Varsity News

 

Varsity Baseball

Bears (8-2; 14-8) beat StA in an exciting 5-4 semifinal and then lost to GP in the finals. Won regular season.

Varsity Golf

The Landon Golf – there is a great story about senior and Loyola-bound Morgan Egloff and the coaching/mentoring by Coach Duquette.

Varsity Lacrosse

The Bears finished the season 20-2 and took home their 30th IAC title. They had to beat a Bullis team that was determined to win, but didn’t have enough to beat the Bears. Then, in a classic battle against Georgetown Prep, Landon won 14-9.

It is important to put this season in context. Coach Bordley’s team faced a VERY demanding national schedule. Of the teams that they played, six were league champions:

  • St. Mary’s (MIAA- A),
  • Gonzaga (WCAC),
  • Calverton (MILL),
  • John Carroll (MIAA-B),
  • Robinson (VA5),
  • Winston Churchill (MoCo 4A/3A South)
  • McCallie (TSLA and #1 in their region per laxpower.com).

Plus Robinson and Churchill could win their state championships.

Finally Landon played against five teams which are listed in IL’s Top 25 (05/13/2015).
