The Churchill Girls Field Hockey Team has risen to the challenge over the past few weeks on and off the field — finishing the regular season with an undefeated record, shutting out Richard Montgomery 3 – 0; shutting out Wooten 4 – 0; beating Clarksburg 2 -1; and shutting out Kennedy 6-0.
On the sidelines, the girls spent the week leading up to the RM game soliciting friends, families and businesses to support their efforts to grant a wish to a child through Make-A-Wish Mid Atlantic. Silent auction items donated by area businesses and cash donations have raised over $6,000 to date, just short of the $7,500 required to fund a trip wish. There is still time to help support the team by making a donation online here!
Their first playoff game will be at home against Einstein on Thursday, October 27 at 5:15.
