B-CC Field Hockey To Open Season With Three Games In Two Days

by Eric Meany

After wrapping up the pre-season with a 3-0 victory over Bullis last Thursday, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School field hockey team had to do one more thing before it could begin its 2012 campaign:

Wait.

By the time the Barons play their first game of the regular season, it will have been eight days since the squad’s final scrimmage. There will be no break for the Barons after hosting Broadneck on Friday night, though, as they will be right back in action with games against Severna Park and St. Stephen’s & St. Agnes on Saturday as part of the Sally Nyborg Tournament at Roland Park Country School in Baltimore.

“We’re the last county team that plays a game,” first-year coach Ralph Goodwin said. “And it’s a long week, especially with the holiday weekend involved. Our girls are going to be chomping at the bit to play by Friday, and it’s just a matter of how do I harness that energy and have them not waste it all on Friday night when we still have two on Saturday to go.”

Lillian Herrick-Reynolds, right, and the B-CC Barons are hoping to pick up where they left off after spring break.

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School girls lacrosse team got off to a strong start this year, winning its first three games with a combination of good teamwork and steady goaltending.

After two close wins at home over Springbrook and Montgomery Blair and a 15-8 road win against Rockville, the Barons undeniably had momentum working in their favor.

Only one thing stood in the way of carrying that momentum forward through the rest of their schedule:

Spring break.

B-CC’s Martin To Graduate Early, Play Soccer At Wake Forest In The Fall

The Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School boys soccer team will lose junior Collin Martin a year earlier than expected, as it has been announced that the standout midfielder will graduate a year early in order to play for Wake Forest University in the fall.

From the Wake Forest website:

The 2012 recruiting class for Wake Forest men’s soccer, already ranked among the top five classes in the country by several websites, picked up yet another highly-touted commitment on Tuesday, March 27 when Collin Martin committed to the Demon Deacons for the 2012 season.

The third-ranked player in the class of 2013 by College Soccer News and the lone high school junior to train with the U.S. Soccer U-20 squad in January, Martin will graduate from Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland one year ahead of schedule and will round out the Deacs’ incoming class of eight players.

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.”
