Over the weekend, the GC Robotics team competed in their first robotics tournament in Baltimore, and their "alliance" won the tournament. It was a small tournament, and the team was paired with other strong teams, but the Falcons did their job well and made a solid contribution to their alliance's victory.

Coach Dr. Turcan spoke with the head judge of the tournament who was rather impressed with the GC team considering it was their first tournament. She noted their confidence and their ability to make the proper adjustments and fixes to their robot to overcome some early set-backs.

This win qualifies the team for the Maryland State Championship in March, as well as the US Open Robotics Tournament in Iowa in April.

The team is comprised of Matthew Spear '19, Tim Ge '19, and Josh Titus '19, John Cavanaugh '20 and Anthony Parra '20.

Though he won't be wearing blue and gold this time, Olympic Gold Medal winner Kyle Snyder will be wrestling at Good Counsel again. On Sunday, January 22, Ohio State is coming to GC to wrestle the Terps in a much anticipated Big Ten match. Snyder is set to wrestle in the 97 kg weight class.

The match is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. and is completely sold out.

Leading up to Christmas Break, it is a tradition at Good Counsel that faculty and staff bring in various food items, toiletries, and other sundries to be donated to the Little Sisters of the Poor. This tradition began under the late Father Barry Gross and is now continued by AP/IB Coordinator Andy Collins '82. This year, Andy, with the help of Joey Cabigas '82, was able to deliver 20 turkeys and 10 boxes of various items to the Sisters. Andy recently received the following letter from Sister Jeanne Veronique.

"Dear Mr. Collins,

On behalf of our "little family" of Little Sisters and Residents, I would like to thank you for your donation of the following item/s that we received on November 21, 2016.

* Assorted Food Items

With your support, we are able to continue our mission in providing care for our Residents who depend on us for everything, including a safe and comfortable home, delicious and nutritious food, medical care, love and friendship. St. Jeanne Jugan began our mission of humble service to the needy elderly in 1839. In our special mission of caring for those in need, we depend greatly on the goodness of friends and benefactors to help us with the means necessary to provide quality services and care to our 100 Residents.

Through the intercession of our Mother Foundress, Saint Jeanne Jugan, I pray that God showers you with His choicest blessings for your goodness to those in need. God bless you always!


Sister Jeanne Veronique, l.s.p.

Little Sisters of the Poor"

Giving back to the community is at the core of a Good Counsel education and it is extremely important to have the members of the GC faculty and staff lead by example. Thank you to everyone who contributed and helped keep this wonderful tradition thriving in Father Barry's honor.
