John Kalavritinos… to Join Bucknell Men’s Golf Team in 2017-18

Kalavritinos is currently finishing his senior year at Landon School in Bethesda, Maryland. He has been a member of the varsity golf team in all four of his years at the Upper School and captain for the last two. He earned First Team All-Met honors from the Washington Post as a junior in 2016, and a year earlier he was a Montgomery County Second Team All-Gazette selection.

So far, Kalavritinos has helped lead his Landon team to three IAC league titles and a pair of Metropolitan championships. He has a low 9-hole score of 32 and a low 18 of 67, and he tied the school’s all-time scoring average record with a 36.4.

On the junior golf circuit, Kalavritinos owns a top-5 finish at the 2015 AJGA Cobblestone Creek (73-74-76) and a top-10 at the AJGA IZOD Irish Creek (71-68-72). He qualified for the Optimist Worlds in 2014. Kalavritinos raised over $5,000 for the Jack Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation through the AJGA Leadership Links program. That made him a top-7 fundraiser nationwide and earned him an invitation Palm Beach, Florida to meet Jack Nicklaus with the other AJGA finalists.

“John comes off of an exceptional summer and fall season that included multiple top-10 AJGA performances and sub-par rounds,” said Binney. “Dipping under 500 nationally on Junior Golf

Scoreboard, John’s game is set to help the Bison the week he steps onto campus.”





























Bears are 11-0. They beat Bullis 10-8 and then DeMatha 13-8. The team’s schedule is a bear; the record of the eleven teams that they have played is 83-29 and two of those teams are undefeated other than their losses to Landon. Of the eight teams yet to be played, two are undefeated, two are the top teams in their states (California and North Carolina) and collectively own 68 wins (the average would be higher except a very good Gonzaga has a number of tough losses).


The team has THE GAME of the season on 4/19 against the Purple Eagles


Bear are now 5-0 with a Win 5-2 over St. Stephen’s and St. Agnes School. Coach Miller did not reveal in his previous tennis notes that he had recently beaten his wife——-as coaches of respective tennis teams. As revealed by Landon Twitter, the Landon tennis team beat the McDonough team coached by Mme Aurelie Miller, who remarked after the matches :” Nous avons perdu juste et carré”

Apologies to all of the Bear ruggers who are playing college rugby, my list of players was eaten by cybergremlins. If anyone who knows of a Bear playing, please let me know (

Fortunately, the following story came to my inbox:

Men’s rugby team wins regional, will play in national tournament

Apr 11, 2017

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. — The Colby College men’s rugby 7s team won five matches in the Northeast Qualifier Tournament to advance to the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) National Championship.

The Mules had wins over University of Rochester (33-12), Hobart College (42-0), host Plattsburgh State (21-5), University of Maine (30-7), and the championship game victory over Babson College (22-20).

Nathan Huebschmann led the team in tries on the day (6) and co-captain Jack Sears earned tournament MVP honors

Sears converted most of the team’s tries throughout the tournament, including the difference-maker against Babson. He also made the biggest play of the tournament. After kicking the ball off to Babson, he forced a turnover off a tackle and passed to Huebschmann for the eventual game-winning try.
