Congratulations to CHS Boys Soccer for becoming the first fall sport teams to achieve 100% membership in the CHS Booster Club! The Junior Varsity team (shown below at the start of its 2013 season) reached this milestone on the last day of September. Just four days later, the Boys Varsity team secured 100% Churchill Booster Club membership, as well.

Both Bulldog teams are enjoying successful seasons on the field, too. Junior Varsity, led by first-year Head Coach Eric Cava (above, standing far right), holds a solid 3-1-2 record. Varsity, led by Head Coach Arnold Tarzy (standing front left in the photo at the annual Boys Soccer car wash fundraiser in August), boasts an impressive 6-2-1 record.

Junior Varsity Field Hockey is enjoying an impressive 6-2 season, including a 4-0 shutout last weekend against Paint Branch. A team defensive standout has been goalie sophomore Jenny Robinson, who saved four shots during regulation play and three shots in overtime during a recent outing against B-CC. On offense, sophomores Maggie Nardi and Madison Kanstoroom, as well as frosh Lauren Lipson, Joanna Kramer and Sydney Weinstein, have scored in various match-ups for the Bulldogs.
