Megan Salley scored two goals and Stefanie Brown and Christine Deska each added one as the Calvert girls soccer team defeated Thomas Stone on Thursday, 4-2. It was the Cavaliers' first win over the Cougars.
"In four years, we had never beaten them," Coach Jack Brown said. "I'm glad we finally got them."
Calvert (5-6-1, 3-3-1 in the SMAC) went 3-10 last season and has never finished a season above .500. But with three regular season games left--Leonardtown, Chopticon and McDonough--the Cavaliers have a chance to make history again. "Our goal is to win two of the last three," Brown said. "I think that's realistic."
PATUXENT: The Panthers are having the most successful fall in the school's three-year history of varsity athletics. The golf team won the District IV title, the girls cross-country team is undefeated and the football team was 6-0 before dropping Friday night's showdown with Thomas Stone, 41-0.
In addition, the volleyball team is 7-2 and ranked seventh in the Washington area, and the field hockey team has won three of its last four games.
"We've come a long way in a short period of time," Athletic Director Kim Roof said. "Each team has made significant improvements, and that's a credit to all the coaches and players."
NORTHERN: By winning in a meet against Lackey and Leonardtown on Wednesday, cross-country runner Alexis Wieroniey remained undefeated this season. Wieroniey, who placed sixth at the Maryland 3A meet last season, completed the three-mile course in 20 minutes 16 seconds.
Northern's Amber Ellis finished fourth in 22:39, Pixie Stack was seventh in 23:05 and Kristen Borros placed eighth in 23:11. Northern defeated Lackey, 15-50, but fell to Leonardtown, 31-25.
