A Recap of the Winter Sports Season

Coaches and athletes share their favorite team moments

Winter sports seasons have wrapped up giving athletes a chance to relax and reflect on their seasons.

Girls basketball worked hard this season and coaches say players improved.

“This team was so much fun to teach and it was great to learn from them,” Head coach Ellen Allen said. “We split wins with Fauquier High School.”

As soon as the season came to an end, Allen turned her attention to next season.

“I want to change the way that my girls play defensively, so we can score more,” Allen said. “We improved so much over the season!”

Boys basketball also had a memorable season. Varsity coach Troy Washington was thrilled with how well his team performed.

“I had a lot of fun this year coaching my boys,” Washington said. “It is always amazing to see them grow.”

The season was filled with highs and lows.

“We had an up/down season as there were some moments of growth and experience gained against some really tough competitors,” Washington said.

Washington is also looking ahead to next season.

“We will miss the opportunity not to continue playing, but there is always next season that we can keep preparing for,” Washington said.

Joseph Golimowski, varsity academic team coach, is thrilled that his team had an undefeated season.

“It has been our best season since 2012, when we won the Northwestern District tournament and went into regionals with an undefeated record.” Golimowski said.

The team improved on several levels.

“We were more knowledgeable this year, but our speed at answering has increased dramatically,” Golimowski said. “Helping us to beat the other team time and again to the buzzer.”

CoEd varsity swim also had an undefeated season.

“We had a great season,” Adair said. “Both the boys and girls went undefeated and both won district championships.”

Adair is proud of her team’s success.

“We accomplished our success as a team,” Adair said. “We had great leadership from our eleven seniors, their enthusiasm and attitudes were incredible and that helped lead the underclassmen.”

Rounding out the winter season was varsity wrestling.

“I thought the season went very well,” Head coach Mike Foy said. “We had a very young team with only one senior, yet we still qualified for the state tournament.”

The young team’s hard work and dedication to the sport paid off.

“I think that we improved the most on our defense, stopping our opponents attacks and scoring from those attacks,” Foy said.
