New Booster Masthead 3

Booster News, March 2013 

Dear Booster Friends,

Congratulations go out first to the many Churchill teams and student-athletes for their success during the winter season, and second to the student-athletes selected to play on one of the many 2013 spring sports teams! Practices are under way and games will begin next week.

In this issue, we focus on Bulldog team and individual accomplishments during the winter months—from the basketball teams and wrestlers to the swimmers, divers, runners and—last but certainly not least—our state champion club ice hockey team! 

The success of our student-athletes depends on a lot of factors, including the Bulldogpawprintblue 2strength of this Booster Club. The start of the new sports season brings with it the opportunity to recruit new families to our membership roster. If you are a parent of a spring student-athlete and are not a member of the Booster Club, go to our website to join quickly and easily online.

I also want to encourage our Booster community to celebrate Churchill athletics at our end-of-year Spring Gala on Friday, April 26 at Bowlmor Lanes in Bethesda. Read on to learn more about this fun and casual event.

Finally, don't miss our upcoming monthly meeting Wednesday night, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. in Room 124. All are welcome.

Go Bulldogs!
