Montgomery County Public Schools runs a corollary sports program in county high schools to give students with 504 plans and/or IEPs the opportunity to compete in varsity sports. The corollary sports teams require 50% of the team members are students with 504 and/or IEP accommodations. The remainder of the team will be composed of our regular student population. Students must try out for these teams.
The spring softball season tryouts begin March 19. For further information about tryouts, watch for news and more information in the BLIPS and on the Booster Club Website. If you have any questions, or are interested in participating, please contact Churchill's Athletic Director, David Kelley at David_S_Kelley@mcpsmd.org

The Churchill Boys' Lacrosse program hosted a skills clinic at WCHS over two Saturday afternoons in February. Nearly 50 area boys, ages 6-14, participated. Members of last year's Varsity team and the Churchill lacrosse coaches ran the clinic, with instruction for beginners through experienced players. The Boys' Lacrosse program will use proceeds from the skills clinics to offset travel costs for upcoming tournaments and training activities.
A number of Churchill teams and athletes won county, regional, metro and state titles in February and early March. Below are just a few recent highlights. Don't forget to read about all of our teams' successes by linking to the Booster Website.
Boys' Varsity Basketball: The Bulldogs had an historic winning season, making it to the Varsity Regional Finals for the first time in 33 years. Although the team suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Magruder at the Regional Finals, the Bulldogs played a stellar season. See highlights, player accomplishments and records, photos and news coverage on the Booster Club Website.

Varsity Wrestling: Hunter Sutton, Sophomore Wrestler at Winston Churchill High School, won his second Maryland State Public School Championship at Cole Field House at the University of Maryland on March 3 in the 138-pound weight class. Sutton, who entered the Tournament with a 34-2 record this year, has tied the record for the second most state championships by an individual wrestler.
Indoor Track: Four Churchill students competed at the MD State 4A Indoor Track Championship Meet held on February 12: Senior boys Will Conway, Zach Weinstein, Nadim Elhage and freshman girl Lucy Srour. Out of 5 individual state champions from Montgomery County, 3 were from Churchill. Will Conway won the boys' 1600m for the second consecutive year; Nadim Elhage was first in boys' shotput; and Lucy Srour won the girls' 1600. Additionally, Zach Weinstein was fourth in the boys' 3200 and Will Conway was second in the 800. The three Churchill Boys placed third Maryland team overall at that meet.
Varsity Swim & Dive: Senior Tim Faerber and Freshman Kali Becker were named Maryland Diving State Champions in late February. Faerber clinched the state title after placing 1st at both the Division 1 and Regional 4A/3A Championships. Becker, who won every meet of the post-season, earned her state title with a score higher than the University of Maryland's pool record, where the state championships were held. Natalya Ares was the State Champion in the 100 Fly. Odin Soevik, Sammy Lee, Harrison Gu and Austin Cole set a Meet Record in the 200 Free Relay on their way to being State Champions. For more details on the State meet and the successful seasons of both Boys' and Girls' Swim & Dive teams, along with the stellar achievements of Faerber and Becker, see the Winston Churchill High School Booster Club Website.
