“This team is like a family to me,” said Northwest senior Chaya Riggs, as she addressed reporters after Monday night’s straight set victory over volleyball powerhouse Dulaney High School at Ritchie Coliseum in College Park, to bring home Northwest’s first ever Maryland State Volleyball Championship. The Lady Jags defeated Dulaney in straight sets 25-19, 25-21, and 25-20 win the championship. Riggs knows better than most how important the bond between teammates can be. Less th
Coach Mike Neubeiser's Northwest Jaguars, are the best three-loss football team in the country as they proved in Friday night’s thrilling 50-40 victory over Quince Orchard to advance to the 4A State Semi-Finals. The Jags lost three games this year to three other teams that all made the post-season — Seneca Valley, Sherwood, and this Quince Orchard team. After last night, Northwest is the only team whose hopes of winning a state championship remain alive. While no one is shock
The opening kickoff set the tone for the entire game for Seneca Valley. Damascus won the coin flip and deferred opting to get the ball in the second half. The kick was short and instead of going deep to one of the return men it was handled, or mishandled by an up-back. While Seneca Valley was able to recover the fumble, it was a harbinger of things to come. A game in which Seneca Valley hoped for redemption ended with a blowout 45-3 loss to a bitter rival. Damascus’ superstar
Sometimes teams win because of experience, and sometimes because of athleticism. The best teams will have a combination of both. That is what the 19-0 Northwest Jags used on Wednesday night to defeat 23-1 Severna Park Falcons in four games, 20-25, 25-14, 25-19, 26-24 to earn a spot a second straight spot in the 4A state championship game. However, the victory did not come easy. After dropping the first game, the Lady Jags were up two games to one, at the Ritchie Coliseum in C
The Northwest Jaguars sent a message to the other teams in the 4A West playoffs from the very first play from scrimmage in Friday’s opening round game of the playoffs at Richard Montgomery High School in Rockville. The message was, “We are still the two-time defending State Champs.” The message as sent via a 74-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Mark Pierce to junior receiver Reggie Anderson in one snap of the ball. The Jags took control and never looked back, up 7-0
Adrian Feliz-Platt and the Seneca Valley football team travelled to Linganore on a mission to earn the right to make things even — to earn a rematch with rival Damascus next week. However, they would have to get through the unbeaten Linganore Lancers to earn that rematch. Feliz-Platt and Eagles came out screaming and jumped to a 20 point lead in the first quarter. Feliz-Platt scored three of his four touchdowns in the first quarter. “We just don’t want to go home. We want to
