The Huntingtown High School (HHS) Girls’ Soccer team was recognized Tuesday, Dec. 13 by the Calvert County Commissioners for recently winning the Maryland Class 3A championship. The squad was coached by Jill Twetten with the assistance of Jennifer Peshek, David Mongey and Mark Luppino.

The Lady Hurricanes are stingy and smart. The stinginess is strictly on the soccer field. During their championship season the ‘Canes yielded but five goals. Only two goals were registered by Southern Maryland Athletic Conference foes.

The intelligence transcends the playing field. According to HHS officials, all 20 team members are honor roll students. The players are enrolled in advanced placement and honors courses. Five seniors plan to play soccer or some other sport at a Division I or Division II college

“Everybody brings a different piece,” said Twetten. “They have support from the school, their parents and the community.”

“Thank you for acknowledging these young ladies,” said HHS Athletic Director Vashawne Gross.  “They worked hard.”

Noting that Calvert County has been previously recognized for its outstanding academics, Gross proudly pointed out county teams are excelling in athletics, too.

“Little old Calvert County is here,” said Gross.
