Emilia is an exceptional passer.  She chases down every ball constantly.  She has an excellent ball control.  Her tremendous serve receiving helps the team run the offense accurately.  She is one of the key players assisting the team win both IPSL and MIAC tournaments.” – Head Coach Vicki Kitsembel

“Jamila Coons was selected as Athlete of the Month because of her dedication to our cheerleading program.  She is one of the three captains for our squad.  She also was recognized by the coaches for her dedication at our Little Orioles Cheerleading Clinic and for the brief showcase at the Seniors’ Night.  Her strength as a base person for stunts will be sorely missed by our squad as she will be graduating this year.” – Head Coach Dani Hernandez

“DeBrian John is the biggest unsung hero on the team.  He is our starting center and nose guard.  On defense, our opponents had to double team him which created plenty of space for our linebackers to make plays.  On offense, he is one of the main reasons why we are having so much success on the ground this year.  As one of the captains, he has been our vocal leader throughout the season.” – Head Coach Ryan Bonheyo

Girls Volleyball – Oriole Classic Champions

Last Saturday we hosted 7th annual Oriole Classic volleyball tournament and there were a total of 10 varsity and 8 junior varsity teams participating.  The day was filled with so many exciting matches, especially the varsity championship match between MSD and Heritage Academy.

Heritage Academy was undefeated (20-0) going into the championship match and we defeated them in a nail-biting match, 2 to 1 (23-25, 25-23 and 15-12).  This is our second straight and third overall title.  Heritage Academy has one player on their team who is being recruited by University of Maryland.

Our JV team went undefeated in pool play but they lost in semifinals and finished third.

Congratulations to our girls and coaches!!  Head Coach Vicki Kitsembel and her coaching staff (Krystle Berrigan, Chrissy Rowinski and Tamara Jo Coleman) did a fantastic job.

We want to thank everyone who helped out with the tournament.  Our booster club led by Dawn Schriver made it possible to have a successful tournament. There were many volunteers from the community who helped out with scorekeeping, statistics, admissions, concessions and other things.

Once again, thanks to everyone and congratulations to our girls & coaches.
