Leonard leads the region in goals and Dubick leads in assists.                                                                                                                                           BoysJVLacrosse2013-05 2

Both WCHS Outdoor Track Boys and Girls went undefeated in regular season meets to win dual division titles. The team will carry this position into the MCPS Outdoor Track County Championships, to be held at Churchill May 8. While on the way to the stellar record throughout the season, the team hosted its second annual Friday Night Spikes event, a popular dual meet against rival Wootton High School. The event was a great success both in terms of high caliber competition as well as raising awareness and funds for Autism Speaks. Sophomore Samantha Lee designed shirts for the event, which were sold to support the cause. Shown below is the starting line for the girls 1600 meter race. Junior Breanna Boggin (second from right) won the matchup with a time of 5:32 with teammates juniors Paula Rabade, Safiya Hill and Genevieve Garland, along with freshman Meredith Srour, all crossing the finish line in under 6 min.

WCHS Varsity Baseball  had a lot to celebrate last Thursday during the last home game of the regular vbaseballsrnitealbersandflip2013season. With strong pitching from juniors Ryan O'Carroll and Eric Brodkowitz, the Bulldogs beat Sherwood (the 2008 Maryland 4A state champions) 5-4 after an 11-inning battle. The victory was preceded by a senior night ceremony honoring the team's two graduating seniors, Michael Albers and Charles DeFilippo, both of whom serve as team captains. Albers, left, will attend the U.S. Naval Academy in the fall and DeFilippo, right, will attend the University of Pittsburgh. The Varsity team, led by head coach Scott Blackwood, has a 6-10 record.

The JV Baseball squad finished its season April 26 with a 5-7 record, including five games decided by two runs or less. This young Bulldog team (which had more freshmen than sophomores), saw several of its players called to the Varsity squad to support and replace injured Varsity players. The JV team was led by Coach Timothy Nori and sophomore JV captains Ethan Denicoff, Oliver Pflieger, Griffin Horn, Jesse Katz and Jack Langerman (who played on Varsity most of the season). Congratulations to both teams for attaining 100% membership in the Winston Churchill High School Booster Club!
