Churchill has enthusiastically welcomed a new Athletic Director this year, Scott Rivinius, who is new to the position but not to the school or the everyday operations of team sports. Rivinius has taught in the CHS Social Studies Department for the past three years as well as served as the assistant varsity boys basketball coach during that time. Prior to becoming the head of the Bulldog program, Rivinius coached both football and boys basketball at a Houston,TX high school. He is a Massachusetts native who has also coached high school football and basketball in Topsfield, MA for four years, starting in 2004. Rivinius graduated from Elon College with a degree in History/Education after which he worked briefly for the Athletic Department of Ohio University. Rivinius is married and the father of a one-year-old son. Rivinius, above, addressed parents at Fall Sports Night. Photo by Mary Ellen Mengucci.
Girls Soccer is scoring its way to an impressive season. Currently ranked #9 by the Washington Post
and #3 by the Gazette, the team is a contender for the state championship. One key component of the team's success has been goaltender Senior Tania Mamdouhi, shown at right at a pre-season scrimmage against St. Andrews. Photos by Buck Phillips.
Varsity Field Hockey is having huge success with an excellent 7-2 record going into its last game,
Crew had an outstanding showing at the recent Scullers Head of the Potomac Regatta—one of the region's largest regattas—with all three entries for the co-ed club team setting team records in their races. The Men's Youth 8+ placed 10th out of 21 entries for the 2.8 mile course, finishing in 15:51.9 and outperforming boats from B-CC, Walter Johnson and Woodrow Wilson, among others. The hundreds gathered at Thompson Boat Center and Washington Harbor in Georgetown also saw Churchill’s Women's Youth 8+ come in with a time of 19:07.7, outpacing Walter Johnson, Woodrow Wilson and St. John’s College High School, among others. The WCHS Women's Youth 4+ crossed the finish in 22:47.8, ahead of entries from the Institute of Notre Dame and Woodrow Wilson.
