideline) and Extreme Routine Champion (dance, stunts and tumbling). Varsity Cheer also earned a Leadership Award, voted on by all of the teams competing, for leadership qualities on and off the field. Below is the Winston Churchill 2013-14 Varsity Cheer squad. Photo submitted by Kelly Lavery

The Churchill cheer program will be continuing to build on past traditions to lead the enthusiastic Bulldog fans, all under the guidance of new Varsity Coach Margo Hopkins and second year Junior Varsity Coach Jen Johnson, who both expressed their pride in the girls' performance at United Cheerleading Association camp. The award-winning 2013-14 Junior Varsity squad is pictured below.

Crew has launched its season with a more rigorous five-day-per-week practice schedule (four water and one land) to be ready for its regatta competition this fall. The 50+ co-ed club team welcomed its 22 new members at a pool party this month, where novices completed a mandatory swim test. Special guest Olympic Rower David Banks (WCHS 2001) spoke to rowers and parents about his crew experience at Stanford University and later at the Beijing and London Olympics. For more information on this parent-run, self-supported club team, visit or email Photo by Sharon Dan

The "Build Your Own Burger" night was part of the team's annual training trip just before the start of the fall season. The trip gives the players and Head Coach Arnold Tarzy a chance to begin working together as a team, attend training sessions and participate in the Pocomoke Soccer Day games in Westover, Md. Photo by Mary Ellen Mengucci
