THOSE ARE BEARS!!!! Congratulations to the 16 of 2016


The Bears lost a tough game against GP. Down by 10 at half-time, the home team tied it up in the 3rd quarter and was engaged in a back-and-forth battle until the last few seconds. The final was 62-67 with Mark Ebo and Donnell Fryer scoring game high 18 points.


The 18-2 Bears claimed their 11th consecutive and 12th overall IAC hockey championship by beating a tough StA team 5-2. Their 17th win was earned against a very young, disciplined SSSA which played a tactical icing game to frustrate Landon, but the Bears prevailed 3-2.

On to MAPHL and Spaulding on Tuesday; though the WaPo lists the Bears as #1 and Landon has more points as well as beat the #2, MAPHL seeded the Bears as #3 in their tournament.

And we win! 046-X3

Both the JV and the Middle School teams are having great seasons!


Competed in the PHSRL Regional yesterday.
