Booster News, April 2013 

Dear Booster Friends,

So long, winter coats and gloves! The chill has finally given way to April warmth, short sleeves and sunscreen. Likewise, Churchill's spring sports season is also heating up. Read on to see what's going on with our Bulldogs so far this spring.

The warmer temperatures also marked the countdown to the Booster Club's annual Spring Sports Fundraiser Gala on Friday night, April 26. Details are below. We hope you can join the fun!

At this time of year the Booster Club also looks ahead to the next school year and the election of the new officers who will lead the organization and fulfill its mission of supporting and promoting Churchill athletics. We are eager to get all of the 2013-14 officers on board before this year is out. All of those interested in serving the organization as Booster Club president, vice president or secretary should contact me ASAP at info@churchillboosterclub.orgSee you in the stands soon!

Go Bulldogs!

Spring Teams Get Off to a Great Start! 

 32113VBLaxvsHeights 2 WCHS Boys Lacrosse has racked up four wins for a rousing start to the season and is now ranked #3 in the state by LaxPower. Senior Matt Leonard was awarded the 'team hat' after the game against Blake in which he scored his 171st point, breaking the Churchill school record. The team hat is an honor players vote on to recognize an individual's contribution in a specific game. Shown at left is junior Steven Stillwell (face-off middie), who was recognized with the team hat for his efforts on the field during the season opener against The Heights. Photo by Linda Rhodes

For the girls, junior Julia Taladay won a silver medal (06:08.6) in the Varsity Girls Lightweight 1500 M race. For the Boys Lightweight 1500 M race, junior Lancelot Wathieu won a silver medal (05:24.2) and senior Charles Wathieu, a bronze (05:31.2).GirlsCrewFour2013-04
