By Ben Dross, Sports Editor

CHS had nine athletes named to The Washington Post AllMet fall sports teams for their outstanding athletic abilities.

Each sport has a first and second team, along with honorable mentions.

Julia Reicin placed second in the 4A regional championship with a 19:04.92 in the 5000m. According to, she is ranked second in the county amongst girls. She made first team AllMet for girls cross country thanks to her fast times.

“For years I have enjoyed looking at this section in the paper, but couldn’t imagine that I would make first team,” Reicin said. “I am extremely excited for this honor.”

Senior defender Austin Hsu also made AllMet for boys soccer. He helped guide CHS to a 9-6-1 season. Their dominant defense, which he was a part of, held opponents to just 16 goals in 16 games.

The CHS field hockey team had a dominant season, going undefeated en route to a second place finish in the State Championship. The success led to a slew of players making the AllMet field hockey team. Senior midfielder Jocelyn Kelley led the way with second team honors, while sophomore forward Alexandra Sperling, juniors goalie Juliet Twomey and midfielder Faith Kean were given honorable mentions.

“I feel incredibly honored to be selected,” Kean said. “However, our success last year was truly a team effort. I am so proud of our team and everything we accomplished this year.”

CHS girls volleyball was also dominant this season, posting a 19-2 record. Junior libero Michelle Tai received an honorable mention.

“I’m honored to be recognized in such a way,” Tai said. “However, I wouldn’t be able to be half the volleyball player I am today without the guidance from my coaches and the support from my teammates.”

The girls soccer team had a pair of AllMet athletes on its 10-2-2 squad. Senior goalie Danielle Katz earned second team honors as she only allowed four goals on the season. Senior defender Frannie Phillips put up big numbers on the offensive end, scoring seven goals, tied for the most on the team, and adding five assists.
