Booster News, November 2012 

Greetings, friends of the WCHS Booster Club!

I want to thank all of you who have joined the WCHS Booster Club this fall. Your support helps the Booster Club do its work to support our great student-athletes! We provide that support through fundraising: last month we held our annual Bulldog Golf Classic at Whiskey Creek to raise money for Churchill’s sports programs and the Brian Song Memorial Scholarship Fund. In two weeks, we’ll hold our second Pampered Chef fundraiser, led by our own Lynn Grody and to be held at my house! Details are below. All are welcome!

Your support allows the Boosters to make significant contributions to Churchill’s facilities: this week the main gymnasium reopened after the floor was completely stripped and refinished, thanks to Booster funding.

Your support helps us get the word out to a wide audience about the extraordinary achievements of our student-athletes. You’ll read below about the outstanding performances of the Bulldogs this fall season.

If you are reading this message and are not a current member of the WCHS Booster Club, it’s not too late! Signing up is easy. Go to Join the club and be an important part of the work we do to support our kids. If you’re interested in learning more about Booster Club activities, join us at our monthly meeting this week, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in Room 126 (across from the auditorium entrance).

Go Bulldogs!

Bulldog Fall Season Teams Compete, Win and Give to the Community!  

Football was alive and well in 2012 with both Varsity and JV Bulldogs taking huge bites out of the opposition with outstanding seasons. The WCHS JV Bulldogs combined offense + defense + special teams to complete a perfect 8-0 season, the program's first since 2002! The team topped off the year with an exciting victory over the  Sherwood Warriors, 28 to 13, on Nov. 3.  See Sports News for complete game details. A dozen of the JV Bulldogs joined the Varsity for the Maryland 4A playoff game vs. Northwest on Nov. 9, and, with 20 seniors leaving the program this year, have likely played their last JV game. The coaches

and players wish to thank the parents, siblings, cheerleaders and fans for all the help and support during an unforgettable 2012 JV Bulldog year!

The Varsity Football team also racked up a 'wow' season and
defended its Montgomery 4A South crown, going undefeated for a second straight year in conference match ups. While the team ended with a 7 - 4 record overall, this year was the first in more than a quarter century that the Bulldogs have made it to the playoffs in consecutive years. With such a strong JV contingent, several of this year's Juniors returning in key positions and six sophomores having played extensively this season, look for an exciting Bulldog 2013! See Sports News for further details about the Bulldogs' impressive season.

The WCHS Boys Varsity and JV Soccer teams enjoyed solid seasons this year. The Varsity team, led by head coach Arnold Tarzy, finished the season with a 7-7-1 record while playing the county's most difficult schedule. The team sported just two returning starting players, one of whom--Senior Crispin Muessle--has been recruited and signed to play for Bucknell University in 2013. Crispin was recently named second team All-State. The JV Soccer team, led by head coach Rodney Jean, finished the season with a 5-3-1 record. See Sports News for picture of graduating seniors and captains. Congratulations to the players and coaches!
