Gaithersburg High School Spring Sports Preview Capsules
The Trojans are looking to bounce back after finishing under .500 in baseball and women’s lacrosse last season.
The spring sports season begins today for Gaithersburg High School, and there are high expectations for all of the school’s sports teams. Here’s what to watch for from the Trojans this season:
Coach: Jeff Rabberman
Last Year’s results: The Trojans ended last season with a 9-13 mark, and they fell, 8-6, to Walt Whitman High School in the MPSSAA Regional quarterfinals.
Key returning players: Nick DeCarlo (junior, pitcher); Jake Thomas (sophomore, pitcher); Trey Martinez (sophomore, catcher).
Expectations for this season: “Our goal is to win every game. If you take any approach otherwise, you’re not doing your team or yourself any justice,” Rabberman said. “We need to take it one year at a time, and win our next game, win our next inning. We have a lot of returning guys coming back, and I think the guys really put a lot of work in the offseason. I think we can be very, very good.”
Coach: Edward Maloney
Last Year’s results: The Trojans finished last season with a 3-10 record, and they lost in the first round of the MPSSAA Regional Playoffs to Northwest High School, 17-9.
Key returning players: Alexandria Roth (senior, attack); Rachel Billon (senior, defense); Yasmin Reed (junior, attack).
Expectations for this season: “The team’s expectations are to be better than we were last year,” Maloney said. “We’ve been working pretty hard since last season ended doing the things we needed to do. The girls have been playing on Select teams, Club teams, they played in the winter, and they worked out pretty heavily in the offseason.”
