New Coach. New Season. New Success.

The legacy of Carroll basketball is one that boasts of undefeated teams, championship titles, and its fair share of professional athletes. The teams of the late 50’s and early 60’s made ‘Carroll basketball’ a term associated with excellence, and in the 80’s and 90’s Carroll achieved their goal to Bring Basketball Back. Every hill has its valley, but the hard work and dedication required to push a team uphill in the competitive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) has been assumed by Coach Michael Powell. Carroll’s varsity basketball team opened their season with a 63-50 home win over Thurgood Marshall Academy, a 2016-2017 DCSAA quarterfinalist. “We have set out a special task,” Powell explains, “to wake up the pulse within the basketball program and recreate the buzz about Carroll academics and athletics.”

Soup Kitchen Tradition of Service Continues

There have been quite a few changes at Carroll since the late 1970’s. Faculty members have retired, programs like engineering and robotics have been introduced, and girls can now be found learning alongside their male classmates. Despite the inevitable change that occurs as the season transitions, one constant is the dedication to service through volunteering at a local D.C. soup kitchen. A timeless and selfless tradition, put into place by Carroll legend Robert Hoderny, has become an integral part of the Carroll experience that still lives on today. The current partnership with Thrive DC allows students in the social justice course to have a practical application of the Catholic social teaching principle, Option for the Poor and Vulnerable. While our students are helping the poor, their lives are being transformed.
