Boys lacrosse

The boys lacrosse team (2–0) steamrolled the Sherwood Warriors 12–4 Wednesday, continuing the team’s hot streak to start out the season.

Attackers Douglas Bruchalski and Garrett Wilcox along with midfielders Matt Anderson and Owen Roegge all scored multiple goals to lead the offense, while defenseman Chris Greenberg and goalie Jackson Parker had three forced turnovers and 13 saves respectively.

The team looks to ride their momentum when they return home to face the 3–0 Richard Montgomery Rockets Thursday at 7:15 p.m.

Boys tennis

The boys tennis team (3–0) crushed the Poolesville Falcons Wednesday 7–0 in their second straight sweep.

All singles and doubles players dominated their opponents, and shut out the Falcons. Once again, Evin Mcdonald didn’t play as he still was sick.

The team’s next game is Friday at home against the Paint Branch Panthers at 3:30 p.m.


The softball team (0–4) was outlasted by the Walter Johnson Wildcats 17–14 on Thursday.

Through most of the game the team had a strong showing, and tied the game up in the 7th, but the Wildcats were able to push out the score and seal the game in the final inning.

The team’s next game is Thursday at Paint Branch at 3:45 p.m.

Coed volleyball

The coed volleyball team (3–1) defeated the B-CC Barons 3–0 on Wednesday.

The team has been focusing on building stronger chemistry and making smarter plays on the court, and these improvements helped propel the team to a dominant match against the Barons.

“It’s always nice to beat B-CC because they are one of our rivals,” senior Maddie McGill said. “Working on fundamentals and our communication as a team I think will allow us to continue to make effective and smart plays on the court in games to come,”

Next, the Vikings take on the Richard Montgomery Rockets Friday at 3:45 p.m. at home.

Boys volleyball

The boys volleyball team (1–3) fell to the B-CC Barons 3–0 on Wednesday.

The Barons overtook the squad with strong serves that the Vikings struggled to return. Although the Barons won all three sets, the team put up a hard fight and stuck with the Barons during the heat of the sets.

The Vikings take on the Richard Montgomery Rockets Friday at 5:30 p.m. at home.
