For a school of 600 kids to reach the Newman playoffs two years in a row is an amazing accomplishment and directly attributed to the hard work of our players and coaches.” This week the Cougars (5-1) will host the Villanova Wildcats (4-2) on Friday at 3pm.

Even in the most strenuous conditions he always leads and never tires.” Fuerth on the Lasers’ ability to compete for the Wilson Conference Championship, “our record is no indication of our abilities. We have the ability, but so does everyone else. So execution and a bit of luck could go a long way in the playoffs.” In a game with playoff seeding implications, the Lasers (1-5) will host the Brennan Cardinals (2-4) on Friday at 3pm .
