Sophomore Alexandra Sperling (10) scores the first goal against Richard Montgomery.
The Churchill Girls Field Hockey team rose to the challenge Friday night on two fronts — they maintained their undefeated record, shutting out Richard Montgomery 3 - 0, and they raised over $5,000 for Make-A-Wish MidAtlantic. On the field, sophomores Alexander Sperling, Regan Solomon and junior Faith Kean each scored, and assists were made by Kean, and seniors Jocelyn Kelley and Jenny Langerman, and junior goal keeper Juliet Twomey had two saves in goal.
On the sidelines, the team spent the week leading up to the game soliciting friends, families and local businesses to support their efforts to grant a wish to a child through Make-A-Wish MidAtlantic. Silent auction items donated by area businesses raised over $1,300 during the game. The players are hoping that by the week’s end donations online will launch them closer to $10,000 and allow them to grant a child’s wish.
