Dear Booster Friends,
With this issue I say good bye as president of the WCHS Booster Club. New leadership will be elected this week, and in the coming weeks we will introduce you to the officers for 2013-14.
As I reflect on the year I think first about why I agreed to lead this organization. Sports have been such an important part of my life, and as an athlete, a volunteer youth coach, a personal trainer, a sports reporter, and a father, I have had the privilege to pass on my love of athletics to others. Being involved with the Booster Club has given me the opportunity—working with a wonderful team of dedicated parents and school staff—to help our children in some small way experience that same joy, and benefit from all that sports have to offer.
To see specifically what the Booster Club did this year to fulfill its mission—to help provide the safest, most competitive environment possible for our sports, and enhance the game experience for Bulldog spectators as well as our more than 600 student-athletes—click here.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your president.
Churchill Tennis proved that two is 'twice as nice' as two Bulldog pairs ended this year as state champions! The WCHS tandem of sophomores Hayley Keats and Sriya Movva won every game against Easton on their way to clinching the girls doubles title. Similarly, brother/sister combo senior Michael Gauch and sophomore Katie Gauch dominated their opponents from Winters Mill, 6-3, 6-1, to win the mixed doubles title. Congrats to each of you!

Congratulations to Varsity Baseball for clinching the Maryland 4A West Regional Championship in a 10-5 victory over rival host Wootton on May 17, after first beating B-CC, Whitman and Kennedy for the title. The team, shown in an early season photo below, went on to play Catonsville in an exciting match-up in the state semi-finals at the University of Maryland, but lost 4-3. See a Washington Post and Gazette photo slideshow of the Regional Championship win, Churchill baseball's first regional title since 1985.

WCHS Boys Volleyball accomplished the highest win record in the last three years, with a 7-4 record for the season. Coach and Churchill alumna Erika Eastham recognized the contributions of the seniors, shown here, by saying, “They gave me so many options with hitting and defense because of their experience. They were really the heart and soul of the team and they cannot be replaced, but hopefully their leadership and hard work will motivate the younger players to work hard for next season.” Many thanks to the players, coaches and fans for a great season.

The greater Winston Churchill High School community was shocked and saddened by the unexpected death on Monday, May 20, of sophomore Evan Michael Rosenstock, a varsity basketball player and a friend to so many. A moving vigil was held the following evening in the school main gymnasium, which was packed with family, friends, fellow students and community members. Several sports teams and other student groups gave further tribute to Evan by placing his jersey number, 34, on their uniforms and clothes. The community crowded the Congregation Har Shalom in Potomac on May 23 to pay their respects and remember the teenager with the great smile.

Churchill student-athletes needing physical exams to play 2013-2014 fall, winter and spring sports can get them at Churchill High School on Tuesday, June 18, starting at 5:30 p.m. Middle School students may also register for physicals.
Medical staff from Montgomery Orthopaedics will conduct the exams. The cost per physical is just $35. Proceeds will benefit the Churchill Booster Club and its sports programs. Get your exams out of the way now and avoid a last-minute scramble to get a physical before the start of the sports season. To schedule an appointment, please include the word "Physical" in the subject line of an email to email@example.com.
This physical exam meets requirements needed to play sports
in state public schools, but it does not replace comprehensive annual
exams or well check-ups provided by your family physician.
