Jason Crump

In this week's Panther Applause we would like to recognize CHHS Staff Member, Jason Crump. Mr. Crump is in the Science Department.

"Crump has been extremely helpful during the transition into using new technology and a new online learning platform through Canvas. He has gone out of his way to help his peers, myself included!"

Panther Tennis

Panther tennis moved to 4-0 in district play (6-1 overall) this week vs Denton High School. The Panther's won all 19 matches and played with class and sportsmanship. MVP of the match was Sumay Patel. Returning from full form from a hamstring injury, Sumay won his doubles match 8-0, and his singles match 6-2, 6-0. Sumay is a member of the leadership team and a team captain. He continues to provide great leadership to our program on and off of the courts.

debate team

Congratulations to the debate team for their performances at the Newman Smith and Lovejoy tournaments the past two weekends. At the Newman Smith tournament one week ago, the Public Forum team of Samarth Bhat and Alex Lee debated their way to the semifinal round. Junior Fatima Rizvi placed second in Lincoln Douglas debate. This past weekend at the Lovejoy tournament, Shahina Chatur and Judy Zhu were in the quarterfinals of policy debate. Sophomores Hannah Lewis and Zeke Stalnaker won the tournament in Public Forum debate. CHHS debate alum Katelynne Shadman has been instrumental in helping Hannah and Zeke reach their level of success. CHHS alum Jenn Melin has been helping Fatima with her arguments. We'd also like to thank Sim Guerrero for the work that she is doing with Shahina and Judy.

All of these tournaments are online tournaments. The competitors often compete from their homes in a virtual setting, requiring adapting to that environment, and finding new and unique ways to communicate with their teammates and coaching staff. It is a challenge, but one that we are willing to take on. We are hoping that our first year debaters get excited about debating and will attend virtual tournaments soon.
