Fall Sports Buzz 2018

Brian Vaught
It was a soggy but very successful fall season for the Black and Gold! All ten of our fall teams (field hockey, football, flag football, girls’ and boys’ soccer, volleyball and cross country) represented our school with great pride and sportsmanship.
Here are a few highlights from each team:
  • Field hockey had a seven-win season highlighted by wins over Park School, Friends School of Baltimore, and Bryn Mawr School. The field hockey team finished their season with a 3-0 win over Dumbarton Middle School with their game played on Homewood Field at Johns Hopkins University.
  • Football finished their season on a high note, shutting out backyard rival, Gilman School 34-0 on Black & Gold Tailgate Day. Eighth Grade tailback Shuey K. ’19 led the team with another three-touchdown performance!
  • Sixth Grade flag football finished their season with great games against St. Paul’s School & Boys’ Latin.
  • Boys’ A soccer earned a spot in the conference semifinals with a 6-1 win over St. Ignatius while girls’ A Soccer placed as conference runner up honors in the girls’ tournament!
  • Both Boys' & Girls' B soccer teams had amazing seasons with several wins over our peer schools.
  • Our co-ed volleyball crew was again one of the area’s best Middle School programs, totaling thirteen wins!
  • Our cross country team saw steady improvements throughout the season highlighted by strong showings at both the Oregon Ridge meet as well as conference championships at St. James!
A special thank you to all of the Eighth Grade athletes who represented Calvert School this fall with class and leadership, we are grateful for your dedication to Calvert athletics. We look forward to a fun winter season and wish you all continued success!
Calvert School is a coed independent lower and middle school.
