As Kenwood’s winter sports season is beginning their Fall Sports season concluded with their annual Fall Sports Awards Ceremony on November 30. It was great to see all our athletes back on the fields or the gym for a full season of wins, losses, and continued growth.

Several teams made playoff runs. The girls’ soccer team reached the Regional Semifinals and ended their season with an 8-5 record. The boys’ soccer team also reached the Regional Semifinals after a nail biting 1-0 win over Aberdeen. They ended their season with a 7-6 record.

Our cheerleading program continued their strong tradition with 2nd Place in the BCPS Championship and qualified for the Regional Championship at Harford Community College.

Our Bluebird football team found themselves with home field advantage for the playoffs. They ended their season with a 4-6 record.

Several athletes stood out on our badminton, cross country, and golf teams. Doubles Team Autumn Rohe Grade 11 and Mercy Oshobu Grade 9 qualified for Baltimore County Championships. Ryan Lingner finished 12th in Baltimore County Championship and shot a very respectable score 87 in the District VI Championship. Terrence Greene, Ayanna Alark and Emmanuel Gatu competed in Regional Championship.

Our volleyball team grew this year as they fought hard through a 9-7 record. Our Allied Soccer team competed in a full soccer season and are hopeful to adding their first ever Bocce team this winter.

Gabe Priet and Ayanna Alark were selected to participate in the BCPS Student-Athlete Leadership Conference which was held at Eastern Tech on Friday, Dec 2.  “They took part in fun activities and interacted with other student leaders from across the county.  I was told Gabe and Ayanna did a great job representing Kenwood,” shared Kenwood’s Athletic Director Coach Ruocco.

Along with their time and dedication to their athletics, 96 student athletes were also recognized for All Academic and Minds in Motion achievements for having between a 3.0 and 4.0. Ten student athletes (Kenzie Kerner-soccer; Camron Wilkens-football; Josh Olowajana-football; Maddy Diallo-volleyball; Maggie Woodring-volleyball; Emmanuel Awujo-badminton; Chiamaka Martins-badminton; Ayana Alark-cross country; Sejani Sanders-cross country; and Maddi Cardarell-soccer) had a perfect 4.0 while twenty-one student athletes carried a 3.8 or 3.9 this Fall.

It was great to see our student athletes back on the athletic playing fields representing their school community.
