BSN does not always get to the courts or the course often enough, but based on other reports, it looks like the Bears who swing racquets and clubs are doing well!

No one wants to lose a tennis match. But in the Landon School boys tennis team’s case, consecutive one-court losses to defending Interstate Athletic Conference champion St. Albans and former seven-time IAC champion Bullis School might have served as a springboard into the second half of the season.

Since announcing themselves as a legitimate threat to those two top IAC teams in close losses, the Bears have won two consecutive matches.

Landon followed last Tuesday’s lopsided win against IAC and crosstown rival Georgetown Prep with a 4-3 win on Friday against perennial Washington Catholic Athletic Conference power Gonzaga.

These results are huge for a team trying to reestablish itself as a contender in the IAC after several down years. The Bears are quite young, and this year’s success, coach Adam Atwell said, makes for a promising future.

Landon is also making a case for itself as a top-three finisher at the season-ending Ben Johns tournament.

“I think this year, regardless of what happens, we’re just looking for experience. That’s the most important thing right now,” Landon sophomore Raman Ananthanpillai said. “If we can win big matches as freshmen and sophomores, then it will be much easier when we’re seniors.”


Golf: Landon upends Georgetown Prep

By Josh Barr,  The Washington Post

Led by a pair of younger players, the Landon golf team Monday scored its biggest victory in five years.

Sophomore Brent Bubes shot 1-over par 36 and freshman Morgan Egloff carded a 39 as the Bears beat Georgetown Prep, 205 strokes to 214, at Bethesda Country Club for their first victory over their Interstate Athletic Conference rival since 2007.

Landon improved to 12-0 by beating the team that has won the past six IAC titles.

Bubes “is having a really good year for me,” Landon Coach Jack Duquette said. “He’s had several rounds under par in very big matches.”

Brendan Peel led the Little Hoyas with a 37.

The IAC tournament is Monday at Congressional Country Club.


BSN will be at Satterlee-Henderson Field for today’s Bears’ Lacrosse game vs. StA @4:30pm; hopefully there will be a report in time for tonight’s list serve distribution.
