B-CC Girls Soccer on the Hunt for Another Title

by Eric Meany

BETHESDA, Md. — For the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School girls soccer team to continue its recent success and capture its fourth consecutive state championship this season, coach Robert Kurtz believes he will have to employ a new approach to suit the current roster.

“We’re going to go a lot deeper this year than we have in years past,” Kurtz said. “We’re probably going to play 17 or 18 girls, and we’re really really young — we’re probably going to start two or three freshmen and a bunch of sophomores.”

“We graduated a great senior class last year,” Kurtz added, “so we’re learning to live without them.”

Former Barons Alex Doll and Vic Gersh, two players who Kurtz credits with providing 80 percent of last year’s offense, are now freshmen at Stanford and Villanova, respectively. In their absence, the team must look elsewhere to make up the goal scoring and leadership that the pair had provided over the past four seasons.
