ROCKVILLE – The Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School Lions and the Sandy Spring Friends School Wildebeests added another chapter to their heated rivalry on Thursday, Jan. 26 when the two teams clashed for the second time this season.

When the Lions and the defending champion Wildebeests met in November in a rematch from the 2016 PVAC championship game, Sandy Spring handed JDS its first loss of the year.

The Lions wanted to return the favor.

JDS remained undefeated at home and scratched one in Sandy Spring’s loss column by defeating the Wildebeests 61-54.


Boy cagers face challenges as hoop season begins

Seneca Valley came within a game of playing for a Maryland 3A state title last season but the Germantown public school has one of the county’s top returning players in senior guard Brandon Simpson.
A four-year varsity performer, Simpson averaged 13 points per game last season in leading the Screaming Eagles to a 3A state semifinal appearance.
Quince Orchard boasts perhaps the county’s top returning backcourt in seniors Johnny Fierstein and Matt Kelly who combined to average nearly 40 points per game last season.


How Sweet It Is!
