Potomac Squash: A Strong Tradition

Potomac's squash program has been one of the best in the area for the past decade. Watch this video to see what our coaches and players are saying about Panther Squash!

Girls Basketball: Driving Towards Success

On the court and off the court, the girls basketball team works together and lifts each other up. "Everyone does their part and we rely on each other's support," captain Alex Moran says. It's this unconditional support that helps the Panthers achieve success on the hardwood, in the classroom, and around campus.

Leaving It All on the Ice

Potomac's ice hockey team knows what it takes to win: an entire team. In such a physically and mentally demanding sport like hockey, players need to know exactly what is expected of them. "Each individual needs to know how they fit into the team and be willing to make sacrifices," Ryan Kelly says. When everyone on the team works together, the Panthers get results on the ice.
