The New Tech High @ Coppell for the North Texas YMCA MUN Spring Regional competition this past weekend at Reedy HS in Frisco was a lot of fun for the delegates.
This was the first time that several of our delegates served on the rigorous Security Council. All delegates were leaders within their committees and refined their skills of oral communication, collaboration, and knowledge and thinking about real world problems. All while writing official docket style resolutions that they would then have to defend. Their sponsors Mrs. Boyd and Mrs. Shaikh are proud of all the delegates.

Wrestling Team Headed to State (See highlighted names for our NTH@C wrestlers)
It was a long weekend in Allen but in the end the Coppell Boys and Girls Wrestling teams are sending 13 wrestlers to the State Championships.
The Coppell Girls Wrestling team captured the Region 2 championship this past weekend in Allen. The team scored point with all 10 wrestlers in route to a 201 point performance, which is a regional record. The team easily defeated last years regional champion Euless Trinity who had 147 points.
The team had all 10 wrestlers place in the meet and qualified eight wrestlers and one alternate for next weekends State Championships.
The team was led by Regional Champions Lindsay McIntosh and Amanda DeVaul. McIntosh needed just 44 seconds to pin last years regional champion, Katelyn Allen of Lewisville, in the 185 pound weight class. She improved her record to a perfect 34-0 and won her third region title.
DeVaul pinned nationally ranked Jackie Mote of Rockwall, in the second period. She won her first Regional title.
The team had three other wrestlers make it to the finals. Junior Khushi Khandelwal, senior Allie Baudhuin, and sophomore Brooke Massivoil finished in second place.
Sophomore Sricherry Nannapaneni and freshman Devin Patton finished the meet in 3rd place and Senior Gaby Reynoso finished 4th.
Freshman Ananya Sampathkumar finished 5th and is a state alternate. Freshman Leilani Hernandez finished the meet in 6th place.
The Boys were led by senior Joe Montealegre's 3rd place finish. His only loss was to the states top ranked wrestler. Senior Frank Rusch and Junior Taylor Lee each finished in 4th place. Senior Julian Garcia was 5th place and is a state alternate. Three other wrestler, senior Carter Colclasure, junior Nico Yut, and sophomore Parker Odette finished in the top eight.
Coppell assistant coach Ted Witulski was named the Region 2 Assistant Coach of the Year and I was named the Regional Head Coach of the Year.
The team will compete in the UIL State Championships this coming Friday and Saturday at the Berry Center in Cypress, Texas.
The rookie class is hosting a day long, cross-curricular project on February 28th. If you are interested in being an evaluator of the project, please click here.
Genesis Women's Shelter Drive
Did you know that 70% of human trafficking victims are women and girls? Did you know that 35% of women experience physical and or sexual violence? It sounds so crazy that 700 million women were married as children worldwide and 250 million were married before 15. Our Geometry classes have partnered with GENESIS Women’s Shelter. This is an organization created to help the victims of domestic violence - in order to create some different statistics.
What can you do to help? NTH@C is hosting a drive for the Genesis Women’s Shelter summer camp kids. We are currently collecting sunscreen, chapstick, sunglasses, flip flops, healthy snacks & drinks, arts & crafts supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, arm floaties, and life jackets. There is a drop off box at the front entrance of the school.
Thank you for supporting those who in great need!
If you have questions, please email Mrs. Osterberger,firstname.lastname@example.org .
The normal application window is open! Please click the application link for details.

The Cowgirls won their 6th District meet in a row with a 142 point performance, easily defeating Lewisville and Flower Mound. The team put all ten wrestlers in the finals and qualified all 10 for the UIL Regional meet.

The Cowboys finished 2nd place to Flower Mound and ahead of Hebron, Marcus, and Lewisville. This is the squads 16th year of finishing in the top two in the district. The team avenged a loss to Hebron just 3 weeks ago in the Jesuit meet. The team qualified nearly everyone to the regional championships next weekend at Allen.
The boys were led by Senior Joe Montealegre who won his 3rd district title. Junior Taylor Lee was also a district Champion with a dominating 20 second pin in the finals. Seniors Carter Colclasure, Kyle Abramson, Frank Rusch, and Julian Garcia were all tournament runners-up. Junior Nico Yut and sophomore Jackson Briscoe were also finalists. Senior Thomas Edwards and Freshman Jo'el Hernandez were 3rd and sophomore Parker Odette and freshman Sohaib Mohommed were 4th. Freshman Siddarth Chintalapudi was 5th. The team was missing one competitor due to illness or would have qualified all 14 to advance.
This past weekend, we hosted a National Regional, with 40 other winter guards competing in the same class as our Varsity team. They were split into four preliminary rounds with only eighteen advancing to finals. CHS Varsity WON their prelims round and advanced to finals in second place. After the finals round, they hung on to second place and earned the second highest score in the country so far this season! This is a HUGE first for the CHS Winter Guard.
We never put the focus on scores, winning, or rankings, but in the moment, this was an amazing moment for our performers. They continue their season with a performance at the Dance Department Showcase on Wednesday the 21st, and then the WGI Austin Regional on March 3/4. If you have a Varsity Winter Guard member in one of your classes, give them a pat on the back for their incredible growth throughout the last year and a half. They have quickly become one of the best in the state!
