fieldhockeyblueThe girls Field Hockey team completed a very successful season in late October, which unfortunately ended in a second-round playoff game loss to Wootton. The team displayed exceptional balance throughout the season. While they truly played as a “team,” several of our Bulldogs were recognized with individual honors: 

Senior Carly Kabelac was selected to the first team all-county and all-Gazette teams; junior Annie Moshyedi was selected to the second team all-county and honorable mention All-Gazette teams; senior Sophie Ascher and sophomore Jocelyn Kelley were selected as honorable mention All-County picks.  Congratulations girls!  We can’t wait to see our field hockey Bulldogs in action next year.

Swim photo 1 revThe Swim and Dive team is looking forward to an amazing season for both girls and boys teams, thanks to its talented group of athletes.
While former coach Brendan Roddy, whose tenure was marked by hard work, enthusiasm and leadership over three years, will be missed, the team welcomes new coach Christopher Tappis.

Ice Hockey - Dixon v WoottonThe Churchill Ice Hockey club is off to a mixed start.The Varsity 1 Squad has opened with an impressive 3-0 League Play record (currently first place in their division).They began the season on Nov 7 against Whitman with a 10-0 shutout. Marcus Hurd, supported by the defensive squad, turned away just 9 shots on goal. Jacob Arden’s first period goal was followed by goals from Chris Barber, Philip Satin (Power Play), Justin Vagonis and John Taylor. Jacob Arden and Mark Weinstein had one goal apiece in the second period, followed up by back-to-back goals from Ross Allen. Jacob Arden finished the game with the last goal in the third period.

On Nov 12, the Bulldogs played an emotional non-conference game against longtime rival Gonzaga. This was their first meeting since the tragic death of Gonzaga Senior and star center, Dom Pettey. Many of the CHS players knew Dom and played with him on travel teams for several years. They began the game with a brief tribute to Dom then went on to lose a hard-fought contest by a score of 3-2.
The Varsity 1 (V1) squad faced off against Wootton on Nov 14 and came out on the winning side with a 6-1 victory. A week later, V1 beat Sherwood with an 11-0 shutout. Goalie Kendall Wong turned away 5 shots on goal.
The Varsity 2 (V2) squad has posted a 1-1-1 record against teams in a very strong conference. Their season opener against Walter Johnson ended in a 2-2 tie. Zachary Jacobs scored the two goals for the Bulldogs in the first period, but WJ rallied in the second period, posting two of their own. A week later, the V2 squad skated past RM for a 4-2 win. Four different players scored, with Alexander Abraham and Anand Chandrasekhar getting goals in the first period, Zane Begun with an unassisted tally in the second period, and Aidan Martin slamming the door shut in the third.
The V2 team fell to  BCC on Nov 21, with a 4-1 loss. The lone Bulldog goal was tallied in the third period by Adam Rosenbaum. But they have high hopes when they face off against Wootton on Friday, Dec 5 at the Rockville rink at 8:50 pm.
The Junior Varsity squad is working hard to get their skates a little sharper on the ice. They started the season on Nov 7 with a 1-1 tie against Maryland State rival Atholton, but fell short of wins in their successive games against BCC (6-0 loss), Gonzaga (3-0 loss) and Urbana (a close 2-1 loss). They are learning how to play in a tough league and are looking to improve on their record as the season progresses.
ALL Churchill Students, Teachers and Alums  are encouraged to come out and root for your favorite squad. You can find the entire season schedule at the Churchill Ice Hockey club website,
