Conference championships are hard to come by for any sport in any conference. It takes a special group of kids with the right combination of academic and athletic dedication, commitment to growth and improvement, and a little talent to make the magic happen. This year we have won three different boys Big 8 Conference Titles: Track, Basketball, and Cross County. The common denominator in all three titles was three OUTSTANDING HUMANS!!
Adair Artis, Jonathan Mikovits, and Isaac Waldron were leaders on all three teams. Plus, each of them has a 4.0 or higher GPA and is a class act on and off the field. CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE THREE AND ALL OF THE REMAINING FABULOUS ATHLETES!!!!
SPRING SPORTS PICTURES
Posted below are the 2022 Spring Sports Portraits taken by two staff photographers from the Concord Chronicle: senior Georgia Weeks, juniors Caylin Bell and Connor Haire, and sophomore Rylee Sinden.
Team portraits should be added next week, as well as occasional action shots, were taken at team competitions.
We cannot thank our community enough for trusting our student photographers to take this risk and use their skills to benefit their classmates. This makes sports portraits affordable for our families and empowers our students. As always constructive feedback is appreciated.
