        Bulldogs Springing into Action this Season

Congratulations to Varsity Baseball, which became the first spring sport to achieve 100% membership in the Booster Club during the first week in April! On the field this year, the Varsity team opened strong winning both games of a split double-header pre-season scrimmage against Avalon and Damascus High Schools. The Varsity Bulldogs went on to win their season opener against Magruder, along with games against Springbrook and Walter Johnson. Churchill suffered two losses (Quince Orchard and B-CC) and Monday's game against Whitman was rained out. The team is now looking for a win against Blair at 3:30 pm this Wednesday at home. Shown above is senior captain Eric Brodkowitz on the mound during the 1-0 win at home vs. Walter Johnson.

Coed Varsity Volleyball is led by experienced seniors Alex Wang, Daniel Liu, Raymond Roxas, Kaitlyn Hillard, Katherine Liu and Olivia Chao. Their teamwork, outside hitting and grit showed in an especially tough 3-1 match against powerhouse Richard Montgomery. Assistant Coach Cindy Hillard is optimistic about the season and is looking forward to more tough matches.

Boys Volleyball features veteran seniors Alex Fang, Andrew Tsao, Brian Chen, Jake Monson and newcomer senior Ahmad Al-Ali. “These guys have great chemistry on court and in practice and are really pulling together,” commented second- year Churchill coach Erika Eastham, who is a Churchill alumna.

More exciting volleyball is ahead, concluding with a Senior Night celebration at CHS between matches on April 28 vs Poolesville. Boys play at 5:15 pm and Coed starts at
7 pm. Come and cheer them on! At right, junior Alan Yan delivers a high-flying jump serve vs Blake Mar. 21 while Winston Churchill looks on.
