Girls Volleyball Playoffs: Sherwood 3, Walter Johnson 1

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Senior Alex Holston had a tournament-record 42 kills to lead the Sherwood High School girls volleyball team to a 3-1 (25-13, 25-21, 18-25, 25-12) victory over Walter Johnson in the semifinal round of the MPSSAA Class 4A State Championship playoffs at the Ritchie Coliseum on Thursday.

Sherwood High School senior Alex HolstonHolston set the tone early in the first set, getting kills on two of the first five points of the match as the Warriors took a 6-0 lead before the Wildcats called a timeout to regroup. Walter Johnson won the next two points before falling behind by as many as 15 on its way to losing the set by 12.

The Wildcats were much more competitive in a second set that featured eight ties and three lead changes before Sherwood ultimately prevailed, 25-21. Walter Johnson took the third set, 25-18, and seemed poised to give the two-time defending state champions one of their toughest tests of the season.

The Warriors returned to form early in the fourth set, though, winning eight consecutive points on Maddie Moyer’s serve to take an 11-2 lead on their way to a 25-12 victory and a third straight trip to the state final.

The Wildcats (16-2) lost for just the second time this season, with both defeats coming to Sherwood. In the regular-season finale for both teams, the visiting Warriors beat Walter Johnson in four sets on October 25.

Sherwood (18-0) will face Arundel in a rematch of last year’s final in the championship game on Monday. Arundel topped Eleanor Roosevelt 3-0 in the other semifinal match played Thursday.

Boys Soccer Playoffs: Northwest Penalty Kick Goal Waved Off In Overtime

With the score tied at one goal apiece two minutes into the first overtime period of the MPSSAA 4A West boys soccer regional semifinal game between Northwest High School and Walter Johnson on Saturday, the Wildcats were called for a foul in the penalty area in front of their own net. Walter Johnson’s players and coaches were livid at the officials over the call, earning coach Mike Williams a red card and senior Mateo Arenas a yellow.

Jaguars senior Curtis Wynne scored on the ensuing penalty kick, sending his Northwest teammates into a celebratory frenzy and seemingly ending the game. Seconds later, however, it became apparent that the goal had been waved off as the officials ruled that Northwest had encroached on the penalty area before the ball was kicked. On the re-kick, Walter Johnson goalie Ben Meyers stopped Wynne’s shot and play continued through two scoreless overtime periods.

Mark Meyer swimmingBy Eric Meany

In 2008, recent Walt Whitman High School graduate Mark Meyer had his trip to the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials cut short by obligations to his new school.

Like all incoming freshman at the United States Naval Academy, Meyer was required to participate in Plebe Summer, an intensive seven-week training program designed to turn civilians into midshipmen. So after finishing third in his preliminary heat and 36th overall in the men’s 200-meter butterfly at the trials in Omaha, Nebraska, Meyer traveled directly to Annapolis early the next morning to participate in Induction Day.

This year’s trials begin on Monday, and with his time at the Naval Academy behind him Meyer hopes to enjoy the experience more than he was able to four years ago.
