AF JROTC VISITS IFLY
CHS’S Air Force JROTC visited IFLY indoor sky diving last Monday and engaged in lessons on physics and wind tunnels and how terminal velocity can be calculated using a Algebraic equation. Cadets then suited up, received flight lessons, and had two flights in the flight chamber. After their flights, the cadets calculated their terminal velocity and came up with figures very close to what their true number was. It was a very rewarding experience.

CROSS COUNTRY RACING STRONG
The Lady Wolves raced twice last week, Wednesday and Saturday. Mid-week the girls defeated Mesa Mountain View in a hot afternoon dual meet. Coming back for the weekend stint, the team ran to a second place finish at the Ojo Rojo Invitational. Ava Potts, Brooke Eversden, Lauren Kazaroff, Daniela Montufar, Lauren Copeland, Alyssa Lewis and Cydney Maxson were the top 7 scoring for the varsity team. In the freshman race, Destiny Hernandez ran strong for an 8th place finish. Congratulations, girls!
The boys also pulled double duty this week. The team was narrowly defeated by Mountain View but came back strong for a fourth place finish at Ojo Rojo. The boys were led by Gunner and Gabe Garcia, Kellan Chipman, Christopher Ishac, Tomas Soqui, D’Andre Watson, Jeremiah Hadnot, and Kaleb Ross with an average time of 17:55. Mario Fernandez ran for a 12th place finish and a personal best in the freshman race. Commendations to the boys for racing hard.

CONSTRUCTION ON CORNER OF ERIE AND CALIFORNIA
The City of Chandler will be removing and replacing the light post on the northeast corner of Erie and California. They are installing a Verizon cellular light post starting today. They will have some minor barricades on Erie that will not affect the flow of traffic while school is still in. However, during our fall break time frame, they will be doing the bulk of the high impact work that may impact traffic. The removal and replacement should take 2 – 3 weeks total.
