The Field Hockey team has been scoring high on the field and in the community with two benefit fundraising games in the month of September. In mid-month, CHS and Wootton joined together to fundraise for Active Minds (for more information, go to activeminds.org), a non-profit founded by Alison Malmon, a former CHS cheerleader and lacrosse player who graduated in 1999. Both teams raised over $200 that will go directly to support Active Minds' various programs to raise awareness for mental health issues and suicide prevention. The Bulldogs continued their generosity on September 27 when the Varsity and JV Field Hockey teams hosted their annual “Field Hockey Sticks It To Cancer” fundraiser games. Featuring pink socks, coaches in pink shirts, and a pink-lined field, the girls and parents raised funds for breast cancer research and awareness. The players, parents and spectators, including the opposing RM fans, contributed to the cause.

With 3/4 of their season completed, the Varsity Field Hockey has team posted a 6-3 record so far. The team creates a balanced attack with passing, defense, offense and constantly improving stick skills. Even in the three losses, the team has shown grit and determination. The most recent game, on September 29, was a heart-stopping and heart-breaking OT loss to B-CC, 2-1. Jenny Langerman scored with an assist from Dani Weinberg with just 1:36 left in regulation to tie the game. Goalie Sophie Asher provided an outstanding 14 saves.
Coach's Corner - Mike Fisher, Golf Team"Your Bulldogs continue their successful season as they won the District Championship on September 29 by 11 strokes over their nearest competition. The score of 291 was the lowest team total in at least 7 years. While the outcome was not a surprise due to the strength of our regular season, it was a testament to the team depth that the 4 top WCHS scores were the reverse of how the team individuals finished during the regular season."(For more details, click here to read the Gazette article.)
"On October 6, the Bulldog Girl golfers set a school, county, and state record with 8 girls qualifying for the States Championship: Lena Capoccia (scoring a 79, bronze medalist), Rebecca Bartko (80), Hanna Jia (81), Eunbbie Kim (81), Joddie Zeng (86), Aine Kenwood (86), Eowyn Pak (87), and Bethany Chen (89), with a narrow miss by Christina Poerstel. The top 5 Churchill girls also qualified for the County Invitational. The 8 girls along with 4 boys will represent Churchill at States, a record 12 golfers from one school."
