The Woods is Hot This Winter

The Woods has experienced much success this winter in basketball and swimming! Each team has been putting forth effort and staying focused during practice and it has paid off on the court and in the pool.

The Varsity A Boys and Girls participated in the St. Andrew’s Middle School Basketball Tournament on February 4th. Both teams played with intensity and force. They demonstrated team work and left it all on the court. The Varsity A boys placed 2nd and the Varsity girls placed 1st, bringing home a plaque to display in the trophy case outside the gym.

Our basketball teams have been on a winning streak lately! The JV A boys and girls and the Varsity A boys and girls pulled off the sweep vs. Christ Episcopal School, coming out victorious in each game! Way to go teams! The Varsity B boys beat Norwood and Lab School to keep up their winning record. The JV B boys and girls are also playing tough, the boys had a huge win vs. Norwood and the girls beat McLean after a tough fight. Keep it up Mighty Owls!

January 28th was the Middle School Swim Championship at Holton Arms. Our Woods swimmers did not disappoint. The boys placed 7th out of 30 teams! Our girls, with only two swimmers, placed 16th out of 30 schools! Way to go swimmers! They will have their last swim meet on February 8th at Stone Ridge. It has been a great season, thanks to Coach Hohman!

Check out photos from these competitions in the Winter Sports Album on Vidigami. Be sure to upload photos that you have taken at these events to the various albums on Vidigami.

We can’t forget about our lower school athletes! The 1st – 4th grade Friday basketball clinic has been having a blast! They've been working on honing their skills, playing in scrimmages and ending each clinic with Basketball Trivia. When a student answers the trivia question correct, they choose an 8th grade counselor to play one-on-one. A few of our 2nd and 3rd graders have pulled off the win, you can see the celebrations in the pictures. Check out the photos in the LS Basketball Clinic Album on Vidigami.

Keep up the hard work Mighty Owls! Don’t forget to follow us on twitter @woods_athletics to keep up with what’s going on in sports!

Congratulations to Natalie Yang, our February Student Athlete of the Month!
