Fight like Chase

CHESTERTOWN — With teenager Chase Dolgos on the bench as an honorary assistant coach, charting the opposing team’s shots, Washington upset visiting Muhlenberg, 46-41, Saturday, Jan. 6 in Centennial Conference women’s basketball.

Chase was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia 10 months ago, just after his freshman season of basketball at Kent County High School had concluded.

He has been undergoing treatment since March of 2023, and is still receiving chemotherapy, but is due to resume his junior varsity high school basketball career in earnest Monday, Jan. 8 when the Trojans travel to Colonel Richardson.

Chase’s first home game will be Tuesday, Jan.9.

On Saturday on Finnegan Court, in a show of support for 16-year-old Chase, coaches from both teams and Washington players wore orange ribbons. Family and several fans also wore orange, and there were several “Fight Like Chase” posters around the gym.

Washington head coach Alisha Mosley even had her fingernails painted with orange polish.

After the final horn sounded, Washington players ran out in the cold rain to celebrate with Chase ringing the victory bell.
