Coach Connelly and I want to say thanks to this year's GWCS coed flag football team and highlight a few moments of the season for our fan base. Our record may have been 0-3 but it does not do justice to the hard work our players put in, be it practice, games or the long ride in traffic on the way home.
We started and ended our season playing Chelsea School, Maryland. We began each meeting behind at the half but outscored them the 2nd half in both games. Josh was a pivotal catching machine and Noah played through a sprained ankle in our first trip to Hyattesville, Maryland. The return trip was a demonstration in perseverance. The first half was challenging, giving up 3 TDs and missing out on a first and goal on our first drive. We made some adjustments, both the coaches and players, which led to two TDs and lock-down defense. Our sandwich game was versus Kingsbury Day School. After a few postponements, we finally played on a field shoehorned into a park in NW DC. The Coyotes fought hard, led by Kylan's two interceptions, but alas, came up short.
I hope to coach many of you in softball this spring with Ms. Shu. But for now: We wish all the basketball players much success this upcoming season.
