Fall Sports Assembly
Last Thursday the CHS Wolves celebrated Fall Sports and the kickoff of football season with an assembly and lunchtime tailgate party. The highlight of the assembly was the unveiling of the 2015 Soccer State Championship banner. Band and cheer performed, and each fall sports team was introduced. The Varsity Football Team ended the assembly with the Haka. Wolves are ready for a terrific Fall Sports Season!
This weekend 15 CHS soccer players supported Si Se Puede’s 2015 CSL/SSPF Soccer Kick-Off at Frye Elementary. The boys trained over 400 children in kindergarten through 6th grade. CHS Soccer gave out T-shirts to the children who showed great hustle, sportsmanship, and manners. Great job, Wolves!
