Cold Springs High
November 2019 Edition
A Successful Ending
By: Nick Griffin
There’s a lot of hardware returning to Cullman County after Saturday morning’s AHSAA State Cross Country Championships. The Cold Springs Eagles captured the blue map in the Class 1A/2A race and the Lady Eagles lost a tiebreaker to Whitesburg Christian Academy to finish as state runner ups. This year’s Cold Springs boys are the first team in school history to finish the season as undefeated state champions and head coach Casey Howell was very proud of the way both his teams competed on the biggest stage to finish stellar seasons.
“We had talked about coming here and doing things the right way for the people that came before us and the people that are going to come after us and we constantly look back and remember the Cold Springs teams from the past. We just wanted to be a part of that history and looking back, one of the things they told me from the beginning is usually there will be one let down per season where the guys just don’t bring it so we talked about each week making sure we’re focused and we bring it,” Howell said. “It was a total team effort this year because we had a great season and went undefeated, but it wasn’t always the same five. For a lot of our season, our number seven runner today was our number five. There was no pride on this team, there was a lot of humility and everybody was genuinely happy for everyone else. We weren’t out there trying to beat each other; we were trying to run for each other.”
“We had a lot of mottos this year but the big one was we just wanted to remember “Who am I?” and remember that we’re children of God,” Howell said. “We constantly ask them, ‘Is what you did today glorifying to God?’ and I think that brought a realization back to them that everything they do does matter and its just been a magical season. I don’t think a team from Cold Springs has ever gone undefeated.”

I am not sure where the time has gone. We are already midway through the second nine weeks, and it feels like we just started. In just a short period of time our students have already accomplished so much this year, and we are just beginning. I want to personally thank you for taking the time to read our first monthly newsletter. This is a new process of sharing our school experience with all of you who share an interest in our school. As the principal of Cold Springs High School, I consider it an honor to work with a dedicated school staff and supportive parent community. Parental involvement in a student’s education is very important to us at Cold Springs. We strongly encourage parents to partner with our school to help create a positive relationship so that we can all serve in the best interest of our students. We are proud to be a high-performing school that is part of a high-performing school district. We have made it our mission to inspire students, challenge learners and prepare leaders. It is my goal to continue to find innovative ways to continuously improve our school so that our students receive the high quality education they deserve.
