Fight Ends Blake vs. Churchill Basketball Game

A fight involving dozens of spectators and players broke out toward the end of a boys’ basketball game between James Hubert Blake and Winston Churchill high schools Monday night.

Recently other incidents during sporting events at Montgomery County Public Schools have occurred. Due to Covid spread, spectators had been barred from attendance at MCPS sports until January 16.

According to Capitol Hoops, which describes itself as DMV’s #1 Prep Basketball news & highlights service, the fight broke out with two minutes left in the game. Fans were then forced to leave the gym. The game was called with Churchill up by seven points, according to Capitol Hoops.

“I must say that it is extremely unfortunate that students consider fighting an appropriate response to disagreement,” said Chris Cram, Montgomery County Public Schools’ Director of Communications. “This is still being investigated and I will know more later today.”
