DeMatha Catholic High School’s ice hockey team snapped a four-game losing streak with a 6-1 win against Huntingtown on Jan. 23, a much-needed win before a heavy schedule the next two weeks.

Starting Feb. 1, the Stags play six games in 10 days, capped by a three-day tournament in Cleveland.

“They’re going to be great teaching games, especially in Cleveland,” DeMatha coach Tony MacAulay said. “We’re going to see great competition, which will make us better. We’re not looking past the next game. We’re approaching it the same way we do in practice. We do progression drills and we’re going to do the same thing in the next set of games, trying to get progressively better in each game.”

Against Huntingtown, the Stags jumped out to a 4-0 lead, including three goals in the second period. They led 6-0 in the third period before allowing a goal.

Spencer Keogh led DeMatha with two goals and three points. Garrett Hasken and Grant Grieco each had two assists. Andrew Malloy had a goal and an assist.

“We played very, very well from start to finish,” MacAulay said. “Several guys got on the scoreboard, which was nice. The only thing, and no disrespect to them, but we gave up a goal late. It’s that type of play that we want to correct. They played hard and they were very physical, so it was a good game, back and forth.”

Indoor track

Bishop McNamara senior Brielyn Rogers, suffering from flu-like symptoms and back pain, competed in the Last Track to Philly meet Saturday just to avoid rust, her coach said.

Still, Rogers won the long jump and triple jump.

“Once she went out there, I think her desire to win kicked into place,” Bishop McNamara coach Keith Chapman said of Rogers, who committed to the University of Tennessee. “… What she showed me today is a great thing to carry into college. When everything went away, she can go out and compete at a high level. That says a lot about her character.”

After her events, Rogers didn’t stick around Georgetown Prep too long.

“She went home to get in bed,” Chapman said. “But she ain’t missing no track meet.”

Wrestling

Saturday, DeMatha Catholic’s wrestling team is scheduled to begin its usual onslaught of postseason tournaments as the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference tournament is held at St. John’s Catholic High School. The tournament is scheduled to start at 7 a.m. Following that, the Stags will participate in the prestegious St. Albans tournament, the Maryland Independent State Tournament and National Preps.

A number of Stags’ wrestlers are hoping to make some noise at the various tournaments, including Logan Wilson (106), Lewis Riggs (126), Larry Lopez (132), Shane Wilson (138), Seldon Wright (152), Darryl Taylor (160), Clay Conaway (182), Mike Wilkerson (195) and Mac Meehan (220).

Swimming

Two new faces at Eleanor Roosevelt have added to the Raiders already dominant depth. Nguenar Ndao moved to Maryland from Senegal this fall. A member of Senegal’s Junior National Team, she is keen on a strong championship season. Ronnie Ssinabulya, native of Uganda, has added to the boys side. Hard of hearing, he participated in the Special Olympics in Beijing after the 2008 Summer Olympics.
